Smore's Bars

I have been craving summer lately... Even though where I live, the weather would have you believing that it was summer right now,  I have been craving things like boating, hiking, and camping. You know, summer things!  So since I can't have the campfire and camping right now, I thought I would bring it to us! These smore's bars seriously might just be my new favorite treat! And that's saying something considering what a sweet eater that I am! These bars along with my tin-foil dinners (recipe to come tomorrow) had us all singing around the kitchen table (ok, not really. But that would have been fun!)

1/2 cup butter (1 stick softened)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5-6 regular sized Hershey bars (or for a more prominent chocolate flavor use 2 king size Hershey bars)
1 (7oz) jar Marshmallow Fluff (next time I am going to use 2 jars to make it more marshmallowy)

Preheat the oven to *350.  Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish.

Cream together the butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Beat till well incorporated.  Next, mix together the flour, graham cracker crumbs (to get crumbs, I chopped mine in the food processor) salt, and baking powder. Slowly add to the creamed butter mixture.  Press half of the mixture into the prepared pan.

Next, lay out the chocolate bars (you may have to break them apart to fit in the pan) On top of that, evenly spread the marshmallow cream. Now this next part can be a little tricky. I just used my hands and flattened the remainder dough to fit over the top of the marshmallow.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Let cool completely.
