Cheap and Cheerful Cooking: Rockin' S'More Bars from Family Fun
I know it's Cyber Monday. But, for some reason, I am thinking more about holiday baking than holiday shopping. I saw these bars in a free magazine called Family Fun that we started getting after buying a book on Amazon. I know two kids who've been carrying around the magazine for days and asking when we can make these bars. I'm thinking it might have to be this weekend while we decorate our Christmas tree.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup crushed graham crackers
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 (1.55-ounce) chocolate bars
1 (7-ounce) jar of marshmallow creme
Grease an 8-inch-square baking pan. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Add the crushed graham crackers, flour, salt, and baking powder and beat until well mixed, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides of the bowl.
Spoon half the dough into the pan and spread evenly with your fingertips. Break the chocolate into pieces and arrange over the dough. Spread a layer of marshmallow creme over the chocolate. Flatten the remaining dough into pancakes and lay them over the marshmallow.
Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let the bars cool before serving.
