MakeThese Smores Bars!

Our block was having a block party Saturday night and I wanted something new to bring. Luckily I have the finding wonderful recipes gift. I found this one on two different blogs - here, and here. I'm no dummy and knew this Smores Bars recipe would be a big hit. The original recipe was for a 8"x 8" square pan, but i wanted more for the party so I doubled everything and made it in a "9 x 13" pan. So this recipe is now adapted to "9 x 13" forever and ever. They are so delicious that you will want to make as many as possible!


1 Cup butter at room temperature (2 sticks)
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 king sized (4.4 0z) milk chocolate bars (like Hershey's - found in the candy isle)
2 7oz containers of marshmallow creme (NOT melted marshmallows)

Preheat oven to 350.  Butter 9"x13" pan.

Cream sugars and butter together until light. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl wisk together flour, crumbs, baking powder, and salt.  Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.


The dough will be the texture of cookie dough. Divide dough in half and press half into an even layer in the prepared pan.

Lay the chocolate bars over the dough.  I didn't use half of the fourth candy bar - although it could have been squeezed in somewhere!

Spread the marshmallow creme over the candy bars.  I didn't use quite all of the creme either, but it wouldn't hurt to use it all.

Spread remaining dough over the marshmallow creme layer.  This is best done by flattening the dough into little tiles and laying down over the creme.  Don't worry about getting it perfect.

Place in the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely before you cut.

They looked gorgeous right out of the oven. They were not completely cool when I cut them because I couldn't wait any longer.  This was after 3 or 4 hours - still very soft on the inside.



They are best when eaten the same day - while the filling is still soft - but believe me they are still delicious the next day. If you should happen to have any left over, they can tolerate 10-15 seconds in the microwave if you want to soften the chocolate for breakfast snacks the next day.

I know this because I saved some for me and didn't take all of them to the party.  Good thing I did because people were crazy for them and they disappeared early in the evening. 

Make these!  People will love you!

Make something wonderful today!
