I love food. No really, I LOVE food. And I have a major sweet tooth. So you can see why this is my favorite time of year. Yep!
I decided to combine my love for the holidays, sweets, and camping and make some holiday s’mores. These use mini marshmallows and the oven to melt them.
I wish I could’ve used the Rolla Roaster….but because it’s winter it just wouldn’t have been practical to build a fire outside. Plus I live in an apartment and my neighbors probably wouldn’t appreciate it.
So there I was making these holiday s’mores and I decided to photograph the process so you can see how they turned out. I called today my s’more test kitchen. Because seriously….it was the first time I have made this, so this is the real raw footage!
They turned out so delicious! Super gooey-sugary-s’morey. Mmmmm.
I have a feeling my husband is going to make me package them and give them to our neighbors. We’ll see if I end up doing that.
Anyway, let’s get into the recipe.
First I actually adapted this recipe from the Land o’ Lakes website. Giving credit where credit is due.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Get out a 9 ½ x13 in pan and lay aluminum foil on the bottom and sides of it. Then I greased it with some oil.
Lay the bottom of the pan with graham crackers, so the sides are touching and the holes are up.
Set that aside, and then melt ¾ cup of butter along with ¾ cup of brown sugar in a saucepan on medium heat.
Cook until it’s bubbling but don’t let it go too long or it will burn.
After it gets all thick and bubbly, quickly pour it over the graham crackers evenly. If you need to use a spatula that’s OK.
Once the oven is preheated, bake the graham crackers covered with the sauce for six minutes. It will be even more bubbly when it comes out.
Sprinkle 3 cups of miniature marshmallows on top of the graham cracker crust. Then place back into the oven for another five minutes.
The marshmallows should be slightly melted when you bring them out. Then sprinkle one cup of red and green M&Ms all over the top of the marshmallows. Let it cool completely and cut into bars.

If you are doing a bonfire for Christmas, these are perfect to serve to guests…or making regular s’mores with the Rolla Roaster which is a lot of fun also!
