S’mores Bars (Easy 4th of July Dessert)
(adapted from BettyCrocker.com)
one pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 stick of butter, melted
1 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips (note that the original recipe calls for 18oz., but I only had one 12 oz. bag on hand and they turned out great)
1 16 oz. bag Jet-Puffed StarMallows Marshmallows
In a large bowl, combine cookie mix, butter and graham cracker crumbs (easily make graham cracker crumbs by placing crackers in a Ziploc bag and going over them a couple times with a rolling pin!). Stir mixture until it forms a dough.
Press dough evenly onto the bottom of a well greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Take out of oven and quickly pour and spread chocolate chips evenly with a knife – they will melt from the heat of the cookie.
Place marshmallow stars on the top of the chocolate. Instead of pouring them randomly, I placed the stars so they were all laying flat and not on their side for a neater look (and so you could tell they are stars!). Place pan on broil in the oven to brown marshmallows – this will only take a minute or less so watch them CAREFULLY!
Enjoy your S’more Bars straight out of the oven and they’ll be gooey and taste amazing. Or serve them at room temperature and they will still taste fantastic. And just a warning – these bars are so darn good and super addicting! 🙂 Makes about 16 bars.
