S’mores, the quintessential campfire treat, has made its way to my table in the form of a no-bake bar! Now you can enjoy the full flavours of marshmallow, Graham cracker, and dark chocolate without having to venture into the woods. The crisp crunch and soft chewiness of the marshmallows make for an outrageously involved texture. The holidays just keep getting better…
*This is a no-bake recipe!
1/2 cup butter
3 Tblsps golden syrup or golden corn syrup
300g good quality dark chocolate (60% – 70%)
Approx. 100g Graham crackers (digestive cookies for those in the UK if you can’t find Graham) **
Approx. 100g mini marshmallows
1 Tblsp icing sugar for dusting
Break the chocolate into small pieces. In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter, chocolate, and golden syrup (or corn syrup, which ever you have) on low heat. Remove from heat. Place Graham crackers in a Ziplock bag and bash with a rolling pin into small pieces (you will have chunks and crumbs.) Add the Graham cracker pieces to the chocolate mixture along with the mini marshmallows and mix.
Line an 8×8 square baking cake pan with aluminium foil. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cake pan and gently flatten and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Put in the fridge for 2 hours and finish with a dusting of icing sugar.
** Substitute Graham crackers for a gluten-free variety and this recipe is gluten free!
