S’more Bars

If you have not yet discovered the delightful cooking and philosophy blog Mennonite Girls Can Cook, it is time you did.  Here is a recent recipe from their daily collection, which I only altered in minor ways, doubling the size and reducing the flour and sugar just a bit.

S’MORE BARS

 http://www.mennonitegirlscancook.ca/2012/05/smore-bars.html

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups graham wafer crumbs
  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups marshmallow creme, or about a 7 ounce jar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips, I  use semi-sweet
  1. Line an 9×16″ pan with foil leaving a slight overhang. Spray foil with cooking spray. Don’t forget this important step.
  2. Beat butter and sugar until light, beat in egg and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Whisk together flour, cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt.
  4. Turn mixer to low and add dry ingredients to the moist ingredients mixing until well combined, as for a cookie dough.
  5. Press half of the mixture evenly into foil lined pan.
  6. Spoon marshmallow fluff on cookie base and gently spread it out, spreading it is easier if you dip the spoon in hot water.
  7. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the marshmallow.
  8. Scatter remaining cookie base over the top in clumps.
  9. Bake in 350º for 30 minutes, until golden brown.
  10. Cool completely, then remove from pan using the foil overhangs to lift it out.
  11. Cut in bars and serve

These are rich and delicious. 

The reason I call Mennonite Girls Can Cook a “cooking and philosophy blog” is because of their weekly feature, Bread for the Journey. Here is my favorite entry ever: Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread.

  4. I think I’ll try these with marshmallows instead of the fluff – I always have marshmallows and never have fluff. They look yummy!
