Use another function. debug_backtrace() returns an array that you can loop through, format and save:
$data = debug_backtrace();
Or use output buffering for the formatted output string:
ob_start(); debug_print_backtrace(); $data = ob_get_clean();
It's possible to do it with even less code, actually. Avoid the overhead of buffering with...
$error_string = (new Exception)->getTraceAsString();
That gives you the exact same output as debug_print_backtrace() stored to the $error_string variable.
And if you want to get more information for a more valuable stacktrace (line numbers, local object vars, etc.), try...
$error_string = print_r($e->getTrace(), true);
To add on to the answer given by @HoldOffHunger, the following would have been sufficient for logging purpose:
