S’mores Bars

Like mentioned, I made two desserts to bring to work for my last day.

Since I made two, there had to be one I liked better than the other right?

Right.

So I’m putting up the one I liked but didn’t love.

[Recipe from Chocolate and Carrots]

S’mores Bars

Ingredients:

  • 16 sheets of graham crackers
  • 25 big marshmallows
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Preparation:

  1. Spray cooking spray in an 8 –inch pan.
  2. In a food processor, crush the graham crackers completely.
  3. In a large bowl, combine marshmallows and butter. Microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring in between until completely melted.
  4. Put in melted mixture in the food processor with the graham crackers and grind until blended.
  5. Knead in the chocolate chips and push into pan.
  6. Place into the refrigerator until hardened and cut into squares.

Reason I was not a big fan of this recipe is because it was hard to work with. Everyone knows when marshmallows are melted, you have to work fast, else everything will be super sticky and hard. Lesson learned.

Plus on top of that, it was so hard to cut!

Just look at it … it doesn’t look that appetizing to me. And I didn’t have the layers like Caroline did in the previous picture. All in all it was a fail.

When it came time to eat it, it was very chewy and for some, it felt hard because they didn’t have teeth of a teenager anymore. Whoops. Really need to think of your audience before making something. Lesson learned.

If I ever make this again, I might just use less marshmallows so it’s not as hard so it’s more of a cookie texture and less of a bar of chewiness.

But don’t get me wrong. It really was tasty. I’m just a hard critic when it comes to my own foods.
