This is my idea of a delicious birthday dessert.
I’m really not a cake lover like the rest of my family.
So when my big day rolls around, I make this fun recipe for Yummy Smores Bars.
Are you a fan of s’mores? That gooey mixture of melted marshmallows, milk chocolate and graham crackers.
I always think the idea of cooking over a campfire is neat.
I don’t like the fact that to eat a s’more that way, the graham crackers overpower the marshmallows and chocolate.
My recipe is much more fun and it’s the perfect End of the Summer (think August or September Dessert! See if you don’t agee. AND please tell me your thoughts below in the comments! Thanks so much!
Here’s a video of the recipe for you:
Yummy Smores Bars
Ingredients : (for the Yummy Smores Bars)
-8 whole graham crackers (I prefer these to graham cracker crumbs)
-6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
-1/4 cup sugar
-4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, cut into medium chunks (I hate cutting up chocolate as the bars are so hard. So what I do instead is I remove the bar from the box but keep the wrapper folded around the bar. Then I slam the bar against the counter several times until it’s in small enough pieces. Works great!)
-1 can ( 14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 1/2 – 2 cups mini marshmallows
- Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position. Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with heavy duty foil, leaving an overhang on two long sides to facilitate removal of bars.
- To make the graham cracker crust: Spray the pan bottom with vegetable cooking spray, then line with the graham crackers, trimming as necessary to fit.
3. Mix butter and sugar in a small bowl.
Pour over the crackers, and spread evenly with a rubber spatula.
Bake until sugar bubbles, around 7 minutes. Let cool on a rack until sugar hardens, about five minutes. (Leave oven on.)
Meanwhile heat chocolate and condensed milk in a large heavy bottomed saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate melts. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Spread chocolate mixture over the graham crackers. Sprinkle with marshmallows.
Return to oven and bake until marshmallows turn golden brown, about 7 minutes longer.
Use foil to lift from pan. Cut bars with a knife coated with vegetable spray.
Let cool on a wire rack.
