In honor of National S’more Day yesterday, we decided to make S’more bars for The Hot Spot. It was a seriously sweet (yet oh-so-delicious) treat we all enjoyed very much. I do not recommend making this recipe too often because of the high amount of sugar, but it was fun to make regardless. The best part is it was SUPER easy and took maybe 10 minutes to put together before baking.
The original recipe came from Megan’s Cookin’, a page we found on Pinterest (love that site by the way – how did we ever manage without it?). We made a minor change, and I actually suggest cutting back on the sugar just a bit more. The graham crackers were sweet enough without the loads of sugar and butter.
(originally posted by Megan’s Cookin’)
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 bag milk chocolate chocolate chips
- 1/2 bag miniature marshmallows
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan.
2.Mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar until mixed. Press half of dough in prepared pan.
3.Sprinkle chocolate chips over graham cracker layer. Sprinkle with mini marshmallows; scatter bits of remaining graham cracker crust over marshmallows. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or just until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. 16 bars.
Freakin’. Amazing. These are SUPER rich so be sure to cut them small. I actually recommend using a slightly larger dish (like a 9 x 9 instead of 8 x 8), because they aren’t small in height. HIGHLY recommended to try though, due to being easy and delicious.
