Earlier this week, I shared the recipe for Peppermint Saltine Cracker Toffee ~ a Christmas-time version of classic cracker candy.  In that post, I talked about how I was first introduced to cracker candy by my sister-in-law ... with her favorite cracker candy recipe.  Well, guess what?

Today I'm sharing with you that recipe from my sister-in-law that started my love of cracker candy at first bite ... my sister-in-law's Graham Cracker Pralines {aka ~ Praline Cracker Candy}.

After trying that very first taste of cracker candy, I was hooked.  I've since come to know many different versions of the tasty stuff, loving each and every one of them.  But for me, none compare to that very first one I tasted.  I guess you could call Graham Cracker Pralines my first love of cracker candy.  And a very enduring love it's been, indeed.

Once these beauties are cooled, simply break them up into pieces for a totally delicious, totally addictive treat.  

The ease with which Graham Cracker Pralines come together make them a perfect simple little treat to whip up for the holidays ... for cookie trays, cookie exchanges, or especially if you're making treats in bulk to give as neighbor gifts, co-worker gifts, or to bring to parties as hostess gifts.  Place a few in a cellophane bag or clear plastic cup wrapped in clear wrap, tie with a ribbon , and voila! ... a quick-and-tasty little gift.

Now as for our house, we won't be giving any of these Graham Cracker Pralines away as little gifts.  Because it seems I'm not the only one who fell in love with them at first bite.  My husband fell in love, too ... which means this batch? ... Lasted all of about a half a day.
