Or easier than pie. Because honestly, making a pie from scratch doesn’t sound all that easy.
The caramel-related-recipes were not for the faint of heart. This recipe definitely is though. (I use the word recipe loosely)
S’mores Bars: so easy your pet chinchilla could make them.
Here are the ingredients you need:
- Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie Mix
- Graham Crackers
- Chocolate Chips
- Mini Marshmallows
- A hobby to do while you are twiddling your thumbs
Step 1: Crush your graham crackers. (You can choose to skip this step by purchasing pre-crushed graham crackers. If this is your plan, I would recommend shopping somewhere other than Target)
Step 2: Mix your crumbs with Betty’s mix. Then mix in some melted butter. Congratulations! You have now done 98% of the work involved in this recipe.
Step 3: Press this into a pan and bake it in the oven.
Enjoy a hobby while this bakes. Personally, I chose to wash a few dishes that I’d said, “No thank you” to earlier in the week, and then sat and gazed admiringly at my new Twins-meets-Caribou travel mug that my Awesome friend Brooke gave me. You can chose to do the same, or find your own hobby.
Step 5: Take the pan out of the oven. Sprinkle on some chocolate chips. Go back to enjoying your hobby for 3-5 minutes while these melt on their own.
Step 6: Spread out the chocolate.
Step 7: Sprinkle on the mini marshmallows. Put them in the oven on broil. For like 30 seconds. Done.
Step 8: Have tornadoes come through town so that you can’t head out to the BBQ and share them with all your friends as planned.
Step 9: Enjoy your bar while waiting out severe weather.
Step 10: Back up plan: bring them to work and feed them to your coworkers. You will probably get responses similar to these:
- Where are these bars I am hearing about? Everyone is walking around just looking so happy!
- OH Yum! Thanks for sharing!
- God bless you!
- They are yummy, I highly recommend them!
- As the great Usher would say, ‘O M G’
There you have it! 10 easy steps to baking success! (and let’s be honest, it took me a lot of work to stretch a 3 step baking task into 10 steps.)
P.S. You are welcome for sharing pictures of the baking process. It is a confusing recipe, and helpful to see what you are meant to do for each step along the way…
P.P.S Shout-out to my mom for steering me in the right direction (that direction would be towards this recipe)
