S'more Bars Easy 4th of July Dessert Hip2Save

If you love the combo of melted chocolate and puffy browned marshmallows, try these easy and delicious S’more Bars perfect for your 4th of July celebration! They come out of the oven gooey and delicious and are a definite crowd pleaser.

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

(adapted from BettyCrocker.com)

Ingredients:
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

Directions:

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.

    Okay, this is off topic, but does anyone have a Crazy 8 20% off coupon that they won’t be using by the time it expires in June? If so my email is kaitlineyoung (at) hotmail (dot) com Thanks you so much!

    These would be yummy made with Nutella instead chocolate chips too and the Nutella would stay soft.

    I found this recipe two weeks ago and read the betty Crocker reviews on it and people posted how difficult they were to cut with the gooey marshmallows and suggested foil cupcake liners. They turned out SOO cute in small individual liners- perfect for parties

      Thank you! I’ve made these three times since this post and thanks to you I used the foil liners. Worked perfect!!

        I know this is an old post, but whenever I make any kind of cookie bars/brownies, I line my pan with foil, making sure to overlap the edges so I have a “handle”. Then I can take the whole thing out of the pan at once (I usually let the dessert cool a bit so it sets and doesn’t sink in the middle). Then use a pizza cutter rather than a knife to cut the squares. Dipping the cutter in hot water between cuts helps too.

    I have been making these for years they are amazing! Real butter works best. And make sure your chocolate is fresh or it will not melt right if it is old chocolate

    Thanks Lina!

    you should NOT broil in a glass/pyrex type pan. it could cause the pan to explode.
