These uber yummylious S’mores Bars are just perfect for those munchies moments! Layers of crushed biscuits, melted chocolate and fluffy marshmallows toasted and then sliced into bars and even the kids can get involved!
A S’more (Some More) is an american traditional nighttime campfire treat with fire roasted marshmallow, chocolate in between graham crackers sandwiched together. Did you know there is a National S’more day celebrated August 10th?! Yep this is true, maybe that’s a holiday I need to start celebrating!
Here in the UK Graham Crackers are not cheap, if you find them at all, so the next best alternative is Digestive biscuits, which I happened to have in the cupboard left over from Christmas, so this was my way of using them up.
As these S’more Bars are nut free they make great Friday lunch box treats for my kids, they usually have a treat everyday which is either a cheese string or yogurt stick with 3 fruits, but on a Friday I allow them a slightly naughty treat with 2 fruits! It’s all about balance.
I think these bars remind me of warm summer nights, when we have had a BBQ and made S’mores, so as its freezing cold outside, I thought I would bring a little summer in the winter!
