Foodie Friday- Smores Bars



 Sticky, gooey, messy, chewy... aren't smores the best? Cooking them outdoors with a warm fire and friends is of course, ideal... but when you're lacking the campfire, try these! They are so delicious and terribly sinful- but very worth it.

Ingredients

7 graham crackers
1 and 1/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup softened, room temperature butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 large (4.25 oz) Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars
1 and 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff



First, heat your oven to 350 F.  Grease an 8x8 inch pan and set aside.
We're going to need to to crush those yummy graham crackers into a fairly fine powder- I put my grahams into a gallon ziplock, sealed it, and used a rolling pin to finely crush them, but you can you a bag and a hammer, or really whatever method you would like :)

In a smaller bowl, combine your finely crushed graham crackers, flour, baking soda and salt.

 In a larger bowl, cream together both your sugars with your room temperature butter until creamy and fluffy.

 Add your egg and vanilla and blend until combined.

 Add your flour mixture to your butter mixture and on a low speed, mix together until totally combined- your dough should be a bit crumbly looking.


 Separate out half of your dough and put the other half aside. Using one half, press the dough into the bottom of your greased pan


 Lay your chocolate bars side by side on top of the dough.

 Spread your marshmallow fluff on the chocolate layer.


 Now, with your other half of dough, you can either manhandle it to get it even on top of the marshmallow layer, or you can use this handy little tip: Put your dough into a gallon zip lock baggie and flatten it out with your palms or a rolling pin to about the same size as the dish.


 Now cut open two sides of your bag so it opens like a book.


 Now you can flip your dough onto the top of your marshmallow layer easily- some of my dough crumbled a bit, and it's not perfect, but no worries! It still tastes amazing :)


 Pop those yummies in the oven for 30-35 minutes to cook, and take them out and let them completely cool before cutting into them.

 And enjoy! Look at how gooey and melty and delicious. NOM.



I slightly altered a recipe I found at Baked Perfection- whose Smores Bars look about a thousand times better than mine, but I still thank so much for the idea to make these delicious treats!
