Chocolate Graham Crackers

I originally made this recipe years and years ago. My little guy was going through a serious love of graham crackers and I wanted to surprise him with a special snack. 

Truth? I had never made graham crackers and was a little nervous. After reading the instructions of the recipe I wasn’t super sure I made the right choice. Good news is I rolled up my sleeves and got to work anyway. 

Boy, oh boy, am I glad I did. This is a simple recipe for graham cookies that is fun to customize! Play around with the shapes and designs for the perfect treat to share!

How to make the Best Chocolate Graham Crackers:

  1. reheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, cocoa, powdered sugar, and baking powder in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Give it a slow mix.
  3. Add the butter and stir until pea sized clumps are formed in the dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl mix the honey and milk until the honey dissolves. Stir into your dry ingredients until a dough forms. Split dough into two.
  5. On parchment cut to the size of a cookie sheet (or a silicone mat) roll the dough into a large rectangle. Prick with a fork to prevent bubbling. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until you start to smell chocolate.
  6. Immediately cut into squares or desired shape. Make sure you do this while they are warm as they will crisp up fairly quickly as they cool.

Saying something is a graham cracker without graham flour is like saying a cake without chocolate is a chocolate cake.

Just curious but what would happen if you cut out the shapes before you bake?

You can try it either way. The dough is a little sticky so you might have a hard time transferring them to the baking sheet and them keeping their shape. Let me know how it works out!

love chocolate graham crackers! I've always been afraid to make graham crackers because I thought they used some weird flour or something, they look great!

You're right, they should have a different type of flour to be considered a true graham cracker. I guess I should have called them chocolate crisps :0)

Oh my goodness, these are adorable and look so delicious! I just noticed you have a recipe for regular homemade grahams too, so you can bet both of these are going on my "must make" list. MMM!
