Camping is a popular pastime during the Texas summer.
We have so many neat places to see and visit. Lakes to fish and swim in. Trails to hike and explore. And of course, just the opportunity to get out in nature and relax.
Another great thing about camping? S’mores. Those warm, gooey marshmallows sandwiched between two graham crackers and perfectly complemented by a plain chocolate bar. But alas, summer is coming to an end, and the dry weather is just not suitable for camp fires this year.
But this recipe is sure to bring a smile to your face!
For S’mores Cookie Bars, you will need…
4 (1.5 oz.) chocolate bars
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. packed light brown sugar
1 jar marshmallow crème
3/4 c. butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. baking powder
The only thing these s’mores are missing is the char from the fire, but it certainly doesn’t lack in flavor. And if you reheat them in the microwave for a few seconds, it melts down just like it came out of the fire.
Spread the remaining cookie dough over the chocolate bars. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. You’ll want to let them cool slightly before cutting them to avoid losing the warm, melted center.
Let’s end the summer with some great flavors and gooey fun. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
