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!
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.
