Ingredients

Graham Crackers:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup wheat bran
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups lightly-packed light brown sugar
Ganache:
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
Marshmallow:
  • 2 teaspoons powdered gelatin
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

For the graham crackers: In a bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat bran, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the honey, milk and vanilla. Set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. At low speed, stir in the dry ingredients alternating with the milk mixture. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Shape the dough into a disk and sandwich between two pieces of floured parchment paper. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick. Cut out cookies using a 2-inch round cookie cutter. Gather up the scraps, roll again and cut out more cookies. Arrange the cookies about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the edges are lightly golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let them cool completely on the baking sheets.

For the ganache: Put the chocolate in a bowl. In a saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate. Let melt for 1 minute without stirring. With a whisk, stir until smooth. Whisk in the butter. Cover and refrigerate until the ganache is cold but still spreadable, about 30 minutes. 

For the marshmallow: Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup water in the bowl of an electric mixture and let bloom for 5 minutes. Combine the sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook until all of the sugar has dissolved and the mixture registers 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Beat the gelatin mixture on medium high and slowly drizzle in the sugar mixture and vanilla. Continue to beat until the marshmallow topping cools and forms stiff peaks, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a pastry bag or resealable plastic bag if desired. Preheat the broiler. To assemble the cookies, spread about 1 teaspoon of the ganache on each cookie. Top with a piped swirl or dollop of marshmallow. Broil until the marshmallows turn golden, rotating as needed, about 1 minute. Let cool and serve.
