No Bake S’Mores Bars

  If you have been following my blog for a while, you know by now, a few things about me:

1) I am an Ice Cream-a-holic and may or may not have 8 different kinds of ice cream in my freezer at all times.

IMG_6072

2) I am GAGA over anything toffee or caramel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! {drool}

3) I like sour cream, cream cheese or anything whippy or creamy!

4) I LOVE everything that tastes like S’mores, especially around October.

5) I need my list to stop at 5, because stopping at 4 felt wrong. This is called OCD.

  Anyhow, I have posted a VARIETY of S’mores-esque recipes in the past like…..

Fluffy S’Mores Cake

Hi everyone! I was gone allll day yesterday helping my mom at her new house, and it was grocery day too.  I literally left the house at 9 and returned home for dinner.  I did stop home once, at 11:30 to throw the groceries in their homes, but then back to my mom’s.  This time, I didn’t return until supper time. (Dale was super sweet and had supper started!!!! Brownie points!!!!!!)  I don’t know how momma’s that work outside the home do it. I am exhausted, and I didn’t get HALF the stuff accomplished I wanted to today.  So alas, all I have to offer you today is a recipe, but that’s fun too, RIGHT?!  Especially when I tell you it’s DESSERT!  Mmmm!

  This creamy, mousse-like cake was DIVINE!  And pretty too!

Fluffy S’Mores Cake

001

  • FOR CRUST
  • 9 whole Rectangles Graham Cracker, Crushed
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • ¼ cubes Sugar
  • FOR FILLING:
  • 12 ounces, weight Extra Creamy Cool Whip, Thawed (divided Use)
  • 11-½ ounces, weight Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 8 ounces, weight Sour Cream

  • 1 whole Hershey’s Bar, Broken In Bits

Crush Graham crackers and mix with sugar and melted butter. Form a crust in the bottom of your springform pan. Bake at 350* for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool before continuing.
Carefully melt chocolate chips on stove top or in microwave, stirring often so it doesn’t scorch. Stir in 1 cup cool whip and pour over cooled crust, spreading evenly and freeze for 10 minutes to set.
Combine sour cream, marshmallow cream,remaining cool whip and crushed graham crackers. Spread over chocolate layer. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set.
“Decorate” using marshmallows, broken graham crackers and chocolate. You might want to press large marshmallow halves all the way around the perimeter to make it pretty. (I used Gingerbread marshmallows)

Return to fridge until serving time.

It’s very rich, slice ‘em small!

I Want S’More Bars

  Fall is here! Bringing with her, crisp air, crunchy leaves and jackets.

  When the Foodie in me thinks of Fall, I think of Apple Cider, Corn candy, Casseroles, Homemade Bread, Pumpkin everything: cookies, bars, cakes, cheesecakes, and last but not least…..

S’MORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

050

  We host a Bonfire every October for our Sunday school class (50 of us last year!!!! Woah!) and I usually get my S’mores fix then. 017

Or, sometimes I get a fix mid-winter, like January, during a very long ice storm that kept us holed up for DAYS, huddled next to the fire.  What better activity to pass time then to make some S’mores!!!!

  I am not a food trend kinda gal, but apparently S’mores stuffed cookies, bars, & pizzas were all the rage this summer. Huh! Who knew?

  Trendy or not, this recipe is perfect for those in-between S’mores cravings, when no bonfire or open fireplace is available to you……

I Want S’More Bars

from Chemically Inclined

2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 ½ cups flour
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
5 oz mini marshmallows
3 regular sized Hershey’s bars, broken into rectangles
16 graham crackers, broken into squares

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Break crackers into squares and place
side by side in your pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon to combine. Set aside.

In your mixer, cream butter with white and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixer and combine.

Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour to overnight. (cold is easier to work with)

Place tablespoons of dough on graham crackers, press until crackers are completely covered.

Bake for 5 minutes then remove from oven to press Hershey’s bar pieces on to the top.  Bake for 5 – 7 more minutes or until dough is beginning to turn golden brown at the edges.

Remove to a wire rack to cool. For clean cutting make sure cookies are completely cool and cut with a sharp knife.

  DIG IN! These are seriously AMAZING! The graham cracker base is a really nice touch, totally different from other S’mores recipes I have made in the past.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Snow Day Fun

   As I am writing you this evening, it’s 5* with -22*wind chill and a couple of inches of snow on the ground…school was cancelled, so I got my girl home for the day! 🙂  I love being home with everyone safe and warm, we have so much to be thankful for!

  The first thing the kids did when they found out there was no school for big sis, was declare it “Jammie Day!”

  Ok, ok twist my arm…..they’re warm, they’re snuggly and it’ll save time later at bedtime…I’m in!!!!

   They played hide & seek and ended up under Destiny’s bed playing “tent” most of the morning.  After nap time, as a special treat, we busted out the marshmallows to make S’mores.

  If you know me, you know I am anti-sugary snacks, but on this snowy day with a fire crackling in the fireplace, it just seemed like the right thing to do.  It made their day! 🙂

  Being the official “S’more Maker” is a MESSY (but delicious) job!!!!

  Oh, here is an interesting tidbit for you….

Did you know Walmart’s Graham Crackers no longer come in rectangle shape?  Nope, they are already broke in half.  Convenient, but kinda sad.  I LOVED eating those huge rectangles when I was a kid. 

Do they have to go and change EVERYTHING?

  Pax took a nice nap this afternoon, but woke up a bit frantic.  068

I went to his room to figure out what was wrong…..

 069 

  Little stinker had managed to wedge himself across the bottom of the bed and every time he kicked, he hit his head! 

    To make a great day even better, Daddy came home early!

065

    The rest of the afternoon was spent reading books, coloring and playing games. 

  We finished the evening with a yummy soup supper, Creamy Tortilla Soup (recipe to come) and a Custard Pie, using fresh eggs from our new feathered friends.  The crust recipe I used made two crusts, so I was forced to make a Peanut Butter Pie as well.  Oh the shame of it all!  The Custard Pie is devoured, only two pathetically small pieces remain.  The PB Pie awaits tomorrow nights dessert! YUM! 

Speaking of tomorrow….It’s back to reality, but what a great break!   

Never mind, I just got “the call”;  No school Wednesday either!  YAY!  🙂

Stay warm today!  Oh, and Happy Groundhog Day….

  Here’s to hoping the little critter doesn’t see his shadow, so we have a shorter winter!  But let’s be realistic, he is no weather forecaster!!!
