//For our sweeties


Cause sometimes you run out of cookies and you don't have time to go through the process of creaming butter.

Should you promise to send a certain someone a batch of s'mores cookies, and then discover shortly thereafter that you were low or out of of them altogether, these bars make a nice alternative. And they're a lot easier to make. Now I know you're going to take one look at the ingredients and go "But Lindsay, these bars have all the ingredients necessary to make more s'mores cookies!" Right; I know this. I also know what it's like to experience baking-related trauma. Sweeties were a snap to make; and since everything was mixed in the pan, cleaning up was eaaaaaasssy.


* 1 stick butter (or non-dairy alternative), melted
* 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
* 3/4 cup molasses or sweetened condensed milk
* 10 ounces of chocolate chips (white, dark or milk)
* 1/3 cup shredded coconut
* 2 cups marshmallows
* 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350°

In a 9 x 13 baking dish, spread the butter or non-dairy alternative over the bottom of the pan, turning it to coat. Press the 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs into the base; drizzle the molasses or sweetened condensed milk over the crumbs. Sprinkle the chocolate chips, followed by the coconut. Stack the marshmallows over that layer, and then add a liberal amount of chopped pecans. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Set on a rack to cool and then cut into squares.

P.S. To the aforementioned certain someone: Don't worry — there were plenty of snickerdoodle cookies leftover.
