Yield: 24 bars
  • 2¼ cups graham cracker crumbs (about 17-20)
  • 1 tbsp firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 7 oz milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 7½ oz dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1½ tsp light corn syrup
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3½ oz mini marshmallows (I used vegan marshmallows)
  • 1 cup lightly salted whole peanuts
  • 1 cup chopped lightly salted peanuts
  1. Preheat oven to 300. Line a 9×13-inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar. Add the butter. Use your hands to combine the mixture, then turn it onto the prepared pan. Press the crust into an even layer along the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
  3. Bake the crust for 10-15 minutes or until it is golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a cooling rack.
  4. In a large heatproof bowl, toss the chocolate together. Drizzle the corn syrup over the chocolate.
  5. In a medium saucepan, bring the cream just to a boil. Pour it over the chocolate mixture and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Starting in the center of the bowl and working your way out, whisk the chocolate mixture into the cream until it is completely smooth. Fold in the marshmallows and whole peanuts. Pour into the prepared pan and use an offset spatula to spread it evenly. Sprinkle the top with the chopped peanuts.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until set.
