S'more Cookie Bar Recipe

The heat of summer and the crisp air of fall always bring back memories of my childhood.  Hot nights spent outside playing with my siblings and cool fall days enjoying nature.  One of my favorite pastimes is camping with my family in the summer and early fall.  We’d pack up to get out of the Arizona heat and head up to the mountains.  We’d spend a week or weekend playing in water, roasting marshmallows by the fire and getting so dirty you weren’t entirely sure we were kids and not wild animals.

Just the smell of those yummy marshmallows makes my mouth water.  This summer we aren’t able to take a trip to the mountains, so no marshmallows or s’mores to enjoy.  But one day as I was walking down the aisle of my local grocery store, I found these yummy Hershery S’more pieces.  That got my brain working and wondering what yummy treat I could come up with. 



I’ve always loved baking cookies, so of course a cookie was my first thought.  But seeing as I wanted to feed a large group of family members, I decided a s’more cookie bar would be faster and perfect for feeding a lot of people.  Plus, if you really love s’mores, you could add a layer of marshmallows on top at the end and broil them for the perfect s’more snack.

I used my favorite cookie dough for this recipe.  This dough I’ve been using for years and it is so tasty and works with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or chocolate coated candies.  So I knew it would be great for this S’more Cookie Bar recipe.

To top of these yummy s'more cookie bars, I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled them over the top.  Because let’s face it, you can never have too much chocolate.
