Serves: 24 bars
 
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2⅓ cups graham crumbs
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1½ tbsp butter
  • 3 regular sized Mars Bars chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1½ cups mini marshmallows
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mix together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy
  3. Add vanilla and egg and combine well
  4. In a separate bowl, combine graham crumbs, flour and salt and then add to the butter mixture
  5. Put aside 1½ cups of the crumb mixture and spread the remaining mixture in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Press this into the pan to create a solid base.
  6. In a small saucepan melt the 3 cups of marshmallows and butter
  7. Spread the marshmallow mixture evenly over the base (this will be tricky - it's very gooey and will try to pull up the base as you spread)
  8. Combine Mars pieces, remaining marshmallows and cookie crumb mixture in a bowl and then sprinkle evenly over the marshmallow cookie base.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes or until marshmallows puff up and start to turn a golden brown.
  10. Cool thoroughly before slicing
Notes
Next time, I would consider increasing the quantities for the melted marshmallow mixture - it was very thin and hard to spread. This is also a very very sweet dessert - it's well suited to small bars and a tart drink, like lemonade.
