I recently found this recipe for a dessert that sounded amazing. It’s a combination of two very delectable foods, cookies and s’mores. I tried it…and amazing it was! It may even become a new family favorite because each of us had more helpings than necessary!
First you make a batch of cookie dough except part of the flour is substituted for graham cracker crumbs, keeping with the s’mores theme. Dividing the dough in half, you spread it on the bottom of a greased pan.
The next step is to add the melted yummy goodness you find in the middle of the s’more…chocolate! The recipe says to lay the chocolate bars side by side but I separated mine and it was more than enough chocolate in the finished product.
Next comes the very naughty part…marshmallow crème, and lots of it!
Spread an even layer over the chocolate and top it all off with the remaining cookie dough. Bake it in the oven and this is what you get…
Extreme Goodness! After sampling this little beauty, Nathan said he no longer wants a cake for his birthday, he’d like S’mores Cookie Bars please! (I added the please part)
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
- 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
- Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick. Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Makes 16 cookie bars.
