S'mores Bars

You should run, right now, to your kitchen and make these. I saw this at Real Mom Kitchen a few weeks ago and made them right away. If you like S'mores, you are going to be in heaven with this quick little dessert. The weekend is fast approaching and you need these, whatever it is you are doing. Trust me. I mean, just look at it. The only warning I have is that you might be tempted to eat the entire pan.

What You Need:
1 stick of butter, room temperature

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 king-sized Hershey’s milk chocolate bars
1 large egg
1 jar marshmallow creme/fluff
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (~7 full-sized graham cracker sheets, processed til fine)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. Use an electric mixer to cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Set aside.

Meanwhile,whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture until combined.

Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan.

Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side. (I had to trim a little off one bar to get mine to fit.)

Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff.

Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff. You sort of have to make "shingles" with your hands by flattening small sections of dough and piecing them together on top.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until lightly browned. Be sure to cool completely before cutting into bars. {Although we didn't cool them and I thought they were best served warm!} Enjoy!
