Enjoy a layer of deliciousness in the form of ooey gooey caramel to raise the bar on s'mores. With a thick layer of baked graham cracker crust, a layer of milk chocolate caramel, and a crunchy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside toasted marshmallow, these Caramel S'mores Bars are what dreams are made of!
Building a campfire doesn't lend itself to being quick and easy for busy families. So, let's bring the s'mores fun indoors and bake up a treat you can make any day of the week this summer.
These Caramel S'more Bars begin with a baked layer of graham cracker crust. It comes out thick and cookie bar-like which is just what we want.
We are adding creamy, luscious Ghirardelli chocolate with a thick layer of caramel filling on top of this baked crust.
Now, you can either add regular marshmallows along with the chocolate layer and bake to get them soft and gooey. Or, you can wait until the chocolate has baked a bit and add a layer of marshmallow fluff.
Don't skip the best part - toasting the marshmallow to get that crisp, charred outer layer. This can be done via broiler or kitchen torch.
Line your baking pan with parchment paper for easier clean up.
Instead of using the oven broiler to toast your marshmallows or marshmallow fluff in this recipe, you can use a kitchen torch.
