Peanut Butter Smores Bars

This is a dessert I’ve made a few times- and now it is often requested! Store bought cookie mix helps make this dessert super easy. Eating smores just got a whole lot cleaner and there’s no need to wait for a campfire to indulge!

1 bag store bought dry peanut butter cookie mix PLUS ingredients listed to make cookies (bag states it makes approx.. 36 cookies and uses 1 egg and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil. Note- you cookie mix may be different!!)
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
½ bag of mini marshmallows (about 2 cups)
6 graham crackers, crushed
2 tbs water

-Follow directions on the cookie mix and make the cookie dough (combine dry mix with egg and oil, or whatever your bag calls for)
-Add in crushed graham crackers and water as you stir cookie ingredients together.
-Line a 9x13 greased baking dish with parchment paper.
-Take 1/3 of dough mixture and press on the bottom of the dish.
-Cover layer of cookie dough with chocolate chips, lightly pressing the chips into the dough.
-Add the marshmallows atop the chocolate chips.
-Take the remaining 2/3 of dough and break into small crumbles on top of the marshmallows.
-Place in the over at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until the dough and marshmallows get toasty brown.
-Remove from oven and let cool completely.
-Slide a sharp knife around the edges of the bars to ensure it isn’t sticking to the side of the dish.
-Use the ends of the parchment paper to help lift out the bars.
-On a large cutting board cut the cookies into squares and enjoy!

This recipe was adapted from

-You can use large marshmallows or marshmallow fluff instead of minis. Just make sure the marshmallow layer is no more than about ¾” thick.
-You can also use chocolate bars in place of the chips.
-This gets sticky! Definitely invest in the parchment paper or these may not come out so pretty and square!
-I use store bought cookie dough but you can certainly make homemade too.
-You can also use chocolate chip cookie or sugar cookie mix instead of peanut butter cookie mix.
