These meringue topped cookie bars combine cookies with marshmallows and a light but crunchy meringue which is just delicious. They have a variety of tastes and textures as they are sweet, soft, chewy and crunchy all-in-one. They’re easy to make and can be made with the kids too. If you want to save time you could always use shop-bought meringue instead of making your own.
