12 Days of Cookies, 2016 - Day 9: Caramel Cluster Bark

Made by Jaki Fraser, Manager of the Lawrencetown library, from Saltscapes Magazine Nov/Dec 2016 pg.25
18 Graham Crackers
1/2 cup (125 ml) butter
1/2 cup (125 ml) brown sugar
1 cup (250 ml) condensed milk
1 bag (250 g) mini marshmallows
12 (approx.) chocolate covered peanut caramel clusters
NOTE: The recipe called for Ganong Peanut Clusters, which I couldn’t find, so I substituted with OMG Graham Clusters with peanuts and toffee bits... easy to find.
Line a rimmed cookie sheet with foil, butter the foil and place the graham crackers evenly on the sheet.
In a medium sized heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter, add sugar, condensed milk and marshmallows and slowly melt, stirring continually.  Pour the mixture evenly over the graham crackers and sprinkle chopped peanut clusters on top.  Bake in a pre-heated 400 F oven for 5 – 6 minutes.  With a fork spread cluster mix around then allow to cool 10 minutes.  Refrigerate additional 30 min.  Break candy into chunks and store in covered airtight container.
Jaki says, “Although this isn’t really a cookie... I wanted to try as they seemed really yummy.... Come in on the 15th and see what you think !”
