Salted Chocolate-Covered Graham Crackers

Salted Chocolate-Covered Graham Crackers

Yep. Salted Chocolate-Covered Graham Crackers. What else is there to say? These are amazing. I mean they’re graham crackers, epidemic covered in dark chocolate and sprinkled with flaky sea salt. The grahams are nice and crunchy. The chocolate is luscious and well, pharm chocolatey. And the salt? It balances the chocolate perfectly, information pills giving it a deeper taste, and the grahams a sweeter crunch.

These are quite possibly the greatest snack on earth. I suggest you go buy a box of graham crackers, some dark chocolate and the flakiest salt you can find. Whip these up, then sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy.

Salted Chocolate-Covered Graham Crackers

8 oz. honey graham crackers (I love these graham sticks!)
8 oz. dark chocolate chips
1 – 2 tbsp. flaky sea salt

Set up a double boiler by filling a medium saucepan halfway with water. Bring to a simmering boil at medium-high heat and place a metal bowl over the rim of the sauce pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add your chocolate chips to the bowl and watch them melt.

While the chocolate melts, place a large sheet of parchment or plastic wrap as close to the saucepan as you can. Once your chocolate is fully melted, it’s time to dip your graham crackers.

One by one, drop the graham crackers into the melted chocolate. If you’re using large crackers, make sure to break them into manageable pieces first. Use a couple of forks to flip the cracker in the chocolate until it’s completely coated. Transfer to the prepared parchment.

As you place each graham on the parchment, sprinkle with a tiny pinch of flaky sea salt. Make sure to place each graham far enough away from it’s neighbor so that they won’t be attached when the chocolate cools. Keep going until you’ve covered all your grahams. Let the crackers set completely in a cool, undisturbed environment. This usually takes 2 – 3 hours.

If you’ve got leftover melted chocolate, pour it over ice cream immediately and enjoy. Or let it cool a bit and let your kids (or husband) lick it out of the bowl.

  12. GENIUS! My boyfriend is a self proclaimed “picky eater” who is rare with compliments on food- i made this (with semi-sweet chocolate spread on the tops of the crackers instead of dipped, with the sea salt on top) and I got a “This is DELICIOUS”! Thanks, can’t wait to try more of your recipes

  15. Thank you for this recipe! I was out with my elderly aunt and we were reminiscing about chocolate covered graham crackers. I looked for some in a local candy shop and yikes, they were so expensive! I knew I could make a whole bunch for her if I found the right recipe, and yours fits the bill! I do love the Back to Nature graham crackers, and am wondering which brand of chocolate chips you prefer. Thanks!

  16. Hi Laura – Thanks for the comment! I love the Whole Foods brand dark chocolate chips (or chunks) and also the Ghiradelli chips. Both are good quality and work well with the graham crackers :)
