      APMango marshmallow bars.

 

1½ cups graham cracker crumbs

3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

6 tablespoons butter, melted

2 cups chopped dried mango, chopped

1 cup plus 6 tablespoons water, divided

¾cup heavy cream

1 bag (11½ ounces) milk chocolate chips

1 packet (¼-ounce) gelatin

½cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup corn syrup

Pinch salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Colored sugar or sprinkles

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with baking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and flour. Stir in the melted butter until thoroughly combined. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan and press to form an even layer. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until toasty and browned. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-high, combine the chopped mango and 1 cup of the water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.

Once the crust and mango have cooled, pour off and discard any excess liquid from the mango. Transfer the mango to a bowl, then wipe the saucepan clean.

Return the pan to medium heat. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to very low, then add the chocolate. Stir until melted and smooth. Stir in half of the mango, then pour the mixture over the crust and spread in an even layer. Refrigerate until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, make the marshmallow layer. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the gelatin with 3 tablespoons of the remaining water. Set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium-high, combine the remaining 3 tablespoons water with the granulated sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook without stirring until the mixture reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Pour the mixture into the mixer with the gelatin. Using the whisk attachment, beat on high (be careful not to splash the hot syrup) until cool, 7-9 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and the remaining half of the mango. Spread the marshmallow mixture evenly over the cooled chocolate layer, then sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles. Allow to fully set up, about 2 hours, before cutting into 24 bars. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Makes 24 bars.
