    Be sure to turn the cinnamon side of the graham crackers facing up. Also, any crackers that are not covered in the butter mixture will burn. I bake these in a deeper dish (a cookie sheet with some depth) or a casserole dish, because some ingredients spill on the sides.  -  09 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a hit at the football party I took it to last Sunday! Several people asked for the recipe. It has a great buttery taste and is super-easy. The only slight complaint I had was that it does taste just a little bit burned. I think this happened when I was stirring the syrup, probably would have been easier on a gas stove. Still, a great recipe overall. I think I'll make it again at Christmas and give it away as gifts.  -  29 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    So good! Can't stop eating them. I think it helped that I lightly sprayed the cooking sheet before assembling. I followed others advice and baked at 375 for 9 minutes. After about 45 minutes I gently broke them apart and put in fridge to fully set up. Delicious recipe!  -  27 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
