S'Mores Sandwich Bar Cookies

Ashleigh was suppose to have a reading "camp out" at school on the day we had to pull her out early to leave for our WV/PA trip. They were suppose to read stories and make S'Mores. She was super excited, until I gave her the news that she wouldn't be there for it. I told her we would make some S'Mores Cookies ( I received the recipe in the mail) the night before we left for the trip for a snack on the way up, but sadly we never got the opportunity.

We finally made them today. Ashleigh was busy playing out side, but Cooper and Addison took some time out to help.

***SN: Mixer was not on when pictures were taken :)

Cooper holding the mixer.                                          Addison taking her turn with the mixer.

Addison adding the Vanilla.                                       Cooper cracking an egg.

Both of them pouring the dry ingredients in.

They would be helping out if they didn't get to lick the beaters...

We mixed everything together and placed part of the cake mixture into the pan....

Baked and then added the chocolate...

Added the marshmallows and the rest of the cake mix...

Baked again...

And after cooling for a while (could have been longer but everyone was excited to try it)...

It turned out super good according to everyone ( I haven't had a piece yet)...Cooper even asked me to make them again ;)

S'Mores Sandwich Bar Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham crackers, coarsely chopped  (I put them in the blender for a thinner consistancy) 
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 Hershey Milk Chocolate Bars (1.55oz  each)
3 cups miniature marshmallows


1. Heat over to 350*. Grease 8 inch square baking pan.

2. Beat butter and sugar until well blended in large bowl. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir togetherflour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder,and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Press half of dough into the pan. Bake 15 minutes.

3. Arrange unwrapped chocolate bars over baked layer, breaking as needed to fit. Sprinkle on marshmallows; scatter bits of remaining dough over marshmallows, forming a top layer. Bake 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown (I cooked for 18 minutes). Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into 16 bars.
