Who doesn't love s'mores? The ultimate campfire snack coming to you in the form of bars. Think more chocolate with the soft sweetness of marshmallows all on top of a gooey graham cracker base.
All of the s'more without the campfire because let's be real, we don't always have access to a campfire and I'm not about to roast a marshmallow on the stovetop because it's just not the same!
Which is why these bars are perfect; all of the s'mores cravings satisfied without having to try to mimic the campfire experience.
Only 8 ingredients needed for these bars and if you're like me, then you might even have them on hand at all times. That's the best case scenario because I know all too well the feeling that I get when I really want to make a recipe but didn't prepare ahead of time and don't have the ingredients to make it. Ahhh, the struggle.
Sending good vibes to you as you read this hoping that you have everything you need in your pantry to get this into your mouth asap.
Oh, and an extra little tip if you're feeling fancy - you can toast the little marshmallows on top for bonus points. Trust me, it's worth it.

6 sheets of graham crackers
1 cup dates
