S'mores are one of those iconic foods that make me feel like I'm ten years old, it's summer and everything is right with the world. We used to have these every time we'd spend the day at the beach and finish the evening off with a bonfire. Corona del Mar. Southern California. My Dad, Mom, and my sisters. Some of our neighbors. The perfect sunny Socal beach weather. The glow of the warm fire as the sun set. I think what I loved most about these times, honestly, was the pure joy I saw in my Mama's face as we sat around the fire and she soaked up the last of our perfect day. So yeah, S'mores have some fairly significant associations for me! I mean, how many foods can pull all those heart strings for heavens sake!!! I still love to make them around a fire pit. Nothing better! But, to extend those memories and enjoy them as the weather cools and we're in doors more, I turn to making these incredible S'mores Bars!
This recipe gets it just perfect, in my humble opinion. The perfect ratio of graham cracker to chocolate to marshmallowy yumminess! Btw-in case you were worried, I want to tell you that there is more marshmallow goo hidden underneath the graham topping! Some of the other recipes I've seen out in the blogiverse don't have as much chocolate in them. When I've made them with less they just don't taste right. Remember this is milk chocolate so it's not as intense as semi sweet or dark. For me, it's gotta be milk chocolate and it's gotta have the proper amount to replicate the taste of the camp fire original!
This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.
