S’more Magic Cookie Bars

Over the holiday season I made the Magic Cookie Bar recipe made famous by a condensed milk company and they were delicious (and I was surprised how quick they were to make)!  As soon as I made them the wheels started spinning with how I could alter the recipe and get some marshmallows into them.  Because marshmallows.  Then my mind wandered over to golden grahams cereal.  So I went for it and played with the recipe and came up with these S’more Magic Cookie Bars.

I initially just wanted the marshmallows lightly toasted and the baking time didn’t quite get them the level of toastedness that I wanted so I decided to put the pan under broil for a bit.  I watched them toast, then turned my back to check FB or something, then all of a sudden the marshmallows were on the fast track to burnt-dom.  Ack!  I pulled them out of the oven just in the nick of time, but they were still a little more toasted than I had hoped.  BUT it turns out, this extra toastiness was my favourite part of the bar.  Delish.

There’s this creamy, sweet layer of deliciousness, then you get a bite full of buttery graham cracker flavour and chunky chocolate and toasted marshmallows.  It’s dessert heaven.  So you should try these.  They’re the best.  And this recipe makes A LOT, which makes it perfect for feeding a crowd.
