S'Mores Cookie Bars
It's not every day that I do desserts - wait. I make desserts every day at work. Okay, so it's not every day that I make desserts at home. In fact, it's pretty rare. But, when I do, the kids are so excited and sometimes actually fight over it. Like these S'Mores Cookie Bars. They loved them. Yours will too. You're welcome.
S'MORES COOKIE BARS
2/3 C butter, softened
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 C chopped pecans
2 1/2 C flour
1 C milk chocolate chips
1 C mini marshmallows
3 regular sized Hershey bars, separated at the rectangles
2 sleeves graham crackers, separated into halves (see note)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Break the graham crackers into halves where you will have squares containing two rectangles. Place them on a sheet pan(s) where they are touching (no gaps in between).
Cream the butter and the sugars with a mixer until fluffy. Add in the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, salt, and flour. Mix until combined. Stir the marshmallows, chocolate chips, and pecans into the cookie dough. Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the graham crackers (it doesn't have to be touching other dough). Be careful not to get too close to the edge because it will run off slightly. Bake for 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and press the Hershey bar rectangles into the dough (see picture above for example). Bake another 8-12 minutes (depends on how thick your dough is) or until the cookie layer is done and golden brown. Let the bars cool completely before cutting.
