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!

How to Make Bourbon Graham Cracker Candy

 

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.

  1. Made this and pecan half fell off all crackers. Also the sugar on edges burned even though I only baked for 10 minutes.

  2. Yum! A couple of options, although it’s perfect as is: 1. You can use chopped pecans and sprinkle them over the crackers instead of placing a single pecan on each cracker. 2. You can use saltine crackers instead of graham for a little salty/sweet combo. I also like someone else’s suggestion for adding chocolate, but this is one lily of a recipe that needs no gilding!
