Nutella s’mores bars takes all that is good about a s’more, and makes it great.

They’re easy, they combine everybody’s favorite flavors, and the scent of warm graham and vanilla emanating from your oven will make you feel like a baking goddess. Up till now I haven’t done much with a s’mores theme on the blog. I’m not sure why, except that I’ve never really especially loved the original all that much to begin with. The marshmallow tends to be too bulky, the chocolate is usually mediocre, and the graham crackers are just, meh. There’s a better way, and this is it.

what makes these s’mores bars so fabulous

Just enough, but not too much, marshmallow oozes out from the folds of the soft and chewy brown sugar and graham cracker infused crust, and there’s a thick layer of Nutella underneath it all. (Nutella never disappoints.)

These bars combine all the best things about campfire s’mores into one easily, sliceable dessert.

how to layer up Nutella s’mores bars

  • Pulverize graham crackers into a fine meal. The food processor works great for this.
  • I mix the dough up right in the processor since I have it out anyway to make the graham cracker crumbs, but you can also do it by hand or with a hand held mixer.
  • Pat 2/3 of the dough in the bottom of a square baking pan.
  • Then top with the Nutella and marshmallow creme.
  • The rest of the dough gets crumbled over the top.
  • As the bars bake the marshmallow, the Nutella, and the dough melt together to form a very pretty pattern.

do you love the corners?

If you do, you’re in luck because the corners get nice and crisp/chewy. I’m a center cut girl all the way.

these are just what you’d hope for in a s’mores bar

They’re easy to put together, easy to cut, and they have a satisfying ooey gooey texture thanks to the chocolate hazelnut spread and the marshmallow creme. The graham and vanilla flavors linger in your mouth even after you’ve finished the last bite. That’s probably because the crust sticks to your teeth a little bit…in the very best way.

Please don’t let the summer pass you by without making a batch!

One of the nice things about these bars is that the neither the Nutella nor the marshmallow creme hardens, even as the bars cool down, so when you bite into them, you get that classic melty chocolate and stretchy marshmallow pull of a s’more hot from the campfire.

TIP: The easy way to line your pan with parchment is to set the pan on the paper and cut in to the corners, removing the extra squares. It will then fit perfectly into your pan with a built in ‘sling’ to make removing your bars super easy. Spray the pan lightly with cooking spray first to adhere the paper so it won’t slip around.

Equipment

  • 9×9 baking pan

Ingredients

  • 9 full sized graham crackers, which is one sleeve, or a heaping cup of crumbs
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 4 ounces marshmallow fluff (about 1/2 of a jar)

Instructions

  • Set the oven to 350F
  • Lightly spray a 9×9 baking pan. Line with parchment paper if you want to lift your bars out for easy slicing.
  • Grind the graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground. It helps to break them apart as you add them to the machine. Process until the mixture is very finely pulverized, with no lumps.
  • Mix the cracker meal with the flour and salt and set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla bean paste and blend well.
  • Add in the flour/graham mixture and fold in until well combined.
  • Press 2/3 of the dough into your baking pan. Using your fingers, spread the dough evenly across the pan so it covers the entire bottom.
  • Spread the Nutella over the dough.
  • Using a small spoon, dollop the marshmallow fluff evenly across the Nutella. You don’t need to spread it out, but try to get small dollops evenly distributed across the entire surface.
  • Crumble the remaining 1/3 of the dough over the top. Use your fingertips to break it apart into small pieces and scatter it evenly across the surface. Some of the marshmallow will peek through.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes until lightly golden and puffed up a bit.
  • Let cool before cutting if you want neat squares, but these are pretty amazing while they are still warm.

Cook’s notes

  • You might try using chocolate chips or small squares of milk or dark chocolate in place of the Nutella.
  • Peanut butter might also work in place of, or along with, the Nutella.

    Yumm! Totally delicious. Can really taste the graham crackers. I will make it again and again. The only issue is it was very buttery. There was actually liquid butter on the bottom and the crust did not stay together (when it was still warm). Hoping it stays together when it is cool. Curious if the Nutella added the extra oil.

      For this recipe, can marshmallows (miniature or large) be substituted for marshmallow fluff?

      You can absolutely keep these for a few days, we always do. I just keep them on the counter, loosely covered. Like most bars, the texture suffers a little bit after you cover and store them, so I still love them best the same day.

    These are scrumptious! They just replaced my usual caramel squares for camp visiting day. Even better, I so appreciate the way you model dealing with criticism that often doesn’t really make sense (they are too sweet? they have nutella and fluff…). They way you avoid making people wrong or defending yourself is admirable. Thank you!

    These are waaaaay too sweet. The nutella by itself is too much and the fluff gets hard and chewy after baking… i think this recipe can be improved although it does come out looking lovely

      You might check your oven temperature, Sonia, the marshmallow doesn’t get hard and chewy for me. And make sure you are getting enough of the crumbled dough over the top so that not much of the marshmallow is exposed. Hope this helps!
