S’mores Bars

So…recently I’ve started this book club. Mostly because I woke up one morning and realized that I hadn’t read anything even remotely intellectually stimulating in over a year. Which was a bit alarming for me. Can I share a little bit of my nerdness with you? I used to give myself summer reading assignments. I used to try to fit in at least 5 great classics a summer. But when I started my graduate degree…..leisure reading went straight out the window.

Hence, the book club. We call ourselves the “Park Ave Book Club”. Fancy Fancy.

We also really like food. and wine. and baked goods. When I was thinking of something to make I found these s’mores bars at Crepes of Wrath. They were a hit!

Here’s what you need:

Butter, brown sugar, white sugar, 1 egg, vanilla, flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, salt, chocolate bars (about 4 to 5 bars), and marshmallow fluff

Cream together 1/2 cup of unsalted butter with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar until it’s light and fluffy.

Add in 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla extract and keep on mixing.

In a separate bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients: 1 1/3 cups of flour, 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs, 1 tsp. baking powder, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Whisk it all together until it’s all combine and then gradually add to your butter/sugar mixture in the mixing bowl.

Take half of the dough and press it to the bottom of a greased (or lined) 9×9 pan. ‘

Take your chocolate bars and line the entire dish. You can just break them to make them fit, but they should cover the whole thing.

Now take 1 1/2 cups of marshmallow fluff and spread it on top of the chocolate bars. *Important* I had a whole bunch of marshmallows and was just going to use those instead when I read that using actual marshmallow would make this things turn out hard as a rock when they cooled. Trust me. Just use fluff.

Take the rest of the graham cracker dough and lay it over the top of the marshmallow fluff. This is a bit tricky…since you can’t really press it down. I used my hand to flatten out little pieces and then layered them over the top. Don’t worry if it’s a little funny looking. The dough will expand in the oven and you’ll never know.

We’ve got some nice layering action here.

Place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake for about 30 – 35 minutes.

Yum. Wait until it cools completely before you cut it. Or else you’ll have melty goop everywhere. You have to trust me again.

Cut apart into squares and serve.

Enjoy!!!
