Cookie Carnival: S'more Sandwich Bar Cookies

This amazing-looking cookie is Hershey's S'more Sandwich Bar Cookie, and it's the June cookie for the Cookie Carnival, hosted by Tami over at Tami's Kitchen Table Talk. Yes, it's late, I know it's July. But I couldn't pass up making these, even if they were late to the party. I had a busy day planned, so I was up making a mess in the kitchen at 7:30 this morning. Let me tell you, it was criminal to have my house smell so good that early in the morning. I made sure to eat my regular breakfast of oatmeal, yogurt, and banana while they baked so I'd be able to resist a piece when they came out of the oven. Even with a full belly it wasn't easy.

After I got back from my oldest daughter's orthodontist appointment, lunch out with my three girls, hair appointments for all four of us, Target, dropping the oldest and youngest off at home, and taking my middle girl to the Thanksgiving Point Farm (we both milked a goat--well, I tried. Apparently it's not a skill I have), I finally got to taste one of the cookies. And all I can say is, "Mmmmmmm....bring on the milk!" They are so good, they taste just like s'mores! I'm glad it just makes an 8x8 pan, otherwise I'd have to save myself by pawning them off on my neighbors.

Thanks, Tami, for a great cookie for June! I can't wait to make the July cookie; this time it's a savory cheese cookie. I was a little unsure about her choice until I saw a picture. They look awesome!

Notes: The recipe calls for 8-oz milk chocolate bars, I used 8-oz (about 1 1/4 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips instead; For my high altitude adjustment I added 1 1/2 tablespoons extra flour to the crust/topping part.


  1. Your s'more looks delicious and I'm convinced that I missed out on a winner of a cookie. I must say, I've never put marshmallows in cookies before and so only did the raspberry thumbprint ones... this week will be a first!

  2. Your bars look delish!!! thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. Your cut bars look delicious! I agree, these were quite good and pair perfect with a glass of cold milk :-)

  4. Mmmmm, these look great! I am waaay behind but am determined to bake the thumbprint cookies!

  5. I sure couldn resist these too!!
    And not to worry , am later than u, i jus posted my S'mores!!

    Yours looks so so so good and i want some right away!!!

  6. Looks delicious!! Wonderful job here, keep up the awesome blog :)

  7. I'm trying to catch up on past comments and ran across yours. Yummy bars. These were totally eaten up and loved at our family reunion.

    So do you find you need to adjust recipes for the higher altitude in Utah? I have asked someone else and she said she never does. I've been wondering since a few things I've baked didn't rise up nicely like I'd hoped.

  8. @Katrina, Some things I don't change for my high altitude, but many, many things I do. Sugar and water both behave differently up here, so I've found I need to make adjustments.

  9. These are soooo yummy! I made them over the summer and they were a huge hit!
