These Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S’mores Bars from Peanut Butter Comfort by Averie Sunshine are incredible.  She calls them Six Layer Cookie and Marshmallow S’mores Sandwich Bars.  Either way they are amazing!

A few weeks ago I opened up my front door to a package.

Now I am no stranger to the package on the front door.

I consider myself a bit of an online shopping expert.

 

But sometimes when you are such an expert internet shopper you forget about the things you buy…

That is until the box ends up on the front step.

ORRR the husband intercepts said box, which is basically the worst day of my life.

 

In these cases he generally stands over me while I open the box, all while I over-explain about how it was “on sale”, a “total bargain” or (my favorite) “for the children”.

 

Anyway, when you open the box it’s like a surprise!  What did I order?  I can’t even remember!

It’s basically like Christmas.

 

But back to the box in question.

I couldn’t remember ordering anything…so when I opened it up and saw that it was a copy of Averie’s new book Peanut Butter Comfort I was so super excited.  Because the only thing better than opening up your boxes of online purchases, are opening up boxes that are a surprise!  Love that!

 

Anyway, I quickly got to work choosing something to make.

Because helllllooooo, the whole book is about peanut butter.

You guys all know how I feel about peanut butter.

My boo.

 

Although it was hard to decide, I chose to make her Six Layer Cookie and Marshmallow S’mores Sandwich Bars.

Tis the season of the S’more.

And y’all never seem to get tired of S’more-ish stuff.

 

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Smores Bars…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S'mores Bars | Cookies and Cups

I made the recipe pretty much exactly as-is written.  She even made a modification for those of us who want to take a short-cut and use packaged cookie dough.

Which I did.

 photo IMG_3027_zpse9f8e455.jpgYou’ll need 2 packages of cookie dough. The recipe calls for Chocolate Chip, but I grabbed one that had white chocolate too.  Totally up to you!

 photo IMG_3032_zps67979b7a.jpgPress 1 1/4 packages into the bottom of a lined and greased pan…

 photo IMG_3035_zps19d25168.jpgThe top that completely with milk chocolate bars…

 photo IMG_3037_zps839b7f57.jpgTHEN top that with peanut butter.

Gorgeous.

 photo IMG_3040_zpsa72330e0.jpgTHENNNN top that with graham cracker crumbs…

 photo IMG_3043_zpsf89b3325.jpgAnd yep, top that with Marshmallow Fluff…

 photo IMG_3045_zps84499862.jpgAnd finally you’ll top all that with the remaining cookie dough.

She says in the recipe to use a rolling pin to flatten it out.

 photo IMG_3047_zps5abc5156.jpgI didn’t have a ton of luck getting it flat enough, so I pieced it on.  It was totally fine.

 photo IMG_3049_zps76e31683.jpgThen bake that up for about 20 minutes.  It will weigh approximately 76 pounds.

 

And for real you guys.  The is how it will look when it’s done…

 photo IMG_3053_zps8f47f83f.jpgYou have to let it cool completely before you can cut it…otherwise, like she says in the recipe, it will be a big ol’ mess.

SO I waited and then I chilled it, so it would be easy to cut…

 

And y’all.

Be still my heart…

 photo IMG_3055_zps113e608b.jpgI can’t even tell you how good these bars are.

Can’t even tell you.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S’mores Bars
 
makes 25 bars
Ingredients
  • 2 (16 oz) packages of pre-made cookie dough
  • 16 oz Milk Chocolate Candy Bars (I used a little more than 3 XL Hershey Bars)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup graham cracker crumbs (about 4 full crackers)
  • 7 oz jar of Marshmallow fluff (1½ cups)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line a 9x9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray
  3. press 1¼ of the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  4. Top the cookie dough completely with the Hershey Bars
  5. Spread the peanut butter on top of the chocolate using an off-set spatula or knife.
  6. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs on top of peanut butter.
  7. Spread the Fluff on top of the graham cracker layer. The Fluff is hard to spread, so do your best when spreading over the graham crumbs.
  8. Finally roll the remaining cookie dough out on a flour-dusted counter top. Place rolled dough on top of Fluff. My dough ripped, so I just pieced it on, which was totally fine!
  9. Bake for 20-22 minutes until top is golden.
  10. Allow to cool for 2 hours on a wire rack. Then transfer to refrigerator to cool for at least another 2 hours. If bars aren't completely cooled they will be far too oozy to eat.
  11. Cut into squares while chilled.
Notes
store airtight in the refrigerator.
Serve chilled or reheated in the microwave. I actually liked them chilled.

Best if eaten within 3 days.

That is too funny…because I am the same way with online shopping. I order something so much (almost always from Amazon, because we are Prime members. So it’s free shipping and always there in less than 2 days…so I usually always forget what I’ve gotten.) But just yesterday, I was making sure my husband would be at work by the time the UPS guy came on Friday with my order, bcz of the kitchen things I ordered…they are my “wants” not really “needs”. hehe I had to get Averie’s new book (on Amazon, of course!)the day it was released.

Lol. What?

These are perfectly ridiculous. And of course I mean that in a good way.

And surprise mail! Aww. Lucky girl! I think I’ve gotten surprise mail twice in my life. And it was pretty magical. 🙂

Look super satisfying! One question though, have you tried making them with a 9×13 size pan? Could I just double the recipe or would I need to change up the ratios? Thanks! Can’t wait to make’em!

I would HAVE to torch the fluff; for me s’mores have to have that burnt marshmallow taste…but beyond that I’m betting these are sinful.

Shelly thank you so much for making these and trying this recipe! They look incredible. When I made them for the book, the #1 thing I remember about them is that the pan weighed about 10 lbs going into the oven after all those layers 🙂 Your pictures are wonderful and truly do the recipe justice. Thank you for the super sweet post, for trying the recipe, and for the links to my site and book. You’re the best! 🙂

Ahhh these look amazing! I think I’ve seen these on Averie’s blog before, but OBVIOUSLY I needed a reminder because, hello, I need these! By the way, that happens to me all the time where I think, “What did I order now?” I mostly blame it on Amazon and free shipping. 😉

All things good in a bar form? Too good to be true.

Also, I LOVE it when a package is delivered and I forgot what I ordered. It really is like Christmas.

Wow! Your s’morse layer bars are so tidy! They are picture perfect!

I also love, love, love getting a package when I’ve forgotten what I ordered! Hate the guilt trip when it’s intercepted though…so glad I’m not alone. 🙂

I just made these and lived to tell the tale! My tip: zap the fluff in the microwave for just 10 seconds and it will spread over those graham cracker crumbs much more easily. Also: I only had crunchy peanut butter but I kinda love the texture!! Thanks for sharing, let me know if you want to see a pic of mine
