These fabulous bars are more than just a stand-in for the original (minus the marshmallow en flambe and chasing your sibling with a gooey marshmallow stick.)  The graham cookie crust on these are a force of their own sandwiching the ever favorite chocolate and marshmallow melted perfection.



1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup butter room temp

1 Large egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/3 cup of all purpose flour

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 king size milk chocolate bars ( I use hersheys)

1 1/2 cup marshmallow creme ( regular marshmallows won’t work as well)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease an 8″ square baking pan and set aside

In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until fluffy.  

Mix in egg and vanilla

In a small bowl whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.

Add dry mixture to butter mixture and either  hand mix or mix at low speed in a mixer until combined

Divide dough in half and take one half of the dough and press it evenly into the bottom of the greased pan.

Place the King-sized chocolate bars over the dough.  They should fit perfectly. Break to fit if using smaller bars.

Spread marshmallow crème over chocolate.

Take remaining dough and make another single layer on top of the marshmallow.

** Tip make the top layer about ½ inch wide by flattening it then place it over marshmallow crème gently.  Then push into corners of the pan. 

Bake for 30-35 mins.

**Let cool before cutting.  Enjoy!
