Grease a 9x13-inch pan with butter or nonstick spray.
Put 9 graham cracker sheets into a large zip-top bag. Crush the crackers with a rolling pin or mallet, to make fine crumbs. Set aside.
Place the butter, 6 cups of miniature marshmallows, and the vanilla extract into a large stock pan. Melt over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until melted.Alternatively, place in a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. If the marshmallows are not yet melted after 1 minute, continue microwaving in 10-second intervals.
Add the graham cracker crumbs and the rice cereal into the melted marshmallow mixture. Stir until the cereal and crumbs are completely coated with the marshmallows.
Pour the marshmallow-cereal mixture into the 9x13-inch pan. Using your spatula, gently smooth out into bars, being careful not to pack in too firmly as that will make the bars stiff.
Break the remaining graham crackers into chunks. Sprinkle half of the graham crackers over the bars. Top with half of the chocolate, then add remaining graham crackers and the rest of the chocolate.Sprinkle the rest of the bag of marshmallows over the top of the bars.
Turn your oven broiler onto high and adjust the oven rack to the second from the top position. Place the bars onto the rack and heat until the marshmallows are golden brown.The total time will depend on your oven. It takes my oven about one minute. Check the marshmallows every 20 seconds, as they can burn quickly.
Spray the spoon or spatula with nonstick spray before stirring the cereal into the marshmallows. This will help prevent the marshmallow from sticking.
For clean slicing, spray a knife with nonstick spray before cutting the bars.
If using a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows, keep the flame at least 2-inches away from the marshmallows so you can control the toastiness level and they do not burn.
