Chocolate Chip S'mores Bars

I have a habit of stocking up on graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate chips during the holiday to make my favorite no-bake mango float, hot chocolate and choco chip cookies respectively. So what do you do if you have several leftovers of these ingredients? Make  s’mores, of course! Hey, that rhymes! Cool!

S’mores is the perfect snack for summer nights and campfire (at least that’s my opinion) but in reality they can be eaten anytime of the year.  I am not really a big fan of campfires but I do love eating s’mores. This recipe is a great way for you to recycle leftover scraps from your holiday menu to make a treat that kids and those who are young at heart will surely enjoy. 

Chocolate Chip S’mores Bars

1 cup flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup softened butter (unsalted)
1 egg
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup chocolate chips
marshmallows for topping

Preheat the oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking soda). Separately on another bowl, beat together the brown sugar and butter until the mixture becomes light. You can beat the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla. Gradually add the graham cracker crumbs and the flour mixture. Add the chocolate chips last.

Grease a baking pan and pour the mixture evenly. Add marshmallows on top. Bake for 10 minutes or until the marshmallow turns into a light brown color. Turn the oven off and add more chocolate chips on top. Let it stay in the oven for a few minutes until the chocolate chips have melted.

Note:  You can use less sugar as indicated in this recipe if you are not such a sweet tooth yourself. On the other hand, you can use the boiler setting of your oven to toast the marshmallow. You can also top the s’mores with more chocolates.
