I really like S’mores. I think they are delicious in every form. But this post is dedicated to my friend Abbi. As much as I love the chocolaty graham treat…this girl basically lives for a S’more. She is a healthy eater…so she is not going to waste her sugar intake on just anything. But you say S’mores and she is always game. One summer, Abbi and her family decided to stock up on the Edy’s Limited Edition Summer S’mores Ice Cream, 60 quarts of ice cream. That’s love.
But more importantly than Abbi’s love for S’mores…this recipe is dedicated to her because it is easily the most simple and delicious recipe. Abbi likes to call herself a “baker in training”. She likes to bake…but she sticks with the slice and bake cookies and box cake. This recipe is about to change all of that. It is made for a baker in training, and can be done in one bowl. No real mess, and no real way to mess it up. So no matter how good or bad your kitchen skills are…you are going to be happy with the results.
Itty Bitty Campfire Bars
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 10 full-size graham crackers, roughly chopped
- 2 heaping cups of mini marshmallows
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with non stick spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.
- In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter about 1 minute on high power.
- Add brown sugar and mix until just incorporated.
- Add eggs, vanilla and whisk until smooth.
- Add flour and stir until just combined. DO NOT over mix.
- Give the graham crackers a good rough chop and add them to the mix. Make sure you get all the bits left over on the board. (Or you can do what I do and just crush them in the package they come in and dump the whole thing in.)
- Fold in marshmallows and chocolate chips. Make sure all of the marshmallows are covered with batter.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges have turned a golden brown.
- Allow bars to cool before cutting.
