Unconventional S'mores

S'mores. Delicious. Chocolate. Goodness. 

Sometimes it's fun to switch it up a bit, even with something as perfect as a s'more. Especially when you don't want to build a campfire in your backyard.

This recipe was inspired by these incredible Toffee Bars my Grandma makes. They're my favorite. But these are a close second. Probably because they are so similar to my Grandma's bars. :)



Line a 9x13" baking dish with foil. Place graham crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle 1/2 c. brown sugar over them. Pour butter over that.

Place in a oven preheated to 350 and bake for 5-10 minutes or until the sugar has melted and becomes slightly bubbly.


Remove from oven, sprinkle 1 c. chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for a few minutes. Spread the chocolate with a spatula. Add 1-2 c. mini marshmallows. Return to the oven again and bake until the marshmallows are golden brown.


Like so.

Allow to cool and then cut into bars.


I ate two of these for lunch the day I made them.

I'm healthy like that.

S'more Bars (printable recipe)
Yields about 18 bars

1 bag graham crackers.
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. brown sugar
4 Hershey bars, broken into pieces
2 cups mini marshmallows

Line a 9x13" pan with foil. Arrange crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. Spread brown sugar over the crackers. Pour melted butter over the top of the sugar and crackers.

Bake at 350 until the brown sugar begins to bubble, about 5-10 minutes. 

Remove from oven and top with broken Hershey bars. Allow bars to sit for a few minutes as the chocolate melts. Spread chocolate with a spatula. Top with a layer of mini marshmallows. Return pan to the oven for 2-5 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown. Allow bars to cool before cutting and serving. I personally like mine to be cold. :)

  3. @Reagan - I say Sunday! Then you can eat the whole pan and not feel guilty about it. :)

    @Jenny - I hope you try it! It's pretty darn easy, even if you're not comfortable baking.
