S’mores Cookie Bars

Tis the season for s’mores and I am not complaining one bit! What is it about the combination of grahams, toasted marshmallow, and melted chocolate that just works to perfectly? I might be convinced that you can throw these three ingredients together in any form and it’s going to turn out perfectly!

The only problem I find with a traditional s’more is that they are crazy messy and you need a fire to get them correctly assembled. We don’t have a fire pit at our house but I do wish we did. So I find myself wishing for a s’more quite often.

Anyways, to find a solution to my flameless dilemma is to create a s’mores recipe that includes all the amazing flavors but combined into a cookie bar.
