Ingredients

12
graham crackers (broken into 24 squares )
1/2 pound
butter
1 cup
sugar, brown
3/4 cup
pecans (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon
salt, coarse
3/4 cup
chocolate chips, bittersweet

Instructions

Heat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the crackers on the foil-lined sheet, with their edges touching. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat, then stir in the brown sugar. Turn the heat to medium high, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook for 10 minutes until the sugar has melted. Pour the sugar mixture over the graham crackers, and spread with a spatula to cover evenly.
Sprinkle with pecans and bake for 10 minutes, until bubbly. Place pan on a cooling rack and use the tip of a spatula to nudge the crackers apart. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Once the crackers are cool, melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the crackers. Let cool until chocolate is firm; remove from the pan, and break into pieces. Store, tightly covered, at room temperature for up to a week.
