S'mores bars

By now, you should know of our love affair with all things s'mores. That's why I was so excited to try these S'mores bars. And yes, they're delicious. And very quick and easy to make. Let them cool before you scoop them out of the pan because they tend to be messy. Or just stick your face in it. Whatever works.

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (this was six full crackers for me)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king-sized Hershey bars
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows!)

Preheat Oven to 350 and grease an 8 x 8 baking pan.

In mixer bowl (or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, if you prefer - I just love the excuse to use my mixer!), cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then add in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. With mixer on low speed, slowly add flour mixture until combined.

Divide the dough in half and press half into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate over the dough - mine fit perfectly, but you may have to break your pieces. Spread marshmallow over the top. Add remaining dough on top.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Try not to burn your mouth.
