Praline Bars

So as I mentioned earlier, a lot of baking goes on in my house during the holidays. This recipe is a staple and I can take ZERO credit for it – my mom gave me this recipe. As a disclaimer, when my mother makes these they look MUCH prettier – she delicately drizzles semisweet chocolate and white chocolate to make a beautiful presentation. Mine look a little sad compared to hers, but boy do they taste amazing.

Many of my friends wanted this recipe, so here it is. No, there are no misprints below, it truly is this easy and there really is that much butter and sugar in it!

Makes 60

15 graham cracker sheets
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 3/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I usually omit, but it sure is prettier if you take the time to include it!)

Preheat oven to 350 degree.

Separate each graham cracker sheet into 4 crackers; place in a lightly greased 15 x 10 jelly roll pan. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the graham crackers.

Bring brown sugar and margarine to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Boil 2 minutes. Pour brown sugar mixture evenly over graham crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove graham crackers to wax paper using a spatula and let cool.

Microwave (or use double boiler) semisweet chocolate chips, stir until smooth. Drizzle chocolate evenly over cooled bars. Repeat procedure with white chocolate chips.
