I concocted these a few years ago and they are the perfect treat for a camping excursion. One of my favorite camping recipes for snack time, these bars are chock full of good stuff – whole grain cereal, almonds, cranberries, oats and more. Cook up a batch before you leave, let is sit overnight and watch your campers gobble it down.

Camping Recipe: Keebler Elves S’mores Recipe

July 1, 2013 in Dessert Recipes by amylaree

This is one of the easiest and (for me) most nostalgia-inducing unique s’mores recipes we’ve come up with to date. I’m usually a big snob when it comes to cookies – they’ve got to be homemade… that is until it comes to the Keebler Elves Fudge Stripes cookies. I’m a sucker for those cookies and when a good friend casually mentioned they’d make good s’mores, it was like a revelation from the heavens! The firm shortbread cookie already drenched in chocolate is the perfect holder for an ooey, gooey marshmallow!

Give it a try and let us know what you think!
