I really like s’mores, but we are not really into campfires too much so I was delighted to find this baked version. The recipe originates from Baked Perfection, but I, of course, found it on Pinterest and saved it for later. Later finally came and these bars are so ooey, gooey good! Hurry to the store and pick up the ingredients because these are awesome.
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 (approximately 7 full graham crackers)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 super-sized (5 oz.) dark chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)(I didn’t check my bar size so I ended up with HUGE chocolate bars, but don’t worry because the extra didn’t go to waste.)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow crème/fluff (not melted marshmallows
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 8×8 inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture 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.
Then layer the chocolate over the cookie dough…
THEN layer the marshmallow crème over the chocolate and top that off with the remaining cookie dough. You will probably have to carefully work the dough over the crème to have complete coverage.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool completely and then try to keep from eating the whole pan by yourself. It will be hard to do, I promise. As you can tell by the photo below, I didn’t let mine cool quite enough before cutting into it. Oh, well…
