S'More, please!

This is a recipe I created in high school, in Florida, that came out of "need"... The need for a portable & easy beach snack that did not need the campfire (nor refrigeration) but had the same feel. S'Mores evoke so many good memories & these are really delish (if I do say so myself). All this Girl Scout cookie talk right now made me think of these... & they are good any time but especially for a summer bar-b-que (Can y'all tell what I am daydreaming about?)

Lishie's S’Mores Bars

    • 1 & 1/2 sticks Butter, @ room temperature
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 3 cups crushed (food processor) graham crackers 
    • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 cups chocolate chips*
    • 3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
    Pre-heat oven to 350°, grease or spray 13x9x2-inch baking pan (or two, 8x8 brownie pans). 

    Beat butter and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together crushed graham crackers, flour, and salt. Stir the graham cracker mixture into the butter/sugar/egg/vanilla mixture. Should become one, big crumbly clump.

    Press about 1/2 cup or more, if needed, of the graham cracker mix over the bottom of the greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle half (1 cup) of the chocolate chips on top. Sprinkle 3 cups of the mini marshmallows on top. Crumble, by hand, the rest of the graham cracker mix on top. Sprinkle last 1/2 cup of the mini marshmallows on top and finally, sprinkle the rest (1 cup) of the chocolate chips on top.

    Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brown.
