Easy 10-Minute Graham Brittle

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Janelle

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

What a fast, easy and delicious treat. These would be great for get-togethers, cookie trays, bake sales, or just as a treat for you and your family. I can see why this recipe made it into Lavender Lynn's Top Favorites of 2009 cookbook. Thanks for sharing this gem, Janelle. Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Tag Game.

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.
