S’mores are probably one of the most special desserts I know of. After all, you have to make sure you have fire, and you need an occasion- maybe a bonfire, or a fire pit… well, that is, until these bars came along. They are so easy to make that it may mean s’mores on a very regular basis. As in every week. Or maybe two days in a row.
Or maybe every day in a row.
Once again, this recipe will be featuring Duncan Hines Frosting Creations… this time, I will be using half a can of Frosting Creations Frosting Starter with a full packet of Chocolate Marshmallow Flavor Mix. The Chocolate Marshmallow was just begging for a S’more-style dessert, so I whipped one up.
This is super easy. You’re going to start by melting 3 tablespoons of butter and an entire bag of jumbo marshmallows in a saucepan on the stove.
Once they’ve melted fully and it’s a liquid, go ahead and remove from heat, then pour in 8 cups of graham cracker cereal. I used Golden Grahams. Once you’ve done that, pull out some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, and some hot chocolate marshmallows. (I freeze mine until right before this step, so they melt a little less). Stir them in quickly, then put your mixture into a greased 9×13 pan. Sprinkle these with another tablespoon of mini chocolate chips and another tablespoon of hot chocolate marshmallows (psssst… you can buy hot chocolate marshmallows on their own- Kraft’s Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits in Vanilla are PERFECT for this recipe!).
Now, put the whole pan in the fridge for 30 minutes, at least.
During this time, you’ll want to grab your Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Frosting Starter and Chocolate Marshmallow Flavor Mix. Scoop out half of the can into a bowl, and mix the entire packet of Chocolate Marshmallow Flavor Mix into it. I decided to use a half of a jar instead of a full jar, but still do the entire packet of mix, because a recipe like this doesn’t call for a large amount of frosting, but it does need frosting that packs a punch in flavor. Part of what I love about the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations is that it is so easy to customize. The full packet adds the concentration and punch it needed, without being overpowering.
Once you remove it from the fridge, glob the frosting on, and kind of spread it around a bit. Then, cut it into bars and serve. There you go- s’mores anytime!
Looks good, yeah?
