Chocolate Praline Toffee Crisps
Part cookie and part candy, these are a quick treat to make for the holidays.
12 honey graham crackers
1 cup unsalted butter (do not substitute)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange crackers side by side in a single layer in an 11 x 15 baking sheet.
Combine brown sugar, butter and vanilla in a 3 qt. saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Boil sugar mixture 4 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in pecans. Immediately pour sugar mixture over crackers and spread evenly. Bake 10-14 minutes or until sugar mixture is bubbly and pecans are lightly toasted.
Microwave chocolate morsels on HIGH 30-60 seconds or until smooth. Place a resealable plastic bag into a measuring cup and fold edges over. Pour chocolate into bag. Twist top of bag and trim corner to allow chocolate to flow through; drizzle over crisps.
Cut into 24 squares; cut squares diagonally in half to form triangles.
Store in a tightly covered container.
