I thought long and hard about what to say about these cookies.
And everything I did want to say felt somehow overshadowed by these three simple words..
So yea. I shut up....
Bacon & S'mores Cookie Bars
Adapted from this amazing and creative idea for S'mores Cookies on Always With Butter
2 packages graham crackers
2/3 c butter, softened
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 c flour
1/2 package of dark chocolate chips
6 crispy strips of thick cut bacon, chopped finely
1 c mini marshmallows
1 giant hershey's chocolate bar, broken into small pieces
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan (the cookie sheets with sides) with parchment paper and spread the graham crackers out in rows.
Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Add baking soda, salt and flour.
Using a spoon, stir in the chocolate chips, bacon and mini marshmallows.
Drop the dough around the cookie sheet. Place the balls close enough together that, when flattened, they will bake into a large cookie, but don't flatten them yet!
Bake for 5 minutes, them remove from the oven. Using a sheet of parchment paper (or cling wrap sprayed with nonstick), press the cookies down so that they become one large cookie sheet. Decorate the top of the cookie with Hershey's bar pieces (leave the words face up).
Return to the oven for another 7 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely before cutting.
