Did you know it's National S'mores Day? No, seriously! It is.
And you know any dessert that has it's own day needs to be celebrated. The right way. With lots and lots of dessert!
This past weekend I was lucky enough to join in on the fun that is the Hershey's Camp Bondfire suite at BlogHer12 and one of the best things about the suite was the endless supply of s'mores making goodies.
(ready for the most blurry picture ever??)

Hershey's chocolate, of course. Jet Puffed marshmallows and yummy Honey Maid graham crackers. The perfect way to relax and take a break from the crazy that is BlogHer. How did Hersheys know that they'd be such a perfect fit at a conference with 4,500+ women and 5 men? Genius!
So when I got back the one thing I continually craved (after two days of endless smores opportunities) were chocolate, melted marshmallow and toasted graham cracker. So I got in the kitchen and baked.
And the end product... well, it was totally worth it.
- 5 tablespoons of butter, cut into 1" pieces
- 4 ounces of Hersheys dark chocolate
- 2 ounces of Hersheys milk chocolate
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 cup crushed graham crackers (about 4 sheets)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Chop up chocolate. Layer 9" pan with foil (see my tip here) and coat foil with butter.
Place butter in a heat proof bowl and top with chocolate. Place over simmering water and heat until fully melted. Remove from heat.
Mix in sugar (don't worry if it turns grainy, that's normal).
Add eggs, one at a time. Whisk each egg in thouroughly before adding the other. Add vanilla and whisk to combine. Whisk a bit more to make sure everything is well incorporated. Add salt and flour into the mix and stir until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and top with marshmallows. Then top with graham cracker pieces.
Bake for 30-33 minutes. Top should be lightly browned and puffy.
Let cool completely before removing from pan. Marshmallow topping should settle down a lot while cooling. Then, lift foil and place on cooling rack. Carefully remove foil from edges. Cut into squares (warning: this will be very sticky!) and serve.
