Give Me S'more, Please!

If you have read my blog before, you know I am a sucker for anything s'mores related.
If you have never read my blog before, well, now you know too!
{and I am not the only one in the family with this issue.}
We have a "go-to" gift for work associates, neighbors, etc. but last year we decided to switch things up and make S'mores Bark. This is too good for words. I had to pack it up/ship it off/walk it over/whatever to its destination ASAP or, well, it was going to be ugly over here.

This is super cute packages in a mason jar with a fun tag, or on a pretty plate, or ya know what...it doesn't matter it tastes so good no one will care!

INGREDIENTS/SUPPLIES
(adapted from a recipe found at about.com)
  • 16-17 full graham crackers (about 1 and 1/2 sleeves)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • Rimmed baking sheet
  • OPTIONAL: nuts, bacon, candies

DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Arrange graham crackers in a single layer on the cookie sheet. Place them right up next to one another. You may have to cut or break apart some of the graham crackers.
  5. Melt/Stir butter and brown sugar together in a saucepan over a medium flame.
  6. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil, being sure to stir constantly to avoid separating or scorching.
  7. Once at a constant boil, pour the mixture over the graham crackers. Use a spatula to spread it over the crackers in an even layer.
  8. Place toffee in the oven for 5 minutes. It should be bubbling all over.
  9. Remover from the oven and cool for one minute.
  10. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the hot toffee and let rest for about 1 minute, then spread with a spatula or knife.
  11. Once evenly spread, sprinkle mini marshmallows on top (I press them down just a little).
  12. FOR FUN! I put the entire cookie sheet in the broiler for 2 minutes to toast the marshmallows and then popped them in the refrigerator to firm up. The toasty taste is the best!
ADDITIONAL TOPPINGS:
You can also add other favorite items like toasted pecans...or what about joining the bacon craze and crumbling some crispy bacon on top for bacon s'mores bark!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Oh, by the way...Unless a maid, chef and nanny arrive on my door tomorrow, there is no way tickled pink will be up tomorrow night. I am shooting for Friday night!

I will announce the Moen Faucet winner later today too!
Sorry, there were pies to bake and childrent to tend to!
