It’s the last day of S’mores Week. All the chocolatey, marshmallowy goodness has been so much fun! Surely you’ve seen No Bake Golden Graham Smores Bars before. I even saw a candy bar version at The Home Depot (I spend a lot of time there…don’t ask).
But my Golden Graham Smores Bars do all those other bars one better. I toasted the mini marshmallows before adding them to the chocolate butter mixture. That’s right, all the yummy toasty, chocolaty flavors of smores all in one no-bake, easy package!
I don’t like to play favorites with desserts (or books!) but these Toasted Marshmallow Golden Graham Smores Bars were my favorite! Not that I didn’t LOVE Monday’s Chewy Smores Crumble Bars or Wednesday’s Mini Smores Cheesecakes , because I totally did! But these no bake bars were just so shockingly easy and addicting!
Aaanndd based on the rate at which the half of the pan that I didn’t eat disappeared, The Husband agrees. 😉
The crunchy golden grahams are surrounded by a toasted marshmallow and milk chocolate coating that has a subtle caramel flavor from the marshmallows. More marshmallows and milk chocolate are sprinkled on top. A quick pass under the broiler, toasts them to perfection! I swooned with every single bite!
The key to the ease of this recipe is broiling the mini marshmallows on buttered parchment. I put a little bit of butter on a baking sheet, stuck down the parchment paper and generously buttered every inch, and then broiled the mini marshmallows for 15-30 seconds as close to the broiler as possible. The caramelized, gooey marshmallows came right of the parchment with out even a hint of a sticky mess.
Even though technically I used my broiler to toast the marshmallows, I am still going to call these no bake because 30 seconds under a broiler doesn’t count as baking in my book. And since I make the rules…
You could skip toasting the marshmallows, but…
Trust me, you don’t want to! So amazing!
Unlike every other recipe I’ve seen for Golden Graham Smores Bars, mine don’t include any corn syrup because I’m anti. As a result, you need to mix the golden grahams into the chocolate marshmallow mixture as fast as humanly possible. If you want to add it for the texture and ease of mixing, go for it. I would add approximately 1 tablespoon but I have seen up to 2 in other recipes.
The only thing I strongly suggest is that you double this recipe. You’ll be glad you did!
