S'mores Bars

This week my in-laws came over for dinner - they were in need of a "grandbaby fix".  (I have been told that being a grandparent is the best.)  Since I knew that we would be getting take-out for dinner I felt that dessert should be homemade.  I decided to go with Ex-Blogger A's recipe for S'mores Bars.  I have made this recipe both the original way and gluten free.  Either way it is a easy yet super awesome dessert!

S'mores Bars

1/2 cup butter (one whole stick)
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs ***if you are making this with gluten free graham crackers I feel like you will need 2 cups.***
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (L and I were in a chocolate kind of a mood today, so we used 1 1/2 cups)
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  While oven is preheating, cut butter into chunks and place them in 9x13" baking pan.  Place pan into oven until butter is melted.

Once butter is melted, take pan out of oven and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over the melted butter. Evenly sprinkle chocolate chips over crumbs.  Then evenly pour sweetened condensed milk over the chips and crumbs.  And place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.  (The condensed milk will get all bubbly on the sides of the pan but have no fear.)

Remove pan from oven and evenly sprinkle marshmallows   Return to oven for 2-5 more minutes.  ***At this point I turn my broiler on and carefully let the marshmallows brown.  But that is just our personal preference***

Allow bars to completely cool before you cut them with a sharp knife.  (I know that is a hard step but they will not cut right unless the bars are totally cooled.)  Then enjoy the gooey chocolaty,  marshmellow-y, carmel-y goodness!


  1. Stop it right now! I lost 2 pounds last week and now I am going to go make those and gain it back. Ha ha. They look yummy!! I might make them this weekend for friends coming over.

  2. Yum! Your picture looks like it came out of a magazine!

  3. Oh my these look wonderful and the best thing is that I have everything to make them right now! I think we are having dessert with dinner tonight. :)

  4. Ooooh this is so different from my smores bar recipe - sweetened condensed milk? I am intrigued! My children thank you - since they'll be surprised to come home to this today :)
