Salted Caramel Pecan Toffee Bars

Incredibly easy 7-ingredient Toffee Bars recipe! Quick homemade caramel sauce and pecans make this a tasty treat!

With the holidays approaching, now is the time to finalize your holiday baking!

I don’t know about you, but I usually have a baking list a mile long, so I’m all about any dessert that doesn’t take a lot of time, OR a lot of fancy ingredients.

I love these toffee bars because they use ingredients I usually have here at home anyway, and they’re ready in about 20 minutes from start to finish (not including cooling time).

That’s a holiday baking game-changer!

Hey guys, it’s Amanda from The Chunky Chef.  I love being a contributor here on TSRI, and will be here sharing some of my favorite recipes each month!

I look forward to bringing some of my midwestern flair and enjoying some treats together.

These salted caramel pecan toffee bars would be fabulous on any dessert platter, but they also make a fabulous edible gift!

Great for teachers, neighbors, bus drivers, postal workers, co-workers, or as a hostess gift.

  • This recipe uses graham crackers instead of the traditional saltine crackers, because I love the sweet nuttiness they bring.  You can substitute saltines for them if it’s what you have on hand or prefer.
  • The quick homemade caramel sauce is super easy, so don’t be intimidated by making it yourself.  I promise, you CAN do this.
  • If you prefer a different nut, you can use an equivalent amount of your preferred nut (such as peanuts, cashews, etc).
  • To save on time, I buy the chopped pecans, but if you have larger pieces, just chop them with your knife.
  • Don’t forget to line your pan with aluminum foil… the last thing you want to be trying to clean up is baked on caramel sauce!
  • For the chocolate lovers, feel free to spread or drizzle melted chocolate over the top.


  • Jelly Roll Pan - the perfect size for the graham crackers to lay in one layer, and it’s such a versatile pan!
  • Offset Spatula - spread the caramel sauce with ease, in an even layer!  Great for desserts of all kinds.


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. Pecans and Toffee are always a great combo. Love these bars. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  2. My mom used to make these but instead of sprinkling with salt she would make them on ritz or saltine crackers.

  3. How do I make the caramel sauce please

  4. Very good and very easy. Always a great combination!
