The butter and brown sugar make a toffee like taste, but the chocolate mixed with the candy melts gives it a creamy texture. It’s crunchy on the outside, yet melts in your mouth!

  1. What size pan did you use – a cookie sheet or a jelly roll pan? Also, how many graham crackers – one package or more?

    • I use a larger size cookie sheet as seen in the photos (about 18″). It will not take an entire box of graham crackers (about 10 full crackers broken down).

      • making for a party of 50+ people….10 crackers is equal to this recipe? How many crackers should I use??

  2. My kids and I just made this! Oh my! It’s delicious. I think I’ll have to make more because it’ll be gone quickly!

  3. have you tried using white chocolate chips instead of candy melts? Wonder if it makes a difference?
