Easy S’mores Bark Recipe – homemade with just 3 ingredients, on a budget alternative for fancy store bought s’mores bark, ready in minutes, perfect for summer.
If you are a chocolate lover like me, you are going to like this super simple to make s’mores bark.
S’mores is a sweet snack consisting of a chocolate bar and toasted marshmallows sandwiched between graham crackers.
On one of my trips to Costco this summer, I discovered this amazing S’Mores Bark that they sell and decided to try it. This thing was so good, but the bag was half full and it cost around $12. So I decided to make my own at home.
Melted semi-sweet, dark or milk chocolate, with crunchy honey graham crackers and fluffy mini marshmallows. Layer on parchment paper of a Silpat mat, chill and break into pieces. It is that easy to make.
We may not be by the campfire, but we can still enjoy a fun S’mores treat.
What is chocolate bark?
Chocolate bark is a sheet of chocolate, usually covered with nuts, dried fruits, candies or in this case marshmallows and graham crackers. This broken into pieces and enjoyed as a sweet treat.
What chocolate can I use to make S’mores bark?
You can use milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate to make S’mores Bark. The one I got at Costco was made with milk chocolate and tasted pretty good.
We are huge fans of dark chocolate in our house, so I’ll definitely be making this with dark chocolate, but fir the recipe I used semi-sweet chocolate.
How to temper chocolate
You may have heard the term “tempering chocolate”, but what does it really mean?
Tempering is improving the texture and stability if the chocolate by properly heating and cooling it.
This gives the chocolate smooth, glossy, candy like finish and makes it more stable so it doesn’t melt in your hands easily, chocolate also gets that “snap” when you break it into pieces.
This is an optional step. You can just melt the chocolate without tempering, but the bark may easily melt in your hands, once cooled.
Here is how to temper the chocolate for this easy S’mores Bark:
- Chop the chocolate. Place two-thirds of the chocolate in the top pan of a double boiler. Heat over hot but not boiling water, stirring constantly, until chocolate reaches 115°F.
- Place the top pan of the double boiler on a towel. Cool chocolate to 95°–100°F. Add the rest of the unmelted chocolate to the top pan, stirring until melted. This chocolate is now ready to be used in the S’mores bark.
