Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars

9 Jun

I’ve been collecting recipes on Pinterest for several weeks now.  It’s actually becoming sort of addicting.  Anyway,  I decided that I am going to try at least one recipe from my Pinterest collection every week, otherwise it makes no sense to just waste time pinning recipes all day like a weirdo with no life.  This weekend I decided to make Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars.  I LOVE S’mores.  If you don’t believe me, please refer to this post: I Effing Love S’mores.  Before you read any further, I would just like to point out a couple things.

1. I DO NOT bake.

and

2. I haven’t mastered the art of food photography yet so forgive the crappy pics.  Next time I will use my Nikon instead of my iPhone.

This is how they are SUPPOSED to look.

Warm Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 cups milk chocolate chips (18 oz)
4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix and crumbs. Stir in melted butter until soft dough forms. Press into ungreased 13×9-inch pan.

2. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until set.

3. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt. Spread chocolate evenly over crust.

3. Set oven control to broil. Sprinkle marshmallows over melted chocolate. Broil with top 4 to 5 inches from heat 20 to 30 seconds or until marshmallows are toasted. (Watch closely; marshmallows will brown quickly.) Cool 10 minutes. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Serve warm. Store any remaining bars tightly covered.

These were pretty delicious although I have a few complaints.  I wish the crust was a little more “graham crackery”.  The next time I make them I will probably try a different graham cracker crust.  Also, it said to serve warm but when it is warm it does not come out in “bar” form like the pretty picture all the way at the top.  It actually comes out more like this:

Overall, for my first recipe I think it was a success.  They are kind of messy and hard to serve if you are having a party or something.  But they are very yummy so I would suggest that anyone who loves them some s’mores should try them!

Hostess Sno Balls- Little Pillows of Happiness

4 Jun

One thing in this world that I really LOVE are Hostess Sno Balls.  These coconut covered marshmallows with cream filled chocolate cake inside are like little fluffy pillows of happiness.  Who wouldn’t love a combination of such deliciousness?

My favorite thing about Sno Balls (besides the yumminess) is that they come in all different colors.  My favorite of course are the pink ones…obviously.  During Halloween they sell them in orange.  During St. Patty’s day they sell them in green, and I even saw them in bright blue….not really sure what that was for.  And of course there’s the traditional white ones.

I found a recipe for a giant “Sno Ball” cake.  I am going to attempt to bake this at some point in my life and will keep you posted with the results.  Keep in mind, I pretty much suck at baking but I will give it my best shot.  So…do yourself a favor and head to the grocery store, 7-11, Quick Check, or any gas station with a convenience store and buy yourself some Sno Balls.  You won’t be disappointed.
