Have y’all been camping before? My husband and I just took our kids for the first time this past August. And actually, it was MY first time, too. (Which is crazy considering my father is a nature photographer, and growing up our summers were always filled with road trips to the national parks. My idea of camping was staying in a log cabin!) 

But friends, we had so much fun. Took us three days to wash off all the dirt, but worth it! Spending time near the water, seeing deer and lizards, and being unplugged from electronics was so therapeutic. And, of course, no camping trip would be complete without S’mores.

So, I know it’s Fall now. And it’s the rainy season. And ya, nobody’s going camping anymore. But who says S’mores have to be relegated to camping?

And since Halloween is around the corner, these bars are perfect for any left-over candy you might have!

Kit-Kat S’mores Bars
Makes 9-16 bars, depending how you cut them
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes

Ingredients
• 1 stick unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 1 large egg
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 5 full sheets graham crackers, crushed
• 3/4 cup all purpose flour
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 16 miniature Kit-Kat bars, crushed
• 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter together until smooth and creamy. Add in the egg and vanilla until incorporated. Add in the graham crackers, flour, salt, and baking powered until combined. (Dough will be sticky.)

Coat the back of a spatula with nonstick spray; spread half of the dough into the pan evenly. Sprinkle the Kit-Kat pieces over the dough, followed by the marshmallows. Flatten pieces of the remaining dough and place them on top of the marshmallows.

Baked for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let bars cool slightly before cutting and enjoy!

Hello, dear Amy! Thank you for the link of the lovely and sweet recipe. I’ll try to cook them as soon as possible (maybe this Sunday)… Photos look so tasty. Did you enjoy cooking them? And I answered the survey :)

Umm, can you say dangerously delicious? S’mores are one of the best summer snacks, but to put them in a BAR that I can make YEAR ROUND? Dangerous. Yet delicious.

So, I’m getting ready to make a pot of baked beans tomorrow (I’m planning to put a stupid amount of bourbon in them, because…booze), so how ’bout you pop on over, bring these bars, and then we can pretend we are having a summer cookout when really it’s October and wacky weather?

I know you love them. I dream about your cupcakes! What was I thinking when I said “left-over Halloween candy?’ Ya, maybe Gummy Bears. Like there would ever be left-over kit-kats. Riiiiight.
