Recipe Notes

* You might need a couple of extra graham crackers to fill the small gap at the bottom of pan. Some people suggested filling the pan so the graham crackers don't shift around during baking.
** Later on, I've found it even more easier and tastier to use marshmallow cream.
*** You might find this treat too sweet for you if you are not a sweet tooth kind of person. The original recipe called for 3/4 cup of sugar and some people still found it too sweet. I increased the sugar and butter combination as my guests are all caramel lovers.
