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!

Course Dessert


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup  all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 Hershey bars
  • 1 cup marshmallow crème


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and graham cracker crumbs. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and the vanilla. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients. Grease an 8 inch square or circular pan. Press half of the dough into the bottom of the pan. Layer with the chocolate bars. You can break them into smaller pieces so that they cover the graham cracker layer. Spread the marshmallow cream over the chocolate. Place the remaining dough into a ziploc gab and flatten it into the approximate size of your pan. Cut along 2 edges of the bag and open it up. Flip the dough over the marshmallow layer. Make any adjustments so that the top graham cracker layer completely covers the marshmallow layer. Bake for 35 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 2 hours.
