S'mores Bars
  1. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  6. 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 6 sheets of graham crackers)
  7. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  9. 4 (1.5-ounce) Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars
  10. 1 cup marshmallow crème
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until combined.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture, and beat until combined. Press 1/2 of dough in the pan, spreading evenly. Lay chocolate bars on top of dough, breaking apart as needed to create an even layer of chocolate. Spread marshmallow cream over chocolate bars.
  4. Spread remaining dough over marshmallow cream and chocolate bars. Bake 30 to 35 minutes.
