- Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers Recipe
To switch up the graham cracker chocolate recipe, I chose to use Toblerone as opposed to a regular chocolate bar. You’ll love the fancier twist and the added crunch!
Tip 1: Substitutions for Toblerone or graham crackers.
I love the Toblerone and graham cracker combo. If you don’t have Toblerone or graham crackers, check out the substitution section down below.
Tip 2: Microwave the Toblerone in short intervals
Once chocolate burns, there’s no going back! It only takes a short window for the chocolate to pass the point of no return. That’s why I like to microwave it in 20-second intervals. Remember to stir the chocolate after each interval, too!
Tip 3: How do I know if my chocolate is burnt?
Burnt chocolate looks dry and is difficult to stir. It will also smell unpleasant. If you end up burning your chocolate, you will need to toss it out and start again.
Tip 4: Add sprinkles for a festive feel
I only like to add sprinkles to the top section of the graham cracker so that you can see all three layers: graham cracker, chocolate, and sprinkles. For a fun twist, try different sprinkle shapes and colors.
- Toblerone chocolate is the star of this recipe. The Swiss milk chocolate and honey nougat crunch adds the perfect texture to these treats. Plus, using a quality chocolate bar makes the biggest difference with simple recipes.
- Graham crackers add another layer of crunch and subtle sweetness to these treats. You can use any brand or variety you’d like.
- Sprinkles go on top of these graham crackers chocolate treats for an extra bit of fun and some beautiful color! I mean, isn’t everything better with colorful sprinkles?
- Baking sheet: You’ll need a large baking sheet to lay all of your chocolate covered grahams on. I prefer using a rimmed baking sheet to prevent them from sliding off. If you don’t already have one at home, I highly recommend adding it to your Amazon cart!
- Parchment paper: Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper prevents the treats from sticking and makes clean-up a breeze.
- Microwave-safe bowl: This is necessary to melt the chocolate in the microwave. You can use any size or variety of bowl as long as it’s microwave-safe.
- Microwave: I chose to melt my chocolate in the microwave because it’s quick and easy. If you don’t have a microwave, you can use a double boiler.
Substitutions and variants
- Toblerone substitutes: Instead of Toblerone, you could use dark or milk chocolate chips or chocolate wafers. To really mix it up (or please a peanut butter lover in your family), try peanut butter chips or a combination of chocolate peanut butter chips.
- Graham cracker substitutes: The great thing about this recipe? Chocolate goes with everything! You can substitute the graham crackers for shortbread cookies, pretzels, waffle strips, pound cake slices, or Oreo cookies in a pinch — or try a combination!
- Red sprinkles: I used red sprinkles, but you can get as creative as you want with your sprinkle colors. Try different sprinkle shapes (star, round, flower, confetti, rod) and different colors (rainbow, etc.) to match any occasion and taste. For an interesting twist, try a sprinkle of sea salt on top!
What are graham crackers?
Graham crackers are sweet, almost cookie-like snacks that can be used in several desserts.
One of the most common graham cracker recipes is a s’more, which combines two graham squares, a toasted marshmallow, and chocolate to make an indulgent sandwich.
Since graham crackers pair well with chocolate, chocolate covered graham crackers are a no-brainer!
Is there a close substitute for graham crackers?
Above, I shared a few great substitutes for graham crackers. However, the closest substitutes (taste and texture-wise) would be cookies, like Nilla wafers, shortbread, Biscoff cookies, etc.
Can you freeze chocolate covered graham crackers?
You could try freezing these dipped graham crackers, but the chocolate may form condensation as it comes to room temperature. This could interfere with the texture of the grahams.
To best store these chocolate graham crackers, I recommend keeping them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
