Praline Bars


This is one of our family's favorite little treats! They are made from simple ingredients, most of which you usually already have in your kitchen. You can vary the topping to your personal likes. And it's easy to whip up in case you need a quick dessert or snack for something.

Praline Bars
Almost 2 pkgs. of graham crackers (unbroken)
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup topping of your choice:
pecans, Heath bars, Butterfingers, etc., all crushed
*****
Line a jellyroll pan with the graham crackers. You may have to break up your last one to fit at the end of the pan. Combine the butter and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for about 3 minutes, until thick. Pour over the crackers, spreading to cover all the crackers. Bake at 350F for 12 minutes. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the crackers and begin to spread them as they melt. They will combine with the butter mixture as you spread them around. Make sure to cover all of the crackers. Then sprinkle with the topping of your choice (I like Heath bar:)...or leave them plain~your choice! Pop the pan in the fridge or freezer to cool, then break them into pieces and ENJOY!!

Warning: These things are highly addictive!!
