Praline Crack

This stuff is dangerously delicious. Praline Crack is what I call it because no other name is suitable. It’s a buttery, sugary, crunchy and chewy praline twist on cracker toffee! I had to expel it from my house immediately for fear I would eat the whole pan!

Praline Cracker Toffee Recipe

I’m sorry for the title of this recipe. I do understand crack isn’t a joke. I get it.

And honestly having never done crack, I can’t compare, certainly.

But I will say that if being crouched in the bathroom hiding from the world looking shifty and scared that someone will catch me is something someone on crack might do, then yes..this is crack-like.

Because that happened. With this stupid treat. Hence the name Praline Crack. AND I have the sweats and shakes right now because I don’t have a piece. So there’s that.

The recipe is basic, and a twist on that Christmas Crack or Cracker Toffee everyone loves. But better. Sorry, it is.

So anyway, let’s talk particulars. What you have here is buttery, brown sugary, chewy, crunchy, ridiculously addicting treat.

It’s everything you want it to be.. and more.

AND it’s easy. Basically fool-proof.

How Do You Make Praline Crack?

Just line your graham crackers on an ungreased jelly roll pan.

Then melt some butter and sugar together until it comes to a boil. Let it boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Also, have some chopped pecans on hand..

Then pour that delicious butterscotch sauce over top of the graham crackers.

Spread it evenly all over…

Then sprinkle your chopped pecans all up on there…

See?

And bake it. You need to let it go until it’s bubbly all over, it’ll take 12-ish minutes.

The longer it bakes, the crunchier the sauce will get. You’re essentially making candy here…but don’t let it go too long because it will most definitely burn!

Also, I prefer mine a little softer and less “brittle” than some. My husband prefers it crispier…to each their own.

Then let it cool.

And cut it into pieces. Large pieces, people.

Praline Crack..TOTALLY ADDICTIVE...a simple and buttery sweet snack that's both chewy and crunchy!

While it might not be the prettiest treat ever, it will absolutely be a favorite.

I have made this several times. Most recently I used rum extract instead of vanilla and sprinkled coconut on top with the nuts before baking. A different twist, and it was just as yummy!

My husband’s Mom made these every Christmas, so I thought I’d try them now that she’s passed….I was never a lover of the Saltines, so looked on Pinterest for Praline crack with graham crackers to see if that was a recipe – was going to try it anyway…but readying through these comments, I’ve seen people say they miss the saltiness of the Saltine….I’m going to sprinkle sea salt on top with the pecans….sounds yummy…Thanks

I just made this recipe and used half a baking sheet of graham crackers and half the baking sheet of saltin crackers. Bother turned out amazing. I like the thickness of the graham crackers better but the saltins add a bit of the salty which helps.

This was SO good! I could have eaten the whole pan myself, and it was SO easy! I will be making these over and over again!

I lined my pan with parchment paper. Used unsalted butter as you are adding salt to the mixture. Used pecan chips which got a little lost in the final result. I’d use bigger Pecan pieces next time. I cooked mine for 12 minutes but I think I’d like them a bit crunchier so will go with the 14 minute recommendation next time. Sweet, buttery and very easy to make!

Sweating it out!!! Eek!! I was distracted by A visitor at my door and realized too late after they were in the oven that I forgot to add the vanilla and salt!!! I’ve made these many times and they’re first to disappear of all my Christmas cookies. Idk if I’ve ever forgotten those ingredients though. I’ve also made these wonderful toffee bars using walnuts and they’re just as good. I’m using cinnamon Graham crackers today. Just out of oven now and NO difference!! Yay!!!
