I literally had to get them out of my house as fast as possible because there was no stopping me from munching on them all day! The bottom layer is brownie then graham cracker, chocolate chips, marshmallow, sweetened condensed milk and finally a red velvet cookie layer!

How Do I Store S’mores Bars?

Store any leftover bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days on the counter or 5 days in the refrigerator.

Tips For Making The Best Cookie Bars

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie bar.
  5. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  6. Don’t overtake your cookie bars.  Bars will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  7. Let cookies cool completely before cutting into squares and storing in containers. This will keep their crispness.
  8. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    Christina says:

    I made these this morning and used a Duncan Hines red velvet cake mix but mine turned out looking more like a chocolate cake mix. Not anywhere near the bright red top layer yours has. Any idea why this happened?

    • 20.1
      Jenny says:

      How weird Christina! You didn’t prepare the cake right? You just added the butter, egg and oil from my recipe? My cake mix was super bright red.

      • 20.1.1
        Christina says:

        Yes I prepared it according to your recipe (not the back of the cake mix). Very weird cuz I used the exact same cake mix. Not sure what happened

  21. 21

    Red velvet and s’mores are two of my all time favorite things! I could have just these bars and nothing else for Valentine’s Day and be totally happy. 🙂

        CRAZY AMAZING!!! WOW!!!! HUGE RAVING HIT at family dinner! They are all gone!! The entire 9 x 13 pan! Right now I am wishing I had one leftover for myself. 😉 I made them exactly according to your recipe. I even used parchment paper and lined the baking dish. I really liked that trick. THANK YOU JENNY!! I am looking for a reason to make them again! 🙂

    Nina says:

    These look amazing! Will skipping the condensed milk make a big difference?

    • 38.1
      Jenny says:

      Hi Nina, you could do these without the condensed milk, but they will not have the “gooey” factor that makes these fabulous 🙂

  39. 39
    Jackie says:

    Oh my…these are a must try. Bet they make a GREAT comfort food.

    Personally, I wouldn’t try skipping the condensed milk, Nina – but that’s just me, maybe Jenny has better input on that…

    I purchase red velvet brownie mix instead of cake mix. will this make a difference?

    Dee says:

    I just made these and went by the recipe exactly. Waited an hour for it to cool and cut into it and scooped out a piece.

    The taste is divine.

    Just one problem. Why is the brownie mix on the bottom still liquid?
    Is it supposed to be that way? For now I am covering it and placing it in the fridge to “harden”.

    Other then that all the other layers are done and very tasty.

    Stacey says:

    If I were to prepare this the night before and then bake it the next day , will the crackers be too soggy?

    I have purchased red velvet brown and its perfect!
    Keep it this!!
