smores bars

Goodness... goodness in a pan. I had seen these Smores Bars floating around on pinterest for a while.  They were tempting me so I finally made them for our small group on Sunday evening.  These are fabulous. Easy to make and even better to taste! I doubled the recipe and it was enough to make 1-13x9 and 1-8x8.  The secret at the end is to flatten out your dough... stay tuned for that tip.  These are super rich so a small piece goes a long way!

Smores Bars

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs 
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 kind size milk chocolate bars (like Hershey's)
1 1/2 cup (12 oz) marshmallow creme fluff (not melted marshmallows)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease 8" square baking pan.  
3.  Grind your graham crackers to crumbs. I used big crackers and put them in my little chopper to make crumbs.
4.  In large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. 
5.  In small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
6.  Divide dough in half and press half of the dough into an even layer on the bottom of the pan.  Use your fingers to make sure none of the bottom is showing.
7.  Place your king size chocolate bars onto of the flattened dough.  2 should fit perfectly.  If you need to, break into pieces.
8.  Spread the marshmallow fluff on top of the chocolate pieces.  This was a little tough.
9.  Use your fingers to make flattened disks of the remaining dough. Place the disks on top of the marshmallow.  Do your best to cover all of the fluff.  
10. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned.
11. Cool completely, then serve!
