Easy S'mores Bark

Hello hello! If you read my most recent Friday Favorites post that was a tribute to s'mores, you know that I had another s'mores recipe waiting in the wings, eagerly wanting to be shared with you...  Well, here it is! This is a fabulous, easy recipe that I promise you, you will love!

I made this for my frisbee teammate Madeleine's birthday last week. Last year for the team, I had made my s'mores cookies, and Madeleine really liked these cookies. So when deciding what to make for her birthday this year, I had the s'mores theme at the forefront of my mind. I had seen this s'mores bark over on Foodbuzz in the Daily Top 9 a few weeks ago, and this seemed to be the perfect occasion to try it out! The recipe is really quite simple. It would be a great one for kids to help make! It's from the blog, Amy's Cooking Adventures.


-8 graham crackers, broken into quarters
-12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate (I used chocolate chips, but you could use the 1 oz. squares of chocolate too)
-2 cups mini marshmallows
-1 Hershey bar (1.55 oz.), broken into 12 pieces


Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (must be foil - not wax paper or anything else!). Arrange all but two graham cracker quarters in a rectangle on the baking sheet. Melt the chocolate however you'd like (I microwaved my chips - you could use a double boiler too). After the chocolate is melted and smooth, spread it over the graham crackers, covering them completely and smoothing it with a spatula. If the chocolate goes over the edges or between the crackers a bit, no big deal! 

Next, quickly sprinkle the marshmallows over the chocolate. Put the tray in the fridge for 10 minutes or so to let the chocolate harden a little bit. Meanwhile, turn on the broiler in your oven. Remove the tray from the fridge and place it under the broiler. Leave the oven door open slightly the entire time it is cooking so that you can check on the roasty-toastyness (yes, that's a real term) of the marshmallows. They will roast quickly!! It will only need to broil for 1 or 2 minutes, most likely. When the marshmallows are lightly browned, remove the tray from the oven and quickly place the pieces of the Hershey bar into the marshmallows and chocolate. Crumble the remaining two quarters of graham crackers over top as well.

Return the tray to the fridge for an hour, or until the chocolate is hardened. Break the bark into pieces of your desired size with your hands. The pieces I broke off were uneven, which was totally okay. It was more fun that way actually! Refrigerate until ready to serve.

This was a big hit with our frisbee team! We gobbled up the s'mores bark in no time at all. I forgot to take my own pictures of the broken bark pieces, but a teammate snagged this pic:

A delicious, quick treat!

Enjoy your weekend, friends!
