S’mores Bars <3 Olivia

IMG_1659

I really like desserts in the form of bars/brownies/blondies. These s’mores bars are pretty incredible- but not quite as good as my snickerdoodle blondies (in my opinion) which will be posted in the near future.
This recipe will fill an 8×8 baking dish, so that could be anywhere from 4-20 servings depending on how hungry you are… 🙂

S’mores Bars

– 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
– 3/4 cup sugar
– 1 egg
– 1 & 1/3 cup flour
– 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (I used about 6 graham crackers crushed up, IF I am remembering correctly)
– 1 tsp. vanilla extract
– 1 tsp. baking powder
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 2 giant Hershey chocolate bars (or 5 regular)
– 2 & 1/2 cups mini marshmallows (or fluff would work also)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
1. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar together until blended (I used a spoon, a hand mixer would be fine also).
2. Add in the egg, vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl combine the remaining dry ingredients (flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt).
4. Add the dry ingredients into your butter/sugar mixture and beat until blended. You now have your graham cracker blondie base.
5. Using roughly 1/2 to 2/3 of the blondie base, cover the bottom of a greased 8×8 baking pan (or line with parchment). Press down the dough to ensure it is even. The batter is delicious and you might want to eat some at this point.
6. Bake the blondie base for approximately 15 minutes.
7. Remove baking pan from the oven and spread your chocolate bars evenly over the top of the blondies. 2 giant bars fit perfectly for me.
8. Pour the mini marshmallows (or fluff) over the chocolate bars. Fluff may be difficult here because the chocolate is beginning to melt.
9. Use the remaining dough to cover the marshmallows. Because of the consistency I found it very difficult to spread the dough over the marshmallows so I just sprinkled the dough evenly over the surface, resulting in a “crumble” look.
10. Place back in the oven for another 15 minutes. Let cool before eating (I thought it would be better when it was still warm, and I was wrong, it is better when cooled). Yummy.
