Southern Praline Bars

· 18-20 whole graham crackers, about 2 sleeves
· 1 ½ cups butter
· 1 ½ cups dark brown sugar
· 1 teaspoon vanilla
· 2 cups roughly chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large sheet pan (13x18-inch) with foil allowing the sides to overhang pan by a few inches on the long sides.
2. Place graham crackers in a single layer on the pan making sure to cover the entire pan. Some crackers may have to be broken to fit.
3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add brown sugar and whisk together over medium heat. Stir continuously until sugar is fully incorporated and smooth. Bring mixture to a rolling boil, add pecans and continue cooking, stirring frequently for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Be careful when adding the vanilla as mixture will bubble up. Pour mixture over graham crackers and spread to cover with a knife.
4. Bake for 12 minutes. Entire surface should be bubbly. If not, bake a little longer. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
5. Using the foil sides, transfer bars to cutting board and cut into squares. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
