S'Mores Bars

We all have an addiction to a great new website called “Pinterest”.  Imagine a giant bulletin board, filled with pictures of all your favorite things, that you can share with friends and family – that is Pinterest. Create personalized boards for design, travel, art, crafts, books, and my favorite: food. It was through Pinterest that I discovered this yummy recipe, and once again, set out to try my hand at baking. The result was gooey deliciousness!

½ cup butter, softened 
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 all-purpose flour
¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
2 large chocolate bars (Hershey’s)
1 ½ cups marshmallow cream/fluff

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease square baking dish.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt.  Gradually add to butter mixture, mixing on low speed until combined.

Press half of the dough mixture into the bottom of the greased dish. Place chocolate bars, in a single layer, over dough. (The bars may fit nicely side by side, but if not, break them apart to create an even single layer) Spread marshmallow cream over chocolate. Flatten remaining dough and lay over the top.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
