Are you a lover of S’mores Bars?

I love the ingredients of s’mores bars. What’s not to like with graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows?

But, I don’t actually like the usual way of making them where you start with a graham cracker, add a square of a Hershey bar, and then squeeze on a big melting marshmallow with another graham cracker. I find that method to be too inconsistent and I don’t like that much graham cracker in every bite.

So imagine my delight when I came across this recipe for baked smores bars!

Yes, you read that correctly.

In this delicious and fun-to-make smores bars recipe the final product is more of a smore cake! (In fact, this is what I have every December 9 for my birthday cake as it’s so DELICIOUS!!!).

Here is the finished recipe for the most DELICIOUS S’Mores Bars (“cake”). It’s made with a delicious, graham cracker crust that’s been softened by melted butter and sugar (sigh!).

Then a chocolate mixture is concocted from sweetened condensed milk (need I say more?) combined with melted dark chocolate and a tiny bit of vanilla extract.

Next, this chocolate is evenly covered with a layer of mini marshmallows.

All this gets baked for a final few minutes to make the most delectable treat!

Here are the finished s'mores on a cute ceramic platter.
