Warm Toasted Marshmallow S'more Bars

I actually made these months ago, but with everything going on I totally forgot about posting the recipe. I came across this recipe while I was at work using StumbleUpon and I just had to email it to myself to try.


Ingredients:


1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 cups milk chocolate chips (18 oz)
4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows


Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix and crumbs. Stir in melted butter until soft dough forms. Press into ungreased 13x9-inch pan.


Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until set. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt. Spread chocolate evenly over crust.


Set oven control to broil. Sprinkle marshmallows over melted chocolate. Broil with top 4 to 5 inches from heat 20 to 30 seconds or until marshmallows are toasted. (Watch closely; marshmallows will brown quickly.) Cool 10 minutes. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Serve warm. Store any remaining bars tightly covered.


The feedback I got from this recipe was pretty much a mixed bag. Some people thought it was too crumby, whereas some thought there were just enough crumbs. Some people thought there wasn't enough chocolate, whereas some thought there was too much chocolate. My opinion? For me, it was too crumby. If you're going to keep the amount of sugar cookie mix and graham cracker crumb, you have to add more chocolate. Or...you can just cut down on the amount of mix and/or crumbs. My other issue with this dessert was that it was messy! Didn't matter if it was warm or cooled, it was a pain to serve. Granted it tasted good, but it was really hard to dish out. Also, if you have any left over, it gets super hard and sticky to eat later. I suggest making it for a big party so you know it will all disappear and try to find a happy medium between hot enough to be gooey, but cool enough to serve. Even though it was kind of a pain, it was still yummy and I still recommend it! Enjoy!
