Foodista Cookbook: No Bake Frozen S’more Bars

by Tokyo Terrace on November 28, 2010

I realize that many of you are probably still feeling full from heaping plates of Thanksgiving turkey, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and ladlefuls of gravy. If that is the case, you may want to turn away and revisit this post when you are feeling hungry again. On the other hand, it doesn’t hurt to look, right?

After making Scotch Eggs from the Foodista Cookbook, Brad and I decided we had to make these No Bake Frozen S’more Bars. I mean, no baking? Yes please! And since they are frozen, you can keep them in the freezer for the perfect surprise dinner party dessert.

I found the bars to be easy to make, full of wonderful flavors (how can you go wrong with marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate?) and delightfully delicious to look at. I had to make one substitution- I couldn’t find graham crackers here in Tokyo, so I bought some waffle-like cookies that worked beautifully. They were crunchy and added the perfect amount of textural contrast. The addition of vanilla yogurt, though unexpected, adds a nice tang to the chocolate to cut through some of the richness.

I’m gonna be honest- this dessert is not for the faint of heart. It is rich, gets all over your fingers, and it is very addicting. You’ve been warned! Click here for the recipe: http://www.foodista.com/recipe/F83XLSFV/no-bake-frozen-smores-bars.

    Oooo! I like that there’s no baking involved and being able to pull these out of the freezer, when needed. Great dessert to have on hand!

    I’ll have to try these! I live in Kobe, and often use FBC – Foreign Buyers Club (we have a store nearby, but you can also order online and have it delivered). Some things are a bit expensive, but when you really want things, like graham crackers, you can get them! (I just got some last week to simplify my “gingerbread” houses. Also, Tokyo Hands has crushed graham crackers in their bakers’ section if you have one close by (I think they are all over Japan).

    Neat toppings. Looks quite sinful. ;) It might just be me….but I enjoy a treat more when it’s messy and requires finger licking….ehehehe.

    Isn’t it great? Living in Japan (without a real oven) can be frustrating when you feel the need to bake something, but these are the perfect solution!

    I’ve heard good things about FBC but have yet to try it out. I guess when I say I couldn’t find graham crackers, I meant at my local grocery store :) Next time I’ll try getting them from the Foreign Buyers Club! Thanks for your comment!

    Great idea! Too bad it isn’t my recipe- I’d feel bad taking that opportunity from another blogger. Will leave it to them!

    I bet kids all over the world would love this as a snack… and their parents would despise the person who served it :D

    So true! They are pretty messy but totally worth it for the finger licking!

    These look wonderful! I have a not-so-secret obsession with chocolate + marshmallow desserts, and these look marvelous. I wonder how angry the fiance would be if I kept a batch of these permanently in the freezer…hmmm
