From Linda Cicero’s Cook’s Corner Column
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 (2.6-ounce) milk chocolate bars, or equivalent
1 1/2 cups marshmallow cream (from a jar)
Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
Press half the dough into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. (Two king-sized Hershey’s bars fit perfectly side by side. If using other chocolate break to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick.) Spread marshmallow cream on top with hot, wet spoon. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Makes 3 dozen.
