Last week my Mom asked me to make dessert for her to take to a dinner party on Friday night. I could make anything as long as it didn’t have nuts.
I have been trying to get in the habit of saving recipes that catch my eye so that later I can have them for these types of moments. Glad I have! I knew I didn’t want to make cupcakes, these were adults after all. So when I scrolled past S’more… it jumped out at me!
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (however much you think you’ll need to cover an 8x8 pan, I used bars from Trader Joe’s)
- 1 jar marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg 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. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick. Spread over chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together). Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
- I altered the recipe slightly up top. The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1 and a half cups of marshmallow fluff, but I only had a single 7oz jar. It seemed to suffice.
- It suggested mashing the dough together to make shingles to build the top layer. I just sprinkled the crumbles over the top. It worked well and then you were able to see hints of the marshmallow on top.
- MAKE SURE IT’S COMPLETELY COOLED BEFORE CUTTING OR ELSE YOU WON’T GET BARS!
