I happened along this little dandy in a murder mystery I was reading, Carrot Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke. They sounded sounded so good I had to try them out.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Yields 2.5 to 3 dozen bars
You will need:
- 24 graham crackers (12 double ones)
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (I used mini chips)
- 1 cup lightly salted cashews
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar (packed firmly)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the butter and the brown sugar. Stir constantly until the butter is all melted and the brown sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla.
Drizzle the contents of the saucepan evenly over the contents of the cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Cool the baking pan on a wire rack.
When the bars are cool, cut them and serve.
If there are leftovers, cover and refrigerate.
