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…

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.

  1. My mother used to make these and now I make them. We call them Gorham Cracker cookies. I break the graham crackers apart so each one is a cookie. These are really delish!

  2. I’ve always loved this but had lost my recipe. We always let them cool on opened up brown paper bags to get rid of excess butter. And used American butter not European which has higher fat. We’ll call it Praline Craic (Irish word for good rollicking time, usually music involved). Grandkids favorite treat.

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe, it is delish. When I made it, it was quite oily due to the amount of butter. Do you think I can use less? Would it ruin this wonderful recipe? What do you think would be the lowest amount of butter that I can use without ruining the recipe.

  4. Hi, I didn’t have any nuts on hand, but my sweet tooth got the better of me. I sprinkled Rice Krispies on top for the crunch. Sooo good!

  5. I want to make this but usually have a soft mess. When do you start timing the 2 minute boil ? After it comes to a rolling boil or after it just begins to have a soft boil ?
