S'more Nut Bars

I decided on the recipe because for as long as I can remember I have loved S'mores. I just love the gooey marshmallows paired with the melting chocolate it is to die for. So, when I saw this recipe I knew I had to do it. I made this yesterday and I liked it, but it was not exactly what I imagined. It did not have the gooey marshmallow with the melting chocolate so right there I was a little disappointed. I think a more accurate name would be "Rocky Road Bars".

I have a few comments. Since I don't really like peanuts I changed it to walnuts and it was great you could probably do any nut of choice. I actually added a little salt to the recipe since my nuts were not lightly salted, but I think I could have done without. Also, I thought the dark chocolate was a little over powering and I love milk chocolate so in the future I would make it with just milk chocolate. Finally, I think in the future I would have either cut up more marshmallows or cut them smaller, because there were times when I had a few bites of just chocolate and I think it needs the marshmallow to cut the intensity of the chocolate. Overall I would make it again with a few modifications.

And now for Cami's questionnaire:

Q: When did you start baking / cooking?
A: I have always baked I can remember pretty much every Sunday as a child baking something new. When I moved away from home and lived with roommates I stopped baking and thanks to this group I am back baking again. I forgot how much I enjoyed it. I started cooking once I had Lucas because I was at home and I had extra time. I could use a lot of help in the cooking area, but I have been enjoying it the more I try.

A: Probably salt, it is hard to decide.

Q: What is your favorite book?
A: My favorite book for years has been Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

Q: If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

Sounds yummy! You spell your middle name the same way my sister does. I've always thought the E in Lynne makes it look so elegant!

I think the E is the reason I like my middle name.

These sound so good! Would anyone be willing to take pity on the girl who doesn't own the book and post the recipe in full? Thanks in advance!
