Easy to make and even easier to love, let’s embark on a culinary journey to create these sweet delights.

Ingredients:

  • Graham Crackers: 7-8 full rectangles
  • Unsalted Butter: 1 cup (2 sticks), room temperature
  • Granulated Sugar: 3/4 cup
  • Light Brown Sugar: 3/4 cup, packed
  • Eggs: 2 large
  • Vanilla Extract: 2 tsp
  • All-Purpose Flour: 3 cups
  • Salt: 3/4 tsp
  • Baking Soda: 3/4 tsp
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: 1/2 cup
  • Mini Marshmallows: 1 cup
  • Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars: 2 regular-sized (1.55oz), broken into squares

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prep: Fire up your oven to 375°F. Line a 13×9-inch baking pan with parchment, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
  2. Lay the Base: Arrange graham crackers in a snug layer at the bottom of the pan. Break them to fit, ensuring full coverage.
  3. Cream the Dream: In your mixer, whip the butter and both sugars until creamy. Blend in eggs and vanilla for that sweet aroma.
  4. Whisk the Dry: In a separate bowl, whisk flour, salt, and baking soda. Gradually mix this into the butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows, but keep it gentle.
  5. Layer and Press: Spread the dough over the graham crackers. Press evenly, dreaming of the golden bars to come.
  6. Bake to Perfection: Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden. If the top browns too fast, shield with foil.
  7. Top it Off: Fresh out the oven, sprinkle chocolate bar pieces on top. Let the warmth gently melt them.
  8. Cool, Cut, and Cherish: Wait 20-30 minutes (if you can!), then lift out, cut, and serve. Watch as the chocolate and marshmallows create a gooey masterpiece.

Note: The chocolate may stay soft at room temperature, adding to the gooey goodness!
