  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120g) tahini

Instructions:

Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Baking Dish:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9-inch (23x23cm) baking dish and line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides for easy removal.

Make the Graham Cracker Crust:

In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted unsalted butter until well combined.

Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish to form an even layer. Set aside.

Make the Tahini Cookie Dough:

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the tahini, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

In a separate mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined.

Stir in the semisweet chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Assemble and Bake the Bars:

Spread the tahini cookie dough evenly over the graham cracker crust in the baking dish.

Sprinkle the mini marshmallows and semisweet chocolate chips over the top of the cookie dough.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the marshmallows are golden brown and the cookie dough is set.

Remove the bars from the oven and let them cool completely in the baking dish before slicing into squares.

Notes:

  • For an extra indulgent touch, you can drizzle melted chocolate over the cooled bars before serving.
  • Store any leftover bars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for longer freshness.
