One of my favorite treats ever is a classic S’more with the marshmallow cooked to perfection over a roaring campfire and the chocolate melted just right. I think there possibly is nothing better. It is such a great combination in texture and flavor. A few weeks ago my son had an Boy Scout court of honor that he needed to bring a treat to. I thought what better treat to celebrate the Scout’s than S’mores, but there would be no campfire. So, I developed this recipe from a few that I had found to make my own, gloriously delicious ooey gooey good S’more Bars.
For this recipe I ventured out and made homemade marshmallow fluff which is super yummy. This version does not use gelatin. If you are not feeling so adventurous to make your own you can buy a jar of all ready made marshmallow fluff to spread over the top. To make the S’more bars more like an actual S’more, place the pan under the broiler for a minute or two to give it a campfire kissed look. Watch it carefully so you don’t burn it totally.
When making the marshmallow fluff, you will need a candy thermometer. Make sure that it reads the temperature accurately before you begin. You can do this by bringing a pot of water to boil and make sure it reads 212° F or 100° C. Then you will know that when the marshmallow mixture reaches the 240° mark that your fluff will turn out perfectly.
I hope you enjoy this fabulous recipe. Please check out some of my other dessert recipes
