S’mores: Crunchy graham crackers, gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate. Who doesn’t love s’mores?! And it’s just as good as s’mores bark.

True to form for this mama, I was creating 4th of July goodies on the 4th.  It doesn’t matter how much I try to work ahead, the creative juices don’t start flowing until I’m in the moment of whatever is happening!  Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Memorial Day…you name it.  It’s not until I’m sitting in the home with all the right smells and sights that my brain gets into gear!

Well this year, ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, we were driving to berry picking.  On our trip, my daughter said she’d been making a list of different kinds of chocolate barks for each season and holiday.  I absolutely loved the idea.  So as she was talking, we both looked at each other and said at the same time, “S’MORES BARK!”  

We already had all the ingredients for these s’mores bark, so we immediately went to work after berry picking to have them ready for our evening BBQ with the fireworks and berries and whipped cream.  

I’ve got the how to for ya in my Instagram stories, so feel free to head over to my highlights to check it out!  

There is something about the taste of s’mores that brings out all the good feelings.  It’s summer and friends and warm nights and the luxury of a treat all wrapped into one!  

So today I’m going to give you two recipes.  One is completely sugar free, dairy free, grain free, and gluten free, while the other contains a little sugar due to the already made graham crackers and marshmallows.  This is a super fun treat for kids, and the making process is pretty simple and a blast to do in the kitchen together.  You’ll want to do lots of licking off of the marshmallow fluff and melted chocolate.  That’s an absolute must!  

This first recipe is totally homemade in every bite, so you’ll probably want to make the marshmallows and graham crackers ahead of time.  And keep your kids around for the marshmallows so they can watch them turn into a huge pile of fluff!  

 

S’MORES BARK

Recipe #1 – completely grain free, gluten free, sugar free, and dairy free

  2. Cut the marshmallow into desired chunks to place onto the bark.
  3. Next, place parchment paper over a flat baking sheet that will fit in your freezer.
