Clothes that smell like campfire and pine needles. Night games played with flashlights and spooky stories told by starlight. A weekend camping trip is the perfect way to relax, unplug, and reconnect with the people you love. (Even if they didn’t seem super enthused initially about spending a weekend in the woods away from their phones.)
But since we can’t always escape to the mountains, gift the best part of camping, (we’re obviously talking about the S’mores here,) and help a favorite friend enjoy some delicious treats that can lure anyone away from their electronics and into the kitchen for some quality time, no wilderness required.
So forget the campfire! These quick and simple s’mores bars really are basically a party in a jar! Layered together in a Sweet Creations Gift Jar, graham crackers, chocolate, and mini marshmallows are gifted with instructions for turning these basic ingredients into rich, sweet S’mores

Forget the campfire! These quick and simple s’mores bars are like a party in a jar! Layered together in a Sweet Creations Gift Jar, graham crackers, chocolate, and mini marshmallows are gifted with instructions for turning these basic ingredients into rich, sweet S’mores
For the Jar
- 1 1/4 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups milk or semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- 1 1/4 cups mini marshmallows
Spoon the graham cracker crumbs into the bottom of a Sweet Creations Gift Jar. Gently spoon brown sugar on top of the graham cracker crumbs, and press the sugar down firmly. Pour chocolate chunks on top, tap the jar gently to flatten the layer. Top with mini marshmallows. Give the jar with the “How to Make S’mores Bars” instructions attached.
How to Make S’mores Bars
7 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
Remove marshmallows and chocolate chunks from the jar. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar and graham cracker crumbs from this jar with 7 tablespoons melted butter. Press into the bottom of an 8x8” baking sheet. Sprinkle chocolate chunks over the top of the graham cracker crust. Drizzle with sweetened condensed milk. Cover pan with foil and bake for 20-23 minutes, until the chocolate is melted. Remove foil, sprinkle marshmallows on top of bars. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes more, just until the marshmallows are barely golden. Remove and cool completely before slicing and serving.
