Super cute and really tasty s’mores bars can be yours in almost no time at all. They only require 5 ingredients and almost no effort!

      Take that iconic s’mores combination and make it into a fun bar. With a graham cracker base, deliciously gooey chocolate brownie-like layer and fun toasted marshmallow topper it is hard to go wrong!  If you have Peeps leftover after a holiday, this is a perfect way to use them.  They get golden, gooey and oh so delicious!

       The best part is the recipe starts with a cake mix, so it whips up quick and easily. You can have it in the oven in a matter of minutes!

         You can tell spring has sprung when colorful treats hit the supermarket shelves. Few things are as iconic at Easter time as those marshmallow chicks and bunnies.

         I already had a s’more dip recipe on the blog that utilizes Peeps, so I thought it would be fun to explore that theme a little further.

         You can never have too many s’more inspired treats after all. No matter how many I have, I’ll always want s’more. 😂🤣

        Excuse the bad humor, I  can’t help myself sometimes!

         Back to the matter at hand, I was really happy with how these bars turned out.  I had them in the oven less than 10 minutes after I decided to make them.

         With only a short 15 minute bake time, they are ready in a jif. I would let them cool a smidge before you cut them, but you can always put them in the fridge for a couple of minutes if you are in a hurry.

        The graham cracker base gives them some stability, so you can keep the chocolate layer on the gooey side if you’d like.  Each bite has the perfect combination of textures and flavors.

      My boys were pretty excited when they saw them. It’s hard not to get excited about something as fun and tasty as these though.

      I loved using the bunnies for this, they made cutting even pieces a breeze. I also made some simple sweet and salty nests for the chicks. I shared the recipe on instagram.

Tips and Tricks for making S’mores Bars:

  • I lined my pan with foil to make cutting the bars easier. You can just lift the whole batch out of the pan and cut them without cutting into the side of the pan.
  • To easily line your pan, form the foil over the outside/bottom of the pan. Once it is shaped, place it inside the pan.
  • I found using my fingers was the easiest way to spread the batter over the graham crackers.
  • The bars cut more cleanly if they have a chance to cool and set up a bit before removed from the pan and cut.
  • You can store these at room temperature for up to a week. 

For another cute and easy way to jazz up Peeps, try chocolate dipped Peeps. They have a fluffy white tail making them extra darling.
