Easy Crowd-Pleaser Dessert – S’more Cookie Bars

affiliate_disclosure-01

A long, long time ago, I stumbled upon a recipe for s’more cookie bars.  Or, I might have thought it up. I’m not exactly sure.  This (I think) was before I had any kids.  My friends and I were having a holiday party where we binged on wine & dessert and decorated gingerbread houses.  I brought these, and they were amazing.

That also MIGHT be the last time I made them.  I don’t know why. They’re so easy.  But, I made them again a few weeks ago, and brought them to a potluck and then again just the other day.  The recipe below is easy.  But at the VERY end, I have one hack to make it even easier.

Line a cookie sheet with graham crackers.  You can break them in half, or leave whole.  Preheat your oven to the temperature the chocolate chip cookie requires. Underneath these graham crackers, I have the silicone mat so it’s easy to pull the whole thing off to have cool.

Make your chocolate chip cookies.  This is using the easy “just add butter & egg” bags.  I always have a few in the pantry.

Add dollops of the dough all over the graham crackers.  They should be fairly close together.  Set your timer for about half of the recommended cook time for the cookies.

After your timer goes off, remove and use a spoon to spread out the cookie mixture to cover all the graham crackers.  I had some leftover dough (I made a double batch) and put some extra dough to fill in the gaps.

Add a layer of chocolate chips (use milk chocolate!) and marshmallows.  When I made the ridiculously easy version – I put waaay more marshmallows than you see here.  I love marshmallows.

Cook the cookies the rest of the time.  With this first version, I didn’t cook them half and then half.  And it resulted in me overdoing the marshmallows to balance out the done-ness of the cookies. Don’t make my mistake. 50/50 is really the best.

Cut apart and enjoy.  I cut them diagonal in long strips, then cut those up in to smaller pieces.

Ok ready?  Buy the break-apart mini chocolate chip cookie dough and put them on.  Do everything else the same.  It’s life changing.  It’s how I made more cookies on a random Monday night.  With 3 kids.
