An Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bar Recipe

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.

I even made a quick little video to show you just how easy it is!

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.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter S’mores Bars:

You’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!

Press 1 1/4 packages into the bottom of a lined and greased pan…

The top that completely with milk chocolate bars…

THEN top that with peanut butter.

Gorgeous.

THENNNN top that with graham cracker crumbs…

And yep, top that with Marshmallow Fluff…

And 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.

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

Then 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…

You 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…

I can’t even tell you how good these bars are.

Can’t even tell you.

  • Author: Cookies & Cups
  • Prep Time: 15 min

  • Total Time: 4 hrs 35 min
  • Yield: 25 bars 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: American

Description:

Treat yourself to these Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S’mores Bars! So many layers of a delicious marshmallow, peanut butter and chocolate dessert…these cookie bars are a guaranteed crowd pleaser at any party you attend!


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
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 4 full crackers)
  • 7 oz jar of Marshmallow fluff (1 1/2 cups)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line a 9×9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray
  3. press 1 1/4 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.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

So what did I do wrong? They looked absolutely delicious when I pulled them out of the oven! But when I cut them, the bottom cookie was still raw! Did I miss a step? I’m so sad because I was looking forward to eating them …. I mean ONE…today. I will try again, but just wondered if I misread the recipe or if you know a solution. Love your recipes Shelly!!!

Just made them last night. They hit EVERY spot! So yummy. Only down side is having to wait so long to get to eat them after taking out of oven 🙂

OMG! WOW wow wow weeeeee! This recipe is absolutely delightful! I have made them for our soccer boys at least a dozen times now, I try to make something else but they seem to only want these! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful treat!! We are in love!!!

This is great! I love to add this to my Christmas dish list.

Microwave the marshmallow fluff for a few seconds so it will spread easily. Also for the top cookie layer, put it between 2 sheets of parchment and roll out. Doesn’t stick and transfer to the dish easily.

Has anyone tried making this without peanut butter?

I am wondering the same thing!

Oddly I have a child who hates peanut butter… but if you leave it out there is nothing for the graham cracker crumbs to stick to… any substitute suggestions?

Valerie

I’m afraid I’d eat the whole pan!

I’m thinking of doubling this recipe and using a disposable 9×13 aluminum pan (for a camping trip). I do have one question though – do you think it would set up ok once chilled if I use Teddy all natural peanut butter (a little thinner but our favorite) or is Jiff a better candidate of this type of dessert? Looks so good – can’t wait to eat them!

I made this recipe yesterday. Wow. It was the best. However, I think I overcooked it a little. Is it done if the middle is still kind of jiggly? I probably cooked it 10 minutes longer than recommended waiting for it to firm up.

I made these tonight and they turned out amazing!!!!! You just have to be sure to spray the foil (don’t forget the edges) with non-stick spray. So easy!

Thank you once again for another delicious recipe!! I baked these eaarlier today and they came out perfect. I will say to everyone that you should definitely let these cool COMPLETELY before cutting. They are super gooey, but that’s the best part.

Janice Andersen

If I increase the ingredients by half and cook it in a 9×13 pan, how long do I cook it?

Jenny

Has anyone tried these with marshmallows instead of the fluff?

Just made these for a kids birthday party. Hopefully they are a hit! I would say that you need more cookie dough then the recipe called for, had to go back to the store for more but I did also double it.
Hopefully I don’t eat them all tonight but I mean I have to make sure they are edible 😉

I made these a week ago and my son-in-law couldn’t stop raving about them. He even sent me a text a few days later that he was finishing them off and they were as soft and fresh as when I had made them. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I made a dozen with one cookie per liner an used some mini marshmallows some cracker crumbs an with mini hershey bars 2 sections.

WIll pam the liners next time though I did like an will do again. No peanut butter since am allergic but… Read more »

My first batch is in the oven now. One suggestion: I put the partially assembled pan of bars including globs of marshmallow fluff in the warm oven to (hopefully) make the fluff easier to spread. I only gave it one minute. It helped a little. I might try 2 minutes the next time. After spreading the fluff some more, I finished the remaining layers. I don’t know how this dessert could possibly taste bad. (It is heavy!)

I softened my marshmallow creme and that made spread very easily.

Could you say do mini marshmallows spread over instead of fluff?

Kris

OK, I made these today….twice!!!… because, even though I followed the recipe to the letter, the first batch was inedible due to uncooked cookie dough on the bottom. Made another batch and put less cookie dough on the bottom. They were just as bad. Too sweet, uncooked, impossible to get out of the pan with aluminum foil sticking to them, not structural integrity…so they look nothing like the picture. I am an experienced baker and will NEVER make these again!!!! Maybe lose the bottom layer of cookie dough and put whole graham crackers on the bottom instead of the infernal… Read more »
