Not a big fan of s’mores? Neither was I. And now look where I am, blogging about s’more bars because they are AMAZING! This recipe was sent to me by my mother-in-law. It’s not her recipe, but she gets major brownie points (or s’more points) for putting me on to the trail of these wonderful bars!
I was a missionary when I first made these. I was having a rough time. I wanted to go home, I didn’t feel like being happy, and I was pretty miserable. These were a great pick me up when I needed it most! Good food can brighten your whole day, and that’s just what these do for me.
Seriously, I am still amazed how good these are. You need to try them. I almost ate the entire pan the first time I made these. They are arguably better the next day (though it can be hard to beat fresh out of the oven), but you’ll be lucky if there are any the next day to test it out.
My husband and I have to limit how often we make these just so we don’t gain 20 pounds a month. We have tried several variations on this recipe. My personal favorite was replacing the graham crackers in the dough with Biscoff cookies, and then using Hershey’s Gold Bars instead of chocolate chips. We’ve also tried Nutella in place of the chocolate. It was delicious!
Just a quick tip: if you’re struggling to spread the dough, or the marshmallow fluff, get your fingers just slightly wet (not dripping) and then pat the dough or marshmallow. You may have to get them wet several times, but if you do this your fingers won’t stick to the marshmallow as you spread it over the dough. It will make your life much easier!
The original recipe is from Sally’s Baking Addiction here. She has great recipes!

½ Cup Melted Butter
¾ Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs (1 sleeve of graham crackers mashed up)
½ Tsp Baking Powder
1 and ¼ Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Heaping Cup Marshmallow Fluff
Combine butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg. Add flour, graham cracker crumbs, and baking powder. Split the dough into thirds. Take two thirds of the dough and press it into a 9X9 pan (can be lined with aluminum foil first). Then take the marshmallow fluff and spread it evenly over the dough using your hands or whatever works. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the fluff. Now put the remaining dough on to the top of all of that. This can be done by pressing pieces between your hands and then laying them on top of the chocolate. It probably won’t look perfect, but it will be delicious either way! Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
