Since I am currently unemployed, I have been kind of trying to clean things out. Well, I have all of these marshmallows that I bought to make marshmallow fondant with before I decided I liked this recipe better. Ok, so they are close to a year old. I opened them up to see if they were still good, and first package – all stuck together. The second package, was still great though. So what do you do with excess marshmallows? Make s’mores of course! Only these a miniatures, so I couldn’t exactly skewer them, so I decided to make s’more bars. Warning – I have another bag, so marshmallows to come. What would you do with them?
I guess I have always been food obsessed because when I started thinking s’more bars, I thought about a recipe I had seen but never tried years ago. It was one of those recipes that has you thinking, “I wonder if that would really work.” I remembered it had been in an old cookbook. I was thinking Southern Living, which is published by Oxmoor House, and I know their recipes are usually on My Recipes, so I went there. Well, it wasn’t Southern Living, but it was from an old Oxmoor House cookbook, from 1985. I am pretty sure remembering recipes I have never tried from 1985 is probably some sort of disorder – especially since I was a teenager then. But, I made them without the pecans and with milk chocolate mini kisses instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and then topped them with marshmallows and broiled them until toasty, and not only do they work, they really do taste like s’mores! Hope you enjoy!
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips (I used Hershey’s Mini Kisses.)
- 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
- miniature marshmallows to cover (about a cup)
- Line a 8″ x 8″ baking pan with parchment and grease the parchment.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Stir together graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk until well combined.
- Spread into prepared pan.
- Bake approximately 30 minutes or until set and golden.
- Put marshmallows on top of bars and place back in the oven. Turn on the broiler and broil until marshmallows are toasted. Be sure to watch this carefully as you don’t want to burn the marshmallows or catch the parchment on fire.
- Cool completely in pan before cutting.
