This hot weather reminds me of camping. My family and I used to go on a week long vacation every year during the summer. We visited Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, the Badlands and many state parks. The weather never seemed to cooperate. It was either extremely hot or raining like cats and dogs. But we made many memories in a little pop-up camper. This recipe I found reminds me a lot of camping and summer. Anything with the name s’mores has to be delicious!
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 graham crackers, crushed into fine crumbs
- 2 Giant Hershey’s milk chocolate bars, 7 ounces each (Known as XL bars)
- 1 jar marshmallow cream, 7 ounces
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
- Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs.
- Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the baking dish. Press the chocolate bars on top of the dough. They should make an even layer in an 8×8 pan. Melt the peanut butter for about 30 seconds in the microwave and drizzle it over the chocolate bars.
- Spread the marshmallow cream over the chocolate and peanut butter.
- Roll the remaining 1/3 dough onto the chocolate foil wrappers (or some other nonstick surface). When you’ve made an even square, gently peel it off and press it on top of the marshmallow cream.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Let cool for best serving results.
Conclusion: Briana, a fellow coworker, called them “sinfully delicious.” And sometime in the afternoon at work, they were all gone. So apparently they weren’t too bad. With the heat, they didn’t really set up and stayed gooey all day. I only tasted a little bit (due to the fact my little one was not in the mood for sweets) but from what I tasted it seemed very good. They were easy to make. The only hard part was spreading the marshmallow cream because it was extremely sticky. I used aluminum foil to put the top graham cracker layer on. The marshmallow layer also poofed up a bit during baking so it didn’t look picture perfect. But honestly, it’s all about the taste!
