  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a small baking pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 wit...

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 minut...

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

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

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 r...

It didn't wow me so I don't think I will make it again unless I need a bunch of toppings if having people for ice cream. It was ok & I liked the crunch with the ice cream & that was about it. Se...
