S'more Bars

S'more Bars - made in the microwave! So easy.

Jacob and I did something crazy. We actually went out on a week night. We went to a Jarrod Niemann concert last night. You probably know his song Lover Lover or Drink to That All Night, if you're into country. The venue was close to our house, smaller scene, and $25 tickets so we couldn't pass it up.

Because of Mr. Henry, I escaped work a couple hours early so he would have some play time before we left for the concert. He was excited to see me AND to eat his dinner early.

I'll tell you more about the concert on Friday but until then let's focus on these super easy S'more Bars! They take less than 10 minutes to make and then about an hour to set. Plus, it's made in the microwave so you won't heat up your house.

I also took my first stab at including video in my posts (posted below in the recipe). Give me a few more times to really make them cool, but hopefully you'll love the visual of the baking steps.

S'more Bars

7 or 8 whole graham crackers
2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups rice krispies

Butter a 9 x 13 microwave safe dish.

Place 6 or 7 whole graham crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the dish. Break up the remaining graham cracker to fill in the empty space. Cover evenly with marshmallows and microwave on high for 1 minute, or until marshmallows are puffed. Set aside to cool.

In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, corn syrup, butter, and peanut butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, and heat additional 30 second bursts until melted and smooth.

Stir in rice krispies. Dump mixture on top of marshmallows. Spread cereal mixture so it covers the marshmallows. Cover and place in the refrigerator to set, about an hour. Cut into squares and serve. Store in airtight containers.
