Graham Break- Aways
I came across a great baking blog called Lick the Bowl Good and found this super easy yummmy treat!
Graham Break-Aways from Kraft Foods
• 12 Graham Crackers, broken crosswise in half (24 squares)
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter
• 3/4 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
• 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
• 1/2 cup Pecans, chopped
1). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange the graham crackers (I used cinnamon grahams) in a single layer in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
2). Place the butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 2 minutes. Pour molten mixture over grahams...
3). And immediately spread to completely cover all crackers. Basically, that means don't take time out to take pictures because the sugary lava will harden quickly and it will be impossible to spread. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
4). Once the sugar mixture is bubbly, remove from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Return grahams back to oven and bake for an additional 1-2 minutes until chocolate melts.
5). With the back of a spoon or an offset spatula, spread chocolate evenly over caramelly sugar.
6). Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Carefully press the nuts into the chocolate so they stick, but be careful because they're HOT!
7). Cool completely. Break into 24 squares and enjoy!
Other Variations: Substitute white, milk or dark chocolate for the semi sweet morsels. Use regular, cinnamon or chocolate grahams for the base. Sprinkle with peanuts, almonds, pistachios or even add dried fruit such as cranberries, cherries, apricots...or marshmallows! The possibilities are endless.
