S’mores Bars

Let’s talk about the delicious milkshake I had the other day, shall we?

It was a s’mores milkshake.

Full of marshmallow and chocolate goodness.

I was in love.

And it came just a few days after making these delightful squares while I was at my parents cottage.

Because being at the cottage screams bonfires and melted marshmallows and s’mores.

They’re super easy to make and come together pretty quickly.

And everyone will love you, because who doesn’t love s’mores?

S’mores Bars

(slightly adapted from Anna Olson)

1 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup milk

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

24 graham crackers

1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 x 200 g bags of semi sweet chocolate chunks

4 cups mini marshmallows

Prepare pan by overlapping two pieces of parchment paper so they hang over the sides of a pan.  I used an 8.5 x 11 pan as I was at the cottage and had to work with what was available.  I’m sure a pan of slightly different dimensions would work.  Line bottom of pan with a layer of graham crackers.

Melt butter over low heat in a pot on the stove.  Add brown sugar, vanilla, and milk and stir until sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat.  Stir in graham cracker crumbs.

Pour half the sugar mixture over the graham cracker lined pan.  Pour a third of the chocolate chunks over that.  Then top with half of the marshmallows.  Do another layer of graham crackers.  Then top with the remaining sugar mixture.   Then another third of the chocolate.  Then the rest of the marshmallows.  Top with remaining chocolate.

Bake in a 350º preheated oven for about 12 minutes until marshmallows are browned.

Cool completely and even chill in the fridge, before lifting out of pan and slicing.  Store leftovers (if you have any), in the fridge because they go soft and messy pretty quickly.
