VARIATIONS ON PECAN PRALINE TOFFEE BITES

  • Crackers: Use other crackers or cookies instead of graham crackers like Saltine crackers, vanilla wafer cookies, chocolate graham crackers, Oreo cookies, or Teddy grahams.
  • Chocolate: Melt ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and pour over each muffin cup before (or after) adding the pecans. You could also use dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or butterscotch chips. Instead of melting the chocolate, sprinkle chocolate chips with pecans.
  • Cinnamon: Stir in a 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, or Pumpkin Pie Spice for more holiday flavor in your Pecan Praline Toffee Bites.
  • Rum: For a southern praline flavor, add 1-2 tablespoons bourbon or Tennessee whiskey to the toffee mixture while the butter is melting. You could also use rum extract for the boozy flavor without the punch!
  • Creamy Praline: Stir in ½ cup heavy cream, evaporated milk, or buttermilk to the butter-brown sugar mixture and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until foaming. Continue recipe as usual.
  • Mix-Ins: Sprinkle with chopped candy canes, English toffee bits, mini chocolate chips, festive sprinkles, or any other baking add-ins you like. Swap pecans for hazelnuts, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, or almonds!
