S'mores Cookie Bars.

In case I've never mentioned it, Risa over at Baked Perfection  is a genius when it comes to s'mores.  She gets that not everyone enjoys the traditional campfire s'more and invents new ways to enjoy the delicious combination of graham cracker, marshmallow, and Hershey's chocolate!  She's responsible for such delights as s'mores cookies and s'mores scones and s'mores ice cream!

And these: s'mores cookie bars.  I find them ah-mazing.  I've been making them periodically since she originally posted the recipe nearly three years ago.  And today, I introduce them to you so that you can share in the delicious.

S'mores Cookie Bars
(Recipe adapted from Baked Perfection)

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 package graham crackers (crushed until fine)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 multi-pack of Hershey’s chocolate bars
1 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff

Beat butter and sugar until light.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Slowly add to butter mixture and beat on low until combined.  Divide dough in half.  Press one half into an even layer on the bottom of a greased 8x8 baking dish.  Cover with chocolate bars – breaking apart as needed to cover the entire surface.  Top with marshmallow fluff.  Place remaining dough over the top of the fluff (either by way of flattening small pieces in your hand or by rolling out in a plastic bag).  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Cool, cut, and enjoy!!!  

For best taste, leave these sit out on your counter (covered) and eat within a few days.  Of, if you prefer to refrigerate them, microwave each serving for a few seconds to bring them to room temperature...much gooier that way!
