no-bake s'mores cookie dough bars

s'mores are a quintessential component to any and every summer campout.
i can't really think of anything better than being fireside and roasting marshmallows to sandwich between graham crackers and chocolate (or if your like me you sub out chocolate for a reese peanut butter cup, try it!!)

being that on this regular tuesday {at least it was yesterday} i was situated at home, campfire-less, i decided instead to take my love for all things s'mores and make a no bake cookie dough bar as a substitute to the classic gooey, sticky treat.

also it means my freezer is now stock piled w/ these gems for a quick go-to whenever the s'more urge strikes.
oh, i'm also gifting these, since i'm pretty sure i can't be trusted.

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 {14-ounce} can condensed milk

1 1/3 cup mini marshmallows; divided
