We’re always looking for new ways to do s’mores. Easy S’mores Bars is a three-layer decadent twist and our new favorite.




S’mores– a rite of summer passage. And a decadent treat all year long.

These bars are a bit of a twist on traditional s’mores. The idea came from Lindsay Ostrum — and the recipe tweaked from our popular Graham Cookies.

So gooey, and utterly delicious.

Decadent? Yes. Healthy, no. But sometimes, you just need a bit of fun!

A welcome and delicious treat for a recent game night.

I use traditional marshmallows in this recipe. Somehow it just seems… right. But you can easily substitute marshmallow creme if you prefer.

One note, however. They are extremely gooey when they come out of the oven. Allow the s’mores bars to cool completely before cutting.

A three-layer decadent and oh-so-delicious twist on traditional s’mores. Easy, gooey, and chocolaty. It doesn’t get better than this!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 chocolate bars (I used Hersheys)
  • 25 marshmallows (or 7-oz jar of marshmallow creme)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment.

Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix. Then add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and crushed graham crackers.

In the bottom of the prepared 8×8 baking pan, press 1/3 of the dough in the bottom. Lift out the parchment with dough on it and set aside. This is the top layer.

Again, line the 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment and press remaining dough in the bottom. This will be your bottom layer.

Layer the dough with chocolate bars.

Top with marshmallow. I lay mine on their sides. Cover with the top layer you set aside.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.
