S’mores Supreme {aka Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores Bars} and a Slumber Party

My kids are just getting old enough for sleepovers.

They live close enough to their cousins to visit but far enough away that they don’t see them often enough.  When they get together it is one crazy good time so my sister-in-law and I put our heads together to let the good times roll.

No doubt about it.  A slumber party was in order.

When I was a kid sleepovers were about junk food, staying up late, playing games, and talking about boys stuff.  This slumber party was no different {except for the part where we talked about boys stuff}.

To make things fun and easy I threw together a great menu {full of snacks} to keep these kiddos on a sugar high energized until it was way past their bedtime.  Side note: I must emphasize, before I get bombarded by people complaining about “how all these sweets and snacks are bad for my children and how dare I feed them such garbage, yadda, yadda, yadda…”, this happens a handful of times a year.  Relax.

As a parent I got to enjoy the slumber party from a different angle and was also able to see how much work goes on behind the scenes.  Snacks were the easy part.  Cleanup, now that’s another story.

Luckily the wonderful folks from Electrolux make one part of clean up easy.  The laundry.

Right now Electrolux, in partnership with Kelly Ripa, are hosting a Virtual Sleepover.  For every person who joins in on the fun Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund!

That’s well and good, you say but, what does it have to do with my laundry!?

Well, when you join the sleepover you will not only have access to fabulous ideas and recipes for your own sleepover you will also be entered to win a new Perfect Steam Washer and Dryer from Electrolux.  With a wash time of 15 minutes and dry time of 14 minutes I could definitely use a set…four boys, hello!

Before you head over to sign up for the Virtual Sleepover I’ve shared a few snacks below that we love including the aptly name Smore’s Supreme which happened to be named by my adorable niece at the party.  Graham cracker crust, chocolate chip cookie, more chocolate, and marshmallows.  Need I say more!?

It was the perfect treat for our little indoor campout.

Breakfast is also a snap if you prepare ahead.  My breakfast menu included a coffee cake, an egg casserole, and breakfast meatballs.  They were all delicious but the breakfast meatballs were so fantastic they deserve a post all on their own {coming tomorrow}.

Now head over to the Virtual Sleepover and sign up.  One person can make a difference when surrounded by thousands of others who made the same choice.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Smores Bars

Yield: 24 bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Smores Bars

Ingredients

    Graham Cracker Crust:
  • 7 1/4 graham crackers
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 - 12 oz bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • For the topping:
  • 5 Hershey's Chocolate Candy Bars
  • 1 - 12 oz bag mini marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Lay the graham crackers (whole) into a 13 x 9 baking dish sticking the extra 1/4 cracker in the corner. Set aside.
  3. To make the chocolate chip cookie dough begin by melting the butter either in the microwave or stove-top. Allow to cool slightly and whisk in both sugars, eggs, and vanilla.
  4. In a separate medium bowl mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spoon. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Press the cookie dough into the baking dish lined with graham crackers. I found that pressing it out onto a piece of plastic wrap and then flipping it onto the graham crackers worked great.
  6. Bake for 20-23 minutes in a 350° oven or until the cookie dough is slightly browned and set.
  7. Immediately top with the 5 Hershey's Chocolate bars which will begin to melt and top with the marshmallows.
  8. Set the oven to broil and broil until the marshmallows are toasted on top. Watch closely because this only took mere seconds for me.
  9. Allow to cool, cut into bars and serve. Use a sharp knife or you will be fighting with the marshmallows!
