S'Mores Bars

I had a bad week ok...?!?!? God!! Sometimes you just need 8 Hershey Bars!!!

Or you're missing the fun times in the summer of hanging out by the firepit and making s'mores with your buddies. Drinking beers and telling jokes, getting dive-bombed by june bugs and have a great time. In honor of all the fun - I made some s'mores bars. Wicked simple and devilishly decadent, this recipe will substitute even when you CAN make s'mores. They're just that good.

I just found this photocopy and it wasn't credited to anyone. Sorry mystery chef!!

The fixings:
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
18 whole graham crackers crushed, about 3 cups
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
8 milk chocolate bars 1.5 oz. each
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

The work:
Heat oven to 350. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in the graham crackers, salt and flour. Reserve 2 1/2 cups of the mixture, and press the remaining mixture over the bottom of a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan.

Arrange the chocolate bars in a single layer over graham cracker mixture. Sprinkle the marshmallows over that.
Crumble the remaining 2 1/2 cups of graham cracker shtuff over the top of the marshmallows.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Cut into bars and then cool completely. It makes about 2 dozen. I give it

4 out of 5
