S'Mores Bars



I have been on a S'mores kick lately.  See some of my pins: Milk Chocolate S'moreos, Nutella S'mores Dip, Peanut Butter S'mores Dip, Grilled S'mores Banana SplitsS'more PaniniS'mores Brownies, Samoa S'mores, S'mores Brownie Pie... If there's a 12 step program for those with chocolate / graham cracker / marshmallow addictions I only want to join if one of the steps involves eating S'mores... In any event, when I stumbled across these S'mores Bars I decided they were going on my menu that week. We had company over for Labor Day and these were our dessert. Campfire goodies without the smoke. :) They were chewy and everyone gave them big thumbs up. They disappeared in about 24 hours flat. My son really liked these! I loved the soft pieces of chocolate combined with the chewy cookie base and the gooey melted marshmallows. Happiness in a little bar. I will definitely make these again!

Ingredients
1/2 tsp water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, unsalted (1 stick)
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (appx. 5 sheets, crushed)
1 cup chocolate chips, divided

  5. Gradually add in the salt, graham cracker crumbs and flour just until combined.
  6. Stir in half of the chocolate chips by hand.
  7. Spread batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven (make sure the bars are cooked through, return them to a 350 degree oven until cooked through if they are not ready). Turn the broiler on to lo.
  9. Sprinkle the mini marshmallows over the top of the bars and place under the broiler for about a minute, or until the marshmallows are lightly toasted. Watch carefully.
  10. Turn the oven off. Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the marshmallows. Return the pan to the oven for a few minutes until the chips have softened.
