Remove wrappers from chocolate bars. Break bars into pieces and set aside.
Make pudding: Stir together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt in a medium saucepan. Combine the egg yolks and milk in a bowl or a container with a pouring spout. Gradually whisk the milk mixture into the sugar mixture.
Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture boils. Boil and whisk for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Add chocolate and stir until melted and the mixture is well blended. Press plastic wrap onto the pudding surface to prevent skin from forming and set aside. Cool to room temperature.
Pudding can be made up to a day in advance and refrigerated until ready to assemble.
Beat cream cheese in a large mixing bowl until fluffy. Gradually beat in the marshmallow creme. Fold in thawed whipped topping until well blended. Set aside.
Place 3 whole graham cracker sheets on a large serving plate or tray to form a 5 x 7-inch rectangle. Spread 1 cup of the pudding over graham crackers. Top pudding with 3 full graham crackers and spread with 3/4 cup marshmallow mixture. Continue layering the remaining graham crackers, pudding and marshmallow mixture, ending with the marshmallow mixture on top. Cover the sides of the rectangle with the remaining marshmallow mixture. Refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.
Before serving, garnish with additional chocolate bar pips and graham cracker pieces, if desired. Refrigerate leftover dessert.
