Super easy. No stirring, no bowls. All you need is a 9x13 pan.
Decadent and chocolatey and delicious. Really, how can you go wrong with buttery graham crackers, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips.
Totally customizable. Everything in this recipe is totally swap-outable. Replace your favorite cookie for the graham crackers. Use milk chocolate or white chocolate chips. Add butterscotch chips, if you like. Use pecans, macadamia nuts or peanuts. Heck, even throw in some dried cranberries or cherries. Top it with sea salt or sprinkles. Go to town and make these your own.
A little goes a long way. Because they’re quite rich, you CAN cut these into tiny little bites -- but I don’t ;).

Pyrex Easy Grab Bakeware Dish
Why don't all bakeware dishes have handles? It's not easy pulling a pan from the oven without putting an oven-mitted thumb in it somewhere. Once I stumbled upon these Pyrex bakeware pans with handles, I rarely use anything else.

Of course, you can buy graham cracker crumbs. Or you can whiz up some graham crackers in a little food processor like this one and make your own in about 5 seconds. Up to you.
