Graham Cracker Toffee is one of the easiest desserts ever and is so delicious! There is a reason it is also called Christmas Crack – it is addicting!
Happy St. Nick’s Day! I made you some Graham Cracker Toffee to celebrate! I’m sure a lot of you have never heard of this holiday, and are probably wondering why I have graham cracker toffee in a shoe…
St. Nick’s Day is the feast day of St. Nicholas, and is celebrated by leaving a shoe outside your bedroom door the night of Dec. 5. St. Nick comes in the night and fills your shoe with sweet treats! This holiday is celebrated in many European countries, and in the US it is celebrated in cities with a strong German influence – like St. Louis! Growing up we always celebrated St. Nick’s Day at school and at home.
This Graham Cracker Toffee might look slightly familiar…that’s because the recipe is nearly identical to the Chocolate Saltine Toffee that I made last year. I just replaced the saltines with graham crackers! This type of toffee is so easy to make, and is really fun to decorate for Christmas – that’s why I wanted to make a new variety this year! So many Christmas desserts can be rather time consuming (hello chocolate shortbread cookies), so it is nice to have an easy recipe to turn to when you want something festive and pretty but quick!
You often hear this called Christmas Crack – and that is because this graham cracker toffee is addicting. Seriously, you can’t stop eating it. It is sweet and salty and crunchy and chocolatey – I am going to have to give this away ASAP or I might eat the entire batch!
Hope St. Nick filled everyone’s shoes with sweet treats last night!! TheBetterHalf is very confused by this holiday and thinks it is made up – I say any holiday that involves someone bringing me treats sounds like a good holiday to me!
