Chocolatey s' mores bars recipe is full of chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows baked on top of a sugar cookie crust. A super easy smores bar recipe dessert you can enjoy indoors and still feel like you are eating a traditional camping treat!

Chocolate Smores bars

When someone mentions the words camping, two things come to mind; telling stories around a campfire and eating everyone's favorite dessert: chocolatey gooey s’ mores bars.

There is something about finding the perfect branch, whittled down to fit a marshmallow or two, slowly twirling them above the flames to get a crispy golden brown, then carefully squishing the toasted goodness between graham crackers and chocolate.

Making  S'mores at home

When the evenings are cool enough for a fire in the chiminea, the kids are quick to ask “Do we have S’mores stuff?” I think flavors of chocolate, toasted marshmallow, and graham crackers bring out the kid in everyone, don't you agree? 

Two options for making this camping dessert at home are around the patio firepit or in the oven

  • Patio Firepit: This is probably the closest you can get to camping while at home. There are so many options on the market now, but I love all the options Serenity Health & Home provides. They have every style and variety of firepit both wood-burning and gas, and any accessory you could need. So grab that bag of marshmallows and sticks and get creating! 
  • Home OvenWhen summer is here, it's nice to take a break from the heat and humidity and bring the camping fun indoors! Set up a tent in any room and bake this treat to enjoy. S'mores bars have all the same gooey goodness as the outdoor version but in the shape of a cookie bar!

Gooey S'mores Bars Ingredients

We're going to use the baked version of this easy s'mores bars recipe because they really are easy & quick.

  • Chocolate: Bars of chocolate are preferred when making oven smores bars, but substituting semi-sweet morsels work great too! In fact, that's all I had in my pantry! 
  • Graham Crackers: Also, to save time putting this together, I used a box of graham cracker crumbs (usually found with the pie-making section) instead of crushing up the crackers.
  • Sugar Cookie Mix: My favorite pouch of sugar cookie mix is Betty Crocker, which you can find in most baking sections.
  • Marshmallows: Because these s' mores bars bake in the oven, I like to use miniature marshmallows. They came out gooey and delicious and also get that toasty brown color too. 
  • Butter: Salted butter is my preference because it will enhance the chocolate and bring out the sweetness of the cookie dough. You can certainly use unsalted if you prefer.

Chocolatey smores bars recipe Instructions

Preheat: your oven to 375 degrees. 

Prepare crust: In a large mixing bowl, mix together pouch of sugar cookie mix and graham cracker crumbs. Add melted butter and stir until dough comes together.

Smores bar cookies

Make the crust: Press prepared dough into a 13×9 inch pan lined with parchment paper. (This will make it easy to remove from pan)

Bake: cookie-graham cracker dough 15-18 minutes or until crust is set.

Add chocolate: Pour chocolate chips on top of warm cookie crust. Let sit for a few minutes to melt, and then spread carefully over crust.

Set oven to top broil.

Pour marshmallows: over the melted chocolate. Place pan 5-6 inches below the broiler and cook until marshmallows begin to toast. I actually prefer to use a small culinary torch, like this one. It's so much easier than watching it under the broiler! 

Keep a close eye on the marshmallows as they cook very quickly! This should only take about 15 seconds. Cool for 5 minutes.

Remove smores bars from pan and cool 5 more minutes.

Cut into bars and serve warm.

Additional toppings

Just like the firepit version, this s'mores bar recipe with graham crackers can handle really fun add-in toppings! Try these next time you make them:

  • Bacon: Who doesn't love bacon?! Sprinkle crumbled cooked bacon on top of the toasted marshmallow topping before serving. Yum! 
  • Peanut Butter: You can put a schmear of peanut butter on cooked cookie crust before adding the chocolate. 
  • Peanut Butter chips: or, mix in peanut butter morsels with your semi-sweet morsels, for an added flavor bonus! 
  • Flavored marshmallows: try using flavored marshmallows, like chocolate, toasted coconut, or fruity flavored. What a fun twist to your s'mores bars recipe!
