I am so sorry that I am posting this. Seriously. You will HATE me after you try your first bite. You will want to keep eating it and eating it. So here is what you do...make it, eat half of it and then send the rest to your work or hubby's work. There...problem solved and your welcome! There....don't say I didn't WARN you!
I got this candy/bar cookie from my friend Lindsay...I called her after my first bite and demanded the recipe. So I guess you need to blame her...or Food Network for posting the recipe. Ok...on to the deliciousness...
Turtle Graham Bars
Source: Food Network
14-15 Graham Crackers
1 c. unsalted butter
1 c. packed dark brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
salt, to taste
12 oz. dark chocolate, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil (maybe spray with Pam...I didn't...and was ok though, you choose) or a silicone mat.
Put the butter, brown sugar, pecans, and a pinch of salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour the butter mixture evenly over the graham crackers and bake for 11-15 minutes (I did it for 11 minutes). Remove and set aside.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl placed over simmering water (I put mine in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time). Pour the chocolate over the toffee-covered graham crackers and spread evenly. Let set up a bit and sprinkle salt on top. (If you do it too soon you won't see the salt, but if you wait too long the salt won't stick.) Chill completely in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Cut into bars with a serrated knife.
