I miss being a college student. Seriously. I miss taking naps every day, spending every single moment with my friends, the football games, reading in the shade of the oak trees in the quad…I even miss the classes and the challenges to learn new things and transition from child to adult. *sigh*
One of my favorite college memories is road tripping with my friends to see Auburn play Tennessee in Knoxville. We stayed in a cabin in the mountains, and it was perfect fall weather. We all snuggled up in blankets and made s’mores and just had fun being together. We also won the game and enjoyed hanging out in Gatlinburg. It was a really perfect weekend.
Now that the weather is starting to cool off, it’s the perfect time of year for s’mores! Last week, we enjoyed these bars while watching Auburn beat Ole Miss. We have a TV on a rolling cart that we take onto the patio so we can sit outside and watch it as if we are really tailgating, and it made me remember that perfect weekend in Tennessee.
The best thing about this dessert (other than how delicious they are), is how easy they are to make! Basically just as simple as regular s’mores, with some cookie dough thrown in there, and an oven instead of a campfire. Hope you enjoy these and make some memories while you do!
S’mores Cookie Bars
Source: a pin on pinterest that didn’t actually link me to a site…
Graham Crackers (about 3 1/2)
1 roll (16 1/2 oz) of chocolate chip cookie dough
1 giant (7 oz) Hershey bar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lay graham crackers in a sprayed 9 inch square baking dish. Break crackers as needed to fit in a single layer.
Flatten cookie dough by hand or with a rolling pin. Place the flattened cookie dough gently on top of the graham crackers.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until mostly cooked through.
Break chocolate bar into pieces and place over the warm cookie. Sprinkle marshmallows into a single layer on top.
Bake for about 8 minutes, or until marshmallows are slightly browned and puffy.
You’ll probably want to let these cool a moment because they are super gooey straight out of the oven and are difficult to cut. However, if you don’t mind your serving being a gooey, chocolatey, sticky mess (ya know, like a real s’more), then go for it! 🙂
