Graham Break-Aways

Wow! It's been a long time since I last posted. I'm such a slacker! Sorry about that.

Anyway, here's a yummy recipe to satisfy any chocolate craving you may have. The original recipe comes from Kraft Foods.

I made this using Fleischmann's Unsalted with good results. I don't know how well a "light" margarine would work. If that's all you can find where you live, give it a shot. It'll still taste good, but the texture may be a little off.

You can also make this using saltine crackers.

Graham Break-Aways

12 MSPI-friendly graham crackers, broken in half (24 squares)
1/2 cup (1 stick) MSPI-friendly margarine
1/4-1/2 tsp. salt, optional -- only add this if you're using unsalted margarine
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup MSPI-friendly chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, optional

Heat oven to 350°F. Arrange graham crackers in a single layer in a 15x10x1-inch pan.

Bring margarine, sugar and salt to a boil in medium saucepan on medium heat; cook two minutes or until margarine is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Pour over grahams; immediately spread to completely cover all grahams.

Bake six to eight minutes or until sugar mixture is lightly browned and bubbly; top with chocolate chips. Bake one to two minutes or until chocolate is softened. Remove pan from oven; immediately spread chocolate over grahams. Sprinkle with nuts; press lightly into chocolate with back of spoon. Cool completely before breaking into squares.
