How To Make Peanut Butter Cookie S’mores Bars

  1. Set your oven to 350 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, blend room temperature butter, brown sugar, and sugar for a solid 5 minutes. You want it to be light and fluffy.
  3. Toss in the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter into the mix. It’s like building a flavor dream team in your bowl!
  4. Now, introduce the dry ingredients – flour, kosher salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix it up just until everything plays nice together.
  5. Press half of that glorious cookie dough into the base of your baking dish. This is the foundation for your soon-to-be masterpiece.

6. Spread a generous layer of marshmallow fluff over the pressed dough, sprinkle some chocolate chips (because why not?), and top it all off with the remaining cookie dough.

7. Pop it in the oven and let the magic happen for 30-35 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the top is a beautiful golden brown and the center has just a little wobble.

8. Take it out, let it cool, and then dive into dessert heaven! Pro tip: maybe cut it into bars before diving – it’s a bit more civilized.
