HOW TO MAKE EASY S’MORES BARK
- Prep: Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper to make sure the bark doesn’t stick to the pan. Then line the sheet with graham crackers. Make sure to keep the crackers as close as possible. You can break the graham crackers up to make them fit properly.
- Chocolate: Add the milk chocolate chips to a microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30-second increments until melted stirring every 30 seconds. Make sure to keep the microwave at half power, so it doesn’t burn. Once it’s smooth, pour the chocolate over the graham crackers and spread them evenly.
- Marshmallows: Top the bark off with mini marshmallows and gently press them into the chocolate, so they stick to the top of the S’mores Bark.
- Set: Put the pan into the fridge for 30 minutes until nicely set.
- Cut: Once the bark is hardened, you can break it apart in a couple of ways. Run a butter knife under hot water to heat it up, then use it to cut through the chocolate to make it easy to break into squares. If you don’t care about your bark being in even pieces, you can also use a kitchen mallet or just your hands to break it.
VARIATIONS ON S’MORES BARK
- Chocolate: Instead of using milk chocolate chips, you can exchange the chocolate for semisweet, dark chocolate, or white chocolate chips. Of course, using different kinds of chocolate will make the S’mores Bark taste less like a classic S’more.
- Candies: There are lots of other toppings you can put on the chocolate bark along with or instead of the marshmallows. Try sprinkling some M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, or pieces of different chocolate bars to the top.
- Add-ins: For some crunchy additions that aren’t as sweet, try adding some walnuts, pistachios, almonds, or peanuts to the top of the candy bark. Sprinkle the add-ins while the chocolate is still melted, so it sticks into the chocolate.
