Delicious S’mores Cookie Bars

We all remember the s’mores scene from The Sandlot, right?

I am not a fan of camping. I just hate having everything I take with me smelling like smoke, but I love sitting around the campfire, singing crazy songs and making delicious s’mores. I figured I could easily make some s’mores at home with a little twist to them.

Who doesn’t love s’mores? And who doesn’t love cookies? Why not combine these two amazing family favorites that you can easily make at home.

Now of course, you have to get Hershey chocolate bars. Are s’mores really s’mores without Hershey chocolate? I don’t think so!
