S’mores Bars

This is a super easy, very rich, but very delicious dessert. Not as nice as sitting around a campfire making s’mores, but if you are city bound like we are, this is the next best thing. It’s so easy kids will love making it, too.

S'mores Bars

Here’s the recipe.

Here is the basic run down:

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Butter a 13×9 baking dish. Make a graham crackers crust using 1 cup melted butter, 1/3 cup sugar, about 3 cups graham cracker crumbs (2 of the packages of graham crackers inside a box-grind ’em up in a food processor). Press half the graham cracker crust into the pan. On top of this pour a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (or you could do a layer of milk chocolate bars or chips). On top of the chips pour 3 cups of marshmallows, or more if you really like them. Sprinkle the rest of the graham cracker crust on top of the marshmallows and press down with a spatula. Stick it in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the marshmallows are melted. If you want to eat it hot you will have to use a spoon as it is really messy. You can let it cool completely in order to eat it as a bar, but personally I think the mess is half the fun!

Told you it was easy. 🙂

On another note, we cleaned out our guest room last night. More than twice Kevin looked at me and said “Kendra. You have a problem.” And he was usually looking at a random box of random craft stuff, some of it dating back to the early nineties. There were more bags of yarn than any one woman should probably have, in addition to five or six bags and boxes of gift wrap, gift bags, tissue paper, and ribbon. It looks like I’m going to have to start crafting. Maybe I’ll blog on that too…
