S'More Nut Bars

From The Culinary Couple | Source Baked

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 7 1/2 ounces milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 7 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • about 40 mini marshmallows, or 10 marshmallows cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup lightly salted whole peanuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped lightly salted peanuts

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Butter the sides and bottom of a 9×13-inch baking pan, or spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar. Add butter. Combine the mixture, then turn it out into the prepared pan. Press the crust into an even layer along the bottom and up the sides of the pan. (Use the bottom of a measuring cup to create a perfectly even crust.)
  3. Bake the crust for 10 to 15 minutes, or until it is golden brown. Remove pan from oven and place on a cooling rack.
  4. In a large heatproof bowl, toss chocolates together. Drizzle corn syrup over chocolate and set aside.
  5. In a medium saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Remove from heat and pour cream over chocolate mixture. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes. Starting in the center of the bowl and working your way out to the edges, whisk chocolate mixture in a circle  until completely smooth. Fold in marshmallows and whole peanuts. Pour mixture over prepared crust and use an offset spatula to spread it as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the top with chopped peanuts.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or until set. Cut into squares and serve. The bars will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days.
