Quick Holiday Dessert: chocolate caramel graham crackers

chocolate caramel graham crackers

by Rivky Eisenberg (www.yumkosher.com)

This is the quickest, simplest recipe for a gourmet tasting and funky candy I like to think of as toffee bars.  I got this from the Jan, 2003 issue of Gourmet Magazine and I love to have a batch of these on hand in the freezer for family snacking or to serve to guests I want to impress.  It also makes a great hostess or kiddush gift.

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
