Cookie Topped S'More Bars



YAY! So two posts already this week! Im proud of myself for accomplishing my goal this week. Can't say that about all domains of my life, but at least I am successful here. And where else would you want to be successful than in the world of sweet and dessert?! Well dessert, especially chocolate is a love of mine so I definitely needed s'more....hahaha...get it? Some more...S'More. Yes lame, but I did enjoy writing it! But if you know me, its quite obvious that I am a corny joke person. If you ask my sister she could name a ton that I told her and the many ways she thought I was lame. Which by the way, I always comment that my sister is the only one that follows my blog but a friend from school just told me that she reads these posts too (totally made my day). So to her "Hi! Caitlin :)"

My husband also enjoyed these BUT he did have something to say, which definitely made me think. He said that he really likes all my desserts but has become "chocolated out." OMG! How in the world is that even possible?! 26 years of constant chocolate eating and thats never happened to me. Which I guess is good for our marriage...I like chocolate and he does not eat mine ;) So to my now TWO followers...I guess Ill be having to switch gears sometime in the near future to plan a non-chocolatey dessert (which will not be the next post because I already planned it).

Be forwarned- I took a lot of pictures. Why? Well I noticed that the part of blogs that most attracts people are the nice pictures, with cool angles and nice backgrounds. I thought I would not give into that (taking pictures with my iPhone and all), but I've given in and started taking pictures with my cannon powershot and Im attempting to try to take cleaner pictures and overall just look more appealing. So be patient as a I learn some photography skills ;) And since I have a soon-to -be brand new mixer, its been put on the hubster's radar that I'd like one of those SLR cameras :) I was pretty proud of him though, he suggested teh BBQ background with the S'Mores!


Gooey Chocolatey Goodness
The Texas Heat started melting my S'More as if it were ontop a campfire.

Delicious! See the melting going on?


COOKIE TOPPED S'MORE BARS
Adapted from Lovin the Oven

INGREDIENTS

Preheat oven to 350F degrees

S'MORE
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumble
1 stick of butter
2 King-size Hershey Bars
1 jar of marshmallow cream
  
COOKIE LAYER
1 stick of butter (softened)
1/2 c brown sugar

DIRECTIONS

Blend 1 stick of butter and 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumble together until graham cracker is moist. Spread out evenly across a 8 x 8 pan and press down to form  even, firm crust. Then cover evenly with marshmallow cream. Top with two King-size Hershey Bars. In a separate bowl, cream together remaining butter and sugars. Once smooth, add in egg and vanilla extract. Then mix in dry ingredients- graham cracker crumble (1/2 cup), all purpoes flour, baking powder, and salt (I like to mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and then add to wet mixture). Mix on low speed. Once mixed well, add in chocolate chips. Do not over mix. Spread cookie dough evenly across the Hershey Bars. Bake for 35-45 minutes depending on cookie consistency that you like doughy or firm). I baked my S'Mores  for about 45 minutes.

Enjoy,
Chika
