Recipe Ingredients

MARSHMALLOWS: This recipe uses mini marshmallows. They’re the perfect size to sprinkle on top of these dessert bars.

GRAHAM CRACKERS: Graham crackers are traditionally used in campfire s’mores and they make the perfect cookie base for these bars too! You’ll need about 1 sleeve of graham crackers depending on the size of package. I used 32 crackers for this recipe. It’s okay if you use a few more or few less.

BUTTER: Personally, I love to use salted butter when melting with marshmallows. I love that subtle hint of saltiness in the recipe. You can also use unsalted butter.

CHOCOLATE CHIPS: Feel free to use dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips for this recipe.

Recipe Tips

  • Use a microwave-safe square baking dish for this recipe.
  • Crush the graham crackers into small, bite-size pieces. If they’re too big, it will be harder to press them into the dish.
  • Use mini marshmallows if possible. These are perfect for sprinkling on top. If you have regular size marshmallows, you can cut them into smaller pieces and use those for the topping.
  • When pressing the melted marshmallows and graham crackers, be sure to grease your fingertips with a bit of cooking oil. This will make it easier to press without sticking.
  • The recipe is heated in the microwave for 30-90 seconds. Melt in 30-second increments, keeping an eye on it as it goes. As soon as the marshmallows start to melt you can stop. You want the marshmallows to maintain their shape but be slightly melted so they stick to the top of the bars.
  • Refrigerate the bars for at least 1 hour, or until the chocolate chips have firmed up. This makes it easier to slice into the bars with a sharp knife.
