Pecan Pie Bark

If you're craving the taste of pecan pie or need a sweet treat ~ this will do the trick, but so much easier and probably a lot less calories.  So sweet, so easy and so good!


Approximately 12-14 cinnamon graham crackers
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp pure maple syrup (optional but so good with it)
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans


Prepare an 11.5" x 17" or larger sheet pan by covering in aluminum foil and spraying lightly with baking spray.  Place the graham cracker in 2 rows of 6 or if a larger pan 2 rows of 7.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium saucepan add the butter and brown sugar and set to low-med heat.  Mix and bring to a boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Stir in the vanilla, maple syrup and pecans and evenly pour the hot mixture over the graham crackers.  Using an offset spatula, spread the mixture around to get all that goodness evenly over the graham crackers.  Bake for approximately 9 minutes, turning the pan once halfway through the cooking time, until bubbly all over. Remove from oven and let sit until completely cool, then break up the pieces.  To speed up the cooling time put the whole tray in the freezer for a little bit.  Break up and enjoy the sweet goodness!!
