Do you remember that Chocolate Saltine Toffee I made a while back? It is seriously addicting and I am happy to share with you today a twist on that recipe just in time for the 4th of July! I have been wanting to make something S’mores related (tis the season, after all) but I didn’t really want to bake anything like S’more cupcakes or whatever. This does go in the oven but it is no fuss and you can throw it together in no time.
S’mores Toffee Bark includes graham crackers smothered with brown sugar toffee, chocolate and then topped with melty marshmallows. Yes!
My recipe is based off of one from I Thee Cook
About 16 graham cracker squares (2 sleeves)
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
6 Hershey’s chocolate bars, broken into pieces
1 bag of mini marshmallows
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay out graham crackers into a tight grid, gently touching each other to fill the entire pan.
In a saucepan, melt together the butter and brown sugar over low heat. Whisk regularly until melted and combined. Allow the mixture to bubble (raising the temperature if necessary), then boil for 3-5 minutes until thickened.
Pour the melted sugar mixture evenly over the graham crackers. Spread with a spatula or the back of a large spoon to cover all the crackers as evenly as possible.
Place the pan into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate over the surface of the toffee. Let the chocolate sit for 1-2 minutes to get soft and melty before using a spatula to spread the melted chocolate evenly over the toffee and all the way to the edges of the pan.
Sprinkle the marshmallows over the melted chocolate.
Turn on the oven’s broiler setting. Place the pan with marshmallows back into the oven under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, until the marshmallows toast up.
Once toasted to perfection, allow the bark to cool, then place in the fridge to set for at least one hour. Once it’s set, snap it into pieces using a strong knife or your hands.
Store squares in the fridge or freezer.
This is how you want to lay out the crackers and cover them fully with toffee.
The chocolate sprinkled on and then spread with a spatula.
My marshmallows toasted up in just 1 minute – watch them carefully!
You could break these up more evenly with a knife but I like my rustic looking ones I broke apart with my fingers.
Enjoy this sweet treat that adults and kids will love! What is a more American treat than some amped up S’mores? Happy 4th of July America!!
