In Door S'Mores!!

Indoor S'Mores Bars!! 

Today it is suppose to be 115 in Phoenix and we have wildfires raging in Arizona...not a good time for a campfire.  But S'mores sound so good!!  A couple of weeks ago, I came across a recipe for S'mores bars and just had to try them!!
S'mores Cookie Bars
1/2 c. butter, room temperature
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla, I used my favorite Pure Vanilla Bean Paste
1 1/3 c. all purpose flour, I used Spelt Flour  (less gluten)
3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 t. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
4 regular size Hershey bars
7 ounce jar marshmallow Fluff (not melted marshmallows because they harden when they cool)

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and/or line an 8 inch square pan. I lined mine with parchment paper. It's amazing how easy even the sticky marshmallow comes off.

2. In large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.  Add to butter mixture and mix at low speed until combined.
 4. Press half of graham cracker mixture into the bottom of your pan.

5. Line with chocolate bars, you will need to break some to make them fit.
6. Gently spread the marshmallow fluff onto the chocolate.

7. Then you can either pat out sections of the graham cracker mixture and lay it on the marshmallow, or crumble it across the top and press together.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned.  The pan that was more "crumbled" had Fluff that puffed up and turned a little brown and crunchy....Yum!!  

Cool completely before cutting into bars (I put mine in the fridge on a rack after cooling on the counter for a while.  I live in Phoenix).  If you do refrigerate them, let them sit for a bit at room temperature before serving.  The marshmallow gets gooey :) That's if you can wait that long!! Makes 16 to 20 bars.

  P.S. I did buy some glassine paper cups to put mine in.  They make it much easier for people to grab one without getting goo all over them.

I'm sure this will become a favorite in our family!
