If you've ever been to Kim's Lovin' from the Oven blog, you know that she's absolutely a baking genius! I've been reading her blog for the past couple of years, and she has some amazing creations. So far, this is my favorite recipe that she has posted.
While I like s'mores, they're really not something I crave. These s'mores bars, however, are so good I made it twice in less than a week! One regular version; the other an Elvis remix (coming to you next week!).
This recipe is so simple, so delicious, there's not really much more to say except go try it! You won't be disappointed!
Come back next week for Elvis S'mores Bars!

from Lovin' from the Oven
1/2 c. butter, room temperature
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs (about 4-5 whole graham crackers)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 regular sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
7 oz. container 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. Press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough, break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer. Spread marshmallow creme/fluff over the chocolate layer. 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.
Makes 16 cookie bars.
