A couple weeks back I asked for ideas about what to make with 2 lbs of mini Lucky Charms-esque marshmallows, and I got some great suggestions in the comments. And now I’m reporting back with the first project!
I’m calling this S’mores Bars Party Style. I followed Joy the Baker’s recipe for S’mores Icebox Candy Bars, suggested by Suzanne, and I just substituted the colorful marshmallows for the standard mini white variety. (That’s what makes it “party style.”)
Note to self: Wax paper may not always be an OK substitute for parchment paper.
The results were interesting—not exactly delicious, but kind of addictive. I think this has less to do with marshmallows and everything to do with 3+ sticks of butter. If I hadn’t told our guests that these were supposed to be reminiscent of s’mores, I don’t think they would have gotten that. It actually could have used more marshmallows, although I felt like I used more than the recipe called for.
This might be ideal as a super-easy sleepover treat. It was also pretty great paired with gourmet ice cream. I’m calling it a moderate success.
Thank you to Suzanne for her suggestion! I’d love to find more to make with my marshmallows. What should I make next? Let’s make the next project a little more out there!
