I just pulled this out of my recipe clips file last night to make for this holiday season. I don't recall changing a thing when I made them for the first time last year, and they came out great! I plan to double this year since my fam went crazy over these...fool proof, simple and yummy; my kind of recipe! Also follow the previous reviewer's advice about lining the pan with foil. That made it a lot easier to get it out cleanly.
Made this for the first time recently to take to a function. It was a hit! I recieved requests for the recipe. I used an extra 1/2 cup of marshmallows, but other than that, I did not alter the ingredients. However, if you truly use a pan with an interior measurement of 15 x 10, you will need a couple of extra graham crackers (trim with a knife) to fill the small gap at the bottom of pan. Fill the pan so the graham crackers don't shift around during baking. As another reviewer suggested, make sure there is an overhang of foil on the short ends for removal from pan, spray the foil with nonstick spray, and do not overcook the butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture (only a minute after the butter is melted and sugar is incorporated into the butter). Watch the baking time carefully after the 12 minute mark. At 12 minutes, mine had browned only at the edges and not in the middle. Try to get to an overall golden brown without letting the outside edges get too overdone. I let it cool for about 15 min and then removed it from the pan by holding the 2 ends of the foil. I let it cool completely and then cut as directed with a sharp knife. The pizza cutter idea didn't work well for me. I will absolutely make this again.
These were so easy and quick to make. My husband likes them better than my toffee! I'm taking them to my church for a bake sale. I flipped them over on wax paper and cut them in rectangles the size of the grahams I'll be making another batch for us soon!
I recall making these delicious treats before & they were enjoyed very much! They're definitely on my keeper list & I plan to make them again!
this recipe is amazing. but i chage it up a little by replacing the nuts with pretzels.
it turns out as the perfect sweet and salty treat.
