Rocky Road S’mores Bars | A seriously delicious combo of two amazing treats!

Next up on my list of amazing blogger friends here to help me out during my maternity leave, Trish from Mom on Timeout! I absolutely adore Trish. When I first started following Trish’s blog, not long after I started blogging myself, I was super impressed with all her amazing dinner recipes, her amazing desserts, and her gorgeous pictures. And then when I met her in Minnesota last December when we both went to Pillsbury, I sort of fell in love with her. (You know, in a not weird at all, please don’t judge me sort of way.)  She is kind, smart, insightful, super helpful, and absolutely hilarious. I could spend hours talking to her.

If you are looking for my favorite MOTO recipes, head over and check out her Strawberry Lime White Chocolate Gooey Bars, her Balsamic Honey Grilled Steak Salad and Vinaigrette, and of course her Copy Cat KFC Coleslaw. Seriously, she’s SO talented! Thanks for being here Trish!!

Rocky Road S'mores Bars | A seriously delicious combo of two amazing treats!

Hey everyone! I’m Trish from Mom On Timeout and I am just thrilled to be guesting posting for Lisa here at Wine and Glue today! When I first found out that Lisa was pregnant I was BEYOND excited for her and her adorable family. We met up in Minnesota when we were both invited to Pillsbury and instantly hit it off. She is the sweetest, most amazing person and I couldn’t be happier for Lisa and her family.

Today I am sharing a combination of two of my all-time favorite treats – Rocky Road and S’mores. Both have those chocolate and marshmallow elements that I adore but each has something a little extra special that adds a bit of crunch.

I decided to put it all together in one amazing bar. Seriously good idea :)

I used an 8×8 baking dish to get more of a cube shape but you could make them in a 9×9 dish or even a 9×13 baking dish if you’d like them thinner. Crunchy, sweet, and packed full of marshmallows and all things sweet, this is one bar you won’t be able to resist!

Bonus – no baking required. A few minutes on the stovetop is all you need to get these bars going. And because I’m all about time-saving shortcuts, I break up the graham crackers right in their sleeves. Less mess :)

    Question about your S’mores Bars, would you be able to substitute something else for the corn syrup or omit it entirely? Just wondering.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Sherilyn! This is Mom On Timeout’s recipe, so I can’t speak to it like I speak for my own, but I just did a quick read up on subbing out corn syrup and some sites suggest making your own syrup out of pure sugar (1 cup) and water (1/4 cup) and combining them over a low flame. I would then replace it tablespoon for tablespoon. I suspect you wouldn’t be able to leave it out entirely because it is probably part of the reason these delicious bars stick together.
