Lunchbox Smores Bars

Super easy Smores Bars with a graham cracker crust, milk chocolate chips, and toasted marshmallows that hold the bars together for a perfect lunchbox treat!

I'm just a WEE BIT in denial about Silas starting Kindergarten at the end of August. In a little over a month, we will be parents of a school-age child that I am currently certified to teach.

It's just weird, people!!

I'm really, really excited for him though. And OH BABY JESUS does he need it! We've been having a really fun summer, seriously the best one yet, but I'm finding that the busy out-of-routine days leave him a whiny, crying mess. I heard from his preschool teacher last year that the only thing he really needed to work on was paying attention and following directions. As a teacher, I'm going to level with you for a minute here parents so lean in close: not being able to "pay attention" and "follow directions" is THE MOST annoying thing for a teacher! AAnnnddd of course my son is THAT kid. 

It's a good thing he's cute. :)

In all seriousness though, he's really an absolutely amazing kid and he is the most loyal and thoughtful friend. He just needs to learn to sit down and listen when the teacher (AKA Mom) is reading a story. 

So I'm trying out some new lunchbox treats in honor of my amazing Silas going off to Kindergarten this year. It really doesn't count much for us since he'll be in half-day, but knowing him, he'll want me to pack him a lunch anyway to be just like the big kids. :)

Lunchbox Smores Bars

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

In a large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar, flour, and graham cracker crumbs. Press evenly into a 9 x 9 square baking dish that has been coated with non stick spray. Sprinkle chocolate chips and marshmallows evenly over top. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until the marshmallows are toasted brown. Cool completely before slicing and serving (TIP: spray a non serrated knife with nonstick spray before slicing). 

Yep, so pretty much that was what the plate looked like seconds after I said, "Ok boys, I'm done taking pictures." Haha!

Here are some more of my favorite smores recipes in honor of Smores Week:

Menu Plan Monday... On Tuesday! 7/22

Yes, yes I know I'm posting my Menu Plan Monday post on a Tuesday, but my first post of Smores Week was yesterday so I flipped it. Hope you don't mind. :)

We had such a busy, beautiful weekend! Paul was a groomsman for one of his good friends from college who got married on Saturday, and it was such a wonderful wedding. 

Obligatory selfie! I don't care how old you are, it's nice to play dress-up sometimes. :)

My favorite part of the ceremony was when Jason and Angela took the time to wash each other's feet - just like Jesus did with is disciples. What an example and a reminder of servanthood to your spouse! We were also able to see some friends of ours who we haven't seen and talked with in quite a while. It truly was so fun and such a blessing to me, I welcomed the little break from the boys - haha!

So here's the plan for the busy summer week ahead:

Copycat Olive Garden Pasta E Fagioli Soup

Feta & Grilled Veggie Turkey Burgers

Green Enchilada Chicken Soup

3 Cheese Breakfast Bake

Ranch Veggie Pizza


Dinner out!
