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

Salted Caramel Pecan Toffee Bars

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). While you are at it, try our saltine cracker candy, or our Disney churro toffee copycat, it is delicious!

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.

      1. Hi April,
        We usually cut these into bars and freeze them for up to 3 months, if there are any left or we are making them ahead. Hope this helps.
        TSRI Team Member,

    1. Yes, you can omit the whipping cream. I’ve made this many times for years. I’ve never known of whipping cream to be added until I found this site, but I do believe it would still be as amazing as it is without it!!
      I know you asked this in 2021, but it might help another person to know the answer!

  2. I think this was the Carmel Sauce recipe

    In a saucepan, bring brown sugar, butter and heavy whipping cream to a boil, over medium heat, stirring often. Once melted and smooth, add vanilla.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      We usually cut these into bars and freeze them for up to 3 months, if there are any left or we are making them ahead. Or they will stay fresh up to 5 days in an air tight container or cookie jar. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Judith,
      We have not tried this but because it measures the same it should work. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!
      TSRI Team Member,

  3. This was unbelievably delicious! So easy to make also. I didn’t have graham ccrackers so I used Ritz crackers. I made it for Thanksgiving and everybody loved it. It was eaten up right away. I made another batch while everyone was still there and it was gobbled up also. Already I have requests to make it for Christmas… Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

  4. Can you mix the nuts into the caramel sauce after cooking to glaze them right before pouring it onto the graham crackers?

  5. 5 stars
    Can’t wait to make these !
    Wondering has anyone made them using Chocolate Graham Crackers ? I think that might be interesting

  6. I have READ and LOOKED everywhere for the Carmel Sauce part of the recipe and can’t find it. HELP! I must be going blind. LOL 🙂

  7. 5 stars
    So delicious! Also, very quick and easy to make! I made these to take to family for the holidays, and I am not sure they will make it out of my house! Lol!

  8. How long will these last in a cellophane bag if made for gifts? Don’t want to freeze. I need to make in mid November, will they stay fresh if wrapped tight in a crisp cellophane bag for a month until Christmas?
    Thank you
