Introduction: Baked S'mores Bars
I love s’mores and have tried many different variations of this delicious treat. This one happens to be one of my all-time favorites and I make it quite often!
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
4-5 Hershey chocolate bars
1 1 /2 cups marshmallow creme
Step 1: Combine
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8X8 or 9X9 pan.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together and then add in the egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.
Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture and mix at a low speed until well combined.
Step 2: Press
Divide the dough in half and press half of it into the bottom of your prepared pan.
Step 3: Chocolate
Place the chocolate bars evenly over the dough.
Step 4: Marshmallow
Spread the marshmallow fluff evenly over the chocolate layer.
Step 5: Roll Dough
The easiest way that I’ve found to make the top layer is to place the second half of the dough in a large (gallon sized) Ziplock bag and roll it out until it is about the size of your pan.
Step 6: Cut
Use scissors to cut both of the long sides of the bag and pull up the top layer.
Step 7: Bake
Place the bag, dough side down on top of the marshmallow fluff and then peel the bag up.
Clean up the edges and then bake for about 30-35 minutes.
If you want to cut this into nice, neat looking bars, wait until cooled to cut.
Step 8: Enjoy!
In our house, we prefer this warm so we eat it straight out of the oven in not-so-pretty spoonfuls!

The the bag trick for the top crust is an excellent idea! Super clever! : )
