I tried to give these as gifts but the ingredients didn't fit in the jar. I had to put the extra stuff in plastic bags. My sister made them, though and said they were delicious.

Paula my Grandmother was one of the old fashion farmwives who just threw things together with no recipes. I remember a stuffed pear that she made with cream cheese and nuts but don't know what else might have been in it. Of course she used her home canned pears. Do you know of any stuffed pear recipe with these ingredents? Would love to make it. Thanks

This is So Awesome! I took the advice of the other readers. I put all the Graham on the bottom face up, and sprinkle the brown sugar last. Also, cut the butter in half. I've made this twice and both are a sell-out!!! Love you and Merry Christmas Paula!

I have tried this twice. The first time I did reduce the butter but it was still too liquidy. The second time I reduced the butter in half and then I added more marshmallows. I think the etra marshmallows did the trick for me. I also made sure all of the teddy grahams were on the bottom of the dish. Turned out awesome!!

I'd like to try the S'mores Bars but wonder if I could use Golden Grahams cereal bits instead of the Teddy Bear graham pieces. I like them instead of the bears in most other recipes for things like party mix, etc.

This recipe baked into a liquidy mess! Way too much butter. Has anyone tried reducing the butter to 1/4 cup instead of 1/2? The presentation in the jar is pretty, but it doesn't taste good.

Hey Paula! I love the S'Mores Mason jars - I gave them as gifts this Christmas! I even gave myself one and just baked them but mine did not set as pretty as yours? The butter was kinda just melted on top so they were soupy and they did not cut into nice pretty squares like yours! HELP! What do you think I did wrong? Hope your Christmas was great!!!!

I chilled the baked s'mores in the fridge for about an hour before cutting them (after letting the pan cool on a rack for 30 minutes or so). They were much easier to cut into square shapes. They are delicious! This is a great recipe and a terrific gift idea. I also used regular graham crackers which worked well. I crushed the crackers a bit before taking them out of their wrapping.

For those of you that had problems with the recipe, here is how I solved the problem of the ingredients not coming together to form bars. Pour the contents into a bowl and mash up the Teddy Graham cookies a little. Pour the butter on and toss the ingredients. Put into the baking dish and bake. When you take the dish out, get a wooden spoon and carefully mix up the melted ingredients a little more until you see the it mixed well. Press down with a spatula and let cool completely. Cut into little squares because it's very rich. Yummy!

this is for viets smith, the name of the recipe is elvis gooey butter cake you can find it on paula's website. hope this helps.

By cathy stidham on November 25, 2011


these recipes look great. Where would I find a recipe that was served at a buffet In Tennessee. My daughter ate at one of your restaurants and had Elvis gooey bars made with peanut butter, she knows there was peanut butter and chocolate. But she could not remember exactly what they were called But she raved and bragged on them to me, her mom.She also new that Elvis was in the name. Is there anywhere I could find a recipe for them? I love your shows as do I your sons show.
