You ready for a sugar shock?? Make these.
FYI: The sweeter bites are those that have fewer pieces of graham cracker. And the main reason these are so sweet in the first place is because I had the bright idea to replace half of the dark chocolate chips with milk chocolate chips. Seemed like a great idea at the time, since s'mores are typically made with milk chocolate, anyway (and the mister doesn't care for dark chocolate).
These are easy, and took me about 20 minutes to prepare. But, when you make these, follow the recipe, and definitely have a glass of milk or cup of black coffee at the ready.
½ cups Unsalted Butter, Softened
¾ cups Granulated Sugar
¾ cups Brown Sugar
2 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
½ teaspoons Salt
¼ cups Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
¼ cups Whole Milk
1 cup Crushed Graham Crackers, (not super fine; you want chunks)
2 cups Dark Chocolate Chunks
4-½ cups Mini Marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 baking dish and set it aside.
In a large bowl beat together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Set aside.
In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Slowly add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Beat in milk. Fold in graham crackers. Batter will be thick and sticky.
Press batter into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle dark chocolate chunks in a single layer over the top. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Top with marshmallows. Bake for an additional 5 minutes then turn on the broiler and broil for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until marshmallows brown slightly.
Remove pan from oven and set it on a rack. Allow bars to cool, slice and serve.
