Easy Praline Bars

We've added this recipe to the web site because so many people have asked for it. It comes from Carrie Groth (cook in 1999 and 2000) and is included in the Summertime Sailing Cookbook that she published in 2000 (unfortunately, no longer in print). They are super simple and super yummy!

12 Graham crackers*
1Sstick butter
1/2 Cup light brown sugar
1/2 Cup chopped pecans

Arrange graham crackers on a baking sheet. You'll want them pretty close together so the topping stays on top of the crackers.

Melt butter and add brown sugar. Stir continuously over low to medium heat for two minutes...to just before boiling.
Pour the butter and sugar mixture evenly over the crackers.
Sprinkle the chopped pecans on top and bake for 10 minutes at 400°.
Cool before removing them from the pan. Break apart and enjoy!

* Graham crackers come in a variety of flavors now; chocolate is quickly becoming a favorite on board for use in this recipe.
