Super S'mores cookie bars

So a friend of mine saw a picture of these cookies on Pinterest and she sent it to me and asked if I thought I could perhaps, maybe bake something similar and bring them to work.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh  she knows I love a baking challenge.  So I searched around a bit and discovered the blog The Girl Who Ate Everything where she had this wonderful version of this recipe...so me being me...I took it, edited it a bit and am now sharing this yumminess with you all. These are easy and delish! By the way I did bake then for work an our small office managed to eat all 40 cookies in less than 15 minutes!!!!    I used my chocolate chip cookie recipe in this but feel free to use your favorite (or....if you are in a hurry...use a bagged chocolate chip cookie mix...I won't tell)

S'mores Cookie Bars

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk


1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
3 regular sized Hershey’s bars, broken into pieces
1-2 packages graham crackers, broken into squares



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a rimmed cookie sheet with graham crackers...fit tightly - break to fit if needed. 
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the dry ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows by hand
Drop by rounded tablespoon full on top of the crackers..you want the mounds of dough to be close enough that as they cook they will spread and blend together. flatten the mounds slightly. Bake for about 5 minutes until the just start to spread. remove from oven and pres hershey bar pieces into the semi-cooked dough  close enough that you will get at least one piece per cookie bar.  Return to oven and bake 6-8 more minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the chocolate chip cookie is almost set. let cool completely and cut into bars.




Super yummy!
