S’Mores Cookie Bars

IMG_8394

I am kind of on a S’mores kick lately…maybe I didn’t eat enough when we were camping!  Either way, I am craving them a lot lately.  When I came across this recipe, I just knew I had to try them.  Oh man, these are GOOD!!  The marshmallow fluff is ooey gooey on the inside, but has that crisp crust on the outside, much like a roasted marshmallow.  They are really easy to make, and you don’t have to use chocolate bars…I just used milk chocolate chips.   This would probably be really good with Dark chocolate chips too, if you like Dark chocolate.

Serves 9-12 for about $0.30 – $0.38 / per bar (depending on how big you cut them)

INGREDIENTS:

IMG_8363

1/2 cup butter, room temperature – ($0.50)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg – ($0.10)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 pkg. Milk Chocolate Chips – ($1.98)

1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows) – ($0.92)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

Make your graham cracker crumbs in your food processor.  One cup was about 1 package of crackers.

In a large bowl, mix together butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.  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.

Place chocolate chips over dough in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick, and pat down into dough a bit.

Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff.

Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).

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

ENJOY!!
