S'mores Toffee Bark


How many different spins on s'mores have we seen?
I sure have seen a lot.
I really wanted to try for something different.
I'm pretty sure this is it.
These would be great for dessert on Fathers Day!


Gram crackers covered in crunchy buttery toffee highly additive.

Then you throw in some chocolate and top with marshmallows,
whoa nelly!

After it's all baked to perfection cool it off and break it up.
I promise they're wont be any leftovers. 
You will have quite a bit so I recommend making them for a crowd.


Ingredients

About 16 Graham Cracker Squares 
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups mini marshmallows

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay out graham crackers into a tight grid, gently touching each other to fill the entire pan.

In a saucepan, melt together the butter and brown sugar over low heat. Whisk regularly until completely melted and combined. Allow the mixture to bubble (raising the temperature if necessary), then boil for 3-5 minutes until thickened. Watch it you do not want burn the mixture.

Pour the melted sugar mixture evenly over the graham crackers. Spread with a spatula or the back of a large spoon to cover all the crackers as evenly as possible.

Place the pan into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. The toffee will bubble as it bakes, but watch it to make sure it does not burn. 

Remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the surface of the toffee. Let the chips sit for 1-2 minutes to get soft and melty before using a spatula or back of a spoon to spread the melted chocolate evenly over the toffee and all the way to the edges of the pan. It's ok if it's not perfect. 

Sprinkle the marshmallows over the melted chocolate, leave a little bit of melting room in between each one.

Turn on the oven’s broiler setting and move one oven rack close to the top of the oven. Place the pan with marshmallows back into the oven under the broiler for 1-3 minutes, until the marshmallows toast up and brown to our taste, watch carefully not to burn them. You just want them nice and toasty brown.

Once toasted to perfection, allow the bark to cool, then place in the fridge to set for at least one hour. Once it’s set, snap it into pieces using a strong knife, or break it carefully over the edge of the kitchen counter. Following the natural break of the graham cracker squares leads to more regularly-shaped toffee, but broken shards work well too.

Store squares in the fridge, separated by parchment. Chances are you wont need to store them! They will quickly disappear!
