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.
