June is here which can only mean one thing- the kickoff of “s’mores season“! That’s right, sweet summertime is just beginning, the nights get longer, the lingering scent of bonfires fills the air and s’mores are being made all around the country. An American treat, a favorite of kids and adults alike. I’m known to make stove top s’mores year round, but I’m always on the lookout for new recipes that incorporate the toothsome treats in new and innovative ways. I stumbled upon the recipe for frozen smores bars and immediately my mouth hit the floor- I knew I was going to whip some up that night! The original recipe incorporates all homemade ingredients, right down to the graham crackers. I’m all about homemade, but I’m a 24 year old working full-time- ain’t nobody got time for that! So I adjusted the recipe slightly and was beyond thrilled with how they turned out… I think I shoveled in 3 that night!
Frozen Smores Bars
adapted from Sweetened With Honey
1 package cinnamon graham crackers
1 package semisweet chocolate chips
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
¾ cups marshmallow fluff
1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
1-2 teaspoons milk, if needed
To make the marshmallow filling, beat cream cheese in the bowl of electric mixer until creamy. Add in fluff and beat for 2-3 minutes, then add in vanilla extract. With the mixer on low speed, add in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until fully incorporated. Once all the sugar has been added, beat on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes. If mixture if too runny, add a bit more sugar. If it’s too thick, add a bit of milk one teaspoon at a time.
