History of S’mores

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s take a moment to appreciate the history of this iconic treat. The first recorded version of the recipe can be found in a 1927 publication of the Girl Scouts’ guidebook “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts”. The recipe was aptly named “Some More”. Over time, it was shortened to “S’more”, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Ingredients for Decadent and Irresistible S’mores Bars

Here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious bars:

  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 king-sized milk chocolate bars
  • 1 1/2 cups of marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)

Step-by-Step Instructions

Now that you have all your ingredients ready, let’s get started on the recipe:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Add to the butter mixture and mix until combined.
  4. Divide the dough in half. Press half of the dough into the prepared pan. Place the chocolate bars over the dough. Spread the marshmallow creme over the chocolate. Top with remaining dough.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
