Smores Bars

I've already publicly professed my love for S'mores. This month I've gone a little bit overboard--numerous times a week I would find myself turning the oven burner on to high and waiting for it to turn red so I could burn a marshmallow and shovel a S'more in my mouth before anyone caught me. I have to be sneaky so the hubby doesn't eat my stash! The other day I found this recipe and knew it was right up my alley. It was just as good as I imagined. I think I might even be a grown up and make these instead of roasting a marshmallow over the stove. I know right, I'm awesome.

S'more Bars
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 king size milk chocolate bars*
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme (7 1/2 oz jar)

*I used 1 1/2 of the Giant Hershey Bars. I like my chocolate thick.

Cream butter and sugars together. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a seperate bowl combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to the buttered mixture and mix until combined.

Divide dough in half. Press half of the dough into an even layer on the bottom of a greased 8x8 pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. You may need to break the chocolate to get it to fit into your pan. Spread marshmallow creme over the chocolate. Place the remaining dough in an even layer over the marshmallow. *I rolled out the dough in between two pieces of wax paper, cut it to the exact size I needed and then transfered it to pan.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until slightly browned. Cool COMPLETELY before cutting into bars. I would suggest letting them sit overnight. I let them cool for a few hours before I cut into them. The chocolate was still warm and it melted all over the plate and made a huge mess. I let the rest of the pan sit over night and they were perfect S'mores. Also... these bars are SO rich. I'll be impressed if you can eat a normal sized bar without feeling overwhelmed. My suggestion is to cut them into very small squares.
