S'mores Bars

I stumbled across this recipe online somehow and instantly knew I had to try it out. It is fantastic! You must try it as soon as possible. It's quite easy too.

S'mores have been a staple in my summer eating habits my entire life. Growing up in-the-middle-of-nowhere-Pennsylvania we spend many many summer evenings at the fire pit in the backyard, roasting hot dogs and making s'mores (and mountain pies, but that's a whole other story for later). The s'mores didn't end when I became a Southern Californian... our backyards were never very big, but we always had a little fire pit for summer evening s'mores. Oddly enough, in Oklahoma we do not have a fire pit - yet. I'm sure we'll have it ready soon. Until then, these are perfect! S'mores that you can make in your oven! Oh so good!!

S'mores Bars
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 giant Hershey's bars (7 ounces each)
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow cream

Using an electric mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the large bowl, using the electric mixer to combine.

Divide the dough in half. Press the first half into a greased 8 inch square pan. Top the dough with two giant Hershey bars. Spread the marshmallow cream on top of the chocolate. On a piece of parchment paper (or waxed paper), roll out the second half of the dough into an 8 inch square. Place the dough on top of the marshmallow and trim away any excess.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until golden. Cool completely before cutting.
