Tasty Tuesday: Indoor S'mores

The sun was shining here in the NW earlier this week. It made me long for warm days. So... I made s'mores. I tried out a delightful recipe for s'mores you can make without a campfire. These s'mores bars put smiles on a lot of faces.

One warning, they aren't for those lacking a sweet tooth. These are very rich. I have one son who doesn't love sweets (crazy, huh?) and it was too much for him. (But, then, regular s'mores are too rich for him, too.)

Everyone else enjoyed the sticky sweetness. I bet if you actually let them cool 15 minutes, they won't be this messy.

Indoor S'mores

20 whole (about 5 x 2 inches) honey graham crackers, divided
6 bars milk chocolate candy (I used Hersheys)
1 package (16 oz) miniature marshmallows, divided
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
3 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange a single layer of graham crackers to completely cover the bottom of a bar pan, breaking the crackers to fit. Toast in oven 2 minutes. Remove pan to a cooling rack.

Coarsely break remaining graham crackers into a bowl; set aside. Coarsely chop (or break) chocolate bars into pieces; set aside.

Combine 3 cups of the marshmallows, 3 tablespoons of the butter and milk. Microwave on high 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Add half of the chopped chocolate; stir until chocolate is completely melted.

Spread marsmallow mixture evenly over graham crackers.

Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter; toss with broken graham crackers. Add remaining marshmallows and chopped chocolate; toss lightly. Spoon evenly over mixture in pan.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly browned. Cool 15 minutes (if you can wait that long). Cut into bars. Serve warm or cool.

Yummy! I don't think I'd be able to wait 15 minutes for them to cool either.

I wish I'd added the ingredients to my shopping list! It's just started snowing (again) here - these would make a great treat on a wet, soggy day! (We had rain before the snow - it's yucky out there)
