Bourbon Graham Cracker Candy is so buttery and crunchy with just the right amount of bourbon flavor. It’s easy to make and keeps well in a ziptop bag. This southern treat is perfect for a Kentucky Derby Party.
Just a few basic ingredients and 10 minutes of bake time are needed for this addictingly sweet candy.
It’s so crunchy and sweet it’s difficult to stop eating.
You’ll need a large baking sheet and you’ll want to line it with parchment paper. This stuff is sticky!
Break 14 graham crackers into 4 rectangles each and lay them side by side on the parchment paper. Place a whole pecan in the center of each graham cracker piece. You can skip the pecans if you don’t like them, but bourbon and pecans are such a great combination.
In a saucepan bring some butter, brown sugar, and a little salt to a boil. Stir in the bourbon and then pour the mixture evenly over the graham crackers. Careful not to dislodge the pecans. Bake for 10 minutes and then let cool before breaking into pieces.
This candy is like sugary crack! You won’t be able to stop eating it.
