Gingerbread Smores CookiesGingerbread S’More Cookie Bars

You know Christmas is coming when you start smelling the Gingerbread S’more Cookie Bars…. Ok, in reality that NEVER EVER happens in our home. I know, I know everyone loves baking for Christmas.  But I am terrible at it.  You all know my recipes, I am more of a little bit of this and a tad of that kind of gal.  Well, when you throw in a little bit of this and a tad of that when you are baking… my experience has been a complete disaster.

So when I reached out to our awesome Sunday Supper Movement  Contributors for help, Pam from The Meltaways was the first one to come to my rescue.  Thank you Pam, you have no idea how much help I need when it comes to baking.  I love Pam and her blog  is just fabulous!  I am always drawn in by the great recipes and how welcoming Pam is once you enter her blog.  This recipe for Gingerbread S’More Cookie Bars is out of this world.  I can’t tell you how excited my boys are to try this recipe!  And when they realized they had been made with molasses and were oh so ever gooey and chewy…Oh MY!

Hey everyone! I’m Pam and I blog over at The Meltaways. When I heard that Isabel was looking for some gingerbread recipes, I knew I had one I wanted to offer to her. I havebeen lucky enough to call this amazing lady my friend for just about a year now, and havebeen part of her extended #SundaySupper family for the last 10 months. While these cookie bars don’t hold a candle to her sweetness, I sure hope they will satisfy your sweet tooth!

I live in a house of marshmallow lovers, of which I am not one.  But, I try to appease them and keep some around all of the time. So, when I first came across the Jet Puffed Pumpkin Spice ones, I bought two bags, which came in quite handy for the sweet potato casserole I made for Thanksgiving that year.
But, when I found these….

Gingerbread Smores Cookies
I did a knee jerk grab and toss right into our cart. I had no earthly idea what I was going
to do with them, but it wasn’t long before thoughts of a cookie bar, half gingerbread, half
s’more bar, popped into my mind.
Gingerbread Smores Cookie Bars These came out just like I had envisioned – it was like gingerbread had a baby with a
s’more. I let them cool down some before I cut them and took one to my husband, still
gooey and warm. By the time I went back to ask him what he thought, it was gone and he
was smiling like a Cheshire Cat.

The gingerbread cookie was chewy, the chocolate layer just the right thickness and the
gingerbread marshmallow topping just crowned it perfectly.

While these are delicious at room temperature, I highly recommend nuking these in the
microwave for a few seconds to get the true melty s’more experience. It just takes these
guys to a whole new level.
This is the third year I’ve made these – luckily the marshmallows are still easily found. Go
grab you up a bag and get to baking!

Great collaboration this week. Isabel, it’s ok if you don’t bake – us bakers from Sunday Supper will always be here to lend a hand! Pam, these bars are OH-EM-GEE fantastic. Man I wish they sold gingerbread marshmallows in Canada (I’ve yet to see them) so that I can make this bar. I laughed when I read the line “it was like gingerbread had a baby with a s’more”. So awesome! I don’t think you can have a better description than that.
