Good Eating Monday: Indoor S'mores!

It was in the late 1960's when I tried my first S'More. I think the recipe was in the 4-H Cooking Project book. After that first taste, it was a family favorite whenever we had a wiener roast outside, since classic S'Mores involved toasted marshmallows.
The original recipe calls for Hershey bars, but we found Hershey bar pieces weren't that responsive to melting all that fast or well under a single hot marshmallow, so we switched to using Brach's Chocolate Stars, which melt perfectly!
We'd used 3 or 4 stars per half a graham, topped with a fat toasted marshmallow and they were perfect!

So, with fond memories of S'Mores, today's recipe is a Pinterest recipe for Indoor S'Mores I tried out this week!
The recipe is simple, though I used a bag of Chocolate Stars instead of Hershey Bars because they melt better. 
The Indoor Recipe didn't mention a pan size, though the picture and ingredient quantities suggest it's a jelly roll pan.
The only problem I found with the recipe was there was no directions for exactly how to go about getting this super hot treat out of the super hot pan onto a serving plate while it's still warm & gooey.
This treat cools down fast, but you can refrigerate leftovers and warm them up the next day in over or microwave.
So, I post the recipe here as it is from Pinterest:

Indoor S'Mores
56 Honey Graham Crackers, divided in half
Hershey Bars, divided into 28 small sections
Mini Marshmallows, about 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray a large baking pan, like a jelly roll pan, with oil spray,
Layer with Graham cracker halves.
Layer each Graham cracker half with chocolate pieces.
Top with mini-marshmallows (Try to keep them on top of the crackers, not off to side in pan)
Bake for 3 - 5 minutes
Remove from oven and top with remaining crackers, matching half to half.

Like I said, it's tricky getting them out of the hot pan for serving while they're still gooey, because they cool down quick.
You can choose your own favorite chocolate. I made half a recipe with 1 bag of  Brach's Chocolate Stars, so a full recipe would probably take 2.
