Ingredients

  • Nut crunch:

  • 2 cups Original Bisquick® mix

  • 1 cup oatmeal

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1/2 cup firm butter or margarine

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

  • Filling:

  • 1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips or 360gm dark chocolate, chopped

  • 1 package (10.5 oz) miniature marshmallows (5 1/2 cups)

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 2 cups whipping cream

  • Strawberries for decoration

Method

  • 1.

    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix nut crunch ingredients. With pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in walnuts. Spread in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, in 3-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips, marshmallows and milk over low heat in a water bath, stirring constantly, just until chocolate and marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Refrigerate about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon.

  • 3.

    In chilled large bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream. Fold 2 cups of the nut crunch into chocolate-cream mixture.

  • 4.

    In ungreased 13x9-inch or 10x10-inch dish, spread cup of the nut crunch. Carefully spread chocolate-cream mixture over crunch. Sprinkle with remaining crunch (about 1 cup). Cover; refrigerate until set, at least 8 hours.

  • 5.

    Finish it with some strawberries on top before serving.
