June '10 Cookie Carnival - S'mores Cookie Bars

Ooey -- Gooey -- Delicious!

Three little words to describe these cookie bars!


June's Cookie Carnival Kids' Bake cookie recipe is the S'mores Sandwich Bar Cookie from Hershey's.

My daughter and I had a lot of fun baking these cookies together.


We had even more fun eating them! These little bars are delicious right out of the oven while the chocolate and marshmallows are still runny and melted. They are also very good the next day once they've had a chance to cool down. The cookie bars are quick and simple to make & would be a great treat to take to a picnic, to make for a child's birthday party or to sell at bake sales.

The only substitution that I made to the recipe was to use semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of the chocolate bars. I also ground my own graham cracker crumbs using honey graham crackers.

S'mores Sandwich Bar Cookies

* 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
* 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1-1/3 cups (8-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S
Mini Milk Chocolate Bars OR 5
HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate
Bars (1.55 oz. each)
* 3 cups miniature marshmallows

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan.

2. Beat butter and sugar until well blended in large bowl. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Press half of dough in prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes.


3. Sprinkle mini chocolate bars over baked layer or arrange unwrapped chocolate bars over baked layer, breaking as needed to fit.


 4. Sprinkle with marshmallows; scatter bits of remaining dough over marshmallows, forming top layer. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or just until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. 16 bars.


Perfect with a cold glass of milk and a good book!


From June thru August, there will be 2 recipes sent out for the Cookie Carnival - the first will be a kid's cookie recipe and the second will be a little more complex(but definitely nothing too complicated!).

Everyone is invited to bake one or both of the cookies! Get the kids involved!

i'm so regretting not making these cookies. i think i might just do them today- i have all the ingredients readily available!

your cookies look VERY scrumptious, and the cold glass of milk is just what the bar needs.

thanks for organizing our carnival!
