What’s not to love about a s’smore? It’s ooey and gooey and chocolatey and crunchy and reminds many of us of childhood camping trips. My kids also love s’mores as much as I did! I was even lucky enough to share Ethan’s first s’more experience and Lila and Mia’s first s’mores too! And I’ve shared a few of my favorite recipes for s’mores.
These recipes for s’mores each contain a twist on the old (and messy and kind of a pain in the neck) way of making s’mores over the campfire. These S’mores Cookie Bars take a bit of work to make, but are always a hit. And this super easy S’mores Snack Mix is something you can make it bulk and let the kids snack on after school or even send in their lunch for a sweet treat.
So when I came across this recipe for a different variation on s’mores cookie bars, I knew I had to try them out. Good recipes for s’mores are hard to come by, and I’ve tried some that just weren’t good or didn’t taste like the real thing. I like this recipe because it tastes exactly like a s’more and it makes a whole pan of them. They’re so rich that the kids only want a little of it and they’re happy, so I make a mess once and have a treat for them for a week!
I originally was going through recipes for s’mores to take to a party last weekend and nothing sounded original enough to try. But this recipe sounded delicious and perfect. I hope you think so too!
Recipes for S’mores: S’mores Bars
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hersheyâ??s) NOTE: I didn't have these, so I used 3-1/2 regular sized bars and broke them up.
- 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
- Preheat oven to 350Â°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
- Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hersheyâ??s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick.
- Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff.
- Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (I gently spread it out with the back of a greased spoon)
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned.
- Cool completely before cutting into bars.
So are they good? Let’s just say that Ethan asked if I had put a little bit of heaven in them when I made them! I also had 3 people ask me for the recipe.
