Can I have S’more bark?

 Up until Saturday my cupboards had been treat-free, so I needed to do some Christmas baking ASAP. I went over to my mother-in-laws for our second year of Christmas baking. I love any and all sorts of baking so I had to get my fix! Cookies, squares, cakes….the list goes on. However I must have been M.I.A when God was handing out women’s chocolate addictions because I never got that trait. But in saying that…. I could never give up chocolate milk, Reese peanut butter cups or S’mores. Speaking of those few ingredients check out the tasty combination I discovered this summer while camping.

Anyways, when we were searching through recipes on the weekend I did a double take when I saw S’more bark. Ummmm…..why wasn’t I informed when this delectable treat was created?! Usually I make white chocolate peppermint bark but this took top priority this year. So, I had to share it with you since it’s so easy to make, only has three ingredients and is heavenly! I hope you like it!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers (I used dark chocolate)
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped graham crackers (crumbling them in your hands is much easier)
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows

Directions

1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Mix the chopped graham crackers and marshmallows in a small bowl.

2. Place the chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted stirring every 45 seconds. Stir until free of lumps. Let cool a couple of minutes.

3. Pour half of the marshmallow and graham cracker mixture into the bowl of chocolate and evenly coat.

4. Spread the chocolate mixture onto the baking sheet and smooth into even layer. Sprinkle the remaining graham crackers chunks and marshmallows on top and press gently into chocolate.

5. Refrigerate (or use nature’s fridge on your patio) for about 30 minutes. Once the chocolate is firm, break into small pieces. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Now wasn’t that toooo easy?! If you don’t want to use the microwave then make your own double-broiler like I did. Just fill a medium-sized pot 1/4 full of water, place a metal bowl overtop and once the water comes to a boil, turn the temperate down to low and add your chocolate. Stir until melted and free of lumps. I hope you like this recipe as much as I do. Hey, nothing beats a campfire S’more but once the snow starts falling you gotta improvise!

The S’more the Merrier!
