I make a similar recipe called Pecan Bark. The recipe I use calls for 2 sticks of butter, which you can use in this recipe as well, just be sure to omit the one stick of margarine.
Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Break graham crackers into sections and line as close together as possible. It will take approximately 1 1/2 packages, which is about 24 grahams. There are three (3) packages to a box.
Boil butter, margarine and brown sugar for three (3) minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and mix well. *I use 2 sticks of butter rather than one stick each of butter and margarine. You can also use two sticks of margarine and omit the butter if you prefer. It's your call.
Pour evenly over crackers and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake ten (10) minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool and peel off foil. Store in airtight container to keep them crisp.
Billy Dewar submitted his mother's recipe for Praline Grahams for his church youth group's 'Recipe Revelations'. A junior at Dreker High School, Billy hopes to attend USC in Columbia followed by a career in the Navy. He says he really likes these cookies but leaves the baking to his mother.
