 As an adventurous food blogger, I’m always on the hunt for unique and delicious recipes. On my recent culinary journey through American cuisine, I stumbled upon a delightful dessert that’s as American as apple pie – the Graham Slam Sweet Treat. This recipe is a testament to the creativity of American dessert recipes, combining simple ingredients in an ingenious way.

The Graham Slam Sweet Treat is a crowd-pleaser, perfect for serving up to eight people at your next gathering.

It’s a full-fledged sweet treat with graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate – a true homage to classic American cuisine desserts.

The magic of this recipe lies in its ingredients: 16 whole graham crackers form the crunchy base while a cup each of unsalted butter and brown sugar create a sweet caramel-like sauce. A hint of vanilla extract adds depth to the flavor profile. The real fun begins with two cups of mini marshmallows and semi-sweet chocolate chips that melt into gooey goodness, with optional chopped nuts adding a delightful crunch. These ingredients come together to create an addictive sweet treat that’s part of our easy baking recipes for beginners collection.

Making this homemade Graham Slam dessert is as easy as pie! Start by preheating your oven and lining your baking tray with parchment paper – these are key steps in many baking tray sweet treats recipes.

After adding vanilla extract, pour this mixture over your crackers and bake until bubbly. Then comes my favorite part: sprinkling mini marshmallows and chocolate chips over the hot base before returning it to the oven until they soften and puff up slightly – it’s like watching marshmallow chocolate dessert magic happen right before your eyes! Let it cool completely before cutting into squares for serving.
