These are wonderful, gooey goodness. I know it looks a mess and it is, but worth every bite. Better than the campfire S’mores and I’m going to make some more (guess that’s were they got their name) on Super bowl Sunday cause they brought us luck. I used Hershey’s with Almonds cause that’s what I had. I guess you could experiment and put in lots of different candy bars. I used 3 medium-sized candy bars.They said King Size on the wrapper, but I think this recipe means those great BIG ones. I could have almost used a 4th one to break up and put around the edges. Was really good without it. Super easy, super good. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.I prepared these while watching my 49’ers win the game to head to Superbowl. So maybe the are “Super-lucky-Superbowl-S’more Cookie Bars”
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
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low-speed until combined.
Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick. Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Makes 16 cookie bars.
❤ My tip: To make the top layer I placed the pan I was using down on a piece of parchment paper and traced it. Then took my dough and patted it down to fit into the square that I just traced. Placed aside and when ready for top layer I just turned parchment paper with dough upside down and placed onto marshmallow layer. Baked,cooled maybe 15 minutes and we ate. Mike and I had the same response, “YUMMO”
