As a child, I never liked s’mores. I attribute it to the fact that I mostly only liked white chocolate back then (what the heck was wrong with me?). My love of white chocolate was long ago traded in for a love of dark chocolate, and I still laugh when I think about how adamant childhood me was in saying that I did not like chocolate (unless it was a Reese’s cup). See, even kids like me can grow up to appreciate good food. I’m sure I’d love them now – with homemade grahams and a really dark chocolate bar.
Given my previous dislike of s’mores, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed these. Like I mentioned in my Big Summer Potluck recap, we were surrounded by delicious food the entire weekend. There was something addictive about these little bars, and Eric and I had more than our fair share of them. These are kicked up crispy treats with all the flavors of s’mores in a convenient little bar, no campfire needed. The graham crackers are baked in melted butter and sugar and then a layer of dark chocolate is spread over them. The chocolate binds the rice cereal to the crust, and extra marshmallows and chunks of chocolate add the finishing touch. If you’re looking for a simple dessert or after school snack, these are perfect. They’re just sweet enough to satisfy, and the recipes makes more than enough to share.
