Chocolate Chip Smores Bars Recipe

Instead of quilts, today I’m sharing one of our favorite summer desserts.  It’s also one of the easiest.  My daughter and I started making them last summer, and we take them to potlucks all season long.  It’s the first pan to empty every time!  These chocolate chip smores bars are perfect for a summer night when everyone would love smores but there’s no fire.

And they’re the perfect amount of gooey, with the toasted marshmallow, melted chocolate, and cookie dough, plus the crunch of a graham cracker on the bottom.  Fun, and easy to make, these chocolate chip smores bars will be a hit!

To make these bars, you will need:

1 box graham crackers

1 bag large marshmallows

1 large symphony chocolate bar (the giant size)

ingredients for your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough, or see below for the recipe I use.  (scroll to bottom of post for full recipe)

Start by spraying the bottom of an 11 x 17 inch cookie sheet with nonstick spray.  Then break your graham crackers into halves and cover the bottom of the pan.  Break the chocolate into pieces and place one on every cracker.

Using a pair of scissors, cut each marshmallow in half.  If you don’t do this, they tip over and don’t stay in place!  Place the two halves cut side down on top of the chocolate and crackers.

Mix up a batch of cookie dough, and then with your hands just drop little pieces of it all over the pan.

Then you bake it and the magic happens.  When it’s golden brown, and the marshmallows are melted and toasty on top, pull it out of the oven.

Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.  Serve and enjoy!  Now, please excuse me while I go make some.
