- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper and cover with graham crackers to act as the base for the bars.
- Melt both kinds of butter, brown sugar, pecans, and pumpkin spice seasoning over medium-high heat until melted, and mixture starts to low boil.
- Stir continuously, 3-5 minutes.
- Remove mixture from heat. Immediately pour over graham crackers, spreading evenly. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, double boil chocolate chips to melt (You can melt in the microwave in 30-second intervals, but double boiling gives a silkier texture and is easier to control, so you don’t overheat).
- (Optional) Pour melted chocolate into a piping bag.
- After the toffee has baked onto the graham crackers, top hot toffee with apples. Do this immediately, before the toffee starts to set. You want your apples nestled into the toffee, not sitting on top.
- Drizzle with chocolate (either pipe or you can use a spoon!).
- Sprinkle with Maldon salt.
- Chill in fridge 2-3 hours before serving.
- Cut into squares and enjoy!
- This recipe will save in the fridge for up to 3 days.
