Oven S'more Bars

making s'mores is one of the highlights of summer.
getting said s'mores off of your 2 year old's face & out of her hair is not as much of a highlight.

also- it's all but impossible to make legit s'mores & take them places. or not eat them all right then & there. because they are messy & the only good melted marshmallow is one that is consumed within 47 seconds. otherwise- no bueno.

but this recipe allows for the taste of s'mores without the mess & with the ability to make & share with others. yes- they're magical like that.

Oven S'mores Bars (via wit&whistle via lovin' from the oven)

You Need:
1/2 cup butter, room temp
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp canilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (i buy the boxed stuff)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king sized Hershey's bars or 5 regular sized
1 1/2 cups Fluff (NOT melted marshmallows)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 & grease an 8 in square baking dish

In the bowl of your stand mixer cream together the butter & sugars until light. Add the egg & vanilla & beat until fluffy.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder & salt.  Add the dry mix to the butter mix, at low speed, until combined.

Divide the dough in half & press half of the dough into an even sized layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish,
Place the chocolate bars over the dough, pressing down gently. I try & make sure every inch is covered with chocolate- so feel free to break the bars if needed.
Spray a spatula with cooking spray & use it to spread the Fluff over the chocolate bars. 

Place the remaining dough in a single layer of the Fluff (the easiest way to do this is to flatted then dough into small shingles & laying/pressing them together)

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

try & get a picture before your significant other attacks the bars with a knife & cuts them with the skill of a 4 year old.

these were so good that i made them 2 weekends in a row.
they're perfect at room temp but they're heaven if you pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds.
heaven people.
Pin It!
