S'more no-bake bars is a twist to an old-time family recipe, we call Pollock Fudge. I'm not really sure why it is called that in our family, when most people call them no-bake cookies, but it is what we grew up saying. I decided to switch this recipe up with three flavors that Americans love… chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows.
S'more No-Bake Bars
When my kids caught me in the kitchen experimenting with a new idea for a dessert, they got so excited to see that I was putting two of their favorite desserts into one.
I grew up making the Pollock Fudge, whenever my dad desired it to be made. He always wanted to clean out the pan, because he loved the taste of the warm dessert. It was so disappointing to not get to enjoy that all to myself, after making it, but my dad always made me feel good with his compliments of how good it tasted.
As I approached my Senior year in a private school, I had to take Pollock Fudge for frequent bake sales, and it always sold out first.
So when I had a family of my own, I brought out my sauce pan and introduced them to an old family favorite. It quickly became a go-to recipe if a sweet tooth hit us. Now, I get to enjoy the warm dessert scrapings of the pan while the rest is cooling in the pan. However, when my daughter learned to make it herself, I passed on the joy of cleaning the pan before putting it in the skin.
After she recently made me our Pollock Fudge recipe, I started to get inspired for a twist. I know they would love it!
This is just as easy to make, too!
How to Make S'more No-Bake Bars
In a medium to large saucepan, melt 2 sticks of butter on medium heat. Once it is melted, add 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of Dutch Process Cocoa and Evaporated Cane Sugar. Continue to stir this together until it comes to a boil.
Stop stirring, and boil for 5 minutes.
While the mixture is boiling, butter or spray a 9X13 pan. Get the following ingredients ready (don't add yet):
- 4 Cups of Golden Graham Cereal
- 1 Cup of Marshmallow Fluff (spray the measuring cup first for it to come out clean)
- 2 Cups of Miniature Marshmallows
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Once the 5 minutes is up, remove pan from the heat and add the vanilla and Marshmallow Fluff. Stir quickly until it is completely melted. Add the cereal, and stir. Gently fold in the miniature marshmallows, and quickly add to the prepared pan.
Cool completely. Cut and store in air tight container.
These bars are so easy to make, and a hit with the family. You will definitely want a big glass of milk to go with it, because these are very sweet.
