Pecan pie bark

Pecan pie bark is a delicious twist on traditional pecan pie, featuring all the flavors of pecan pie in a convenient bark form. Here’s a simple recipe to make it:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 sleeve (about 14-16 crackers) graham crackers
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and arrange the graham crackers in a single layer on the baking sheet, breaking them if necessary to fit.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Carefully pour the butter and sugar mixture over the graham crackers, using a spatula to spread it evenly to cover all the crackers.
  4. Sprinkle the chopped pecans evenly over the butter and sugar mixture.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbling and the pecans are toasted.
  6. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let it cool completely. As it cools, the mixture will harden into a bark-like consistency.
  7. Once cooled and hardened, break the pecan pie bark into pieces of your desired size.
  8. Serve and enjoy! Pecan pie bark makes a delicious treat on its own, or you can serve it alongside ice cream or whipped cream for an extra indulgent dessert.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

This pecan pie bark is sure to be a hit with anyone who loves the rich flavors of pecan pie!
