S’mores Bars


Hey everyone, Dan here today.  When Beth and I retire and waste our life savings opening up a money-losing bed and breakfast that shows up on Kitchen Nightmares, I will be the savory chef and she will be the pastry chef.  Still, I’ve been known to make a dessert from time to time.  For Thanksgiving, I made a pumpkin cheesecake that was pretty well received, and a few months ago I made these S’mores bars, which were delicious, although they were a bit messy to eat.  Perhaps it’s not a coincidence that both of these recipes originally came from Paula Deen, since it seems like putting enough butter and sugar into a recipe makes it very hard to screw up.  (In related news, stay tuned for my next dessert post, where I describe how to prepare my patented sugar-coated buttersticks.  Step 1:  Take a stick of butter.  Step 2:  Roll it in sugar.  Step 3:  Enjoy.  Step 4:  Pass out from sugar shock or your arteries turning to butter.)  Anyway, the recipe came to us in adapted form from a blog called Let’s Dish, so I have posted a link to it here.  In the meantime please enjoy a few more pictures of the marshmallowy chocolatey goodness.
