I love s'mores, and was somewhat but not completely satisfied with this bar. I used an 8x8 pan, line with aluminum foil and lightly greased to help with the sticking and removal. It was so much easier to just lift and cut. I also only used a stick of butter (1/2c). I would cut the amount of sugar in the crust in half if you aren't much of a sweet tooth. I only had one bag of chips, which is only 2 cups, so I just made do. It was more than plenty. This was my layering system: 3/4 of graham cracker mix, all but a handful of chocolate chips, as many marshmallows that would form a single layer in the pan, sprinkled with left over chips, then pressed the rest of the graham cracker crumbs on top. The marshmallows started browning after 10 min, I cooked for 11. Put in the freezer/fridge to help cool and harden. I was afraid of not cooking the crust first, and I would def cook it first next time, before adding the chips and marshmallows. Then put it back in to melt the chips and marshmallows. It wasn't very crunchy, more soggy, on the bottom. I tried these hot and cold, and actually preferred cold smores for once in my life. UPDATE: I just made these with 1/8 c sugar in the crust and they were excellent. Sweet enough, but not killer sweet. I also prebaked my crust, and it didn't make that much of a difference in texture, so I will skip that next time. I only used 1/2 c butter the first time i made these, and the crust was much better.
