Recipe type: Cookies & Bars, Snacks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24
  • 2 sleeves of graham crackers, pulsed into crumbs with a food processor
  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3½ cups mini-marshmallows
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray the bottom of a 13" x 9" baking dish with cooking spray. Line the baking dish with aluminum foil, leaving enough to over hang on the sides. (You'll use the extra foil as handles to lift the finished bars out of the pan.)
  3. Spray the inside of the foil and the sides of the baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  4. Break apart the graham crackers, and put in the bowl of a food processor. At first, pulse the crackers, then turn the processor on until the crackers turn into crumbs. (You may have a stubborn few crackers in chunky pieces - just pulse until they're all crumbs.)
  5. Add the sugar to the crumbs in the food processor - pulse a few times to combine.
  6. Add the melted butter. Whir the food processor until the crumbs look like wet sand.
  7. Pour the crumbs into the prepared baking dish. Evenly distribute the crumb mixture and pat the crust into place. Bake until the crust begins to brown - 12-15 minutes. Remove the crust, and allow to cool while melting the chocolate.
  8. Put 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave-proof measuring cup. Cook on high power for 2 minutes. Remove and stir until all the chips are completely melted.
  9. Pour the melted chocolate over the crust.
  10. Sprinkle ½ mini-marshmallows over the chocolate. Pat down until they're halfway submerged. Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows. Place under a broiler for 2 minutes, until the marshmallows are golden brown and begin to slightly melt.
  11. Cool the bars and refrigerate for an hour or so, until the bars are set. Lift the whole pan of bars out of the baking dish. Put on a flat surface or cutting board, and cut into bars.
If the bars aren't completely gone, put them in the refrigerator. The chocolate hardens - in my mind, they're even better.

Don't be afraid to flavor the chocolate with coffee, orange, or vanilla extracts. Or use milk chocolate chips in place of semi-sweet.

These would be great as a special treat in a kid's lunchbox!
