What's Cooking Wednesday - Give me S'More!

Now don't get me wrong, I like burning marshmallows on a stick as much as any kid.  But it can be such a mess with making the fire, spearing the marshmallows, assembling the s'mores.  You know?

So when the grandkids and their friends came to visit I decided to try a new tactic.  It was too hot to make a fire anyway.

Instead I whipped up a batch of these s'more bars with the enthusiastic assistance of four young girls.  It's amazing how all you have to do is wave a bunch of chocolate bars in the air and ask if anyone wants to help.  I still have a minor limp from the stampede.

Anyway, it's pretty easy and was very tasty.  And if you have a bunch of kids around there won't be much for left overs.  Here is the recipe - enjoy!

S’more bars

•1/2 cup butter, softened

•3/4 cup sugar

•1 egg

•1 teaspoon vanilla extract

•1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour

•3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

•1 teaspoon baking powder

•1/8 teaspoon salt

•5 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each)

•1 cup marshmallow creme 


•In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Set aside 1/2 cup for topping.

 • Press remaining mixture into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Place candy bars over crust; spread with marshmallow crème. Crumble remaining graham cracker mixture over top.

 • Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.  Store them in an airtight container. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
