Smore Bars

I tried s'more bars for the first time while at Ramona's Table for dinner with Jenn. We split one and agreed that it was amazing. Ever since I had it I have been looking for a recipe for s'more bars but all of them just did not seem to be like the one we had at Ramona's Table. Finally when reading a food blog a couple of weeks ago I found this recipe and it did not disappoint. If I were to do it over again I would have added a bit of caramel like the one I had from Ramona's Table. This would be a great dessert to bring to a Labor Day cookout!

S’More Bars (adapted from a recipe on The Hungry Mouse)

1 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs or approximately 14 crushed up graham crackers
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
6-8 milk or dark chocolate bars (I used both milk and dark chocolate Hershey’s bars)
3 cups marshmallow fluff

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9X13-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in eggs 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 (the easiest way to do this is by flattening the dough into small pieces and laying them together).

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars
