I just want to take a moment to give some respect to a holiday confection that I love. To a confection that more people need to make, eat, gift, and generally embrace as important a holiday tradition as cookies.
'brickle' on Serious Eats
Well, well what do we have here? Graham crackers layered with toffee, dark chocolate, cranberries, walnuts, and fleur de sel? Something that's crunchy, sweet, salty, chocolatey, nutty, and fruity? Yup, sounds like holiday crack is back.
There's a reason that brickle is also called 'crack'—this stuff is crazy addictive. Graham crackers are baked with a quick homemade caramel then given a layer of melted dark chocolate scattered with cranberries and walnuts. A sprinkle of fleur de sel takes it over the top.
