Golden Graham Treats

7 Dec

Alice and I would make these in college– most memorably, for a munchies party. That’s right, welcome to sophomore year of college. Complete with tapestry- that I legit thought was cool.  Anyway, they taste like s’mores and take about 10 minutes to make. I really don’t know why these never quite got the home-baker acclaim that rice krispy treats did. They used to print this recipe on the box- but no longer. When I tried to find it on the internet, all the recipes were not as I remembered and had corn syrup in them- gross. So I decided I would instead use the proportions in rice krispy treats- and just do as close to I remembered.

12oz box golden grahams
1 bag mini marshmallows (most of bag- save a handful for topping)
1 bag ghiradelli milk chocolate chips (most of bag- save a handful for topping)- Freeze ahead of time!!
3 tablespoons butter

Grease pan w. butter– I used a 11 x 7 pyrex.  Melt butter in big pot. Add almost all bag of marshmallows.  Stir. Cook until melted. Take off heat. Add whole box of golden grahams. Stir to coat. Wait a second so a little cool.  Stir in most of bag of chocolate. Transfer to pan.  Take a piece of wax paper- maybe best to butter it- put it on top of golden grahams and pat down to flatten- or can use damp hands. Peel off. Sprinkle on topping- handful of marshmallows and choc chips- lightly press down. Wait a bit while they cool. Cut into squares.
