Guest Post: Smore's Bark

Hi there! My name is Beth and that is my hunky husband Ryan.

 You can find me over at The First Year Blog, where I share recipes, crafts, and insight into our first year of marriage (10 months and counting!). I was super excited when Shannon contacted me about teaming up, I love making blogger friends! And I have something super fun to share with you!!

S'mores Bark - The First Year Blog #SmoresBark

This is a very quick recipe, less than 10 minutes to make.. which means you get to enjoy it sooner!

S'mores Bark Ingredients
1 pound milk chocolate (chocolate chips are great)
2 tsp vegetable oil, to help melt the chocolate
1 cup broken graham crackers
1 cup marshmallows
You can always add more grahams and marshmallows!

Directions Line a 9 X 13 inch cake pan with parchment paper, don't skip this step thinking you can just use cooking spray.. I tried on one pan and it didn't release the bark. Leave some overhang, so the parchment paper goes up on the sides of the pan.

Next you want to melt the chocolate, I like to do that in the microwave. Put the chocolate chips in a microwaveable bowl along with 2 tsp of vegetable oil. Melt the chocolate by 30 second intervals, stirring each time. Once the chocolate is melted, pour it into the prepared pan making a flat, even layer.

Now add the marshmallows and broken graham crackers, pushing each one into the chocolate. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. Then peel off the parchment paper and break the bark into pieces. Store in the refrigerate until you're ready to serve it.

Adapted from Martha Stewart This recipe is a very simple twist on gooey s'mores, although nothing beats a toasty marshmallow and melty chocolate! Be sure to stop by my blog and check out Shannon's guest post!
