Caramel Heavenlies

These are as tasty as they are easy. They taste like a lot more effort!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

14 graham crackers
2 C mini marshmallows
3/4 C butter
3/4 C brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 C sliced almonds
3/4 C flaked coconut

Line a 11X7 pan with parchment paper. That part in important otherwise they will stick and you won't be able to get them out of the pan. Place 12 graham crackers side by side on top of the parchment. You will need to break a another few crackers in half to fill in the space of the pan.

Sprinkle the marshmallows on the crackers. Set aside while you make the caramel.

Melt the butter; add the cinnamon and the brown sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves and then let it boil while stirring for around 2 minutes. Take off heat and add vanilla. Pour over the graham crackers. Sprinkle with the almonds and coconut. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes until browned. Cool completely. Peel off parchment paper and then cut into squares and then in half again to make diamonds.
* The filling hardens while cooling. It will not be fully set ( a little jiggly) when it comes out of the oven.


  1. Is that supposed to be 11X17 or 7?

    Looks really good.

    11 3/4 X 7 1/2. An 8 X 11 pan I'm sure would work fine. I was thinking some choc. chips sprinkled on top before baking would also be good ( :
