Smores are such a guilty pleasure of mine! I mean what’s not to love about marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers coming together in perfect harmony?
And what better excuse to make my favorite Smores dessert than National Smores Day?!
These treats are a great way to get the Smores campfire taste sans campfire. This delightful chocolatey, marshmallowy, graham crackery dessert is perfect to bring to outdoor gatherings or football game tailgates. Trust me, they’ll be sure to be a hit and gone quickly.
I originally used this recipe from Rachel Schulz post on Baked Smores Bars and have since then made a couple adjustments based on my own personal preferences.
How could you not make these delightful treats after looking at these pictures?!
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Delight Baking dark chocolate bars
1 1/2 cups Ricemellow creme
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg together.
Mix the flour, graham cracker, salt, and baking powder.
Combine the two mixes.
Then split the crust into two. Put a layer of the crust down, then the marshmallow cream on top. Place the the 2 Delight baking bars on top. Then, use the remaining crust and smooth on top.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until there is a golden brown.
The hard part is waiting for them to cool before cutting into this mouthwatering smores dessert. The aroma from the oven makes you want to take it out immediately and get it into your mouth. However, try to control yourself so that it cools properly before cutting into, or marshmallows will be everywhere (yes, I’m speaking from experience.) If it’s just staying in your kitchen, it won’t be as much of a problem but if you are bringing separate bars to an event, make sure it cools long enough!
Now, get to baking! You’ll immediately want smores of these treats! <- See what I did there?
