2 sleeves of graham crackers, crushed
1 package (about 2 cups) chocolate chips (choose your favorite type)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking dish (approximately 9×9 inches) or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
Prepare Graham Cracker Base: Crush the graham crackers in a large bowl until you have fine crumbs. You can do this by placing the graham crackers in a zip-top bag and using a rolling pin to crush them.
Combine Ingredients: Add the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract to the bowl with the crushed graham crackers. Mix everything together until well combined.
Create the Bar Mixture: The mixture should come together into a sticky, dough-like consistency. Ensure that the chocolate chips are evenly distributed.
Transfer to Baking Dish: Press the mixture evenly into the greased baking dish. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth the top.
Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the edges are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter).
Cool and Slice: Allow the bars to cool in the baking dish for about 15-20 minutes. Once they have cooled slightly, you can transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, cut into squares or bars.
Serve: Serve these delicious graham cracker chocolate bars on a plate and enjoy! They are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth or as a delightful treat for any occasion.
You can add 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans) for extra crunch.
Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top before baking for a sweet and salty flavor contrast.
These easy graham cracker chocolate bars are not only quick to make but also incredibly tasty. Enjoy the simplicity of this delightful treat!
