Pumpkin S'mores Bars will be the talk of the party this holiday! The base is a thick layer of graham crackers smothered in melted chocolate and topped with creamy pumpkin pie filling. Add toasted marshmallows to the top as a finishing touch and get ready to sink your teeth into the most epic dessert.
There are many steps to pull the recipe together but it's easy and so worth the time. Do something different this holiday season and whip up a batch of pumpkin pie bars, s'mores style!
Today, I have another pumpkin dessert and it's pretty epic.
There are several steps involved in making these pumpkin s'mores bars. First, the crust needs to be assembled, baked, and cooled. Then, a layer of melted chocolate goes over the crust and that needs to freeze until it's set.
The pumpkin pie filling rests over the chocolate layer and needs to be baked until it's firm, which can take around 45 minutes. The cooked pumpkin bars will need at least three hours in the refrigerator after they've cooled to room temperature.
Now the bars can be cut into squares but they're not quite ready to eat yet. Top them with mini marshmallows and put them under the broiler for a couple seconds. You can also use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows.
Plan ahead when you decide to make the bars. They can be made in advance and store in the refrigerator without the marshmallow topping. This can save you time if you want to take them to a holiday party.
