Servings 16 People


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1¼  cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 graham crackers, crushed into crumbs
  • 2 4 oz chocolate bars (the extra-large, extra-thick size)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme


  • Combine the butter and both the sugars. Beat with an electric hand mixer until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth
  • Mix in the baking powder, flour and salt
  • Stir in the graham cracker crumbs
  • Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and press half of the graham cracker mixture into its base
  • Place a single layer of chocolate bars on top
  • Now spread an even layer of peanut butter and top it off with a layer of marshmallow creme
  • Spread the remaining graham cracker dough at the top
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F or 180°C for 30 minutes till the top becomes golden brown
  • Let it cool completely before cutting it into bars to serve


  • If you find gooey stuff a little hard to eat or want the bars to be clean at the edges, you can chill the baking dish overnight before cutting the bars.
  • Give the recipe a nutty twist by using chocolate bars with nuts instead of the plain variety
  • Endow the dessert with extra crunch by adding ¼ cup of finely chopped pecans to the crushed graham crackers
  • Sprinkle raisins over the graham cookie crust before adding the chocolate

Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. The snack is perfect for carrying to a potluck or a lake for a cabin weekend. I had once baked it for a friend who just had a baby and she completely forgot that the little one needed her attention as she was busy indulging in the unique blend of creaminess and crunchiness of the s’mores bars!
