S'Mores Bars

Do you like S'Mores? I knew I liked them but I had no idea I LOVED them! I especially love them in a bar. So in the last 2 weeks I have made these bars so many times that I have lost count. YIKES!! Even the "cookie dough" part is delish!! After the bars have cooled and you bite down through the cookie, into the marshmallow & the best part.......the chocolate! It is such a smooth bite. So yummy! I know you will enjoy these bars too!
 S'Mores Bars
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbls vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
1 individual pkg of graham crackers, crushed (I kinda like a few big "chunks")
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 King size Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars
7 oz jar of Marshmallow creme

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl cream together butter, sugars & vanilla until light & fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg. Add flour, baking powder & salt. Mix until well combined. Add crushed graham crackers. Mix well. Press 1/2 of cookie mixture in 8 X 8" pan. Lay candy bars on top. Spread marshmallow creme on top of candy bars. Top with remaining cookie dough.  Bake 30 - 35 minutes. Do not overbake.
These bars are so stankin' good!!!! Oh! and the pretty plate you see.....those were my Grandmother's. She passed away in 1997. You know how people say "these are my good dishes I use these when we have company". I think family & friends are the BEST company so these are the dishes I ALWAYS use. (except when I need to put something in microwave ~ the pretty gold trim isn't good in a microwave) Grandma, I love you & miss you. Your dishes make me oh so happy!!
