Guest Post–Want Some More S’more Bars?


Today is a guest post from none other than my daughter who is home for the summer from college. Enjoy!

Hi everyone! For the past four months I haven’t been able to re-create any of my mom’s freshly baked desserts, due to the lack of kitchen appliances in my dorm. Upon arriving home, I was craving something sweet so I decided to make a  S’more bar complete with a graham cracker crust, warm melted chocolate and toasted fluffy marshmallows…YUM. S’mores are something that automatically takes me back to childhood summers so I couldn’t think of a better dessert to eat my first day of summer vacation.  I found a recipe online which seemed easy enough to try for my mid-afternoon dessert craving, however, I added chopped walnuts for a little added texture  and white chocolate chips in addition to the milk chocolate.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 cup butter or margarine, melted

2 cups milk chocolate chips

1 cup white chocolate chips

1 bag of big marshmallows

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix and crumbs. Stir in melted butter until soft dough forms. Press into ungreased 13×9-inch pan.

2. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until set. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt. Spread chocolate evenly over crust.

3. Set oven control to broil. Sprinkle marshmallows over melted chocolate. Broil with top 4 to 5 inches from heat 20 to 30 seconds or until marshmallows are toasted. (Watch closely; marshmallows will brown quickly.) Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm. Store any remaining bars tightly covered.

These bars were super easy, and equally sweet. The graham cracker crust was chewy, and contrasted well with the smooth chocolate and warm marshmallows. Perfect for a quick midafternoon pick-me-up 🙂
