It’s summertime, which means s’mores are in season! I don’t get to spend a lot of time around campfires in the summer, so I like to find ways to enjoy the taste of s’mores without actually cooking one over a fire. These bars hit the spot and are one of my all-time favorite desserts (you may actually hear me say that about a lot of the things I bake, but I promise these are in the top three)!
I felt these were appropriate for my first blog post since this was the first recipe I ever tried from a blog and kicked off my foodie blog obsession!
The top and bottom layers are actually cookie dough with graham cracker crumbs to get the full s’more flavor. The middle layers are easy-just Hershey bars and marshmallow crème. For spreading the layers of dough I recommend using your hands but keeping paper towels nearby to wipe them off frequently. The dough is easier to spread when your hands are dry. Once baked these are incredibly gooey and delicious, and also pretty hard to resist. Enjoy!
- 1 cup butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 2/3 cup flour
- 1 ½ cup graham cracker crumbs
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 8 Hershey Bars (regular size)
- 7 ounce jar of Marshmallow crème
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add all dry ingredients. Press half of dough into bottom of greased 9 x 13 pan.
Place chocolate bars over dough (you will need to break them into individual pieces to fill in spots at the ends of the pan).
Cover with layer of marshmallow crème. Place remaining dough on top. This is easiest done by placing spoonfuls of dough on top of the crème and spreading together with your hands. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
