Lost recipe with graham crackers

A roommate many years ago made me cookies made with graham crackers. You boiled together sugar, butter, maybe had some added baking powder/soda at the end. It was poured over a pan of graham crackers which soaked it up. I think there were almonds sprinkled on at the end?

It was such a simple recipe that I never wrote it down and then after not making them for a long time, forgot the recipe. Help please!

  1. I have with saltines and one with graham crackers.....


    The crackup recipe:
    Preheat oven to 400
    1 1/2 sticks margarine or butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 "stack! Premium saltines
    1 10 oz bag Peanut Butter chips
    1 12 oz bag Chocolate chips
    1/2 - 3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)

    Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with one layer of saltines
    Melt the margarine or butter and brown sugar together and pour over saltines
    Bake in oven 5 minutes
    Sprinkle with chips
    Bake in oven for 1 minute
    Spread chips with spatula
    Top with nuts if desires or "decorative" sprinkles
    Place entire sheet in refrigerator
    When completely cooled and hardened break up into pieces

    graham crackers:

    The Cracker Brittle recipe is easy:

    Foil line a cookie sheet. Fill with as many graham crackers as possible. Bring to a full boil two sticks of butter and 3/4 cup of light brown sugar. Make sure it boils to a rise. Pour over crackers and bake at 400 for 5 mins. Remove and add milk chocolate chips (or whatever flavor you like) to the crackers. Bake 3 mins. Remove and spinkle candy beads. Refigerate until hard. Peel foil off and break apart. Enjoy.

    hope that helps.

    1. I have one at home like that. They are Praline Cookies, and I use pecans, but I'm sure almonds would be great, also. When I get home I'll find it and post if for you. I don't remember using any baking powder though. I googled praline cookies made with graham crackers, and found a bunch, but I don't think they are the same as mine, but I could be wrong! It's been a long time since I've made them.

      1. Thanks for the replies. I'll have to buy some graham crackers this weekend!!

        1. I used to make this all the time, but I'm not sure where my recipe card is now. I would line a baking tray with graham crackers, then sprinkle sliced almonds on top, then pour over a brown sugar/butter combination. It would bake in the oven for a while, then I would top with chocolate chips, pop back in for 3 minutes, take out and smear the chocolate around. Very yummy. If I can find the recipe in my renovations mess, I will post for you.
