S’mores Cookie Bars are a delicious and easy treat this summer and fall! Perfect for a crowd or just a delicious dessert after dinner!
S’mores Cookie Bars
Okay, I promise this is the last S’mores inspired recipe for a while (but not forever!). I know I’ve been sharing a lot of them lately and I am not sorry!
S’mores are one of my favorite desserts ever! Marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers all melty and gooey- my favorite!
I thought I take my S’mores Cookies recipe and turn it into S’mores Cookie Bars. Well, it was actually my sister’s awesome idea and I am so glad she insisted I do it!
The main difference between the cookies and the bars in that you will need to bake the bars longer. Pretty easy right!?
How to make S’mores Cookie Bars:
- Preheat oven and spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray
- Mix together the wet ingredients, set aside
- Mix together the dry ingredients including the crushed graham crackers but not the marshmallows or chocolate yet
- Combine the wet and dry mixtures then stir in the chocolate and mini marshmallows
- Spread dough out into the prepared baking dish and bake!
What are the high-altitude adjustments for S’mores Cookie Bars?
Decrease white sugar to 2/3 cup, decrease brown sugar to 2/3 cup, increase flour to 2 ½ cups and add 2 tsp of water.
What type of chocolate bars should you use?
I stuck with the classic Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar since that’s what I’ve grown up eating on S’mores. If you have a different preferred candy bar you can use that!
What type of pudding should you use?
Use a small box of instant pudding mix- they sometimes vary in sizes depending on the brand but you want a box that is between 3-4 oz. I like to use either vanilla or white chocolate flavored.
Can I make these in a larger baking sheet?
