Let me start off by saying I’m eating a s’mores bar as I type this. I’m typing with one hand because I’m not willing to put down the dessert and would rather take twice as long to get this post completed. I wanted a dessert that would be a crowd pleaser to take to a 4th of July party and landed on this pin. It really is awesome – the graham cracker crust is soft and easy to bite through, the marshmallow is creamy and the chocolate…well….do I really have to say anything about the chocolate? Although I am considering using a semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk next time I make this – and there will be a next time.
Because I was making this for a crowd I doubled the original recipe but if you are not planning on sharing the 8×8 would be just fine. Here’s the website by the brilliant woman(Kim) who thought this up(the original recipe is for an 8×8 pan instead of the 9×13 that I did)
1 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
3 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 9×13 baking pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and 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 bars over dough. Break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick. 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.
