Caramel Graham Squares

When I first made these they reminded me of our Easy Layer Bars. They certainly look similar.
But, that being said, they are quite different in taste and texture.
If you are looking for something simple that will blow away your taste testers then this is the bar for you. It is soooo ooey gooey amazing!
Plus, it only takes about 5 minutes to put together.
The way I figure it....the only way to lose with this bar is if you DON'T make it.
I started with the recipe on the box of graham crackers and went from there.
Caramel Graham Squares
35 whole graham crackers
4 cups mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cups butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup coconut
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup Skor bits
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 13 X 18 cookie sheet with tinfoil. Lightly spray the tinfoil with cooking spray.
Line the cookie sheet with the whole graham crackers.
Sprinkle the mini marshmallows over the crackers.
In a medium saucepan, stir the butter and brown sugar over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar has dissolved. (I let it just come to a boil.) Remove from heat. Evenly pour the caramel sauce over the marshmallows.
Sprinkle with the coconut, almonds, Skor, and chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 for 15 - 18 minutes. Until nicely browned.
Remove from heat and let cool on wire rack. (I find carefully running a butter knife around the edge while the toppings are still warm helps to prevent it from sticking to the tinfoil too badly.)
When completely cool, use tinfoil to lift the square off of the pan, and cut into squares and serve.
Doesn't get much easier than that!
This is definitely easy to tailor to your personal preferences too. Switch up the toppings to your own favorites - butterscotch chips, pecans, white chocolate, blah blah blah.
The marshmallows make this especially addictive.
Who doesn't like ridiculously gooey, caramelly, chocolaty goodies?
Crazy people, that's who.
