Two things this momma loves: Cooking with my kiddos and Any combination of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. While you won’t find me camping much during the winter, I have to use a little creativity to get my Smore’s fix. My original go-to was a smores topping on my brownies, but while I was making cracker candy this holiday season I thought, why not try this with my beloved smores? It was a HIT! Here’s how to make this Valentines Day Dessert–Smores Recipe:
VALENTINES DAY DESSERT: SMORES RECIPE
- 2 sleeves of graham crackers, broken into halves and quarters
- 3/4 cup of butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 to 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 4 full-sized Hershey Bars or 2 giant Hershey Bars
- Valentine’s M&Ms
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch jelly-roll pan with parchment paper and top with broken graham crackers. Cover pan completely.
Next, in a small saucepan, slowly melt the butter completely over low heat.
Then add the brown sugar all at once and stir until smooth and melted. Allow the mixture to boil while stirring constantly for about 2 minutes or until it begins to thicken.
Remove butter mixture from heat and evenly pour over the top of the graham crackers. Use a spatula to smooth mixture over evenly and place into the oven for 5 minutes.
Take the pan out of the oven and immediately sprinkle small squares of chocolate, marshmallows, and Valentines M&Ms all over the top. This is where my little one liked to help me!
Place the pan back into the oven for 2-4 minutes, or until you notice the marshmallows start to puff up. Allow the pan to cool fully before breaking up into squares.
There are so many great uses for this easy recipe – a fun Valentine’s treat for Daddy, Grandparents, Neighbors, and Teachers! Enjoy!
