Raspberry S’mores Pudding Bars

Raspberry S'mores Bars - these are super easy and perfect for summer!

I have been obsessed with raspberries this summer. Straight up obsessed.

This recipe is chockfull of them and they are so tart and perfect with the creamy chocolate pudding! You guys are going to love these bars.

I made a super thick graham cracker crust, because I’m sorry, but thin graham cracker crusts are not allowed around these parts. Got it? Thick crusts. They’re the way to go.

Then I mixed up a couple of packages of instant pudding, because I’m a cheater and didn’t want to make it from scratch. Don’t judge me.

Next up, lots of berries, because berries are the best. You could totally swap in strawberries if you wanted, but like I said. I’m straight addicted to raspberries. Someone call an intervention. No, wait. Don’t. I don’t want to stop.

Finally, because I’m nuts, I went ahead and topped these with roasty, toasty marshmallows. Ugh. I can’t even deal with the marshmallows. So good.

If you have a kitchen torch, you can just pop the marshmallows right on top of the pudding and go to town, roasting them like some super cool ninja marshmallow roaster.

If you don’t have a torch, just pop it all under your broiler and keep a super duper not even kidding about this close eye on them. The marshmallows go from perfect to scorched in about 0.3 seconds.

And, if you don’t have a torch or a broiler, well, sorry buddy. Leave the marshmallows off? Really, these are just as delicious without them.

Raspberry S'mores Bars

Yield: 12 bars

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
For the filling:
2 (3.8 ounces each) packages instant chocolate pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
1 pint raspberries
For the topping:
1 cup mini marshmallows

Directions:

To make the crust, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter. Press into a parchment lined 9x9 baking dish and bake for 7 minutes.
Let cool completely.
To make the filling, add the pudding mix to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the milk with a whisk and continue whisking until thickened, about 5 minutes.
Pour half of the filling on to the crust, top with half of the berries, cover with the remaining filling, and top with the remaining berries. Press the berries into the pudding.
Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
Top with the marshmallows and use a kitchen torch to roast them until lightly browned. Alternately, place the pan under the broiler and broil for about 1 minute or until the marshmallows are toasted. Keep a very close eye as they'll burn very quickly.
The marshmallows taste best if toasted just before serving, but leftovers can be stored in the fridge.

    I am actually SO pumped you used instant pudding. I always want to make pudding recipes but feel all this pressure to make homemade…but instant is so yum!
    Especially in a s’more bar with RASPBERRIES! Loving this! Pinned :)

    Raspberries are the BEST! Better than strawberries for sure. And are these bars for reals? They are perfect! Wish I had a few for breakfast right now :) Pinned! P.S. I ordered Quelf online and am SO excited! :)

    The roasted marshmallows on top push it over the edge in the delicious factor! Raspberry and Chocolate are the best together! Just a whole lotta yum!

    These bars look so amazing Karly, and I totally agree with you on the extra thick graham cracker crust. That’s a must! :)

    I already love you, but I love you even more since you said “thin crusts aren’t allowed”. BFFs forever!

    Oh my dear me. Yes please. Oh, and don’t even talk to me about thin crusts. It’s almost a friendship breaker. (My obsession this summer has been strawberries. Ob.sessed.)

    Completely agree that thin graham cracker crusts are not allowed! These look absolutely mouth watering! I’ve been on a real raspberry kick of late too and adding them with the already wonderful S’mores is a match made in heaven!

    A raspberry addiction is a fairly good addiction to have. I approve! Especially of those roasted mallows on top!
