This Summer has been a crazy one with work, and so many things going on My husband and I have not made time to go camping. I love going camping in the Summer time, seeing the camp fires, people gathered around just sitting back and enjoying the company of others. Then again if you are alone with your significant other just enjoying the peacefulness of the surroundings around you.
My favorite thing to do when I go camping is play games and tell ghost stories with others. Something about that moment you feel like a little kid again. My favorite past time is making s’mores . Now my husband is really not a big fan of marshmallows so he does not like to participate in making them, but I have to have them if I don’t then it just does not complete the experience of camping.
I wanted to make some S’mores but actually came across a brilliant idea to make S’mores Bars. I am so happy that I did because they turned out to be pure heaven.
Now when I made these and followed the instructions for baking time I have to admit I actually baked them longer because I had added more marshmallows then what the recipe called for. I could not resist I wanted those in there thinking that my bars would come out Fluffy, they came out of the oven more like gooey. I had to let them sit for at least an hour after I took them out of the oven so they could firm a little since it just was not happening right away. So word of advice Do not cut them into bars right away let them sit for awhile to cool completely before you attempt cutting them up.
It certainly was not hard to make, and one of those bars can just put you into what I call a Sugar Coma.
Eewy Gooey S’mores Bars
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows plus a few extra for the top
- 1 bag of mini Hershey bars broken in pieces
- Line a square baking pan with parchment paper. Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Place in bottom of prepared pan and press down to form a crust.
- Cream 1/2 cup softened butter, add in sugars and cream again till fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla. Mix again. Combine Flour, baking soda and salt, then add to butter mixture. Once all combined, fold in chocolate chips and marshmallows. Spoon Cookie dough on top of cookie crust as evenly as possible. Don’t worry about spreading perfectly. Dough will spread as it cooks to fill in any gaps. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes.
- While bars are cooking, break candy bar into sections and place in freezer. 8-10 minutes before bar is done cooking, sprinkle remaining marshmallows on top, just to decorate. Return to baking for remaining time. Remove pan from oven and carefully place broken candy bar pieces on top. Let cool completely before cutting.
