To-Die-For S'mores Bars!

By Ellery Adams

Now you don't need a campfire to make s'mores! My little one, Sophie, took a cooking class last week and came home with this recipe. After making it for our family, I knew I had to share it with you. So easy, so delicious, so tempting that you can serve it at your July 4th cookout or next camping venture.


Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk-chocolate chips
2 cups mini marshmallows

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the butter in 8-inch-square baking pan and let melt. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over the melted butter. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crumbs. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the milk and marshmallows over the chips. Use your fingers to gently press down the marshmallows. Put the pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Cool, cut into squares, and devour!

What recipe do you remember making with your mom or grandmother?

Tell your Sophie that this sounds delish and I will be making it for my teen and tween very soon. She is adorable btw.

Hard butter. Julia Child would have loved it.

And, separately, jello w/ fruit.

Sounds great! I never did bake with my mother or grandmother that I can remember though.

I love this recipe! It looks so easy, thank you for sharing it.

My mom and grandmother cooked two different ways. Mostly, my mom taught me to bake. My grandmother? Rice, beans, plantains...

All good.

German potato salad. I still can't get mine to come out as good as hers.

Sounds wonderful and something my 6 grandchildren would enjoy. Just finished A Deadly Cliche and read the preview for the Last Word....December?????I love series, love them. But I do not like to wait for the next one when I am enjoying the characters so much!

I just wanted to say thank you to you and Sophie for sharing this recipe. I used it for inspiration - instead substituting a graham cracker pie crust and increasing the amount of the remaining ingredients. It's so simple that it takes less than five minutes to prepare and zero utensils. That's a huge blessing for a non-cook like me. It's been a huge hit every time I've made it these past two years, especially with the kiddos. Thanks so much! ~ Lisa
