Homemade Chocolate Graham Cracker Recipe
Ingredients for Graham Crackers –
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 tablespoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
Directions to Make Graham Crackers –
- In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, honey, molasses, and vanilla. Add the flour, cocoa powder, whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix to form a thick dough.
- Press the dough into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap, then chill one hour (or twenty minutes in the freezer).
- Preheat the oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats. Roll out the chilled dough very thin between two sheets of parchment.
- Cut the dough into desired shapes, then transfer to the prepared baking sheets using a spatula or bench scraper. Poke each cracker with a fork a couple of times and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until puffed up slightly and darkened on the edges.
