Nothing quite say's "summer party" better than a platter of hot and gooey S'mores.
At the recent planned a beach wedding for one of my delightful couples, the venue set up a fabulous live S'mores station complete with a roaring fire pit, mounds of marshmallows, Hersey's chocolate bars and stacks of graham crackers. Ice cold milk was tray passed in cute little shot glasses, which served as the perfect accompaniment to these hot melted treats.We've moved! Please savor the rest of this post at Ariel Yve Design
Ever since that wonderful night, I've been on the search for an easy everyday S'mores recipe (no fire pit required). Coincidentally, just days after my client's wedding, one of my other fabulous clients "tweeted" a link to the following everyday S'mores recipe, courtesy of Nicole from Hugs and Besos. Over the weekend, I tried out this recipe, and I must say that they were delicious! In the words of Homer Simpson "Gggggggaaaaa....S'moresssss!"
S'mores Bars Recipe Source: Adapted from Baking Bites Bars
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup graham cracker crumbs (about 7 full-sized graham cracker sheets, whizzed in the food processor until fine)
1 tsp baking power
¼ tsp salt
6 Hershey bars broken into pieces (sheets of 3)1 ½ cups marshmallow fluff
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at low speed until combined.
Divide the dough in half and press half of the dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan.
Place the chocolate bars over the dough.
Evenly place dollops of marshmallow fluff over top of the chocolate layer. If possible, spread smooth.
On a well-floured surface, roll out the remaining graham cracker dough into an 8”x 8” square (approximately). Place over the marshmallow layer and press down to form a somewhat even layer.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Makes…16 cookie bars
