S'mores Bars

I starred this recipe for S'mores Bars by Stephanie a long time ago, and decided that last night's dinner with Jennifer, Brian, and Stella would be the perfect time to try it out!

I was kind of disappointed with it, though. I've seen it on several blogs and they always look so gooey and yummy... mine were too chewy and kind of weird. I used regular marshmallows instead of the Fluff, though, so maybe that negatively impacted it...?


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 (1.55 oz. each) HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Bars
  • 1 cup marshmallow creme (I used actual marshmallows.)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan.

2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Press half of dough into prepared pan.

3. Arrange chocolate bars over dough, breaking as needed to fit. Spread with marshmallow creme. Scatter bits of remaining dough over marshmallow; carefully press to form a layer.

4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. 16 bars.


  1. OKay - you've convinced me. I've been hearing so much talk about smores and these bars are my list to make this week. I need to cave to the craving :)

  2. I think if you tried again with the marshmallow creme you'd get the results you're looking for.

    There's something in the creme (more sugar? probably) that lets the creme fluff up while baking, and then stay soft after it cools -- marshmallows aren't so forgiving!

    They're delicious with creme -- worth another look, for sure!
