S'mores Cookie Bars

To celebrate this gloriously chilly and cloudy autumn Monday, I must wear my new boots (thanks for sharing the steal of a deal, Lauren!), a sweater, and I absolutely must share with you a delightful recipe for S'mores Cookie Bars. I first made these with little helping hands for my husband's birthday back in July. I've received lots of requests for the recipe since then and since I happened to have a picture saved, I decided I will post it and let you all bake some of your own s'mores goodness in your own kitchens. Happy Fall Y'all!

S'mores Cookie Bars
source: wendy's food files


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 (I used Hershey’s)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
2. 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.
3. 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).
4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars. 

These are awesome served both warm and room temperature. I'd imagine you could use chocolate chips and/or peanut butter chips(!) in place of the king size Hershey bars if you already had them on hand. Enjoy!
