Happy National S’mores Day!
If you’ve been following us along you’ve probably seen the reminders and warnings I’ve been posting that today was coming.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I think s’more is the new pumpkin spice. You don’t have to look long or hard to find s’more flavored everything. It is a fantastically wonderful problem friends. Today I have teamed up with some of my best blogging pals to share some of our favorite s’more inspired recipes.

I have been looking forward to this day and these recipes for months now!
For my recipe I chose to go with a s’more cookie bar. Beth fact: I love cookies. They are my favorite go-to dessert for any and all occasions. These cookie bars have a graham cracker crust, a chocolate chip cookie dough batter and plenty of marshmallows and chocolate. They are easy and quick to make and kid approved too!
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows plus a few extra for the top
- 1 regular sized milk chocolate Hershey Bar
- 1) Spray a square baking pan (I would use a 9x9 or an 8x11). If you want to guarantee no sticking, line with parchment paper.
- 2) Combine graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and press into the bottom of the pan to form the crust.
- 3) Cream softened butter, add in sugars and cream again until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix again.
- 4) Combine flour, baking soda and salt and pour into the mixture. Stir until combined. Then fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows.
- 5) Spoon mixture evenly over the prepared crust. Spread as evenly as possible but don't obsess over making it perfect.
- 6) Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes
- 7) About 8 minutes before the bars are done, sprinkle a handful of marshmallows on top and return to finish baking.
- 8) When finished remove from the oven and use the broken candy bar pieces to decorate. *TIP if you want them to stay perfect and not melt while decorating try freezing the candy pieces while baking the bars .
- 9) Cool completely before cutting if you want them to look extra pretty. If not, dig on in. I waited as long as I could.
They are so good friends!
