It’s been heating up in mid-July, and the time is ripe for S’mores galore. No worries if you don’t happen to have a campfire going when a crazy craving hits. With these S’mores Double Chocolate Cookie Bars, you can satisfy that marshmallow-chocolate-graham cracker yearning any time of day. If these S’mores Cookie Bars don’t captivate your sweet tooth, nothing else will.
So I suddenly couldn’t stop fixating about where the idea for S’mores came from. Wikipedia said the first recorded version of the recipe was found in a Girl Scouts publication back in 1927. Way to go, Girls! And, I found out national S’mores day is coming up 🙂 Of course we already knew S’mores is a cute contraction for some more. As in, we want more. Because who can take just one bite?
Now we’ve done it. Gone and made the classic S’more into an uber decadent, rich, luscious dessert bar. This is like Disneyland for S’mores lovers. These S’mores Cookie Bars are chewy, soft, and dense. The graham cracker crumb crust is generously covered with a rich chocolate chip cookie dough. Followed by a canopy of gooey, melty marshmallows lightly toasted to perfection. Then the entire thing is crowned with a happy drizzle of none other than Hershey’s milk chocolate.
Mmm. No words left to say. Except that these S’mores cookie bars were so great that we absolutely needed to share them with friends tonight so we wouldn’t inhale these for dinner. Oh, yes – they do keep well refrigerated and covered, and are much easier to cut when chilled.
Ok. Go enjoy some more S’mores 🙂Print
