White and Milk Chocolate S'mores Gooey Cake Bars

So...the title of this post says it all. White chocolate? Milk chocolate? S'mores? Cake? Yes, please!! My good friend and co-worker showed me this recipe a few months ago and I literally had to wipe the drool off my face when I saw it! These bars are pretty much to die for. Ooey and gooey and rich and yummy. I can only take about two bites and that's enough until I go back later for more.
I made these yesterday to take over to our friend's Christmas party and they were quite a hit! 

Press half of the cake mix into the bottom of a lined pan.

Place the graham crackers in a single layer over the cake mix.

 Sprinkle the milk and white chocolate chips over the graham crackers.

 Then the mini marshmallows...

Spread out the rest of the cake mix over the grahams, chocolate and marshmallows.

 Pour over the sweetened condensed milk.  This gooey stuff is super sweet on it’s own, so go easy with it.
The bars were very rich, so I cut them into bite sized pieces. The top was gooey and the bottom was chewy with a crispy center. You have the best of all textures in one little bite!
White Chocolate S'mores Cake Bars
Recipe adapted from Picky Palate
*I doubled the original recipe to fit a 9x13 pan. Cut the ingredients in half to fit an 8x8 pan. I also added both white chocolate and milk chocolate chips because I had half a bag of each on hand.  

2 boxes yellow cake mix
2 large eggs
2 sticks (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
10 full graham crackers
5 oz white chocolate chips (1/2 bag)
5 oz milk chocolate chips (1/2 bag)
2 cups mini marshmallows

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil that’s been generously sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure foil goes all the way up and over the edges for this one. It will be a full pan.

2. Place cake mix, egg, and butter into a large mixing bowl. Mix until a nice dough forms similar to a cookie dough. Press half of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Layer with graham crackers, white chips then marshmallows. Top with remaining half of dough pressing evenly. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over top. You might want to go a little light on this as mine had to much and was a bit runny even when the bars were done.

3. Bake for 28-33 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown on top. Remove from oven. Let cool for 5 minutes then take a plastic knife and run along edges to loosen marshmallow (this will make your life easier when pulling foil out of pan to remove bars. Let cool completely then remove bars from pan with foil edges. Cut off all edges if desired, about 1/2 inch each side. I save the edges to snack on too. Cut bars into squares and serve. They are delicious room temperature or chilled.
