S'mores Bars


I haven't had a S'mores all summer long. A tragedy. And now we are in August and I have major catch up to do.  I am not the camping type so spending a week in the woods for a camp fire is out of the question.


Instead I resort to the grill, the stove top, and the microwave for a classic S'mores. I am also collecting major recipes from fabulous blogs for S'mores desserts. Ice cream, cookies, pies. Man, there are some good ones out there. 


I had all of the ingredients for these bars and with a house guest this weekend I thought it was the perfect time to try it out.  Let me tell you these things are DELISH!  They taste just like a S'mores. And if you like the mess of a S'mores they even leave your fingers sticky and mouth with marshmallow strings.  I already had requests for a remake.

If you don't have plans to go camping anytime soon. These bars will certainly meet your S'mores craving.

  10. We loved these! I made the mistake, though, of trying to stir a few marshmallows into the batter which made it extra sticky / gooey but they were SO YUMMY! They were gone by the next day. :)
