Oh my ooey gooey goodness! Much like s’mores made over a fire pit, these s’mores bars are gooey & oh so messy. Perfect summertime treat! I made these about two years ago for a swim meet bake sale and they were quite popular. Just stumbled on the recipe today and thought I would make them as a special treat for my kids to enjoy watching the Olympic trials for swimming tonight.
11 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
21/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 cups of chocolate chips (dark)
2 1/2 cups of marshmallows (cut up into smaller pieces), divided
2 Hershey bars
1 box of graham crackers
4 snack size Milky Ways & Snickers bars (I also used some Reese’s mini cups) Use whatever you have or just use the Hershey bars.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a 9×13 glass pan line the graham crackers on the bottom like this…
In your stand mixer with the paddle attachment on, mix butter and brown sugar. Add vanilla and the eggs. Beat well.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Then gradually add to the butter mixture. Blend well yet avoid over mixing. Add the chocolate chips and 1.5 cups of marshmallows. Blend. Scoop out of your mixing bowl and top the graham crackers with the dough.
Bake for 10 minutes. Then remove and top with the 1 cup of marshmallows, Hershey bars and Milky Way/Snickers pieces. Insert back in the oven for another 10-12 minutes. Once the cookie dough is a bit more firm, turn the broiler on low and let the marshmallows toast up. This will take 1.5-2 minutes. Remove and let cool completely before slicing, if you can wait.
