I went out today and bought my Christmas cards to send out. That’s my favorite part of the holidays.. using a ton of stamps and putting old school envelopes in the mailbox! Do you send out Christmas/Hanukkah cards?

Day 3 of my 12 days of cookies: Since my last s’mores cookie bars was such a hit, here’s another variation that’s just as good. The only thing that I shouldn’t have done is use cinnamon graham crackers.. it really offsets the taste of the s’mores. Stick to the plain graham crackers no matter how much better the cinnamon one truly is.

What I loved the most is that the cookie baked perfectly into the shape of the graham cracker after cutting it. The graham cracker does soften while in the oven, but it still has a bit of a crispy bite. You can add more than one chocolate piece on top of each cookie if you like your s’more chocolate ratio to outweigh the marshmallow and graham cracker. Recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything

Day 3: S’mores Bar Cookies

Ingredients

  • 11 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 3 regular sized Hershey’s bars, broken into pieces
  • 1-2 packages graham crackers, broken into squares

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line baking pans with parchment paper. I used one 11x17 pan and one 9x13 pan but you can really use any sized pans you want.
  2. Lay out graham crackers side by side on the pans as close as possible (they should be touching).For thicker cookies, use less graham crackers and more dough.
  3. Cream together the butter and both sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  6. Place rounded tablespoons of dough on graham crackers about 1 – 1 ½ inches apart. Use your fingertips to slightly press down.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes then remove from oven to press Hershey’s bar pieces on to the top.
  8. Bake for and additional 5 – 7 more minutes or until dough is beginning to turn golden brown at the edges. Make sure cookies are completely cool before cutting, otherwise you'll end up with a doughy mess!
