S’more Bars

Oddly enough, when asking my volleyball team for ideas about what to bake, the first thing mentioned was “S’more Cookies”. Not being a lover of marshmallows and never having had a s’more cookie or brownie, I immediatly dismissed the idea in my mind. On the way home from practice, in a cab with a couple girls on my team, I look up recipes for S’mores cookies. Nothing too interesting came up, but the pictures I saw look sooooo good. So I decided that I would make up a recipe for S’mores cookies on my own. After a little deliberation, I decided that S’mores brownies would probably work better. I looked up a recipe for S’mores bars and came across a recipe that looked delicious. I loosely followed this recipe, adding and subtracting a bunch of ingredients I brought these bars on Sunday and my team LOVED them. My coach ever said that he was willing to buy me the ingredients if I would make them for him again. Its like a campfire, smokey, chocolatey s’more, but even tastier. These are definitely my new go-to bar recipe. Enjoy!

1cup butter, softened

3cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1cups flour

3cup graham cracker crumbs

1 teaspoon baking powder

  2. Beat butter and sugar together until well blended in a large bowl. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
  3. In another bowl stir together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture, beating until blended.
  4. Press half the dough into the prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes.
  5. Spread the chocolate chips over the baked layer. Sprinkle with marshmallows. Scatter remaining dough over the marshmallows, forming a top layer.
  6. Bake 10- 15 minutes or until just lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting.

Love,
