S'mores Bars

The holidays are here! It's time for eating, eating, eating!

This is a messy but deliciously indulgent treat. The combination of crunchy graham crackers, gooey marshmallows, and a soft cookie can satisfy any craving. Despite the three layers, this recipe was very easy to prepare.

The chocolate cookie base has a brownie-like texture and softness.  The base was very thick, so go for a larger baking pan if you prefer a thinner cookie. For a holiday twist, I used Kraft's red and green marshmallows. I broke the graham crackers into squares, thinking I could eat this easily by hand. I ended up using a fork, so next time I will break the graham crackers into smaller pieces.

Do you have any creative s'more recipes?
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup marshmallows
9 graham cracker squares

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add egg and mix. Gradually add in cocoa powder, flour, and baking soda. Pour into an 8x8 baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven, and turn to broil.
Place marshmallows in an even layer on top of the cookie. Return pan to the oven for 3-5 minutes to allow the marshmallows to melt slightly.
Remove the pan from the oven, and place graham cracker squares on top of the marshmallow, pressing down slightly.
Finally return the pan to the oven for 3-5 minutes.
Allow the bars to cool before slicing.
Yields 9 servings.
