Graham Breakaways, similar to saltine cracker toffee also known as “Christmas Crack” during the holidays – except these use graham crackers.
Graham Breakaways #recipe
Christmas is fast approaching and though I love giving homemade goodies to my friends, family and neighbours, I’m not a fan of doing a marathon baking challenge the week before Christmas. So, near the end of November, you can find me in my kitchen, making Christmas desserts. Most cookies and squares freeze very well, so I bake and freeze as I go. It eases the stress of the holidays, knowing that I can focus on shopping and menu planning, the week before Christmas. And I love having holiday desserts, for those unexpected guest, during this time of year. These cookies are super simple and freeze beautifully. They are also very versatile; simply choose the nuts and chocolate chips you prefer and you are all set. This year I went with some slivered almonds and red/white/green chocolate chips/ sprinkles. These are similar to a popular recipe for Saltine Cracker Toffee Cookies, but I love the graham crackers best.
