This Chocolate Bark recipe is a decadent treat that's easy to make and great for giving as a gift. Graham crackers covered with rich caramel and dark chocolate create a bark that's hard to pass up. Top it off with flaky salt and pecans for an incredible treat.

Barbara's Notes + Tips
Make sure there is no moisture in the saucepan
Use a candy thermometer and remove when it reaches 300º
If no candy thermometer, look for a deep golden color
You don't need to stir it, but if you just have to stir, it won't ruin it
Pour this over the graham crackers immediately, if it separates, don't worry, it will still taste awesome
Try adding toasted coconut to the top with the pecans. Alternative toppings could be colorful sprinkles or pepita seeds.
