S’mores cookie bars with graham cracker crust, loads of marshmallows, chocolate and cookie middle will become a summertime favorite!
Making s’mores around a campfire should be a rite of passage into summer. Not only is the combo of graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows one of the best out there, but it’s so exciting sitting and chatting around the flames after the sun goes down while roasting those marshmallows until they’re crusty golden brown around the outside.
We’re actually planning on building a fire pit in our yard, and it can’t happen soon enough. There will be plenty of s’mores making in our near future! And, of course the kids will have to entertain us with ghost stories while they wait patiently for their marshmallows on a stick to do that magical ooey gooey thing.
My kids have the best imaginations and can come up with the spookiest of tales. I, on the other hand, get nightmares easily and would rather hear blissful narratives that involve a happily ever after. 🙂
Making that perfect s’more may seem like quite a simple task, but it is really an art form. It’s so funny watching people create what, to them, is “the perfect s’more”. And it’s different for every person. Some may insist on double the marshmallows and easy on the chocolate. Whereas, I want to load up on the chocolate with a normal dose of marshmallow. Some prefer a toasty brown marshmallow, others like it with a little charring.
But, no matter how you prefer your s’mores, when you bite into that melty, gooey, crunchy sandwich for the first time, the only thing going through your head are thoughts of the complete deliciousness of what you’re experiencing.
So I came up with a perfect cookie bar that provides all those wonderful flavor sensations when enjoying s’mores around the campfire, but without the hassle of the fire! Because, you know how annoying it can be when the wind is blowing and the smoke is making everyone in the circle cough and choke? But they’re bound and determined to roast that perfect marshmallow. They’re not going to leave s’mores-less. So they end up persevering, while hacking the entire time, and desperately trying to wave that billow away?
Yea, that happens all too often here. It’s pretty much windy year-round.
So, if you’re wanting the s’mores taste without the total experience (wind, smoke, and all), these are the bars for you!
Cookies, chocolate, marshmallows, graham crackers…all in one dessert…what could be better? Everyone will think they’ve died and gone to heaven!
I hope you’re having a wonderful summer and that you get to enjoy these phenomenal s’mores cookie bars soon!
