Ooey Gooey S'mores Bars
The minute I see leaves falling, I immediately crave cozy recipes. It is full fall ahead in Maryland and I feel like you need these ooey gooey s'mores bars in your life. I love everything about these bars, they're super easy to make and oh so comforting.
I love to make s'mores over a fire or even over the stove, but our house is only on electric. So baking these in the oven satisfies all the s'mores craving... of which there are a lot!
The s'mores bars first jumped into my dessert rotation in college, it made me very popular with my roommates. Now I can't remember the recipe I used in college, so I looked at a bunch online and tried to find one that was similar. I found a recipe on Land O' Lakes' website, and with a couple modifications, I'm super happy with how they turned out.
Thinking back to my college days is dredging up a memory... I once cooked a Friendsgiving for 25 people in my tiny dorm room kitchen and I had to use the kitchen of my neighbors as well. It was quite the feat running between two apartments, and the turkey was not cooked in time... but plenty of fun was had by all. I don't think we intended for it to be such a big gathering, but when you have 3 girls living together and you each invite a few people... plus I had to invite the neighbors of course... well it gets out of hand quickly.
But I think that shows a long about how feeding others is my love language. No one will ever leave hungry from my house. Seeing someone enjoy my food fills my cup more that me enjoying the food. I guess that's why I love seeing you all make my recipes in your homes and for your families. In a time when we aren't seeing friends and family as much, it's like I get to join in your celebrations with you. So if you ever make a recipe of mine, tag me or shoot me a message.
