Good Eats - S'mores Bars

I made a new recipe over the weekend from a pin on my Pinterest page.  I haven't always had extreme luck with my pinned recipes, so when one turns out, I'm happy to share about it!  I needed a dessert for a get together and I didn't have much time to shop or pick up a ton of ingredients.  I realized I had all the items to make S'mores and we still haven't had a bonfire to have actual S'mores, so I decided to see if I could do a S'mores themed recipe.  I found this recipe I had pinned for Easy Milk Chocolate S'more Bars.  I had everything I needed to make this - win!

So when it says easy - it is definitely easy.  You need an 8 x 8 pan, some Hershey bars, Graham crackers, marshmallow fluff, butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder, flour and an egg.  And that's it.  You start out making dough that sort of seems like cookie dough at first - melt a stick of butter, add sugar and brown sugar and blend.  Add egg and vanilla and blend.  Then in a separate bowl you mix your crushed Graham crackers (they said to put them through a food processor, but I just crushed mine with a rolling pin in a Ziploc bag) with your flour and baking powder and then slowly add that to the wet dough.  It makes a nice thick dough.  Half goes on the bottom of your greased baking pan.  Then you layer in your chocolate bars, followed by a layer of marshmallow fluff.  The last part is the only tricky part, you need to put the other half of the dough on top of the fluff.  Nate helped me roll out the dough on some wax paper and then we just turned it over and peeled it off.  Then we just patted it down, filled any holes and it was good to go.  You bake it for a half hour at 350 and then let it cool before serving.


Oh-em-gee.  It's rich and decadent and delightful.  Gooey.  Sweet.  It was a hit!  I don't think I could eat more than one piece of this bad boy, it was so rich it almost made my teeth hurt, but I'm also not super used to milk chocolate these days.  I would like to try making this again with dark chocolate actually, I think I'd like it even better - but even with as sweet as it was I still really enjoyed it!


I think this would also be good with Reese's Peanut Butter cups as your chocolate base too, I know some people enjoy making S'mores out of those!  This would also go nicely with a small scoop of ice cream on the side!  Overall it was a winning recipe and I am so excited to have an option for extra S'mores fixings if I end up with some again!

    1. LOL no problem! Here in the US when we have a bonfire, we take and melt marshmallows over the fire, then put it between two graham crackers with a chocolate bar - the marshmallow melts the chocolate and it's like a little sandwich of awesome.

  5. Ok you are going to think of me as 'weird' but I don't like s'mores. I think they are weird. I'm not weird. They are. LOL and recall I don't like Oreo Cookies 'ither? Oreos are plain nasty. The chocolate part isn't chocolate; it is burnt cocoa. and the white part tastes like it has chips of something a kin to glass in it. Why would I want a sweet confection to assault me like that = burned cocoa with glass? Now let me think persactally what a smore reminds me of. hwmmmm? I just don't care for the marshmellow I think. Now give me chocolate dipped pretzels and we are talking. But the home made kind - not Flipz or whatever those are at the stores.

    Man, didn't know I was so picky about desserts? hmmmmmm. LOL
