So Delish Caramel Heavenlies

I wanted to share another family favorite recipe with you.  The first time I ever tasted these was at a family Christmas Party on a desert platter and they definitely made an impact.  Let me first warn you that they are very rich but so so so good.  The best part is that they are Super Easy and can be made in a matter of minutes, and to top it all off your kids can help you make them.

So here we go Caramel Heavenlies, bars filled with Yummy Goodness!  Caramel, graham crackers, marshmallows, toasted almonds and coconut.... Really could you ask for more in one bar? 

The ingredients:
  • 30 half graham crackers
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 - 4 cups marshmallows
  • 2 cups sliced almonds
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Start by lining a large cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Lets begin with the crust!  Line the bottom of the pan with graham crackers.

In a saucepan add the butter and brown sugar.  Melt and combine over medium heat until stirring until smooth.

 Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.  Set aside.

Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over graham crackers--the original recipe called for 2 cups, I usually use half a bag to make sure that every piece gets covered.  We love marshmallows. Mmm...

Pour saucepan mixture evenly over marshmallows.  Yes, I know mine is not pefectly even but as the marshmellows melt every piece gets covered.  You can also increase the butter/brown sugar to 1 cup each for extra caramel goodness--but you don't need it!

Spread shredded coconut over marshmallows and then top that off with sliced almonds.

Place in preheated oven for 15 minutes, until coconut and almonds are nice and toasted.

Remove from oven and cut into triangles once cooled.

Enjoy!!   What did I tell ya, so simple yet so delicious... Like a little bite of heaven..

Right before I took a bite....

They also make a great gift!

These are a favorite at our house and I hope they will be at yours as well!
