Submitted by Terry J. Wallace, a Southeast Colorado Power Association member

24 graham crackers
1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Lay graham crackers, covering the bottom of pan. In a saucepan, boil butter and brown sugar for 2 minutes, or until blended. Add vanilla and blend. Pour butter mixture over crackers, then sprinkle with nuts. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn off oven. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips or chocolate wafers. Return to oven (which is off) until the chocolate melts. Spread the top with a rubber spatula and then chill in the refrigerator. Once fully chilled, break into pieces.
