Caramel Nut S’mores Bars are everything you love about gooey, chocolate, marshmallow s’mores but with CARAMEL and your favorite nuts (like cashews – mmmm) and bonus – they are SUPER easy AKA great for crowds!
It is my husband’s birthday next week – the big 3-7 – wahoo! Its crazy to reminisce of our dating days when he was just a young whipper snapper with not a single gray hair. And then I would tweeze one or two and then 10-20 and then I just gave up – because after all, he earned them! – especially a few years ago when I was waiting for my kidney transplant. Oh how I love that sweet, hilarious, courageous, man! He is my rock, my soul mate, my everything. So before I get too mushy gushy, because I already did that in Our Love Story (click HERE), I introduce Easy Caramel Nut S’mores Bars in honor of Patrick, because S’mores are his favorite!
But wait – CARAMEL + NUTS + chocolate + graham crackers + marshmallows = TRUE LOVE!
And once I tell you how easy these Caramel Nut S’mores Bars are to make, you will be in ETERNAL LOVE! They literally take just minutes to whip together without any effort. I SO wish I would have made these before Christmas so I could have seen how easy they were instead of rolling cookie after cookie after cookie. Never again. Next year for Christmas its all about bars for gifting, these Caramel Nut Smore’s Bars. Merry Christmas to me.
To make, simply mix melted butter and graham cracker crumbs to make your crust and bake for 12 minutes, then pour caramel over the top which is simple and divine mixture of pre-made Kraft caramels and heavy cream.
And smear that silky goodness all over – and try not to eat it all.
Then gather your mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and any combination of nuts you like – 100% customizable. I mixed peanuts, pecans and cashews and it was my kind of perfection.
Layer over your caramel and bake for 12-ish minutes.
Just long enough for the chocolate and marshmallows to get a little ooey gooey melty and those marshmallows to roast to golden bonfire-like perfection. Without the burning charred bits part.
And then its time to dive mouth first into these Caramel Nut S’mores Bars.
And every chewy, chocolaty, nutty, caramel toasted marshmallow bite will leave you wanting s’more…
Happy S’mores in January and Happy Birthday to my Patrick! I can’t wait for s’more AMAZING years toether!
