S 'more Bars



When my kids visit I like to make their favorite meals, treats or goodies. Chersten said this was a Harris Family favorite. I'm glad she recommended it because now I have another favorite treat. It is good to have options!
Summer is winding down, soon roasting marshmallows will be replaced with pumpkin cookies and hot chocolate. Now this is not a bad thing but if you begin to crave a S'more these bars will fit the bill. Like I said--it is good to have options.

S'more Bars
2 cups flour
2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking power
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups Marshmallow Fluff or Crème (7 ounce jar)
2 cups chocolate chips--I like a combination of milk and semi-sweet chips
Combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Combine softened butter and sugar, mix for 2 minutes until light. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture until just combined. Divide the dough in half. Press half of the dough in a 9x13 pan that has been lined with parchment paper and sprayed with Pam. Press to flatten. Put dollops of the marshmallow crème on top of the cookie base and gently spread. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Scatter the remaining dough over the top. Don't be too concerned here, the marshmallow and chocolate chips should just peek through. Bake the bars until golden brown 30 minutes at 350. Cool completely. Remove from pan and cut in squares. Now you can enjoy a S'more without smelling like a campfire.
