(Hopefully) new feature alert! One of my ongoing goals is to try new recipes and in doing so, I’d like to share them with you all.
Nothing is worse than trying a recipe that looks or sounds great, easy, etc. only to find that it, well, isn’t.
This weeks recipe? S’mores Bars!
Oh boy were these good.
I pinned this recipe ages ago and figured I’d probably never actually make it. But it sure looked nice among my other pins – cupcakes, cookies, etc.
Then it was time for a July 3rd BBQ (one of Matt’s coworkers throws the party every year). And it was hot out. Like, 100+ degrees hot, which meant that whatever I made had to withstand being outside for hours.
This recipe was originally pinned from the blog Wit & Whistle. Visit her site for the full recipe.
Time: from start to finish, probably about an hour. Most of that, though, is baking time. And then I had to be patient while my kitchen filled with the smell of these bars.
Ingredients: you’ll probably have the basics in the kitchen, but may need to get the s’mores parts – graham crackers, chocolate bars, and marshmallow fluff (in place of marshmallows)
Difficulty: pretty easy. the hardest part was spreading the super-sticky fluff and the graham cracker crust over it.
Changes: I doubled this recipe, since I was going to a large BBQ. If I made it for home I wouldn’t, only because I’d want to eat them all!
If I did it again I’d: use more fluff. I had 2 jars, but could’ve used 3 for a thicker marshmallow layer. I think I’d also put this in a large pan instead of 2 8×8 dishes. It was kind of hard to divide up the crust evenly.
Taste: Awesome! All I brought home from the party was the empty container. That’s always a good sign to me!
This is definitely a keeper in the recipe box!
