S’mores Christmas Bark
OMG! I wish I had thought of this years ago! You won’t believe how delicious this Christmas Bark is! It combines all the things you love about s’mores with all the things you love about chocolate bark. Yep, this S’mores Christmas Crack is all it’s cracked up to be! (sorry, couldn’t help myself!)
I was working on baking up all my Christmas cookies, like my favorite Chocolate Chip Macaroon Cookies and Peppermint KissThumbprint Cookies, to give to friends and neighbors for Christmas and thought it would be fun to experiment with something that was totally new. Enter my secret addiction to s’mores! (shhh, don’t tell anyone)
I love how the chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers in a s’mores treat always come together so deliciously. My dilemma was how to put all these flavors into one easy to make chocolate treat? Then I hit the jackpot! I found what Nestle’s calls “Our Morsel of the Year” S’mores Morsels Mix in the grocery store and the idea of a S’mores Christmas Bark just jumped out at me.
FAQs About Christmas Bark
How long does S’mores Bark last?
Well mine doesn’t hang around very long but it should keep at room temp (in a cool place) for 1-2 weeks and in the refrigerator, tightly sealed, about 2-3 months.
Can Christmas Crack be frozen?
Yes you can actually freeze this bark. Just break it apart then place in airtight container in freezer. Bring to room temperature prior to serving.
How do you break apart this Christmas Crack?
Once the bark has cooled sufficiently just use your hands to break into pieces. I like to put mine in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or more then break apart as it keeps the chocolate more intact. You can also break it apart by covering with foil then hitting it with the back of a wooden spoon.
Make Your Own S’mores Christmas Crack
First, how to use that all important s’mores ingredient, graham crackers. I decided to replace the saltines or pretzels in a regular bark with graham crackers. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper then lay the graham crackers in a single layer on top.
Place the butter and sugar together in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let cook 3-5 minutes.
Pour over the top of the graham crackers. Place in oven for 5 minutes.
For the topping, I brought in the flavors of the marshmallows and chocolate with a new Nestle mixture called S’mores morsel mix. Remove the caramel covered graham crackers from the oven and sprinkle with morsels. Let the morsels sit for about 3-5 minutes then spread evenly over top.
Sprinkle warm chocolate immediately with sprinkles then let cool either on the counter or, for faster results, in the refrigerator.
Break apart and indulge! This S’mores Christmas Bark came out even better than I expected! It was crunchy from the toffee, the grahams stayed crisp, and the flavor of the marshmallows and chocolate were the perfect combination. If I made it again I might even try mixing my own marshmallows and chocolate chips for an even more marshmallowy flavor.
So get baking and get ready for this delicious taste sensation! It’s so easy to make (you’d better double the recipe, just sayin’) because it is just as addictive as the original. If you’re a s’mores lover or a Christmas crack lover this S’mores Christmas Crack is for you! Enjoy!
