S’mores Icebox Bars

Man Oh Man. I'm not sure what's up with me a my S'mores cravings lately (see S'mores: Cupcake Style). Maybe it's the absolute perfect combination of crunchy and soft, chocolaty and sweet, oooey and gooey. And totally delicious.
These hit the spot and were gone. GONE. In 2 days. No evidence they ever existed. Insanely simple (which definitely contributed to how wonderful they tasted), these are perfect for really any occasion...or craving.

Make these!!!
