If my monthly cupcake posts haven’t already given it away, it’s no secret that I have a total sweet tooth. I am constantly scanning Pinterest for new goodies to create in the kitchen. Over Memorial Day weekend, J’s family got together out at their cabin on the lake, and I wanted something new to bring to share. I didn’t leave myself much prep time, so these quick and easy S’mores Bars caught my eye. They are basically amped up rice krispie treats – marshmallow-y, chocolate-y, graham cracker-y goodness! All of the yumminess of a s’more without the mess!
With just a few, basic ingredients I was able to whip these bars up in no time, AND I didn’t even have to turn on the oven (a big plus for summertime). I ended up using about half the amount of chocolate chips the recipe called for, and I’m glad I made that decision. I think the full serving would have been too overpowering. My bars didn’t end up looking much like the demo picture, but they were delicious nonetheless. The bars were a hit with the family, so I’m certain that I’ll be making these a few more times this summer :)
