Who doesn’t love a good S’more? It used to be it was just a camping affair, but not anymore. Not with all the talented cooks coming up with amazing recipes to create fond memories of campfires past. In fact this S’mores Bread was created by a good friend of mine Becca over at It’s Yummilicious.
Of course if given the chance to make a sweet treat that involves chocolate I have to over do it. So this is why I call it the Ultimate S’mores Bread. Now, there will be no more waiting for summer, no more waiting for camp fires…my S’mores addiction can be curbed at anytime with a few simple ingredients that I tend to keep on hand anyway.
2 packages of Crescent Rolls
1 cup of mini chocolate chips (reserve a few to sprinkle on top)
Using a foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet, arrange the crescent rolls with the large side toward the middle and the points hanging over the edge.
Crush your graham crackers and sprinkle them down the center of the crescent rolls like the picture below.
Next add your chocolate chips & white chocolate chips
Next add your mini marshmallows and begin to fold the points of the crescents up and over the top creating a braid.
Melt the butter and brush over the top of the braid. (or you can cut up the butter and place on top)
Next sprinkle the cinnamon, marshmallows and a few mini chocolate chips over the top.
Cook at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the braid is golden brown and the marshmallows are too. Let cool for a few minutes before cutting into. Sink your teeth into the blissfully decadent sweet bread that since it is made with croissants, I justify eating for breakfast too!
Be prepared to WOW your taste buds! I made some mini tarts with Nutella and topped with banana slices. After that it was on to see what else I could make with Nutella besides my spoon inserted into the container <blushing> So while sitting in the kitchen looking for inspiration I see browning bananas calling my name. I remembered seeing a recipe somewhere recently for Nutella muffins, from my good friend Becca over at It’s Yummilicious. If you want to check out her fantastic page click HERE.

This is a great recipe to share on Valentines Day for that special someone. Perhaps a neighbor who helps you out, your kids’ teacher, your daycare provider, or even your spouse! Imagine opening up a cute little box of this homemade treat instead of boxed candy this year!! It is quick, easy and ooey gooey bites of chocolaty deliciousness! Here is how…
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil, or coconut oil; or 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup Nutella (heaping)
2 overripe bananas, smashed
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk (no buttermilk? no problem, see additional notes at bottom of page)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup mini milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare two loaf pans by lining with parchment paper. Or you can just spray the tin, I use the parchment because I think it is easier to get out and makes the bread better when cooking.
Mix oil, Nutella, and sugar in a large bowl with a stand mixer.
Add the bananas, eggs, buttermilk, and baking soda to the Nutella mixture. Mix well.
Slowly add flour and chocolate chips, just until combined.
Divide the batter evenly between the two loaf pans.
Top with a few mini chips or Valentine’s candy or colorful sprinkles.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Make sure to let cool before slicing
How to make your own Buttermilk:
