S’more Bars

Once school starts, it can be hard for kids to let go of summer. These great-tasting bars will bring back sweet campfire memories—whether the treats are served for dessert or as an after-school snack. —Lisa DiPrima, Wilton, New Hampshire

    This recipe is decadent - I used 1 cup flour and 1 cup graham cracker crumbs and only needed 5 chocolate bars baked 25 min and wow these yummy bars

    34g carbohydrate (24g sugars) per tiny bar is not diabetic! If someone could explain how these rate a diabetic label I would love to hear the argument !

    Tried the recipe last night, as it is and I'm disappointed. I am a fairly experienced baker. Instead of s'mores cookie bar I have a gooie mix of marshmallows and chocolate. Looks more like a messy dump cake. Too bad since I loove s'mores and was really looking forward to them. If anyone can shine some light I would appreciate it.

    I followed the recipe exactly as written and they did not come out well. The crumb topping was too loose, did not stick to the marshmellow and the flour was all you coukd taste. It was terrible. I made these for a picnic and i ended up throwing them away. I'm an avid baker and have made many bar recipes and these are just awful.

    I thought these bars were really good! They were fairly easy to put together, the hardest part was putting the dough into the pan without it sticking all over your hands. Using chocolate bars made assembly easier, the fluff was obviously sticky but when they were cut into bars, it wasn't as messy as I thought they would be. I plan on making these again.

    These turned out delicious. I didn't have milk chocolate candy bars but I did have a package of Dove milk chocolate Promises. I opened them up and laid them side by side to cover the pressed crust layer. These bars are very simple to throw together. They taste like s'mores but aren't as messy to eat.

    I love this recipe, make it at least 6 times a year. I double the recipe and put it in a 10x13 pan, use a 12oz bag of chocolate chips, and enough small marshmallows to cover the chocolate. They turn out awesome, and are always a hit, and most requested.

    I just made this recipe and incorporated many suggestions..... One key to melt the marshmallow creme to make prep easier- was great!! Will always do in future use of recipes using marshmallow creme; truly an awesome tip!! Also used more graham cracker crumbs and much less flour and made a thinner crust. Then after laying crust sprinkled with additional graham cracker crumbs and also a sprinkling at the end. Great recipe, a s'more in a simple bar! Taste is delicious!!
