12 Days of Cookies: Claire's Turtle Graham Bars
It's time for 12 Days of Cookies, FoodNetwork.com's annual cookie swap. Each day visit us here on the Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give – or keep – from favorite Food Network chefs. Then visit Cooking Channel's blog for great takes on holiday baking from Cooking Channel chefs and Food People alike – cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.
Turtles are a true American classic, and they’re even better in Claire Robinson’s bar form with a graham cracker crust to hold them together. Melted dark chocolate poured over a toffee made of pecans, sugar and butter on top of the crackers make Turtle Graham Bars a multi-layered delight. For a little bit of subtlety, sprinkle flaky sea salt on them either before or after cutting.
