Dandies Marshmallow Smores Bars

I got a free sample of Dandies vegan marshmallows in the mail last week - Thanks Chicago Soy Dairy!!!! To show off the meltability and brownability (is that a word) of the marshmallows, I made smores bars. These are super easy. They took about 10 minutes to put together and throw in the oven. The recipe is from All Recipes. Some changes to the recipe: I didn't use quite as much margarine as called for. I baked the bottom layer for 5 minutes before adding the chocolate and marshmallows. I also threw some extra graham cracker crumbles on the top. I hit them with the broiler for about 2 minutes at the end of the cooking time.

The marshmallows were crispy and brown and tasted great the next day too.

Vegan Dandies Smores Bars

I only made a 1/2 batch so I only used half the bag. I have the other half for campfire smores this weekend while camping!

Dandies Marshmallows are great! Run out and get some. They might be the best tasting marshmallows I have ever had (vegan or not).


  1. Those look amazing! I definitely need to get some of those marshmellows

  2. These look so great, but I don't think we can get those marshmallows here...

    It's funny how we vegans adapt recipes all the time!

  3. I really want to try dandies...I've never tried any vegan marshmallows before because honestly they seem prohibitively expensive. Maybe I'll ask for some for my birthday lol.

    good idea making those smores bars...yum!

  4. Yummm I havent eaten marshmallows in years. They look deliciously gooey :)

  5. that looks amazing! :)

  6. Hey there! Just wanted to let you know that I'm linking you now cause I love your posts. I look forward to more in the future!

  7. Do vegan marshmallows cook the same way as 'normal' ones? I have fudge recipe that would be vegan apart from the use of the marshmallows and I haven't been sure if they would melt the same.

  8. Great..I have a whole post on my blog recently about if I could make my fudge vegan. I will have to see if they can be bought in the UK and give them a try. Otherwise, I will wait until my next journey home to the States (I'm an American living over here) and stock up.
