Graham Cracker Bark

If it's Christmas, I must be making my most requested Graham Wafer Christmas Bark. ( It is second only to my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies  - click here for the recipe). I just made a batch for a cookie exchange and I think the only reason I was invited was for my bark.

So here is the recipe - simple, quick and delish!

Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and cover with Graham Cracker wafers. 
In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar. Bring to a boil and stir for 3 minutes. ( I set a timer as soon as it starts to boil as this is a critical step to success). 
Pour over the crackers and spread evenly with a spatula. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes until the entire pan is bubbling. Watch closely as it can easily burn if left too long.
Remove and turn the oven off. Sprinkle 1 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips on top and return to the oven for 30 seconds. Remove and smooth the chocolate. Top with ground pecans and place in the freezer. When hard, peel off the tin foil and break into pieces. For best results, store in the freezer and serve immediately.

For our cookie exchange, I packaged the bark in cone shaped cello bags and tied them with a pretty pink organza ribbon and added a sprig of cedar and a glass ornament.

I have made 4 batches so far and I have many more to go to keep all my friends and family happy.

I have been lucky enough to enjoy the famous Laurie Love's bark and it is the best bark by far I have ever tried! Great bark… but not as enjoyable as the visit with you Laurie at the cookie exchange. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
