One treat (of many) I cannot pass up

A few weeks ago we had a baby shower for my sister. It was a lovely affair with primary colored pinwheels, little alphabet blocks, and of course, M&Ms. I think we hosted a nice little shower for her. What I didn't expect was that she was going to be bringing me a treat. For some reason, Laura felt inspired to make something called S'more Bars after finding a recipe at mybakingobsession.com.

Now, if you know me, you know I like marshmallows as much as anything. And if you know me well, you know that I have eaten more than four s'mores at a sitting (and could eat even more if no one was giving me that "are you seriously going to stuff one more of those in your face?" looks). I love s'mores. I really do. I also know that in the past, I have had s'more bars. Not impressive. I don't like the attempt at a graham cracker crust. Too buttery, to hard, and not at all like a graham cracker on its own.

Well, this recipe was different. Instead of using the crushed graham crackers mixed with butter, crushed graham crackers are mixed with a nice fluffy dough. Half of this dough is spread on the bottom of a pan. Next, you layer on two huge dark chocolate bars. Next, you spread a jar of marshmallow creme on top (I was dying at this point). Finally, you put the rest of the graham cracker dough on top of that and bake it. Mine were not as neat and tidy as my sister's, but they were delicious nonetheless. I think Jaime had one, I took four to my grandparents, and the rest were never heard from again. That's weird.

So, anyway, the point of this post is to say that this is THE recipe for S'more Bars if you have been looking for one. If you haven't been looking for one, make it anyway. And don't even think about commenting that they sound too sweet. I don't want to hear it. That is not even possible.

Here is the evidence that the bars, at one time, did exist. Now they are gone.
