Ingredients

  • 4 oz. unsalted butter
  • 7.5 oz. graham crackers, finely crushed (approximately 1 ½ cups)
  • 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips (approximately 1 cup)
  • 2 oz. pecans, chopped (approximately ½ cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the graham cracker crumbs and spread in an even layer.
  5. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top, followed by the pecans and then the marshmallows.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until slightly browned and bubbling.
  7. If a more toasted marshmallow top is desired, move the pan to the top rack of the oven and broil for 1 min.
  8. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Cut and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

This is an easy alternative for summertime parties’ sans campfire.  Or a fun all day activity if you decide to make the entire thing from scratch – bet you were wondering what all my latest posts were leading up to 😉

The ingredients include:  marshmallows, chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter, graham crackers (crushed), and pecans.

Add the graham crackers to a large plastic bag; remove all the air and seal tightly.  Using a rolling pin, crush the crackers until they have turned into fine crumbs.

Bake this for 20 minutes or until browned and bubbling along the edges.  To further toast the marshmallows, move the pan to the top rack of the oven and broil for 1 minute.  Keep a sharp eye, as they can burn very quickly!

Place on a wire rack to cool completely.  Look at all this ooey, gooey goodness!

Once cool, lift up the parchment paper and remove from the pan.  Using a sharp knife, cut into squares.
