S’more Cookie Bars

Last night I decided to put my new mixer to good use and make a summer favorite! Kendra and I brought up the campfire treat while running to the ferry building last week and I haven’t been able to get them out of my head since. Without a campfire, there is no such thing as a real s’more, so I researched different recipes that will help suffice my cravings until the real deal. My two friends, Krystal and Ashley came over with some wine and cheese to keep me company while JJ was at soccer practice. Two bottles later, we enjoyed good conversation, cheese and salami and tasty s’more bars for dessert!
The original recipe came from here!
Hope you enjoy!

 Ingredients
 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 graham crackers)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 king-sized milk chocolate bars
1 1/2 cups marshmallow Fluff (not melted marshmallows because they harden when they cool)
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and/or line an 8-inch square baking pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter, egg, and sugar until light.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined. Add the vanilla and mix in the dough (or can add vanilla to the cream mixture, I just happened to forget the vanilla until the end). Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Don’t worry if it seems thin; the baking powder will allow it to rise.
4. Place chocolate bars over dough, then spread the marshmallow Fluff over the chocolate bars. Finally, top the Fluff with the remaining dough by forming the dough into sheets with the palm of your hands and laying it down. Don’t worry if the dough isn’t covering everything! It’ll spread out as it bakes.
5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars. If you don’t allow them to cool completely, they will crumble when you try to cut them.

xo!
