S'more Cookie Bars (Adapted From Hershey's Kitchens)
1/2 cup or 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup Stevia in the Raw (you may use granulated sugar)
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 4 (1.55 oz. each) HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Bars
1 jar of marshmallow creme
Heat over to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan or line with foil and grease for easy cutting later on. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Press half of dough in prepared pan.
Arrange chocolate bars over dough, breaking as needed to fit. Spread with marshmallow creme. Scatter bits of remaining over marshmallow; carefully press to form a layer. (This part was a bit challenging. I used more dough on the bottom layer, so the top layer was more of a crumble.)
Bake 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. 16 bars. These are best to be eaten after being cooled off and slightly warm and gooey. By the time we had ours, they were more like room temperature, so we nuked them for a few seconds in the microwave. Worked like a charm. ;) Tasted just like a s'mores!
Time to make a wish!Enjoy,
You will also notice I didn't use sugar but stevia. His SIL had the brilliant idea to sub that for sugar, since it is cup-to-cup in measurements. I was worried of an aftertaste but with the chocolate and marshmallow it evened out and you would of never known! I bought a bag of the stevia she has and I'm going to start subbing it for sugar in certain recipes. Can't hurt and will save on the calories!
