  • In a small bowl, mix together crumbled graham crackers, brown sugar and cinnamon. Combine melted butter and vanilla, then stir in. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Sprinkle white sugar and salt over the top.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Note

If you want to put this on chocolate ice cream, try using orange or mint extract rather than vanilla - also, when using chocolate ice cream, it may be better to omit the cinnamon.

This is great! I read the recipe a little differently than the other reviewers because I didn't finely crush the graham crackers. I crumbled them into small to medium pieces and mixed them with the remaining ingredients. After baking, the graham cracker pieces were almost caramelized and delicious! I spread it out on a well greased cookie sheet and underbaked it a little. Next time I will definitely bake it for the full 15 minutes. I will also add a little more graham crackers because there is plenty of brown sugar mixture. The graham crackers are good enough just to snack on. I skimped a little on the salt but will use the full amount next time because the little bit of salt that you get every now and then is great with the sweetness of the brown sugar. This is a must try recipe! Read More

Good recipe but I like my instructions to be a little more specific so I minimize the chance of screwing things up. I finely crushed most of the crackers leaving a few bits bigger for contrast. I shouldn't have dashed it with salt - I used salted butter and it seemed a little salty - my mistake. Also I underbaked based on other reviews and the fact that I pre-made it for later in the day so I could reheat it before dessert. After initial prep and before baking it seemed a little sweet so I added one more graham cracker. Go ahead - it can take it. I also don't think you need to sprinkle with the white sugar but if that's your thing go for it. It tastes like a very sweet graham cracker crust (key lime cheesecake etc.). I think next time I'll cut the sugar topping out bake it lower and slower for more crunch and throw them in a homemade s'mores ice cream or cheesecake ice cream recipe. That would be tasty because most graham crackers dissolve when mixed into ice cream. Not bad! Read More

This was a great way to use up an almost empty box of graham cracker crumbs! I doubled the recipe and used 1 cup of the graham cracker crumbs that you buy in a box. This topping was great over out homemade vanilla ice cream but it didn't get too crunchy until after it had cooled completely. Still I think it tastes 100 times better warm. To heat up the topping simply heat it in your toaster oven in a small metal tray or on aluminum foil. This topping tasted a lot like the crumbly topping on many apple pies and also had a hint of a toffee flavor. Read More

Awesome! I will definitely make this again! I stirred this into icecream and milk and made a "milkshake". The only change/ suggestion i would make for this recipe is to only bake it for 10 minutes instead of 15. I baked it for the entire 15 and it tasted slightly burnt. Read More

Yummy--be sure to not overcook. Had trouble making the topping last until put on the ice cream--even good plain! Read More

A little too sweet but so different from the usual ice cream toppings. It adds variety to an ice cream sundae bar. Read More

Very nice. I've made it in the oven as well as in a skillet on the stove and it turned out well either way. I served it over "Five Ingredient Ice Cream" and it made a welcome change from our regular company desserts. Read More

This really is a great way to use those last graham crackers and crumbs that the children sometimes never eat--just open another box (grrrr). The flavors are just right. Read More
