S’mores Bars (Easy 4th of July Dessert)

(adapted from

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

How to make smore cookie bars Hip2Save


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.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
