Summer is the perfect time for s’mores and campfires. For those times you don’t have a campfire and still crave s’mores you’ve got to make this simple s’mores bark recipe. We made them as treats for Robert to give to friends on his last day of preschool and it was a hit. Check out this recipe and get a cute printable to make your own end of the school year treat bags.
I still can’t believe that Robert is finished with 3 year old preschool. This year went by way too fast. Here he is on his last day.
Since Robert and I love making treats in the afternoon while Jackson naps, we decided to make s’mores bark last week. It was perfect timing because when we had way too much to eat ourselves so we decided to give them as end of the year treats to all of Robert’s friends. Complete with super cute printable tags.
It’s probably no surprise to find out that I’m super cheap when it comes to end of the school year gifts. Instead of giving the teachers expensive gifts, I gave them $10 gift cards to Target and these treats. As a former teacher I remember loving gift cards the most. That and sweet treats like s’mores bark.
I have to admit that I’m not usually a fan of bark recipes because they have so much sugar. The s’mores bark recipes seems better to me because if I wasn’t eating the bark, I’d still be eating the s’more. Might as well make it into bark, right? Totally makes sense in my head!
The recipe is so easy that even a preschooler can do it. Well, maybe not the melted chocolate, but they could easily add the marshmallows and graham crackers. Check out this video to see how easy it is.
Here’s the recipe so you can make it yourself.
- 1 bag of mini marshmallows
- 1 package (24 oz) of chocolate almond bark
- 1 C. of broken graham crackers
- Melt bark in microwave according to package instructions.
- Line a casserole dish with wax paper.
- Place half the marshmallows in the casserole dish.
- Pour chocolate into the dish and add the remaining marshmallows and graham crackers on top.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour then break apart into pieces.
Turn these treats into cute end of the year gifts by putting them in a bag and adding a tag. Download this printable tag here.
Robert enjoyed handing out his treats to his friends at school!
Even though I’m super excited about summer vacation, I’m starting to get a little worried about not having much to do with the kids this summer. Maybe we will cook up some more sweet treats. My pregnancy cravings would agree with that!
Are you excited for summer vacation too?
