My daughter desperately wanted to be a Girl Scout this year and I was happy to have her join a troop. To make a long story short...I ended up committing to be a troop leader. Help! I'm definitely not the sort of person that is comfortable in a leadership role. I'm doing it though, for the little girls, because I want THEM to be comfortable in leadership roles. The more I learn about Girl Scouts, the more I'm excited about being a part of it. It's all about empowering girls - teaching them responsibility, resourcefulness and self reliance. I love it!
So! I made these sweet candy treats to celebrate our first parent meeting yesterday.
Graham Cracker S'mores Candy!
I am usually able to just eat a (couple!) small bites of whatever I make and leave the rest alone...usually. That was not the case with these though! Oh my goodness! I literally made myself ill because I over-sampled. :) It was so worth it though. I think it's the caramel layer that sends these treats right over the top.
Graham Cracker S'mores Candy
by Brandy's Baking
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
- 12 sheets of graham crackers
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- 4 Hershey bars, broken into pieces
- 1 cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving a 1-inch overhang over the ends, and spray foil with cooking spray. Place graham crackers on the foil so that the sides are touching.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and mixture comes to a boil (about 4-6 minutes). Remove from heat and pour evenly over crackers. Bake 5 to 6 minutes, or until bubbly.
Remove pan from oven and immediately sprinkle mini marshmallows, chocolate bar pieces, and chocolate chips over the crackers.
Return pan to oven for another 2-3 minutes, or until marshmallows begin to soften and puff up.
Cool completely. (Refrigerate for a couple hours, if necessary, to help the chocolate and caramel firm up--it makes it much easier to cut.) Lift candy from pan using foil edges and cut into bars.
