For the Fruit:

  • 4 to 5 cups cored, peeled, and diced apples, (about 4 large apples)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons flour
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

For the Topping:

  • 1 sleeve (9 sheets) graham crackers, crushed into fine crumbs (use a food processor, OR put in a resealable bag and use a rolling pin to crush the graham crackers)
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 16 to 20 jumbo marshmallows, cut in half, crosswise


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.

For the Fruit:

  • To an 8-inch or 9-inch baking dish, add the diced fruit, brown sugar, flour and salt. Toss everything together to coat; set aside.

For the Topping:

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, flour, brown sugar, and salt.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and vanilla.
  • Using a spoon, mix and stir the melted butter into the graham cracker mixture until the crumbs are moist.
  • Spread crumb topping over the fruit, pressing down with the back of a spoon or with your hands to create an even layer.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and mixture is bubbling up.
  • Remove apple crumble from oven, then set oven to BROIL.
  • In the meantime, top the apple crumble with marshmallows in one single layer.
  • BROIL the apple crumble for 3 to 4 minutes, or until marshmallows are browned and toasted on top. Watch it closely so that the marshmallows don't burn.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
