S’mores Granola Bars

5 cups rolled oats or rolled mixed grains (I used a 5 grain mix from a health food store)
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
pinch salt
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups mini marshmallows

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 13×9 inch pan with parchment paper so that it comes up on the sides.

2. In a large bowl, combine oats, condensed milk, honey, salt, butter, and 1 cup of chocolate chips. With wet hands, press the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 18 minutes on the center rack of the oven. Remove from oven, sprinkle on marshmallows, and place on the upper rack of oven, and bake for 5 minutes more to toast the marshmallows. Allow to cool completely.

3. Place remainder of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt for 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring well after each zap to distribute the heat. Drizzle over cooled granola bars and refrigerate or freeze until bars set. Use the parchment paper to remove the granola from the pan and use a sharp knife to cut into bars.
