Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Bars
12whole graham crackerscrushed (I put them in a sandwich bag and use a rolling pin to crush them and I used honey graham crackers. My crackers came nine to a package and each cracker has 4 sections)
1cupquick cooking oats or rolled oatsuncooked
1cupbutter or 16 tablespoons or 2 sticksmelted
1cuppecans or walnutscrushed (Optional)
115 ounce 100% pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie mix)
112 ounce can evaporated milk
1cupchopped nutswalnuts or pecans
Crush the graham crackers and put in large bowl along with oats, brown sugar and melted butter. Mix well. If using nuts stir them into the mixture.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray and press the graham cracker mixture out to cover the bottom of the dish. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. Spread miniature marshmallows and chocolate chips out over cooled crust.
Stir all the above ingredients together with a spoon until well mixed. Pour over cooled crust, marshmallows and chocolate chips, spread to cover with a knife. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove and add topping.
Mix together and sprinkle over pumpkin bars after they have cooked 20 minutes. Return to 350 degree oven and bake another 25 minutes to let the pumpkin pie filling set.
Remove and let cool about 25 minutes before serving. These keep well in the refrigerator for several days and makes about 36 bars depending on the size you cut them.
