Happy Bonfire Night! What better way to warm up inside after a night of bonfires and fireworks than with a chocolatey and marshmallow-y treat. This Baked Smores Recipe is one of the easiest bakes I’ve ever made. A buttery biscuit base with a thick layer of chocolate and topped with toasted marshmallows. Best of all, it’s fire free and can all be baked in your oven.
This is best eaten warm but you can leave it to cool and cut them into bar sized treats! You can also have it as a supply of snacks throughout the week for the kids or give them away as gifts! Perfect to give at Christmas! (Yes, I’m already thinking about Christmas). Is it healthy? Not at all, but with everything going on in the world right now, I think we deserve a little treat!
I love smores! There’s nothing better than snuggling up by a fire, roasting marshmallows and chomping on a delicious sticky treat. But that’s just it! Traditional smores are sticky and messy and an open fire around small kiddos is not always the best idea. This is the perfect alternative that can be baked in your oven at home! Mess free (until the kids get their hands on it) but more importantly, safer!
Baked Smores Recipe
Perfect Bonfire Night snack or leave to cool to create a delicious traybake treat!
- 120 g plain flour
- 35 g rolled oats
- 100 g digestive biscuit crumbs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 114 g butter melted
- 150 g light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 4 milk chocolate bars
- 30 marshmallows
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C Fan) 350°F and grease and line 8×8 inch tin.
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats, biscuit crumbs, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, beat together the melted butter and sugar until smooth. Add the egg and mix well until fully combined.
- Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix together with a wooden spoon or spatula.
- Once mixed, spread into the greased tin evenly. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
- Leave to cool on a wire rack (still in the tin) for 10-15 minutes.
- While still slightly warm, cover the top of the base with chocolate bars. Break them up to create an even layer.
- Top with marshmallows, again in an even layer.
- Place into the oven to grill (either set your oven to grill or place the dish on the top shelf of the oven). WATCH the bake carefully. You want it cooked enough that the marshmallows and chocolate melt slightly and the top of the marshmallow turns golden brown. This should take between 3-10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and serve warm or allow it to cool to be cut into bars.
I cut mine up into bars and love to have them in the evening, after Olivia is in bed, with a warm drink. My evening treat, like a pat on the back for surviving another day in Lock Down!
Stay safe out there and take care of yourselves! x
