Christmas S’mores Surprise

Christmas S'mores Surprise

So, obviously, I had to create a Christmasy s’mores recipe to share with you today.  Obviously.  As we all know, I have s’mores problems.  This recipe is a twist on one of my family’s favorite easy dessert recipes, which I shared a few weeks ago: Christopher Robin Magic Cookie Bars.  This version turned out SOO much gooey-er than the originals, I think because of the baking melts and the marshmallows.  If you want them less gooey you could use standard chocolate chips and less sweetened condensed milk.  Or you can do what I did and embrace the warm, oozing, gooey-ness and eat it with a spoon.  Then let the remainder of the dish sit uncovered overnight and it will harden enough to be cut into bars even using this precise recipe.

Let’s take a quick rundown of the process and then I will give you the detailed recipe at the end of the post.

One thing that I love about this recipe is that it is simple enough for a cute, wiggly little helper to make with you!

To make this recipe you will need graham cracker crumbs, butter, Hershey’s baking melts (or chocolate chips), White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s, mini marshmallows, and sweetened condensed milk.

Drizzly the sweetened condensed milk over the top of the whole dish.  (Use less than a full can if you want it less gooey.)

Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows and M&M’s over the top.  (This is just to make it look a little bit prettier.)

Bake covered with foil for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and then uncover it and bake it for 15-20 more minutes.  Allow to cool at least a bit.

Can you tell this kid’s mom is a blogger?  He had to take his OWN pictures of every step of our baking process.  I love him.

All done!  Scoop it into a bowl and enjoy or allow it to cool uncovered overnight for a more bar-like consistency.  Yum, yum, YUM!  It is rich, I’m warning you now!  Rich, but yummy.
