Recipe by MA HIKER
These defy description - are they a bar cookie? Or are they candy? Either way they are delicious, very very easy to make. I always make these at holiday time and I also make a big three batch amount to donate to my church's "cookie walk" at our holiday fair. Of course everyone LOVES them. I got this recipe years ago - one of my first years of teaching from a regular substitute teacher who brought them in to share.
- 1 1⁄4 cups butter or 1 1⁄4 cups margarine
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 cup chopped walnuts or 1 cup pecans
- 15 whole graham crackers (can be honey graham or plain)
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1⁄4 cup colored sprinkles
Directions See How It's Made
- In an 11 by 17 inch jelly roll pan, lightly greased, place whole graham crackers side by side.
- I also cut strips to fill in all the open spaces so the whole pan is covered.
- Bring the butter and brown sugar to boil.
- When bubbly add the chopped walnuts or pecans and bring to boil again.
- Pour over graham crackers.
- Bake 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips.
- They wont fully cover the crackers.
- Turn off the oven but put pan back in for a minute or two to help the chips melt.
- Then take the pan out of the oven and spread the chips over the bars with a spatula.
- Sprinkle the colored nonpareils on top of these after spreading the melted chocolate to add a festive look.
- Let the bars cool for 1 hour or so and then cut them into little squares with a sharp knife.
- They might break up a bit when you do this but then it is fun to eat the scraps!
- Keep these in a closed container in the fridge.
