Want something supersweet, gooey, and absolutely irresistible? You’ve come to the right place!

This month my assigned Secret Recipe Club blogger was Adventures in All Things Food. Andrea is a mom of three kids under 6 (oh wait – that sounds familiar!) and writes about everything from food to family to books (yay!) and more. I loved her latest post about decorating pudding cups for Halloween; I might have to do that for Libbie’s classroom snack at the end of the month.

Andrea’s recipes were very enticing. I would have made these skillet potatoes if I’d had any mushrooms on hand. YUM!

But I was looking for something quick and sweet, and these “Triangle Delights” fit the bill. (I totally remembered the name as Magic Triangles. Because my brain is dead. Both wonderful titles work.) They are easy to customize with what you have. I didn’t have as many mini-marshmallows as I thought I did, so I threw some little caramel pieces on and they added a great chewy factor. I used a mix of dark and white chocolate chips, omitted nuts, and only put coconut on half since my husband doesn’t like it. I was wishing I had put some nuts on top, though, because I think the sweet-salty factor would really put these over the top! (Pretzels might work, too. YUMMM!)

I love this kind of fake-cookie to give out around Christmas. Since you can make a whole jelly-roll pan full quickly and then cut it apart, it takes a lot less time than cookies. When I want to make homemade Christmas goodies, I default to barks, chocolate-dipped pretzels and Oreos, and saltine candy. And now, this graham cracker s’more-thingy will totally be part of my repertoire.

Magic Triangle Faux-Cookies

Ingredients

  • whole graham crackers - about 15, enough to cover the bottom of your jelly-roll pan
  • 3 c. mini marshmallows, or a mix of mini marshmallows and caramel bits
  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • toppings (use some, all, or make up your own)
  • chocolate chips
  • shredded coconut
  • sliced almonds

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350. Line a jelly-roll pan with parchment paper or a silpat. Place whole graham crackers on top in a single layer. Sprinkle with mini marshmallows/caramel bits.

Over medium heat, cook butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, stirring, until butter is melted and sugar is mostly dissolved. Remove from heat; add vanilla. Pour over marshmallow layer.

Sprinkle with additional toppings.

Bake 12-15 minutes, until top begins to brown.

Let cool before cutting into small triangles. (Cut each graham cracker in half, then each square into triangles.) Enjoy!

  1. Glad to meet you Jessie! Yes, I am sure we both have pretty energetic (and hungry!) households. 🙂 Love these cookies something fierce. Love your additions. Sometimes I get the best inspiration by not having as many marshmallows or having something entirely different on hand. Have a great week!
