Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #14 and No-bake S’more Bars

Posted on

Talk about the power of suggestion!

Last week with our Brownie Batter Dip, we suggested maybe you pack some graham crackers and marshmallows to go along with the dip and make yourself a quickie S’mores snack out by the pool.

Now this week we’re going straight to the source and making the real deal–No-bake S’more Bars: as in mix it all together, chill for a little while, then have yourself about the most fun snack in the world!

But this snack has to be eaten in the summer. So call it our jump-into-summer-with-a-bang dessert, to kick the season off. You can eat them on the deck and pretend you’re sitting around the campfire, or eat them around the campfire and avoid that disgusting charred marshmallow taste–yuck!

Or just say the heck with all those pretend settings and eat the whole pan while sitting on the couch in the air conditioning listening to Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #14. Now that’s a way to kick off the summer season!

4 cups mini marshmallows, divided

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

pinch of salt

6 ounces (a scant 1 cup) milk chocolate chips, divided

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup Honey Teddy Grahams*, broken into small pieces

no bake smores

Line a 5×7 inch pan with foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large saucepan, heat 3 cups of the mini marshmallows, unsalted butter, and salt over medium heat. Stir frequently until all of the ingredients are melted and smooth. This will take about 2-3 minutes. Add half of the milk chocolate chips and stir until melted and incorporated with other ingredients. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in vanilla.

Quickly add the remaining marshmallows, chocolate chips, and Teddy Grahams and fold into the mixture until evenly distributed. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and spread evenly. Cover and refrigerate until firm, or about 2 hours. When ready to eat, cut into squares with a serrated knife.

Makes 6-8 bars.

*You can also use whole graham crackers broken into small pieces.
