In honor of spring and camping season, I present a wonderful remake of our favorite campfire treat. When I came across this recipe on Baking Bites last summer, I knew I had to try it. And because I’m known for always having “Marshmallow Fluff” jars on my pantry shelf, I was deemed responsible for their creation. They taste just as delicious as your fresh bonfire dessert (minus the slight charcoal taste) and can be made in your own oven. Summer is within reach! Taste it for yourself.
S’more Cookie Bars
from Baking Bites
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 graham crackers)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (I used Hershey’s)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla.
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. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan.
4. Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick.
5. Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff.
6. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).
7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars
Makes 16 cookie bars.
* I recommend them with a cold glass of milk. These babies are sah-weet.
