S'Mores Bars



I have mentioned before about how I have never camped, but I love camping food.

The only thing that I do not love about camping food, is trying to cook the food and keep three children out of the fire at the same time.

Stressful.

String Beane keeps wanting to throw more pine straw in the fire so it can be ''really big".

Butter Beane would be the one to jump in to prove that it is not hot like I said it was.

Jelly Beane is so busy trying to grab my marshmallow stick that I am afraid that she will fall in the fire.

So this past weekend, I decided to make things easy on myself and make some camp food inside.

Here are the S'Mores Bars.  They were so good.  The  marshmallow squirted out and the chocolate was melted and gooey.  Go on and make you some.  In the oven where things are safe.  Then go outside and eat some around the campfire all relaxed.

Ingredients
1/2 C butter, softened (Flieshmann's unsalted margarine is milk free)

3/4 C brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 C flour
3/4 C graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 (7 ounce) container marshmallow fluff
1 C chocolate chips (Gharidelli Semi Sweet is milk free)

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cream the butter and sugar together until creamy.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix.  Add the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt and stir until a dough forms.  
Line an 8x8 baking dish with plastic wrap.  
Take half of the dough and press into the 8x8 dish.  (This will be the top of the S'mores bars)  Lift the dough out of the dish using the plastic wrap and set aside.
Spray the 8x8 pan with cooking spray and press the other half of the dough into the pan.

Microwave the Marshmallow fluff for 30 seconds.  Pour over the cookie dough.  Spread to the edges.  
Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Take the dough you set aside and flip it onto the chocolate chips.  
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Let her cool down a little and then slice it up and eat all relaxed by the fire.

Here is another look at the beautiful things.

I adapted this recipe to make these milk free. 

I am linking up at Metamorphosis Monday , Allergy Free Wednesday, and these other awesome parties.  Go check them out!
