These S’mores Bars are Made with Frozen Yogurt and SO Good!
Easy desserts (like these Ritz s’mores) make me smile.
These super-easy frozen yogurt s’mores bars are no exception!
Yes, I did say frozen and s’mores in the same sentence.
Doesn’t that sound ahh-mazing?
Desserts are meant to be indulgent, but don’t you love it when you can throw in a healthy twist?
Hey — everyone needs some extra doses of yogurt sometime, right?

HOW TO MAKE S’MORES BARS:
#1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Don’t use a higher temperature because these bars are heat sensitive!
#2: Stir sugar into crushed graham cracker crumbs.
Feel free to use brown sugar for a richer crust.
You can also make this gluten free by using gluten free graham crackers!
#3: Add melted butter and stir.
If your crust mix is too crumbly and dry, add a tablespoon or two of additional melted butter.
#4: Press crumbly mixture into one glass, 13×9 baking pan.
You can use another size pan if needed. A 13×9 pan ensures you get bars instead of weirdly shaped pieces. :)
#5: Sprinkle three cups of marshmallows on top of crust.
Add a few more handfuls if you dare!
#6: Bake for eight minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown.
This will smell amazing!
#7: Remove from oven and allow pan to cool completely.
Don’t cut corners on this step! Definitely wait until the pan is cool before moving on.
#8: Mix chopped chocolate, graham cracker pieces into yogurt until smooth.
Drooling yet? I know…we’re almost done! :)
#9: Spread and sprinkle!
Spread filling into cooled pan and sprinkle with leftover toppings (no yumminess left behind!)
#10: Freeze until firm.
You want these bars to be pretty and servile, so definitely wait at least 4 hours before serving!
For Better S’mores Bars We Suggest the Following:
Make sure you grab vanilla-flavored yogurt of this recipe.
I would not use Greek yogurt in this recipe because of the extra strong flavor.
I’m a fan of Greek yogurt — huge fan — but it doesn’t pair well with a dessert bar recipe.
But grab a smooth, vanilla-flavored yogurt and you’re ready to go!
Want to make a gluten-free version?
Sub out the graham crackers with crushed gluten-free pretzels.
Just make sure you freeze the crust before adding the yogurt.
It adds a fun salty crunch to any dessert bar recipe!
Also substitute the pretzels in the filling as well.
Just an easy, gluten-free hacks to keep everyone happy!
