  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 12 graham cracker rectangles 24 squares
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar 200 grams, I used light brown
  • 3/4 cup 6 ounces salted butter (softened)
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream 24 grams
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the pecans in a single layer for about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring halfway through, until fragrant. Note: The time will vary depending on the size and type of your pecan. Smaller pecans may be ready in 8 minutes, while larger ones take 10 to 12 minutes. Just keep an eye on them.
  • Line a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan with aluminum foil and grease the foil. Alternatively, you can just use nonstick foil. Arrange the graham crackers in a single layer in the prepared baking sheet, slightly overlapping the edges.
  • In a medium size heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, softened butter, and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla and pecans. Pour the butter mixture over the crackers, spreading to coat.
  • Bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until light and bubbly. Immediately sprinkle with salt, and slide the foil from the pan onto a wire rack.
  • Let the candy cool completely (at least 30 minutes). It will go from slightly chewy to crisp as it cools. Break into bite-sized pieces.
