Sweet & Sticky S’more Bars – Great addition to your holiday dessert!

30 Nov

I love s’mores and only have them once in awhile or when Erin comes over; that usually involves them in the microwave!

These bars are a great addition to any cookie swap party and they are super fast to make!

Ingredients:

2 cups Graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
16 oz. Semi sweet chocolate
4 cups mini marshmallows

Blend together first 4 ingredients; set aside one cup. Press remaining mixture in an ungreased 13″x9″ baking dish and bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden; let cool.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler and spread over cooled crust. Layer on marshmallows, pressing gently into warm chocolate; top with one cup reserved Graham cracker mixture.
Broil 2 inches from heat source until marshmallows are lightly golden; cool and cut into squares.

Makes 1-1/2 dozen.
