"Yummy and easy cookie bar recipe that my children loved. The copy of this recipe that I have shows it pictured with chocolate frosting and nuts, but I made it as described in the recipe (without the toppings) and it was still very rich (and tasty!)"

"From reading the reviews I reduced the amount of marshmallows and chocolate chips by a half cup. Turned out very good. Still sweet and delicious."

"This cookie is delicious, but very rich. However, if you like S'mores, you'll love it."

"When I took this recipe to a party, it was liked by a few, but it was just so rich that even the children were not very excited about eating it. It could not have been quicker, though, and I would recommend it to others to try and see if they like it."
