Pinnable Me Friday: dessert!

Pinterest has become my go to place for inspiration. There are so many pretty and inspiring things to look at on there. I have been on a s'mores kick lately and when I saw these cookie bars on pinterest I couldn't resist making them.





Ingredients:

* 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)

Directions:

1. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with Pam and preheat oven to 350.

2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Next, beat in the egg and the vanilla.

3. In a small bowl, combine flour, crushed graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add this to the butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.

4. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place the Hershey's bar over the dough in a single layer. Spread the marshmallow creme over the chocolate. I would recommend spraying the measuring cup and spoon with Pam to prevent sticking. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the creme. This can be tricky and is best done in small pieces, like shingles.

5. Bake for 30 minutes until lightly browned. It is important to let the bars cool completely before cutting.

6. The bars are delicious microwaved for a few seconds before eating. Or at room temperature. You can't really go wrong. :)

The original recipe came from Lovin' From the Oven.

I bought a couple of these cute treat boxes at Target and took the s'mores to my in-laws' house last weekend.
