Honey graham crackers are a time-honored classic, but Chocolate Grahams are a delightful treat that are often difficult to find at the local grocery store. Here is a simple homemade chocolate graham cracker recipe that are delicious on their own or in your favorite recipes calling for chocolate grahams.
Old-timey recipes often call for Graham flour, but these days you won’t see that on the shelves at your favorite grocery store. To be fair, Graham flour is nothing more than Whole Wheat flour, so if your recipe calls for graham flour, rest assured, all you need is regular whole wheat flour found in any decent grocery store.
½ cup all purpose flour
¾ cup Graham Flour (whole wheat flour)
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsweetened baking cocoa powder (We prefer dutch process for this recipe, but you can use whatever you have on hand)
1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons cold milk
Preheat the oven to 325°and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
In a large mixing bowl combine the flours, salt, cocoa, sugar, and baking powder. Using a pastry blender, your fingertips, or a couple of butter knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture resembles crumbs. In a small bowl combine the honey and milk, stirring until the honey dissolves, then add the liquid to the dry ingredients and toss lightly with a fork until the dough comes together.
Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface and fold it over gently until smooth.
Divide the dough in half, working quickly, roll out the chocolate graham dough.
Put your half of dough onto the parchment paper or Silpat, and roll it into a rectangle, until the dough is only about 1/16 of an inch thick.
Trim the edges with a pizza cutter, if you’re worried about having “pretty crackers” and prick the dough evenly with a fork. Repeat with the remaining half of dough on the other piece of parchment. Transfer the silpat or parchment paper onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until they begin to brown. Immediately cut them into rectangles with a pizza wheel or knife.
Transfer on a rack to cool. They will crisp as the cool.
