Irresistible Baked Smores Bars

I love smores and I think they’re a quintessential summer dessert.  They’re perfectly American, making them third on my list of thirty recipes to make this Fourth of July. They’re the best with marshmallows roasted on an open fire in the backyard but if you want to skip the campfire and still get that one of a kind smores flavor, I’ve got the recipe for you today! The stars of the show are marshmallow creme and Hershey’s bars. DSC_0743

They’re gooey, chocolatey and irresistible (and really, really easy to make.)


What to buy:

  • ½ cup butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ⅓ cups flour
  • ¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 Hershey bars
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow fluff

What to do:

  • preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9 x 9 baking dish
  • cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg, and vanilla, adding flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt
  • spread half of dough into pan and lay chocolate bars evenly on top
  • spread marshmallow fluff over chocolate and top with remaining dough (it’s ok if the marshmallow peeks through)
  • bake for 20-25, or until golden with marshmallow bubbling
  • serve warm or at room temperature (best if eaten within a couple days of baking)
