Graham Cracker Brownies

grahamcrackerbrowniesMy mom always made a bunch of delicious Christmas cookies, but my favorite were graham cracker brownies. They’re so good! The recipe is really simple but it’s a good arm workout because of how thick and gooey the batter is. And the fun isn’t done after you pull them out of the oven. Getting them cut and removed from the pan is a workout too! But when you’re done… mmm…. a friend at our recent party said, “What is in these crack brownie things?!?!” Enjoy!


  • 4 cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs. (it is about 1 package of graham crackers from a box. Or you can buy already crushed graham crackers. You usually find them in the baking section by the graham cracker pie crusts.)
  • 1 package of chocolate chips
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) (found in the baking aisle.)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla



Mix all together. Bake in a 9×13 pan for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. It’s easier to remove the bars if you use a glass pan. You’ll want to let them cool a bit before removing them from the pan because they will probably be too gooey at first.

Other versions of this recipe have you had baking powder which would probably make it a little fluffier when it’s done, but I really like the dense result.
