Homemade Mallomar Bars

My obsession with S'mores-like treats continues. My sister sneakily pinned a recipe for Homemade Mallomar Bars from Serious Eats thinking she could get to these bad boys before me! Well I repinned these quicker than lightning, and whipped up a batch to take with me for dinner with a friend over the weekend.

The Verdict:  These are the perfect treat for a s'mores enthusiast. The Mallomar Bars are comprised of a graham cracker crust, marshmallow middle, and topped off with a layer of chocolate ganache to make a rich, yet light and airy dessert. This ensures you can eat a rather large portion at dessert time (or snack or breakfast time. Hey, no judging here). Don't be scared of whipping up the marshmallow if you've never done so before. It's easier than it looks granted you have a stand or hand mixer. I wouldn't attempt this part by hand. The chocolate you use will make or break these bars, so splurge and get your favorite kind. I went with Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate, which helped cut the sweetness of the middle layer. If milk chocolate is more your thing though, go for it!

Now is the perfect time to pin these as Nabisco's version is generally unavailable from May to September. Bring these with you to your next dinner party to ensure you'll be invited back!

Wave your dog in the air like you don't care. Fly around little pup as they start to look and stare. Eat your treat, eat your treat, eat your treat quick mamma. Come on puppy, tell me what's the word.
