A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

The MUST TRY s'mores recipe I made this weekend... twice

Sunday, July 5, 2015

One of my favorite parts about Fourth of July weekend is spending time with our friends and family. And the other favorite part is the food! 

This weekend, I wanted to try something new for our rib cookoff on Friday with our friends Nick and Alishia. Enter my Pinterest boards. I seem to be queen of pinning a billion recipes and never really making them. This summer, my goal has been to try one new recipe a week, and so far, I've been succeeding! This awesome recipe was no exception! 

I'm a sucker for anything s'more flavored. Coffee. Chapstick. Actual s'mores. I love them all! And this seemed like the perfect sweet treat to take to a barbecue. The recipe came together pretty quickly, and I actually had most of the ingredients already on hand! 

Adapted from rachelschultz.com

Ingredients:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1+ teaspoon vanilla (I added a touch over a teaspoon)
1 cup flour
1 cup + 1 extra shake graham cracker crumbs (I added a touch over a cup to really get a good graham cracker flavor) 
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3+ Hershey bars (I used 3 plus some leftover chocolate pieces)
1 and 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg, and vanilla together in large bowl. In a seperate bowl, stir flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. 
3. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into butter mixture. After mixing, you may need to hand knead to form in to more of a dough. 
4. Press half of dough into a greased 8x8 pan. Set chocolate bars on top. 
5. Spread marshmallow fluff over chocolate and top with remaining dough. (I use the term spread loosely, as it's really hard to spread something this sticky!)
6. Top with remaining dough. 
7. Bake 35 minutes, or until golden.
These came out totally amazing. So amazing, in fact, that I made them a second time on Saturday for a party at our best man's house! Both times I served these, they had cooled, but I'm pretty sure they'd be even better piping hot. Just don't burn your mouth on chocolatey marshmallowy goo! 

What's your go to dessert for barbecues? I'm always looking for new ideas!
