Graham Cracker Crack


I apologize in advance for this. Blame Trisha Yearwood not me.

I have no idea how I stumbled upon her recipe for Sweet and Saltines but, sigh, I did.

We received something similar to this from a dear friend as a christmas present. Not sure if the kids liked it because the grown ups ate all of it before they even knew it existed. Oopsy. They can discuss this injustice with their therapists when they grow up.

Trisha’s recipe sounded great, but I balked at using that much butter. Someone commented about how they were swimming in the butter when making it. That was not appealing to me. I took it from 2 sticks in the original to 1/2 of just 1 stick. Decreased sugar also.

I don’t make too many sweets beyond muffins because I just can’t control myself. I am pretty sure I blew through the rest of my WW points just taking these suckers off the sheet pan and putting them into the container and taking a nibble here and there. Holy cow. They are REALLY good. Sweet, salt, crunchy, cookie like. Took like 10 minutes to make start to finish – home run!

Be afraid, be very afraid. These break down will power faster then Anthony Weiner breaks down on his promise not to text pictures of his stuff.

Graham Cracker Crack
Inspired by Trisha Yearwood’s Sweet and Saltines Recipe
  • 10-12 graham cracker sheets
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Maldon or kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • pinch more of salt for finishing
  1. Oven to 450.
  2. Line sheet pan with foil. Arrange graham crackers touching each other on the pan. I had 11 sheets of crackers leftover in a box and it just missed filling up the sheet.
  3. Microwave butter for 30 seconds – more if not melted. Stir that together with brown sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour over crackers as evenly as possible. Use back of spoon to spread it out over entire cracker.
  4. Into oven 5 minutes, take out and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Wait a moment then use back of spoon to spread melting chips all over graham cracker surface. Spread walnuts on top and finish with a pinch of salt sprinkled over entire thing.
  5. Into freezer until chocolate hardens up. Break into pieces and store in either fridge or freezer.
