Easy 10-Minute Graham Brittle

I discovered this recipe this Christmas and have gotten rave reviews from everyone who has tried it. A whole baking sheet of this stuff seems like a lot but I guarantee you it will disappear! The brown sugar an butter combine to make an almost caramel-like taste. It's super easy and takes less than 10 minutes to make. Toppings are optional as this also tasted delicious plain. * for a lower fat version, use low-fat graham crackers and light margarine

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First, preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Then place graham crackers in a single layer on the baking sheet. Line them up so that they're touching on all sides, like a grid. (Make sure the baking sheet has sides on it.).
  3. Bring brown sugar and butter to a boil in a saucepan.
  4. Pour the brown sugar and butter mixture evenly over the graham crackers, coating each one evenly.
  5. Put the baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes.
  6. Take the baking sheet out of the oven and evenly sprinkle the milk chocolate chips on top of the graham crackers. Let them melt for 30 sec-1 minute. Then spread them around to coat the graham crackers with chocolate.
  7. Sprinkle on your desired topping or leave it plain! Crushed cereal not only tastes amazing but also uses up the crumbs in the bottom of the bag :).
  8. Chill in the refrigerator until chocolate has hardened. To save time, you can also pop it in the freezer.
  9. To serve, use your muscles and a metal flipper or pizza cutter to break it up into pieces.

We love these! There was a bit of disagreement about how many get coconut on them, but those went first anyway, so no problem. A little care is needed to spread the chocolate without messing up the toffee too much, but a rubber spatula worked. As easy as advertised but took a little longer. Made for Pick A Chef, April 2009.

Wow, this was really good! I just happened to be looking for a way to use up our graham crackers and coconut so this was perfect. It was incredibly easy and came out really tastey! I used cinnamon graham crackers and tried the coconut and peanuts for toppings. I also and added mini marshmellows to one of the squares to see how it would taste, (also good). I feel like there are endless possibilities for toppings- I will be making this again!!
