Sometimes life calls for something ooey gooey, chocolaty, marshmallowy and quick for dessert.
I have the perfect treat for you! 
S'mores Ooey Gooey Chocolaty Marshmallowy Graham Cracker Cookie Bars.
Whew that was a mouthful! 
We randomly make these through out the year, especially around Christmas since they are great to bring to any gathering and loved by young and old alike.
 They are so very easy to make and never last long! 
Lorna was asking to make a treat last night when I came home from my Doctor's appointment  and these were the perfect easy solution since they didn't require any additional help and make very little mess. 
Oh and did I mention these fulfill every s'mores craving you'll ever have without even needing a fire pit!

  2. My kids LOVE s'more and these bars will be very popular in my house! I haven't yet to made non baked bars and I'm so intrigued to try this recipe!

  3. Finally! A S'more bar recipe that leaves out the all purpose flour! Too many recipes add cookies - a.k.a. MORE flour - into flour, which is redundant too much flour. This is the first S'more/Crushed graham recipe without the extra flour! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Ayet. Sorry this took me so long to respond. I couldn't find and answer but it's close to a cup of crushed graham crackers per sleeve. This recipe doesn't have to be exact. I'm sorry if that doesn't help. Have a wonderful day.
