Amanda and I have hoped that you enjoyed the fun S’mores recipes that we shared this week. We have always had a blast sharing these recipes. I an’t believe it was already our 5th year doing it.

I wanted to really go all out this year with fun things like S’mores Monkey Bread, the Boozy S’mores Milkshake I shared yesterday and I wanted to end the week with a bang! So I decided to hit the scales hard with a fun combination of elements to make this crazy treat.

Let’s go… Chocolate chip cookies! Nutella! Marshmallow! Ice Cream!

S’mores Cocktail

Smores Cocktail

It’s the last day of our S’mores Week!

It is time to celebrate with a cocktail!

Smores Cocktail-1

As soon as Amanda and I decided to do our S’mores Week I knew I wanted to make a cocktail. They are just so much fun and I love any excuse to experiment with drinks!

I created the cocktail around the 3 s’mores flavors: marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker.

Smores Cocktail-2

I knew that there are chocolate liqueurs out there so that is what I started with. Then I found a marshmallow vodka. So those would be my focus on the cocktail. I would rim the glass with graham crackers.

This cocktail is a great excuse to buy a kitchen torch as well. So fun to toast up at marshmallow as a garnish.

Baked S’mores Bars

Baked S'mores Bars

So I don’t really like S’mores.

Don’t hate me!!!!

Baked S'mores Bars-01

I could never understand why people liked s’mores when I was growing up. Sure I ate them as I just didn’t want to be that kid but I just didn’t get what they liked. Crisp crackery cookie. Hard chocolate. Marshmallow. And another crisp cookie. I love toasting marshmallows but the rest of it didn’t really work for me over time.

Also, I like graham cracker but I like the Honey Maid Grahams Cinnamon Crackers the best. They are sugary and extra cinnamon-y… but do you think they were ever brought along for camp fires… that would be a n-o. I always felt there was so much potential for s’mores but I didn’t know what it was… until now that is!

Baked S'mores Bars-02

I saw that Amanda recently posted a recipe for baked s’mores. The moment I saw them I knew that I had to make them. HAD TO! This was exactly what I have always been hoping for from a s’more. A soft, crumbly texture instead of a crisp cookie. Ooey gooey melted chocolate. Tons of marshmallow goodness. It was all the great flavors of a s’more but in the texture of a blondie. I could stand behind that.

These were so simple to whip up that you can make these for yourself or for your kids when they are dying to a s’more but you aren’t camping.

I used Hershey bars for this but if you didn’t have them on hand and really really wanted these bars then just used chocolate chips. Milk chocolate chips would be better than semi-sweet chocolate chips but chocolate is chocolate so get on with your bad self and make these dang Baked S’mores Bars!!!

I’ve made these several times now and I have to say that the more fluff the better! Make sure you at least use 2 Cups. But if you want to use a bit more, you won’t be mad.

The top will crack when you bake it but it’s okay. I swear. It’s doesn’t have to be super pretty like a cheesecake, but keep this in mind. If you are really upset about cracks then poke the top with a tooth pick a few times before baking to help reduce the cracking.

I do think it would be pretty cool to make these with some winter time indoor camping. Oh so you didn’t do indoor camping growing up? What about bring a pool (no water) into the house to watch the movie Mermaids with your mom? No… just me then. Well, I suggest you give it a try and sing and dance along to this song.

Baked S'mores Bars-03

I think you should totally have an indoors camping adventure!! It will put you in a good mood. I swear. Just like I swear that you have to make these s’mores bars!

When it comes to making these Baked S’mores Bars… be prepared to eat a lot of them.

Baked S'mores Bars-04

Baked S’mores Bars

Serves 16

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • approx. 10 oz of Hershey’s chocolate bars ( I used 6 1.55oz bars)
  • 2 cups marshmallow fluff

Process

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and spray with cooking oil (optional).
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla until incorporated.
  3. Sift together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter mixture and mix at a low speed until just combined.
  4. Divide dough in half. Press one half into an even layer on the bottom of prepared pan. Evenly arrange the chocolate bars on top of the dough.
  5. Spread marshmallow fluff evenly over the chocolate layer. Or put into a large plastic storage bag, cut the tip off & pipe on for easy distribution.
  6. On a floured surface, roll out the remaining dough, forming a piece that is just large enough to fit in the 8×8-inch pan. Place dough on top of marshmallow fluff and press down slightly.
  7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown. Cool slightly before cutting with a sharp knife into 16 even pieces. Wipe knife between cuts w a wet towel to make the process easier.
