var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

S’mores = The ooey, gooey snack that everyone loves.  We love chocolate and marshmallows in this home and summer isn’t complete without at least one night where we indulge in the treat.  Give me S’mores and I am in heaven.  It’s a tradition that is worth sharing even in mid-winter when roasting marshmallows over an open fire isn’t really a possiblity in South Dakota.

This recipe was inspired by the Challenge Butter “Real Heritage Recipe Contest”, to re-create a great family heritage recipe using Challenge Butter.  Well I don’t know how “heritage-y” S’mores are, but my family thinks they’re great, and these S’mores Bars have become a treat in our home that are much loved.  Heritage Recipes have to start somewhere right?  So this is a recipe that I actually made up myself (not that there aren’t other S’mores Bars recipes out there, but this one in fact I modified from a pizza dough recipe and changed the ingredients to suit a S’mores base!) – and maybe it’s one that my grandchildren will be asking for the recipe to make their children some day!! 

Challenge Butter is looking for the best family heritage recipes that you have!  Is it the peach cobbler that your grandmother has always made that makes you smile?  What about your aunt’s famous mashed potatoes and gravy?  As long as Challenge Butter is involved, they want to see it!  They also want to know the recipe’s history and its meaning to you and your family!  Share with them about how you learned this recipe!  You can find all you need to know about how to submit a recipe here:  http://heritage.challengedairy.com/

4 Grand Prize Winners will win $500 worth of Good Cook products as well as $2500 CASH!  12 Finalists will walk away with $250 worth of Good Cook products!  To stay current with all great things Challenge, including upcoming promotions, coupons, and deals, you can sign up for the Challenge Club at www.facebook.com/ChallengeButter.

So if you too want to have the summery taste of S’mores in the chill of mid-winter ….enjoy!

S’mores Bars


3/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
6 tablespoons of cold Challenge Butter, cut up
1 egg
2 Tbsp buttermilk
1 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees. 

To make crust: Mix flour and graham cracker crumbs together and then cut butter in. When coarse, add the egg and buttermilk to make a dough. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Roll out in a 9 x 13 pan (it may not reach quite to the edges, for a thicker crust use a smaller pan). Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on the crust and then the mini marshmallows on top of that.  Place back in the oven for 5 minutes.  

After the 5 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and then with a spatula sprayed with cooking spray spread the chocolate and marshmallows over the crust.  Let sit for a while until the chocolate has hardened a bit, you can place it in the fridge to speed that process up.  Cut and enjoy!
