Welcome to Chocolate Candy Mall's monthly chocolate candy newsletter,
Charmingly Chocolate.
It's Fall already! The leaves are changing, the chill is in the air, and I picked up my first gallon of apple cider!



There are always special flavors and scents that I associate with each season of the year. The taste of S'mores is one of those flavors I always associate with Autumn campfires.


This S'mores bar recipe is a simple and quick way to make S'mores for everyone all at once and without the campfire. My sister-in-law, Laura, scouted this recipe out for me and passed it on. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


S'mores Bars Recipe

smores bars recipe Here's what you'll need:

  • 1/2 cup of butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp. of baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. of salt
  • 5 (1.55 oz each ) milk chocolate candy bars, Hershey's, of course!
  • 1 cup of marshmallow creme


Here's how to put it together:

  1. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well.

  2. In a second bowl, combine the flour, cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt; gradually add this dry mixture to the creamed mixture. Once mixed, set aside 1/2 cup to use later for the topping.

  3. Press the rest of the mixture into a greased 9 inch square baking pan to form a crust.

  4. Line the unwrapped candy bars across the crust and then spread the marshmallow cream on top.

  5. Finally, sprinkle that leftover graham cracker mixture over the top.

  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 350° oven until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack (I'm sure you'll remember that marshmallow can get pretty hot, so don't dive in too soon). Cut into bars and store in an airtight container if you aren't serving immediately or if by some strange phenomenon you have any left!

Depending on the size you slice them, you can get up to 18 squares per batch. If you cut them to that size, here's the nutritional facts: 1 bar equals 213 calories, 9g fat, (5g saturated fat) 28 mg cholesterol, 114 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3g protein.
