Chocolate Marshmallow Bars are a marshmallow lovers dream. Enrobed in chocolate--who couldn't love it?
Have I mentioned before how much I love marshmallows? The more colourful the better. The more "melty" the better.
When they get all warm and soft it melts my heart. I cannot resist any recipe that uses marshmallows.
Toss some chocolate in with those marshmallows and I've moved into the swooning stage. There is something about combining marshmallows with chocolate that just makes people happy.
I think everyone feels that way about chocolate and marshmallows. It goes back to childhood memories if you ask me.
Who doesn't remember eating s'mores as a kid? That first taste of chocolate and melting marshmallows is amazing.
I bet you're thinking about s'mores right now, aren't you? Sorry about that. Now focus, people.
This is not s'mores. It's better than s'mores. Why? Because you won't smell like campfire after you nosh on these.
This recipe is super simple. I mean SUPER simple.
Like it should wear a cape. That kind of super. It's incredibly easy to make.
There are only 3 ingredients. I know, right? I know it sounds crazy, but it's true.
It is really quick to make too. You can make it on the stove top, or you can make it in the microwave.
Either way works. I prefer to make mine on the stove. I just like having a bit more control over the process.
If you decide to make it on the stove you have two options. You can use a double boiler if you have one.
I do not have one. I know, I know.
Sort of odd for a food blogger not to have proper gear. I've just never invested in one.
For those of you who do not own a double boiler there is a way to replicate it. Use a saucepan, fill it partway with water, then put a heat-safe bowl over top, making sure not to let the bottom of the bowl touch the top of the water.
Using the make shift version has always worked really well for me. Just bring the water to a boil, place the bowl on top and melt everything more slowly.
I find it's less likely to scorch the chocolate this way.
This recipe is something I've been making since I was a teenager. I have no recollection where I learned to make it.
Cookbook, a friend, or maybe I was desperate for a chocolate bar and got creative. I wish I knew which.
It's basically just a peanut free rocky road. I love peanuts, but not a big fan of combining them with marshmallows for some reason.
So this is my version of rocky road, peanut-free and gooey like crazy.
So if you like ooey, gooey, melty marshmallows this recipe is for you. If you dig peanuts, toss some in there.
No biggie. Just do your thing, get as creative as you want, or keep it simple like me. Your choice.
However you make it I suggest you double-batch it. This stuff disappears fast. I'm not pointing any fingers or anything. Mostly because those fingers would be pointed in my direction.
