{S'mores Cookie Bars...

We had our first stake camp meeting this weekend (Yay for camp!) and I figured a camp meeting without S'mores was no camp meeting at all. So, short of building a fire in the backyard I found this recipe on the internet and it was a big hit. Just thought I'd share it for anyone looking for a fun new dessert for FHE or for this summer when your kids want to 'camp' in the backyard!

1/2 c butter, room temp
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 large egg
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/3 c flour
3/4 c graham cracker crumbs
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 king-sized Hershey's bars
1-7 oz jar of marshmallow fluff (or I substituted mini marshmallows and it worked out fine too)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with Pam. 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. Spread marshmallow fluff over chocolate (which is next to impossible, hence the mini marshmallows!). Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned. cool completely before cutting into bars. Makes 16 squares.
