Red Velvet S'mores Bars
There's nothing better than s'mores during the holidays. There's something whimsical about sitting out by the fire with family friends when it's cold outside. These aren't your typical s'mores though. I'm giving you all the goodness about s'mores, the gooey marshmallows, the melted chocolate, the graham cracker texture but we're adding in some brownies, red velvet and a sprinkling of peppermint, plus there's no need for a fire. Although, they are the perfect treat for sharing.
The holidays are always crammed with gatherings, from friends coming over to spread the cheer, cookie exchanges, holiday dinners and more, it can be overwhelming making something each time from scratch. What I LOVE about these bars is they are so quick and simple to make, you'll spend more time eating them with friends, than making them.
I modified a recipe from my good friend over at Picky Palate. What I did was sub out the chocolate chips for Dove Milk Chocolate Promises, which added a creaminess to the layers of the bars. To top off the bars, I added in some M&M’S Peppermint White Chocolate, to have more of a holiday flavor throughout the bars. M&Ms and Dove bags are great for baking and holiday parties! They're super simple to sub into so many recipes and you'll get a great flavor from baking with them. Plus, you could make some of these and they could be the perfect add-on gift for friends, family, neighbors or co-workers!
