Last month, my mom had her annual Valentine’s Day party. All the kids (my siblings and I) were asked to bring a yummy Valentines-ish treat. I brought my favorite pink Cherry Chocolate Fruit Dip. My sister in laws brought pink popcorn and a strawberry cheesecake. The dessert table was totally pink, red, and fancy. And, then there were these big, fat, globby, brown wads sitting in the midst. I didn’t think much of them until I saw Dan totally downing one, telling me, with his mouth full, that I had to try them. I did. It was awesome. I probably had three or four…or seven. In fact, I didn’t eat anything pink or red all night long. Before I left, I knew I had to get the recipe, so I start asking all the girls which of them brought the brown stuff. Lo and behold, it was my new brother in law, Trevor. A dude! I know I shouldn’t be so impressed, but in my family the guys don’t make much more than toast. So, asking him for the recipe was a foreign experience. I liked it.
Anyway, he emailed me the recipe for these S’mores Bars. I’m sure it’s nothing new in the recipe world, y’all have probably had them before. But, I love them. It was my first, and I need more. I heart chewy stuff.
