Like most moms, the idea of a new superstore opening, is exciting to me. Chalk it up to age, some sort of stress busting therapy, whatever it is, like IKEA, it’s adult Disneyland. My trip to Landers Superstore in Balintawak, Quezon City yielded some pretty interesting buys such as dry shampoo, sea salt hair spray, a surprisingly delectable ready-made chocolate mousse and marshmallow fluff. I was most excited by the last item because one of my most favorite things in this world are s’mores. I like s’mores so much that I eat chocolate chip cookies with a nuked marshmallow on top of it. Try it, it will change your life.
I wanted to make the most out of the marshmallow fluff and I knew I had to make something that had graham crackers and chocolate in it. Because s’mores. That’s why when I happened upon Sally’s Baking Addiction’s S’mores Cookie Bars recipe, I knew I just had to try it. And let me tell you, it is awesome.
1/2 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Line a medium baking pan (8×8) with aluminum foil and set aside. Preheat your oven to 350 C.
2. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, graham cracker crumbs and baking powder) together and set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and butter together. Mix at medium speed for about 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy.
3. Add in egg and vanilla extract, mix until combined.
4. Turn your mixer on low. Add in your dry ingredients in small increments. Mix only until combined.
5. Spread 2/3 of the graham cookie dough into the baking pan. Try to make an even layer.
6. Spread an even layer of marshmallow fluff on top of the dough. I leave it up to you on how thick this layer will be, but personally, I like a nice think layer.
7. Sprinkle your semi-chocolate chips onto the marshmallow fluff. Again, it’s up to you how much you want to add, but I personally love a whole lot of chocolate.
8. Make a top layer with the remaining graham cookie dough. You may find that there may not be enough dough and that’s okay. I actually like that some of the marshmallow fluff and chocolate are seen. It looks yummier that way.
9. Bake for 25 minutes. Don’t over bake as it may lessen the cookie’s softness.
10. After taking the cookie out of the oven, let it cool before you cut it into squares.
