S'more Bar Verdict

I made S'more Bars for dessert last night:

Please excuse the picture from my phone.  We will pretend like I don't have a nice camera that takes much better pictures.  I can't email pictures from my camera.  Email is good!

These S'more Bars were good too.  Really good.  I over cooked them a bit because I sort of forgot to set the timer.  I have a fancy KitchenAid timer that requires one too many steps to set.  The extra step is the one I always forget.  It is also the one that actually STARTS the timer.  So they were a little harder than they were supposed to be.

I also completely forgot to add the vanilla.  That is what happens when you are trying to hurry and get them in the oven so you can get ready for church.  It also doesn't help that I was reading the recipe off my phone.

I blame my phone for these S'more Bars.

But even being over cooked and vanilla-less, they were YUMMY!  There aren't any left unless you count the edges that were way over cooked.  Those I fed to the garbage.

We will definitely make them again and hopefully I will be able to give you a review of the bar they way they are supposed to be, but I feel pretty safe telling you that if you like S'mores you need to make a batch of these.

Some suggestions:

Do not try to make these in a 9x13 pan.  There was barely enough for a 9x9.  Next time I will stick with the 9x9 and probably increase the recipe by 50%.  That will be a little too much, but the graham cracker crumb mixture is better than cookie dough.  We won't discuss how I know.

When layering them, but the marshmallow creme down and then the chocolate bars.  It is easier to flatten the second layer of mixture over the bars than it is the marshmallow creme.  I think next time I might roll it out with a rolling pin and then move it over like a pie crust.  That move might require the help of parchment paper.

And speaking of parchment, instead of greasing the pan, I always use parchment.  It works perfectly and makes cleanup super easy!

Now go and make some.  And if you have tried them, let me know what you thought.

I made these yesterday, too. I used an 8x8 pan and that was the perfect size. Cut into 9 bars, they were the perfect size, too. I didn't want to buy marshmallow creme, since I had mini marshmallows. So I just sprinkled those on top of the chocolate so that it was completely covered. Then I took scoops of the dough, flattened them out in my hands and laid them on top of the marshmallows. Easy to cover up the marshmallows that way, and when they bake the dough expands, so any gaps are taken care of. So easy and soooo yuuuummmmmmyyyy!!!

I totally tried these friday night--awesome! I think it was like 24 hours from you posting the link or something--too delicious-looking to let the idea just sit there. I did the smoosh a ball flat and lay it on top and then mush all the edges together technique for my top, too.
