S’mores Bars

 

These little goodies are just dreamy. I admit, Β wasn’t sure when I read the recipe. I love s’mores, in moderation. I’m not at all a super fan of them, and I enjoy the experience of making them – over a nice fire – more than I do eating them. But, I wanted to try something different. I had intended to bring these along for a work picnic, that was postponed. On the bright side, I had a bunch of these delicious treats to consume throughout the week. I loved the idea of a s’mores themed dessert but it had to be tasty, easy to transport, and easy to make. Check, check and check! This little treat took barely any time to make. Also, I should mention, NO BAKING! you literally do not need to pop anything in that oven. Perfect summer treat indeed. Tasty…..um, yea. Freaking tasty to be exact. These are so yummy I often eat more than one and then wonder why I’ve broken out into a sweat (hello sugar overload!). I also love how they aren’t quite a brownie and not quite a cookie. It’s unique! Also super easy to transport. Just keep ’em cold and they’ll last. Because you need to chill them, I would recommend leaving them in the fridge until you intend to serve them. Now, I’ve had s’mores themed desserts in the past. The graham cracker gets just a touch too crunchy and they just are not very good. I loved these, because you don’t bake anything. You just let it all set and enjoy! It’s soft, satisfying and did I mention delicious? Well…they are!

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil. Spray the foil lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe dish, melt butter. Add in graham cracker crumbs and mix until combined. Press the graham cracker mixture into the prepared baking dish. I used the bottom of a glass to help flatten the crust.
  3. In a saucepan, over low heat, heat the condensed milk and chocolate chips. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat and add in the salt and vanilla. Stir until blended. Pour the chocolate mixture over the graham cracker crust.
  4. Sprinkle the marshmallows over the chocolate and press down slightly. Then insert the graham cracker pieces randomly between the marshmallows. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to set if your refrigerator for about 4 hours. Remove from the fridge and cut into squares.
