"S'more Please?"

Apparently, today is National Peanut Butter Lovers' Day. So, I decided to let you in on a fun recipe for s'more bars. Instead of using graham crackers this is on top of a peanut butter cookie base. The recipe is from a Southern Living Favorite Cookies book/magazine. I actually had to call my mom to get the recipe. When she gave it to me, she said that the pages were stuck together...that's how I knew it was the right recipe! I made this for my Pediatric Interest Group meeting on Monday...there were no left-overs!
S'more Bars
½ cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup chunky PB
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
¼ cup salted roasted peanuts

Preaheat oven to 375 degrees F. Beat butter at medium speed until creamy. Add sugar and mix well. Add peanut butter, egg, and vanilla and mix. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Spread in a 13X9 greased pan. Spread marshmallow cream on top of the peanut butter mixture. This is a little tricky but works better if you let the cream "rest" in the air a little before you spread it. Sprinkle chocolate morsels and peanuts over marshmallow cream. Bake @ 375 for 18 minutes or until marshmallow cream is browned (I think I did for 21 minutes). Cool and enjoy.

Alisha - They're such a childlike thing but I like them, too!

Brilynn - All the better...no temptation for my house!

Peabody - Gooey is right!

Anna - I wouldn't have either, except Hungry Girl tells what celebration is being held each day. I figured I should do something!

Hmmm.. I like peanut butter, a lot. And I love it with chocolate but I'm not sure I could cope with all the sugary stuff in this recipe. It looks interesting though!

Kristen said...

Oh me oh my... that is one fantastic looking dessert. I love anything S'mores related!

Claire said...

Erika - Oh my is right...that's why I give it away!

RDM - Somehow the peanut butter part isn't all that sweet but the topping definitely is! Cut in small pieces! :-)

Kristen - They're fun, aren't they! Fun for kiddos, too.
