S'Mores Bars

Yum, yum, and more yum!

I needed to make a batch of cookies for a 
lunch I was going to, and I wanted to try 
something different.  I have no idea why, 
but I did a search for S'Mores Bars on Pinterest, 
and up came a recipe from House of Nash Eats 
that looked really yummy.

As I read the recipe, she said she had tasted it at 
a get-together and it was brought by Hungry Runner Girl.
Ha!  I know Hungry Runner Girl personally.  My 
son dated her for a while, so this was a fun recipe 
for me to try out, and the verdict was - fantastic!

These fabulous bars consist of a graham cracker crust, 
topped with a chocolate cookie dough layer, and 
then gloriously garnished with marshmallows, 
chocolate chips and Hershey bars.  How could they 
be anything but wonderful?

The recipe called for a very large amount of 
butter to be mixed into the graham cracker crust - 
let me tell you a secret - butter makes things 
extra delicious!  Nope, I won't be altering that.  

I didn't end up having mini marshmallows on hand, 
so I laboriously cut the full sized ones into smaller 
pieces - it worked, but I grabbed a bag at the store 
for my next batch - which I am making this week.  

S'Mores Bars Recipes

Graham Cracker Crust
2 1/4 C. ground graham crackers ( 1 1/2 pkg)
2/3 C. melted butter
1/3 C. sugar

Mix the above and spread into a 9x13 inch pan and bake 
for 5 minutes at 350.  Remove and let cool a little.

Meanwhile make the cookie dough.

1 C. softened butter
3/4 C. brown sugar
3/4 C. white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 C. flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 C. mini marshmallows

Cream the butter and sugars together.  Then add the eggs and 
vanilla.  Mix the flour, salt and soda together and blend into 
the butter mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows.

Spread on the slightly cooled crust carefully, so as to not break 
up the crust.  Bake at 350 for 18 minutes.  Remove from oven 
and top with 

1 C. marshmallows,
1/2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips 
2-3 Hershey bars, broken into squares

Return to oven and bake for 9-11 minutes.  You want 
these to be a little underbaked.  I baked mine for 9.

Let cool completely before cutting.  I put mine in 
the fridge to harden the chocolate before cutting 
into 24 pieces.

You can see how the cookie dough layer is 
underbaked - that's what you want.  

These will be on your list of favorites from now on!


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
