Bull Dog Brittle

I had Bull Dog Brittle a few years ago when a sweet Georgia friend of mine brought it into work and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT! It is absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS and soooo EASY! I am making this today so I don't have a picture for you, but I will try and remember to take one. Today is a busy day here on the farm, so I am kind of scatter brained! lol (I know....what makes today any different!) :> )

As always my favorite recipe's are those that are delicious and easy. This is so good and so inexpensive to make that you will probably want to double the recipe. BTW....it makes an awesome gift too! :> )

For Bulldog Brittle you will need:

8 whole graham crackers
1 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup sugar

*Break crackers into fourths. Place on foiled lined cookie sheet pan, leaving space between crackers.

*Sprinkle chopped pecans over top of crackers.

*Melt margarine and butter in boiler. Add sugar, bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil exactly 2 minutes.

*Pour over pecans and crackers. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. DO NOT BROWN. Let cool and break into pieces.

My girl friend from South Carolina gave me this recipe a few years ago. Hers used saltines instead of graham crackers. It was oh, so delicious! And I couldn't get over how easy it was. I love graham crackers so I bet I would like that even better. I have all the ingredients in my pantry so I think I will give it a try today.

Thanks for the good idea!
