The time for making S'mores outdoors is coming to an end, and in case you didn't already know, I have a thing for S'mores. Indoor S'mores. So this campfire out-of-season thing doesn't affect me so much.
I've been making these bars all summer. They were a huge hit at the Farmers Market. And, here I am sharing this special recipe. It's called love. I love you all, and you should try these for yourselves.
One thing you must know about these bars first... I use Biscoff spread. Have you heard of this stuff?
I found it in the peanut butter section of my local Meijer's. I'm always searching for a peanut butter replacement since my son has allergies to nuts. He is not fond of Sunbutter or Soybutter... I tried. I would taste them myself, force a "Mmmm, yummy!", and then when he wasn't looking I'd start desperately searching my pantry for something to get that flavor out of my mouth. But, I have the pleasure of knowing what real peanut butter tastes like. Poor kid.
Anyway, I find this Biscoff spread (didn't have a clue what a Biscoff cookie was). I taste this stuff and... OH MY! Briefly, I contemplated hiding in the closet and hoarding this jar of goodness to myself. It's the perfect replacement for peanut butter in this original recipe. I think it has a graham cracker flavor to it which helps keep with the genuine S'more flavor. I'm a genius!
Meijers carries this spread; It's $5.29 for a 14 oz. jar. If you can't find it at a store, online shopping may be your best option.

-3 c. Graham cracker crumbs (one sleeve)
-1/3 c. sugar
-1/2 tsp. salt
-2/3 c. (11 Tbsp.) unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper. Coat with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until wet crumbs form. Spread evenly on the bottom of prepared pan. Press down firmly. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside and cool completely.
-1/2 c. salted butter
-1 c. Biscoff spread
-2 c. bittersweet chocolate chips
-1, 16 oz bag miniature marshmallows
In a medium saucepan, melt butter, spread, and chocolate chips together over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until everything is melted and combined evenly. Remove from heat and let cool-pot should be cool enough to touch, you don't want to melt the marshmallows!
After filling has cooled enough pour over marshmallows in a large bowl. Fold until the chocolate is completely coating the marshmallows. Pour over graham cracker crust, use a spatula to create an even top. Place bars in the refrigerator.
- 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
-1 tsp. corn syrup
-1 stick unsalted butter
-graham crackers, crushed into large pieces
In a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate, corn syrup and butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring well after each time. Do not overheat! Once everything is melted and combined, pour evenly over cooled topping, using an offset spatula to work around pan as needed. Sprinkle with desired amount of graham cracker crumbs.
Return to fridge and cool completely (2-4 hours). To cut into bite-sized pieces, cut 9x13 pan into 12 squares, then cut each square into fours. Enjoy!

It's good to know these have been such a hit! And this is the second time today I've heard about Biscoff spread. I would think it's doubtful to find in Canada, but now I'm just so intrigued I'll have it on my brain every time I go shopping. ;)ReplyDelete
