S’mores Fudge Bars

These quick and easy no-bake s’mores fudge bars are popular year round. They can be stored in the fridge or kept at room temperature.

S'mores Fudge Bars

Last week it was chilly and cool.  I loved it.  I was able to wear a beanie, wrap a scarf around my neck, and even make myself a cup of hot chocolate.  

And then, today happened.  80 degrees in the middle of December.  I got dressed and ready to head out, only to return to my closet and change into shorts and a t-shirt.  Oh, California.

With these s’mores fudge bar you can pretend it’s summer regardless of the actual season!

S’mores Fudge Bars

No campfire s’mores.  And none of those cheater’s s’mores made over the kitchen stove.  I’m making s’mores FUDGE bars!  

Buttery and crumbly graham cracker base.  Rich and creamy chocolate fudge.  Ooey,gooey toasted marshmallows.  Yes to all of the above.

I’ve been testing out chocolate desserts to bring to my family’s Christmas party this weekend.  I may have found a winner with this one.  These are sure to delight all the kids (as well as the adults).

I thought about spiking the chocolate with a splash of whiskey or rum for the grown-ups.  Because, honestly, it’s a not a holiday party without a little liquor.

s'mores-fudge-with-a-glass-of-milkI’ll be making plenty of these during the summer months– especially because it is a quick, easy, no-bake dessert!  It can be stored in the fridge or kept at room temperature (read: perfect party and picnic food!).

S'mores Fudge Bars

Author Maryanne Cabrera

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup ground graham crackers
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups (11 oz) chopped dark chocolate
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cup small marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. Lightly grease with cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine ground graham crackers, sugar, and salt. Add melted butter and fold together until mixture is moistened. Transfer mixture to prepared square pan. Press into an even layer. Keep chilled in the fridge while you melt chocolate.

  3. Melt together chopped chocolate and sweetened condensed milk in a medium metal or glass bowl over a small pot filled with an inch of barely simmering water. Stir together until chocolate is melted. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate.

  4. Once chocolate has melted, remove from heat and pour chocolate over graham cracker crust. Sprinkle 2 cups of small marshmallows over chocolate. Press to ensure marshmallows adhere to chocolate. Place in fridge for at least 20 minutes for chocolate fudge to set.

  5. Remove from pan. Cut into desired portions. Use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows.

Recipe Notes

Ingredient Notes:

  • Do not use milk chocolate. Mixed with the sweetened condensed milk, it will be extremely sweet. I suggest 72% dark chocolate.

Storage and Leftovers:

  • Store leftovers in airtight container either at room temperature or keep chilled in the fridge. Leftovers should keep for a week (longer in the fridge).

I got to try some of these at Caren’s shortly after you made them. They taste even more amazing then they looked in the picture!

    Maryanne

    Awesome, thanks! Glad you were able to taste them!! :)

Monique

Hi there!
Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe!
I tried it today and I had problems with the crust not attaching to the chocolate layer.
Do you have any tips for me?
Thanks again!

    Hi Monique! You may have overheated the chocolate. That causes the fat from the chocolate to separate, which may have been the reason why the chocolate didn’t stick to the crust. To ensure the chocolate melts over gentle heat, you could bring 1-inch of water to a boil then remove it from the stove before you place the bowl of chocolate over the pot. The steam escaping from the just boiled water should be enough heat to melt the chocolate.

Hi Caren
These S’more Fudge Bars look great and would be a fun 4th of July dessert. My problem is that I do not have a kitchen torch. Could I briefly put them in the broiler for a very short amount of time.
Thank you Marianne

    A kitchen torch will yield the best results because you can control the amount of heat used on the marshmallows. If you want to use a broiler, make sure the baking rack is placed right underneath the broiler. Depending on how hot your broiler get, it should take less than one minute. Just make sure that you don’t heat it so much that the chocolate layer melts.

Hi Maryanne,

I don’t have a kitchen torch, will it be fine if I just pop it in the oven? If yes, what’s the required temperature?

Much love and thanks,

Jessie

    Hi Jessie, the kitchen torch is ideal so you don’t melt the fudge bars. In a pinch you could set it directly under an oven broiler for 15-20 seconds until the marshmallows are toasted. Keep an eye on it because the heat may cause the fudge bars to melt.
