So indulgent, rich and caramelly, no one would ever guess how easy they are to make! A drizzle of dark chocolate makes these the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.

Salted butter, brown sugar and toasted pecans marry to make a caramelly delicious treat! They’re also super easy to make and start with a layer of graham crackers.

Line a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with parchment paper. Arrange the graham crackers in a single layer in parchment-lined pan, so crackers completely cover the bottom of pan.

Combine the sugar, butter, and cream in a medium-size heavy saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, while stirring. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla and pecans. Pour the butter mixture over the crackers, spreading to coat.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to stand 10 minutes before lifting edges of parchment paper and removing from pan, transferring onto a wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Cut into serving pieces.

Optional chocolate drizzle:

Melt chocolate chips according to package directions. Transfer melted chocolate to plastic zip top bag, snip end of bag and drizzle melted chocolate over pieces. Allow chocolate to set. Store in airtight container until ready to serve.


Add to cellophane bags for a sweet treat for coworkers, teachers or friends for Valentine's Day.

    Looks really tempting! When do you score or cut it? Right out of oven? Before moving to wire rack? Can't wait to try!

  • Hi, Allow it to cool completely, about 30 minutes before cutting into serving pieces. Enjoy!
