I recently made these s’more bars for my friend Jen’s going away party. Jen is embarking on an adventure in which she is moving to Costa Rica to be the director of a school. How cool is that? She was really supposed to teach kindergarteners, but got bumped up to DIRECTOR mere weeks before her departure. Hmm, I used to teach kindergarten…wonder if I could direct a school, too? Anyway, I am super happy for Jen but we must get back to the subject at hand. Wonderful, warm, gooey, graham cracker, milk chocolate, marshmallow goodness.
Jen is a fellow foodie & loves all the things that I bake/cook so that earns her mega brownie points in my book. I knew I needed to pull out the big guns on this one, especially since I was coming off the high of the success of my salted samoa bars a few weeks prior. Luckily, these s’more bars were a huge hit! I served these a few hours after taking them out of the oven and was amazed at how the chocolate remained melted & the inside was deliciously gooey. Satisfy your s’more craving sans campfire & make these soon!
Just like your favorite campfire dessert but this time soft & chewy, too!
