Easter Fluff Bars

A yummy graham cracker crumb base topped with white chocolate and oodles of pastel marshmallows makes a perfectly sweet Easter treat! This recipe makes a full 9 x 13 baking pan, but you can halve the recipe for an 8 x 8 pan if desired. If you are looking for another marshmallowy idea then you must try my very popular No-Bake Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher (coarse) salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 4 cups coloured mini marshmallows (I used Kraft Jet Puffed Fruit Flavoured Minis)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, graham crumbs, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
  5. Add in the flour mixture and combine until well incorporated.
  6. Spread the dough evenly over the parchment in the pan.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes until golden and then remove from oven . . . but don’t turn the oven off – you will need it for one last step!
  8. Immediately sprinkle the white chocolate chips over the freshly baked base. Let stand for 1-2 minutes until heated and softened, and then spread evenly over the entire base with a offset spatula.
  9. Sprinkle the marshmallows over the melted white chocolate chips then place pan back into the oven for 1 minute until the marshmallows puff.
  10. Remove pan from oven, and turn the oven off.
  11. Let cool completely then cut into equal squares.
