Ingredients:

1 package of Oreos, crushed into fine crumbs
1 cube (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk
7 graham cracker squares (just enough to create a layer in your pan)
3 – 8oz ounce bars of milk or semi-sweet chocolate (2 will be chopped and 1 melted)
4 cups mini marshmallows
Approx 2 cups Red, White and Blue M&M’s

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees!
2. Take a 9×13 and line it with tin foil! (This is a new trick that I’ve learned for brownies! It makes cutting them so much easier. You can just pop the brownies out from the pan! No more having to deform the corner brownie to cut and remove them.)
3. Crush the Oreo Cookies into fine crumbs. Combine the crushed oreos with the cube of melted butter. Press the oreo mixture into the bottom of the 9×13 pan.
4. Pour the sweet condensed milk over the oreo crust.
5. Break up the graham crackers and chocolate bar and sprinkle them over the sweet condensed milk. I personally prefer Milk Chocolate, but it’s totally up to your preference.
6. Sprinkle the mini marshmallows all over.
7. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
8. Remove from the oven and right away sprinkle the m&m’s all over the bars! 
9. Put back in the oven and cook for 5-7 more minutes.  
10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
11. While the bars are cooling, break up the last 4 oz chocolate bar with 3 tablespoons milk on the stove top and constantly mix until the chocolate is runny enough that you can drizzle it all over the bars. If needed, add more milk.  
12. After the bars are cooled, drizzle the milk chocolate over the top of the bars.
13. Allow to finish cooling and the chocolate to set before serving!

  • Made these last night. This morning I am having the most stressful time trying to peel the tinfoil off. Stopped mid way to write this review. Not to mention they now look like a mess. Do not recommend.

  • Made these for a fourth of July cookout. They were a hit but I had some trouble. When I tried cutting the bars the stuck to the foil and was seriously close to throwing them all away. But I flipped the whole thing upside down. Peeled off in three sections. Also not enough Graham crackers I couldn’t taste them at all and I used about half of the amount of m&ms so they wouldn’t be overwhelming. Also the drizzle on top is unnecessary. The bars are chocolatey enough and it melted everywhere. Lastly I bought my oreos at bjs so it wasnt a whole package. (I planned on making them again a few days later.) It 4 sleeves you want to use.
    With my adjustments i will be making these again.

  • These are delicious! However, I am so happy that I read the comments prior to making them because I had to make a few changes. Even with the changes, things were not perfect and I’ll need to make additional modifications if I make them again. First off, do not use foil.I used foil and I sprayed it quite heavily, but what I ended up with was a greasy, crumbly crust and bits of foil stuck in the bars. I suggest parchment paper instead. Further, I will pre-bake the crust just slightly to create a firmer foundation prior to pouring the condensed milk and adding the other ingredients. Next, I would suggest less condensed milk as it did contribute to more of a 4th of a July “pile” instead of a “bar.” Now for the measurements– the author does mean 4 oz bars, NOT 8 oz bars. Even with the 4 oz bars, 12 oz total was a little too much. I would suggest 6-8 oz broken into the body of the bar. There’s A LOT of chocolate in these bars and even for the biggest chocolate lover, it’s a little overwhelming. I’d increase the graham crackers to 5 sheets (10 squares) to make it more of a S’more bar and less of a double-chocolate bar. The amount of marshmallows was spot on. The M&M’s… good grief. My 2 cups did not look like the 2 cups in the picture. 2 cups of M&Ms on a 9×13 pan are right next to each other with no spacing. I’d cut it down to 1-1.5 cups if you’re using regular M&Ms. (They tend to settle into the measuring cup, making a very densely-packed 2 cups.) The chocolate drizzle was also a little overwhelming and I am finding in this 95* weather, it’s not setting up with the milk mixed in. Next time I’ll cut down the amount (again, 4 melted oz of chocolate mixed with 3 tablespoons of milk on a 9×13 pan is not a drizzle– it’s a covering!) to about 2-3 oz of chocolate and I’ll use something that firms up when room temperature to thin it out– perhaps coconut oil? I know this comment if full of criticism, so I will repeat myself: these bars are delicious. They’re perfect in theory for a 4th of July cookout, but not in practice.

  • So 1/2 cup is 1 stick but recipe says 1 cube. How much are you considering a cube? These didn’t seem to set up very well. Very disappointed

  • Wow, worst experience I’ve ever had making anything from Pinterest and I’ve made almost everything from it. Really wish I had read the comments. IF YOU USE FOIL, make sure you spray it with pam!! It took me an hour to peel off the foil and guess what, I made two batches!!? I had to cut off half of the crust because I couldn’t get the foil off and it made a HUGE MESS!! Also, there aren’t any 8 oz chocolate bars, only 4 oz. you should REALLY UPDATE your recipe!!

  • Hi, I’m planning to make these for tomorrow. Are the measurements for the chocolate bars off? Like a previous poster, I haven’t found 8oz bars. In the ingredients you say 3 – 8oz bars in the recipe, you say “break up the last 4oz chocolate bar”. Which is it? Also, can you use milk chocolate Hershey bars for this?

    thanks!!

  • I love the tin foil trick but I’d suggest to lightly spray the foil with Pam, because the treats will still stick to the foil! You’ll be pulling pieces of foil off your treats if you don’t. 🙁

  • Forgive me if this is a stupid question but on the graham cracker squares are you counting the individual pieces or the whole cracker as one? One graham cracker has 4 separate little rectangles right? So is this 1 or 4 ? 🙂

    Thanks!

    • Hey Melissa! Great question – I should go clarify in the post. It means actually squares, so that is like 1/2 of a bar of the graham crackers! Does that make more sense? Really you just need to make sure you pan gets a good coverage of graham crackers, so feel free to add / remove from my instructions! Good luck!
