Recipe by Karen..

These are a CHOCOLATE Lover's Fantasy :) Two layers of chocolate delight with graham crackers in between. I have no idea why they are named "By-Cracky" (except for the crackers) since it is one of those recipes I had written down at one time or another over the years, but make often because they are incredibly yummy :)

I was hoping for more of a cookie-like texture, but I found them to be very dry and crunchy. I followed the instructions exactly so perhaps it's the way they're supposed to be. Sorry I couldn't give a better review.
