S'mores BarsS’Mores Bars are a cousin of the beloved S’mores summer time treat made over a campfire.   But some of us can’t wait for campfire weather so here is a version of the beloved S’mores that can be served as a S’Mores Bar cookie anytime the craving hits. Really easy, fast and delicious.

The individual S’Mores Bars can be warmed for about 10 seconds in a microwave to soften the chocolate if desired.

Graham cracker crumbs can be used as bought or graham crackers can be broken up and added to a processor to make crumb out to them.  Alternately, put them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.  Just be sure they are uniformly fine.

This is a kid friendly recipe that can be made with a bit of supervision for the minimal baking apart.

Note of Warning:  Do not try to eat these right out of the oven or if microwaved more than 10 seconds.  The marshmallow can melt, the chocolate can burn and the S’mores Bars become too hot to eat.
