In honor of the movie #BossBabyHE, I decided to create my own closer cookies. A boss baby needs nourishment…and Boss Baby swears by a diet of secret formula and closer cookies!
S’More Cookie Bars (& Cookies)
Crust for Bar:
- 1/3 cup of butter (melted)
- 36 squares (1 package) of graham crackers
- 3 TBSP of granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 cup of butter (soften)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
- 3 Hershey’s bars (broken)
- 3 oz Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits (you can use mini marshmallows if you’d like)
- 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- To make the crust, melt 1/3 cup of butter in the microwave and mix in 3 TBSP of granulated sugar.
- Crush the 36 graham cracker squares with your hands (the finer the better…you could use a food processor if you’d like, but your hands will work just fine) into a medium mixing bowl.
- Pour the butter and sugar on top of the graham crackers and mix until they are coated well.
- Press the mix into a glass pan (I used a 28x18x4 cm pan…but think a slightly larger pan would have allowed the bars to cook more evenly).
- Now it’s time to make the cookie…Mix the 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of butter (soften), 1 tsp of vanilla, and 2 eggs in a large bowl.
- Slowly stir in the 2 1/4 cup of flour, 1 tsp of baking soda and 1/2 tsp of salt (I didn’t use the salt…I actually forgot).
- Break the Hershey’s bars into small pieces and add them to the mix.
- Mix in the Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits (you can use mini marshmallows if you’d like) and white chocolate chips.
- Once mixed, layer the cookie mix on top of the graham cracker crust.
- Bake for 30 minutes…cool and enjoy.
Now if you don’t want to make the bars, you can use this same recipe for cookies. Just skip the graham cracker crust, instead just add a few pieces of broken graham cracker into your cookie before you bake it. You will bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees.
The Boss Baby
Now available on Digital HD. On Blu-ray and DVD July 25
A new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator — a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. The most unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim’s home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.
