These Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S’mores Bars are amazing! So many layers of delicious goodness…they are a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
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…
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.
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.
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.
Super incredibly amazing. I had to get them out of the house asap, because I couldn’t be trusted.
makes 25 bars
- 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)
- Preheat oven to 350°
- Line a 9×9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray
- press 1 1/4 of the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared pan.
- Top the cookie dough completely with the Hershey Bars
- Spread the peanut butter on top of the chocolate using an off-set spatula or knife.
- Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs on top of peanut butter.
- 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.
- 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!
- Bake for 20-22 minutes until top is golden.
- 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.
- Cut into squares while chilled.
