S'mores Bars

I saw these sometime last week and knew I had to make them.  These are gooey and just awesome!  A seriously great cookie bars.  I made a variation of these before, from my friend Cristine's blog we loved them.  These are a little different because they use marshmallow creme instead of marshmallows, but both are wonderful.  I never posted the other recipe because I was not blogging yet.  So here it is!  If you like s'mores, you will love these!

from Lovin' from the oven
  • 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 Hershey's milk chocolate bars (if you want a more subtle chocolate flavor use regular sized chocolate bars; enough to fit)
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (7 1/2 oz jar)

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. This part can be tricky. 
After making all my patties, it looked like this.
I made little disks with the dough and pieced them together over the marshmallow creme. 
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Makes 16 cookie bars.
