Hello again, readers! I hope that each of you are enjoying your summer! It seems to have really flown by fast, and I can’t believe that a week from today is Independence Day! Yup, my most favorite holiday of the year, the 4th of July. I just love it! The grilling, the good food, family, water sports, sunshine, and fireworks…what more could you ask for?!


I wanted to post a recipe today that would be a good one to serve at your 4th of July party. I know this dessert is not colored red, white, and blue like in all those food magazines with pretty holiday-themed dishes. But what’s more American than S’MORES?! I guarantee that this will be a gigantic hit at your party. These are ooey gooey and delicious, and if you serve this while it’s still warm, people might faint from bliss.

I’ve made a similar recipe before called S’mores Cookie Bars, and the recipes are a lot alike. The other recipe uses regular graham crackers as the crust, but this one uses crushed graham cracker crumbs with melted butter to make the crust. And this one includes made-from-scratch cookie dough instead of store bought. So this one is a bit more involved than the other, but it paid off in the end because I think this one is better! And it’s really not that difficult either, so I think it’s worth the couple extra steps.

      • Well, I made them and you were right. Everyone loved them. They turned out fabulous. My Mom asked for the recipe and she promptly made them for her Bible study.

          Awesome! I’m so glad they were a hit :-). I need to make them again because they ran out so quickly last time that not everyone got to try them…and they haven’t let me live it down either!

  1. Have these in the oven right now! Had a bit of trouble getting the dough over the crust, but I think it will even out okay. Smells awesome!
