Preheat your oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13 baking pan or place parchment paper in pan for easy cleanup and easy serving.
GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST
Take the sleeves of graham crackers and place them in a zip top bag and crush them until they are fine crumbs (almost like a fine sand). A food processor works great too.
In a medium bowl, add the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter and mix well. Press into greased pan or pan lined with parchment paper (see notes).
Bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
While your graham cracker crust is cooking, in a large bowl, add your softened butter, brown and white sugar and mix well.
Add your eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda. Mix well.
Add your flour, and mix until well combined. Then add your chocolate chips and marshmallows (as much or as little as you like).
Gently press cookie dough on graham cracker crust and spread evenly.
Place back in the oven and bake for 18 minutes. Remove from oven.
Spread marshmallows and broken Hershey Bars on top of warm cookie dough. Place back in the oven and bake an additional 9-10 minutes. I like mine a bit underdone so it is gooey. Don't overbake or it won't be nearly as good! Let it cool before serving (or eat it right away and it will be super gooey and melty but still super delicious). If you used parchment paper to line your baking dish, after they have cooked you can lift the bars out right on the parchment paper and cut them into pieces.
After baking, I like to add a handful of chocolate chips, broken up Hershey's bars and marshmallows. This is totally optional but I always like to add a bit more where it looks like it could use a bit more sweetness!
I line my baking pan with parchment paper for easy cleanup and so it is easy to lift the cookie bars out of the pan to cut and serve. This is optional and you can just grease your pan.The graham crackers I use have 8 crackers per sleeve and I use 2 sleeves for a total of 16 crackers. I use a zip top bag and put the crackers in it and my meat mallet or rolling pin to crush them up. They should be crushed fine -almost like a fine sand.You can add as many chocolate chips or marshmallows to the cookie dough. I think 1 1/2 cups is perfect but if it seems to much, you can add less (or more)!The chocolate chips, broken Hershey Bars and extra marshmallows I add at the very end are optional and totally up to you!
