Frozen S'mores Bars: National S'mores Day

August 10 is National S'mores Day. S'mores, however, are no longer relegated to summer campfires. You can make all kinds of S'mores all year round. Here's my S'mores Recipe Round-up from 2012.

And, here's one more, that's so easy: FROZEN S'MORES BARS. You can glam these up by making your own graham crackers and using fabulous chocolate--or making your own Marshmallow Fluff (recipe below). But, if you're in a hurry and just want a yummy treat, use store bought grahams, Marshmallow Fluff, and dark chocolate.

How to make these: 

Basically you're freezing marshmallow cream between two graham crackers, dipping the'sandwiches'  in melted dark chocolate and then freezing! How easy is that?

Want to be more precise?


Put graham crackers bottom side up on parchment lined cookie sheet. Pipe (use a ziplock with a corner cut out or piping bag) marshmallow cream onto graham crackers and top with graham crackers. Put in freezer to harden (30 minutes).
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. Let cool a bit (can't be too hot or will start to melt the cream).
Keep cookies in freezer until ready to use. Take a few out and dip halfway in chocolate. Put back in freezer. Continue to dip. Freeze until hard.

Want to make your own Marshmallow Fluff?

3 egg whites, room temp
2 cups lite corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 Tbsp Madagascar vanilla

In bowl of stand mixer with whisk attachment, add egg whites, corn syrup, and salt.
On high speed whisk for 5 minutes, until thick and doubled.
On low speed, add powdered sugar. Mix until blended. Add vanilla and blend.

Yum - any suggestions on how much marshmallow fluff to put on them for the first time one makes them? layer once, or layer twice?

I put on about 1/2 inch thick. Bit don't take it to the edge of the Grahams. Think ice cream sandwich. :-)
