S’mores are one of my all time favorite desserts. These Smores Cookie Bars remind me of being around a camp fire! They are gooey and loaded with tons of melted chocolate. They are the perfect combination of chewy, sweet and buttery. They taste just like S’mores!

These S’mores Bars start with an easy chocolate chip cookie dough. I spread 1/2 of the dough on the bottom of the baking pan and cook for 10 minutes. Next I layer on the chocolate bars, mini marshmallows and the rest of the cookie dough. I place it back in the oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. When they come out of the oven I like to place a few chocolate squares on top!Smores Bar Recipe | chefsavvy.com

How to make S’mores Bars

  • Preheat oven: Start by preheating oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Make cookie dough: Add butter and both sugars to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Beat until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Meanwhile in a medium bowl combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.
  • Bake: Press half the dough into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Second layer: Remove from the oven but don’t turn the oven off. Layer the chocolate bars on top of the pan and sprinkle with marshmallows. Spread the remaining dough on top. (It’s ok if it does not cover the marshmallows)
  • Continue baking: Place the bars back in the oven for 15 minutes or until just lightly browned and the bars look set.
  • Cool and enjoy: Allow the bars to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Storage: The bars can be kept at room temperature for 3 days in an airtight container. You can also freeze the bars for up to 3 months!

Tips for making S’mores Bars

  • For a twist try adding peanut butter to the bars. Use my peanut butter cookie recipe as a base and layer with marshmallows and chocolate.
  • Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing into them. They are very crumbly and hard to slice if you try to cut them when they are still warm.
  • For easy cleanup and removal line the baking pan with foil. Make sure to spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

  • These are wonderful! I think the recipe is something I can make with my 4 year old grand daughter, too. She’d love them!

    Can I buy the dough already made? I don’t have a stand mixer any other way to mix? Is this in a video? Thanks so much.

    • Hi!

      You could use a cookie dough mix and add the s’mores ingredients. You can also mix the ingredients by hand if you don’t have a stand mixer.

      Thanks & Enjoy!

    Am I the only one missing something?
    I cant seem to find what you are supposed to do with the graham cracker mix that you say to make. I assume this goes completely on the bottom of the square pan, but then do you immediately top it with have the cookie dough or do you cook the graham cracker crumb first?
    Also, the addition of the candies on top? Do you put those one, just while the dish is cooling?
    Thanks in advance. I’m looking forward to giving this a try.

      Hi Audrey,

      Sorry for the confusion! After mixing the dry ingredients, they can be added to the wet ingredients in the mixer to form a cookie dough. I updated the instructions. Thank you for trying out the recipe!
      Have a great day!
