S’mores Bars

20130823 Smores Bars 02

What do you do after a camping trip? Make s’mores bars with the extra supplies from the campfire!  These are quick to come together, and they are best eaten a little warm. This prevents the marshmallow from getting too chewy. This recipe was inspired by Pinterest.

You will need:

  • 1 bag sugar cookie mix (e.g., Betty Crocker)
  • 1 1/4 c graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 T ground cinnamon
  • 1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • ~ 12 oz chocolate bars (this is about 6 of the regular Hershey’s), chopped
  • 5 T Nutella
  • 4 c marshmallow pieces (we cut regular sized ones into quarters)

Then you will…

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9×13 baking dish with tinfoil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cookie mix with the graham cracker crumbs and cinnamon.
  3. Stir in the butter until well mixed.
  4. Press dough into the prepared baking dish. Spread it evenly with your fingers.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the center is roughly set.
  6. Remove from the oven.
  7. Sprinkle the chocolate pieces on top and drop the Nutella around the top. Allow the dish to sit about 5 minutes. This will let the heat melt the chocolate.
  8. Use a knife to lightly mix the chocolate with the Nutella and spread it evenly over the top.
  9. Dot the top with the marshmallow pieces.
  10. Turn on your broiler in your oven to high. Return the dish to the oven, making sure it is about 5-6 inches away from the broiler.
  11. Watch closely and remove as the marshmallows start to brown. This should only take about 30 seconds.
  12. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at least 10 minutes before slicing!
