Baked S’mores

baked_smores

Good heavens to Betsy (or maybe Betty? As in Crocker?) . . . these s’mores are the best s’mores I’ve ever eaten. They take the cake! Can I say that? Will that offend cake? I sure hope not because, boy do I love cake. AND s’mores. See, here’s the problem with plain graham cracker s’mores: they are too crunchy and too messy, unless you really are sitting around a campfire . . . and then anything goes. But how often are we sitting around a campfire in real life? We need soft neat s’mores. Enter: baked s’mores. You get a soft yet golden layer of graham cracker cookie on the outside and delicious soft layers of marshmallow and chocolate on the inside. And you can eat it with a fork!

 

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1/4 c brown sugar

1/2 c sugar

1 egg

1 t vanilla

1 1/3 c flour

3/4 c graham cracker crumbs (7 graham crackers)

1 t baking powder

1/4 t salt

3 5-oz. Hershey milk chocolate bars

1 1/2 cups marshmallow crème

 

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt and mix until combined. Grease bottom of 11 x 7 pan. Press half of dough into bottom of pan. Place chocolate bars over dough, breaking into pieces as necessary to cover dough. Spread marshmallow crème over chocolate. (Marshmallow crème will settle, filling in the low spots, while you prepare top crust.) Flatten other half of dough by placing in gallon-size Ziploc bag and using rolling pin to flatten to 11 x 7 size. Cut away one side of the Ziploc bag. Place dough on marshmallow layer and peel away other side of the Ziploc. Bake at 350°F for 29-33 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and cut into bars.

      Hello dear! Oh, yes. You totally will love these! Gooey, melty deliciousness!! Nice hearing from you!

    Carol, you are just being ridiculous with these things. After I make them and eat them, I’m going to put a sign over each of my buttocks that says “Made by Carol” with an arrow pointing down at each merrily bobbing cheek. I don’t even think that using carob instead of chocolate will be enough to save me from my fat pants.

    • Carol says:

      Haha! Terri, you always make me laugh. I’m honored to be blamed for the bobbing cheeks. We should turn that into a blogger award! LOL!

      • Terri @ that's some good cookin' says:

        Now THAT would be hilarious! How do you think the blogging world would take to being given that award? Are they ready for it? A simple line drawing of a rotund backside with the words “bobbing cheeks award” written just below them. hahahahahaha–I am really sick in the head, never have grown out of laughing at potty humor.

        • Carol says:

          Us and our potty humor really just means we are young at heart, right? LOL!!! If you think about it, it really is quite a compliment to be given such an award. We might have to convince some bloggers out there, but it really, truly would be such an honor. Means their food is good!! (I am so laughing right now!!!)
