2cupsgraham cracker crumbs
20ouncesdark chocolate chunks1 cup reserved
Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and preheat oven to 375°F.
In a mixing bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, sugar, baking powder, butter and vanilla.
Press mixture into a flat layer in the bottom of baking dish. Bake 15 minutes until top is lightly brown.
As soon as graham cracker crust comew out of the oven sprinkle all but 1 cup of chocolate chunks evenly and allow them to melt. Use a butter knife or spatula to press down, spread out and help the chocolate melt evenly. The heat from the crust will melt the chocolate.
Add marshmallows and then remaining chocolate chunks. Place under a pre-heated broiler for 30 seconds or so until the marshmallows are toasted just like a campfire.
When using the broiler do not step away from the oven. Watch closely and check every ten seconds. Toasting the marshmallows happens VERY quickly!
The melty chocolate is ooey gooey and is irresistible served warm. Even as the dish cools the chocolate will be very gooey when left in the heat on a hot summer day, so have some forks and plates ready to help enjoy this snack.
Chocolate chunks are much more similar to Hershey's bars and look more like smores than using regular chocolate chips.
Chocolate chips may be melted and pieces of a Hershey chocolate bar may be sprinkled on top if desired, but I really love the flavor that dark chocolate adds to this dessert.
Pan may be lined with parchment paper if desired to make bars easier to remove, cut and serve.
Store in an air tight container for 3 - 5 days on the counter. If the environment is warm place container in the refrigerator to help keep the chocolate a bit more firm.
