Easy Praline Graham Crackers Recipe

Praline graham crackers are made with graham crackers, butter, brown sugar and chopped walnuts. They are an easy dessert or snack the whole family will love.

I was given this recipe by my day care provider many years ago and even though my son is now in high school, he still loves it when I make these for a snack and around Christmas time. They also make a fun addition to a brunch menu.

Sometimes simple is just better, right? Although I love a recipe that combines a lot of ingredients and transforms into something new, sometimes all you need are a few basic pantry items to make a yummy sweet creation. With this recipe, the humble graham cracker gets transformed into a tasty dessert.

The term “praline” means some type of confection made with nuts which are stirred into a boiling sugar syrup. In this recipe the boiling process changes the flavor of the butter and brown sugar into a deep rich caramel flavor that complements the graham crackers. Praline also firms up after it has cooled so you can transport and store your graham crackers easily.

This recipe makes a big batch, but they tend to disappear quickly. If you live in a humid climate, keep these in an airtight container as graham crackers sog out quickly.
