Chocolate Chip S'mores Cookie Bars

This Mess Is Ours

Oh yeah - go ahead and drool you know you wanna! If a chocolate chip cookie married a s'more and they decided to have a baby THIS would be it.

Cookies vs. Bars

This recipe took a bit of working and reworking for us to get it just right - These bars started as Chocolate Chip S'mores Cookies, and although they tasted great their appearance lacked pizzazz. 

So, we tweaked and tweaked away at the recipe, but it just wasn't what we wanted - then it occurred to us that since we needed maximum cookie to marshmallow ratio we should bake these delectable cookies into bars!

Make your own gluten free graham cracker crumbs at home by pulsing gluten free graham crackers in the food processor until they are fine crumbs. We used Pamela's brand gluten free graham crackers, but any brand will work!

Let's get to the recipe!

Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides then lightly coat the foil with cooking spray or a flavorless oil. Preheat the oven to 350° F

Beat the butter and sugars with a mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy; add the eggs and vanilla, beat until incorporated.

Reduce the speed to low then add the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt; beat until combined.

Fold in the bag of chocolate then spread in the pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes then transfer to a rack and let cool in the pan.

Once cooled top the cookie bar with the marshmallows and place under the broiler until the marshmallows are perfectly toasted, remove from the oven.

Place chocolate and shortening in a microwavable bowl - heat in 15-20 second intervals at 50% power, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted. Drizzle the chocolate over the top.
