#NationalSmoresDay | Blog Hop

That's right my friends, it is #NationalSmoresDay
It makes my heart happy just typing that!

Quick Fact About Me - I am not a big chocolate fan, but I love S'mores!

These things are a crowd pleaser for sure!
I never seem to have any leftovers -- which is fine with me :)
I love making something that everyone loves!

Here is what you need:
8" square baking dish (I use the 9" X"11" dish)
Foil
2 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tube of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (I buy the largest tube possible since I use a bigger dish)
1 cup of pretzels
Cooking spray


Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350*
Line your baking dish with foil and thoroughly coat with cooking spray.

Gently press the cookie dough into the bottom of the dish with your fingers, creating an even layer.
Bake for 18 minutes or until the center is set.

Remove the pan from the oven and add the marshmallows, pretzels, and chocolate chips.

TIP: I lay the square pretzels out about five in each row.
It means each bar has at least one pretzel on it :)

Place the dish back into the oven at 350* for 5 minutes.
To get the toasted marshmallow look, turn the broiler on low for a few minutes.
WATCH CAREFULLY!
Those marshmallows will burn quickly!!!!

Remove the pan from the oven and let completely cool before cutting (about 30 minutes).
TIP: Spray your knife with cooking spray before cutting :)

Cut into squares and Enjoy!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
