Hey guys! Christmas is less than a week away which means you're probably busy shopping, wrapping, traveling, cooking, and spending so much time with family and friends. Whatever you're doing, wherever you're going and whoever you're with, trust me, it's worth it to find time to make this super simple dessert. It's perfect for every occasion and even the pickiest of dessert eaters love it, plus it's a fun twist on a classic post-dinner indulgence that includes chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker crust.
Drew's mom made this for us when his parent's came to Boston and I ate almost an entire pan by myself--it's that good! I also made this recipe for the Red Sox wives and their kids and trust me they thought it was just as delicious as I did.
Enjoy! And don't forget to tag me on Instagram if/when you try them for yourselves!
What you'll need:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/3 cups all-purpose flour (you can use the gluten-free all-purpose flour - I use regular)
***1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum ONLY IF you're use the gluten-free all-purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (you can use the gluten-free kind)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
5 (about) 1.55oz Hershey's milk chocolate bars
1 and 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff
What you'll do:
1. Pre-heat the over to 350 degrees.
2. Line a 9x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper (cut to fit) or a non-stick spray
3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, then beat in the egg and vanilla
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan gum (if you're using it), graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and sea salt.
5. Add the ingredients from step 4 to the ingredients from step 3 and mix until combined to make a dough.
6. Transfer half of the dough to the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly over the bottom (Pro-tip A: use your fingers to spread it).
7. Layer the Hershey's chocolate bars over the batter, then spread the marshmallow fluff evenly over the chocolate (Pro-tip B: plop it with a spoon, then spread it with the back of the same spoon), then layer the remaining dough over the marshmallow fluff (Pro-tip C: break the dough into smaller portions and place them evenly over the fluff, then use your fingers to spread the dough).
8. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, let cool, then cut and serve...
Just kidding, cut it up immediately and eat it all gooey and warm. If you have leftovers, pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to recreate the warm, gooey magic.
Let me know how much you loooove them, and Happy Holidays!
