S’mores Bars with Bethany

March 2015

 

This year, Bethany is making bars once a month.  In March she made Easy S’mores Bars.  She made them once, then she made them again and within a couple of weeks, she made them again.  Our friend, Marilyn loves these bars and says she could eat the entire pan.  She never gets the chance because just about everyone seems to love them.

 

Here is the recipe

 

Easy S’mores Bars

 

Easy S’mores Bars

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips (18 oz)
  • 4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  1. Heat oven to 375°F and line a 13×9 inch pan with foil.
  2. In large bowl, stir the cookie mix and graham cracker crumbs  together. Then stir in melted butter until soft dough forms.
  3. Press the dough evenly into your foil lined 13×9 inch pan.
  4. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until set, I made sure it passed the toothpick test. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Let stand for a few minutes until chocolate begins to melt. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over crust.
  5. Sprinkle marshmallows over melted chocolate. Broil on the center rack of your oven until marshmallows are puffed and toasted to a golden brown. Watch closely because the marshmallows will brown quickly, it can take less than a minute.   Cool a minimum of 10 minutes. Carefully remove from the pan using the foil.  Cut into bars using a knife sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.   They are best served warm but are still excellent at room temp. Store any remaining bars tightly covered.  Makes 12-16 bars.

 

Adapted from Betty Crocker’s Grand Prize Winning recipe for 2006.  I can totally see why it won!

 

 

I have started to copy recipes either onto my blog or into an Open Office document because people are removing their recipes from their blogs or are forgetting to renew their blog or moving to a new location.  I have lost so many great recipes.  Now I won’t lose this one, or at least I don’t plan on losing it.  If you want better pictures, feel free to go to her blog, but you won’t get to see Bethany working her magic and embellishing a few ingredients.  🙂

 

I don’t have pictures of her making the crust, but here she is adding the chocolate.  We did not have any milk chocolate chips, but we did have Hershey bars, so she broke up what we had left and used those.

When we realized we did not have enough chocolate bars, we found some Heath baking pieces in the cabinet and added a half bag of those.  Abigail, Elianna and Levi are watching her closely.

Here it is after it came out of the oven.  Next time we will cover it with more chocolaty goodness.

Elianna and Levi think we should have added more.

After they were browned on top.  The one bad thing about a gas oven is that it does not really brown things evenly.  We needed to be a little more attentive and move the pan around more in order to get a more even tan on the top of the bars.

I hope you take the time to make these special treat.  Here is our list of changes.

  1.  More chocolate
  2.  More marshmallows
  3.  Make 2 pans to start with.

Enjoy

 

Bethany and Susan
