Graham Cracker Cookie Bar Recipe for Tasty Kitchen

Graham Cracker Cookie Bars - Tasty Kitchen Recipe

Each year around the holidays, I have the same conversation with myself. “What treat should I make for the neighbors this year?” After years of making elaborate breads and desserts, I finally decided that any recipe I use for this purpose needs to fit three criteria: easy, inexpensive, and irresistibly good. My newest obsession, Chocolate & Nutella Fudge with Sea Salt certainly fits this criteria and so does this recipe for Graham Cracker Cookie Bars, submitted by margaretha to The Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen site.

These cookie bars require a mere five ingredients and less than half an hour of your time, which will leave you feeling decidedly unfrazzled and ready for some joyful gift-giving.

For the recipe and step-by-step photos, read my guest post on the Tasty Kitchen blog.

I received this treat from my neighbor and it is already gone. I ate it all. They are delicious cookies. Now I have the recipe, too. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Love that criteria – and I would love to be a neighbour of yours. I, too, give treats… but have you noticed it is a dying tradition? I have been working hard to re- introduce it the past few years. I find people are too rushed to take the time to do such important little labours of love. Kudos to you!
MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!!!
And may your holiday be filled with warmth and love and happiness.
BIG HUGS!

I made these yesterday and they were super easy to make. I didn’t spread the chocolate chips out–just left them whole but next time I think I’ll gently push them down into the caramel so they stick better. Some of them fell off when I broke the pieces apart. I brought them to my office today and they are almost gone. Definitely a hit!
