The bottom sticks to the foil and it is wet RECIPE EDITOR'S NOTE: Make sure that you are using heavy duty foil. Also make sure that the mixture boils and bakes long enough.

This toffee bar has been a Christmas treat in my family as long as I can remember. My grandmother always made them. She used graham crackers for the crust and she always put those little tiny round multicolored cupcake sprinkles over the walnuts. Since her passing last year I have taken over making these bars, and they are so easy and still a hit!

I use graham crackers instead of soda. I'm adding this to all my Christmas goody tins this year.

These are soooo good!


I make these every year for Thanksgiving, and Christmas. They are so easy to make too. Everyone can't get enough of them and they taste so YUMMY!!! I can't wait we're making them tonight for Thanksgiving tomorrow.
