No-Bake S'Mores Bars

(Family Features) - When you need to bring a dessert to a springtime gathering, but you're not sure how many people will attend, a bar cookie is a great option. Like the proverbial "loaves and fishes," bar cookies can feed the few or the many.

A pan of bar cookies can be cut into large pieces for fewer people or small pieces for a bigger crowd. If necessary, you can wait to cut them until you see how many you'll need to serve. They arrange easily on a pretty dessert platter or glass cake stand.

Bar cookies are favorites at bridal and baby showers, backyard barbecues, springtime potluck dinners, graduations, Father's Day feasts or family reunions. One of the most popular is based on classic American s'mores, those campfire confections of toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers.

No-Bake S'Mores Bars are easy enough for kids to make and have a little fun in the kitchen. Milk chocolate morsels melt into rich cream to coat fluffy miniature marshmallows and graham cracker pieces. All you do then is press the mixture into a pan and refrigerate until firm.
