S’mores Bars

You know how certain desserts get popular and you just start to see them pop up everywhere? For example: cupcakes. I think there is a cupcakery on every single block in the city of Chicago. Donuts are another good example. For a long time it was just Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme. Not you see “trendy” donut shops popping up all over. For awhile, Nutella was all the rage. Nutella cheesecake, cookies, cupcakes, cake, ice cream, sandwiches. Nutella everything! Nutella is still popular but I think that Biscoff is making a move on Nutella. At least in my life, Biscoff is the new “it spread.” Well, this summer I have seen more s’mores inspired desserts than ever before.

Not that I’m complaining. My thighs on the other hand? Not so much.

In the past we have made many, many, many s’mores inspired desserts. But I just cannot get enough. Everyday I see more and more s’mores recipes pop up on Pinterest and the many blogs that I frequent. You can’t possibly resist them. I find s’mores very comforting. What is better than sitting around the campfire roasting wienies and cooking up s’mores.

Which reminds me of a kind of funny story. We had some people over for a bonfire a couple weeks ago and I picked up marshmallows, graham crackers, Hershey bars, and Reeses to make s’mores. I only forgot one thing. I did not remove the paper from the Reeses before making the s’mores sandwich. Whoops! You would think I would have learned my lesson after I did the same with the cheese on our hamburgers and grilled cheese. Gotta love me!

Here is what you’ll need

Combine the dry ingredients

Cream together the butter and sugars

Add the vanilla and the egg

Mix in the dry ingredients

Press the dough into the pan and add the chocolate layer. Remind yourself to finally invest in a square pan.

Spread the marshmallow creme over the chocolate layer

Place the remaining dough in a ziploc bag and roll it out to the size of your pan

Cut down the sides of the bag and place the dough over the marshmallow layer. Bake for 35 minutes.

No worries. I remembered to take the wrapper off of the chocolate this time!
