Now that I have had a S’more’s Cookie Bar, I don’t know how I have survived without them. Life surely just got better! Any type of “cookie bar” is really my favorite kind of dessert. They are easy to make, easy to eat, and the possibilities are endless!
We are still in isolation here in Michigan, due to the Coronavirus. Therefore, I stare for hours on end into my pantry. Then I see it- Marshmallow fluff. This has been sitting in my pantry for months and months. I can’t remember why I bought it, I can only imagine I told myself I would need it someday. Well guess what? That day came, I definitely needed it!
I’ll be honest, S’mores are not a “go to” dessert for me. Although delicious, and I won’t turn down a s’more, they aren’t something I have to have. However, I’ve been watching my husband build our fire pit and patio in the backyard this past few weeks and I keep thinking about the fun bonfire’s we will have! Now, I’ve got s’mores on my mind.
Like I said earlier, I really wanted to use the Marshmallow fluffy stuff, so S’mores cookie bars, here we come! They are very easy to whip up and they don’t take that much time. The are delicious, rich with chocolate and marshmallow, but have a great cookie texture. Part S’more and part cookie! You will not be able to stop eating these! These are best eaten warm in my opinion. Stick them in the microwave for a few seconds to heat them up and…yummy!
Here’s What You Need
- 1 Cup all purpose flour
- 1 Cup graham cracker crumbs (I used Nabisco, because they are Soy Free!!)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 stick of unsalted butter (8 Tbsp)
- 3/4 Cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 7oz. container of marshmallow fluff (or you could substitute for marshamallows – just enought to cover the surface)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (you can also use chocolate bars) (I used Nestle Toll House Simply Delicious – they are soy free!)
How To Make
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Grease a 8″ square pan (If you don’t have baking spray you can use my cake release recipe and it works great!)
- Crush your graham crackers into crumbs. You can use a food processor or put the crackers in a bag and hit with a mallet, rolling pin or crush with fist)
- In a small to medium bowl, mix together graham crackers, flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside
- In a large bowl, use an electric mixer or your stand mixer to mix the butter and sugar
- Add in the eggs and vanilla, beat until well mixed and scrape the sides of the bowl
- Slowly add in the flour mixture
- Divide the dough in two.
- Press half of the dough into the bottom of your greased pan. You may want to coat a spatula or your hand in flour, so the dough sticks to the pan and not your fingers!
- Spread the marshmallow fluff onto the dough
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the marshmallow
- Take the remaining dough and crumble over the top. It doesn’t not need to be even.
- Bake for 28-20 minutes. Or until the top and the marshmallow turns a golden brown.
