Salted Caramel S’mores Bars

Thank you unborn child for without you, this cookie would have never been invented. Had you not woken me up at 4:30 in the morning yesterday and not allowed me to go back to sleep, I may have enjoyed a nice, lazy morning. But, thanks to you I was up up up and figured I might as well get inventive. This cookie ended up being so delish! I have a large appetite while NOT pregnant and nothing has changed since having little Iz in my belly. But yesterday, I tasted one of these bars around 9 am…by 3:30 I hadn’t eaten anything else and was just starting to get hungry. That’s very, very not like me. Point being, this cookie does not mess around. It’s large and in charge.

I started with the base of one of my ultimate favorite family cookie recipes and built from there.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup butter, softened (I always prefer salted)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 bag milk chocolate chip cookies
  • 2 bags caramels (kraft or other brand) – unwrap
  • 1 king size largo hershey’s chocolate bar
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 5 graham crackers – coarse crush using hands
  • 2 tsp sea salt or fleur de sel
  • 1 freezer bag

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 300
  2. blend first 6 ingredients in food processor until well combined
  3. press into greased cookie sheet to form a crust
  4. bake at 300 for 45 min
  5. remove from oven and immediately pour chocolate chips on top. allow to melt a bit and smooth out using spatula. If you need to melt them a bit more, pop the pan back into the oven for a minute or so until it can be easily spread.
  6. Pop pan into the oven for 10-15 min until chocolate sets up a bit
  7. in a saucepan over med heat, combine caramel and milk. Stir occasionally until melted
  8. Pour 2/3 of caramel mixture over chocolate and smooth out using spatula
  9. immediately pour mini marshmallows over the caramel
  10. using remaining caramel and a spoon, drizzle over the marshmallows
  11. sprinkle the salt over the caramel/marshmallow mixture
  12. pour graham crackers on top
  13. place broken up chocolate bar into large plastic bag and microwave at 50% – 1 minute intervals until melted. WATCH CAREFULLY! You don’t want your choc to burn.
  14. Using scissors, clip the edge off of the bag and drizzle the chocolate over the entire mixture.
  15. allow to set in the fridge for 1 hr then cut and enjoy!
