S'mores Cookie Bars

It doesn't need to be summer in my house, nestled next to the campfire, for us to have s'mores! Quite possibly one of the best bars I've made recently.  They come from Lovin' From The Oven.  Check out her blog, you won't be disappointed.

I took this along to Thanksgiving, as they travel easy, and desserts are always a happy hit at family gatherings, right?

Honestly, they taste almost exact to an actual s'more.  Minus the the smokiness from the fire.  Wish I didn't miss.

S'mores Cookie Bars
1/2 c. butter, room temperature
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 large egg
1 t. vanilla
1 1/3 c. flour
3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 king sized milk chocolate bar
1 1/2 c. marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 8x8 square baking pan.

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  In a small bowl whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.  Add to butter mixture until combined.

Divide the dough in half, pressing half into bottom of pan.  Break apart chocolate and place over the dough.  Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme/fluff.  Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of marshmallow creme/fluff.  (Most easily achieved by pressing pieces of dough flat between hands and laying them together).

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool completely and cut into bars.  Makes 16 bars.

After spending today with my parents and grandma, tomorrow is going to be all about getting myself in order.  Ever just feel unorganized?  That is how I feel right now.  I'm a list maker and and currently have no lists made, nor any checks next to those important items.

Sometimes I write something down on a list I already have done, just to place a check mark next to it, as it makes me feel better.

Insane, I know.

I need to make a Christmas gift list, an items-to-make-those gifts list, a to-do checklist for household areas I've been neglecting, a meal-planning list....hell, the list game could go on and on.  May sound crazy, but makes me feel better!

Who else is a list maker?

Would you like to comment?

    I am a major list maker ... I make lists about making lists ...

  2. OH man. Marshmallow fluff is a total guilty pleasure for me. It's so disgustingly ridiculously good. I can't help but love it... even though I'm not sure it technically qualifies as food?? hehe :)

  3. Just made the smores bars today and they are awesome! thank you!
