s'more bars and sticky fingers

here's a sweet treat to brighten your monday... a yummy take on the old time classic campfire treat... and it's got everything you'd expect in a s'more ... its sticky, ooey-gooey, melty, chocolaty... and messy... i mean, that's what you want in a s'more isn't it... if your fingers, chin and cheeks aren't covered in melted chocolate and strands of stringy marshmallow then your certainly doing something wrong... but i guess you could use a fork or spoon with these, but you'd be a wuss in my book :)
smore's bars, recipe adapted
1/2 cup butter, softened at room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
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
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, or you can use to king sized chocolate bars
2 cups mini marshmallows or 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff

1. preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8-inch square baking pan
2. in a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in egg and vanilla
3. in a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt... then add it to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined
4. divide dough in half... press one half of the dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan
5. generously sprinkle the dough with the chocolate chips, and pat down slightly
6. then top the chocolate with marshmallows or spread with fluff
7. with the remaining dough , sprinkle atop in a single layer, pressing down slightly
8. bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned, cool almost completely before digging in
9. grab a wet-wipe, roll up your sleeves and prepare to get sticky

so let out your inner child, and get sticky... and as always...

happy baking everyone :)
