Butterscotch Apple Toffee Bars, an easy fall dessert recipe with graham crackers, toffee, butterscotch, apple chips, and walnuts.
These Butterscotch Apple Toffee Bars are a fun fall twist on my popular Crack Bars (Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Crackers) that I posted this summer. Remember those? They went crazy on Facebook so I thought I’d do another version. These Butterscotch Apple Toffee Bars are more of a fall version full of fall flavors. They are just as easy to make as the Crack Bars, and perfect for fall parties!
Let’s talk about these toffee bars first… These toffee bars aren’t exactly cookies and aren’t exactly candy. They’re kind of in between and the best of both worlds. You start with a layer of graham crackers. Then pour a simple sugar and butter toffee mixture on top. Add some crushed apple chips. Then melt butterscotch chips on top and add chopped walnuts.
There are a lot of layers, but they are super easy to make!
If you’ve never had apple chips, they are crispy dehydrated apple slices. I would NOT substitute fresh apple slices in this recipe. I didn’t have a problem finding apple chips at my local grocery store in the produce area near the apples but they may be in the snack aisle at other stores.
You can easily substitute your favorite flavor of graham crackers as well as different kinds of nuts. Chopped pecans would also be great! I like to add a little salt to the walnuts for more of a sweet and salty taste, but that it totally optional.
Instead of butterscotch chips you can also substitute chocolate chips if you’re not a butterscotch fan.
One last thing about the Butterscotch Apple Toffee Bars…I like to cut them into fun odd shapes like bark candy, but feel free to cut them into squares.
Here’s a quick video my son put together to show how it all comes together…
Butterscotch Apple Toffee Bars Recipe
- 8 graham crackers (might not need all)
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup crushed dried apple chips
- 11 ounces butterscotch baking chips
- 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line a 9x9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly spray with nonstick spray.
- Place crackers in single layer of pan to cover the whole bottom. Break the crackers as necessary to fit.
- Spread brown sugar on the bottom of a small saucepan. Cut butter into about 8 slices and place on top of sugar. Place pan on top of medium-high heat and without stirring bring to a boil. Let boil about 2-4 minutes or until smooth and brown in color.
- Pour toffee mixture (sugar and butter) over graham crackers and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Bake for about 5 minutes at 425 degrees F to set.
- Sprinkle apple chips evenly over crackers then sprinkle butterscotch chips on top. Place back in oven for about 2-4 minutes or until chips start to melt. Remove from oven and spread chips to form a thin layer.
- Sprinkle chopped nuts on top and gently press into butterscotch chips. Cool.
- Place in refrigerator for about an hour or until butterscotch sets. Break or cut into pieces.

I made these butterscotch apple toffee bars yesterday, and was thrilled with the flavor. What a great idea to combine these items in this way. The cracker toffee is always a hit, and this puts a unique spin on it. Now I need to go buy more dried apples so I can make more. There are so many people I would love to give these to as gifts and I want everyone to taste how great they are. Thank you for this recipe and a new item for my rotation.
