More On S’Mores! Indoor S’mores

We just can’t get enough of the fire pit and playing in the backyard after dark. 
Such a small pleasure but it’s what childhood memories are made out of.
After one of the mischevious lovelies above
got into my stash of Ghiardelli Chocolate and Caramel squares that were intended for adult s’mores making, we got creative and used these instead:
Combined with the Favorite Chocolate Wafers and a roasted marshmallow this has quickly become the new fave of adults ’round these parts!  I resisted eating this baby until the chocolate was properly melted and let me tell you – it was divine!

After tempting all of you with yummy s’mores combinations, I heard back from some readers and friends that they *sadly* have no place to roast marshmallows around an outdoor fire.  So here you go, my poor darlings, some alternatives for you so you won’t miss out on the all-American treat this summer!

S’mores Bars
2 C graham cracker crumbs
1/3 C sugar
1/4 t salt
1 stick (1/2 C) unsalted butter, melted
1 lb. milk chocolate
2 C mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine crumbs, sugar, salt and butter.  Press crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9×13″ baking dish; bake 12 minutes or until golden brown and let cool on a rack.  Melt chocolate in microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring in between.  Pour melted chocolate over crust, spreading evenly.  Sprinkle marshmallows over chocolate; press lightly.  Broil under preheated broiler for about 30 seconds or until the marshmallows are golden.  Allow to cool on countertop for 1 hour; refrigerate until chocolate is set, 30 minutes-1 hour.  Cut into squares. 

Here are some more s’mores inspirations that you can make in your kitchen.

Bakerella’s Marshmallow-stuffed graham cracker and chocolate cupcakes

Betty Crocker’s Golden Graham Indoor S’mores 
(I remember making these as a kid – the recipe must have been on the cereal box!)
This looks super easy and if I show my kids this photo they’ll want it for their birthdays!  You can use Keebler’s chocolate covered graham cookies for the center layer and for garnish.  Mmmmmmmmm.
