Wow...January brings with it some icy, freezing conditions that just bite at your skin, huh. My family went skiing the other day and it was so cold, the face of one of my children was swollen from the low temperatures. Is anyone out there missing warmer temperatures??? Well, I can't bring warm weather, but I can offer a summer treat that will remind you of campfires, swimming and the heat of summer. NOTHING says summer like S'MORES.
½ C brown sugar
½ C butter, softened
1 large egg
¾ tsp vanilla extract
¾ C graham cracker crumbs
¾ C whole wheat flour
¾ tsp salt
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
1 ½ C chocolate chips ( I like semi-sweet, but if you prefer, you can use milk chocolate)
1-7 oz. jar of marshmallow cream
Cream sugar and butter. Add egg and vanilla and beat for 30 seconds. Add in graham cracker crumbs, flour, salt and baking powder and beat for one minute. Take half of the dough and spoon it into a greased 8X8 square pan. Use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly over the pan. Evenly coat dough with chocolate chips making sure to cover the dough. Spoon marshmallow cream over the chocolate and spread to cover chocolate. Take the rest of the dough by small handfuls and flatten them out and lay them over the marshmallow cream. You will have to use your fingers to spread the dough over the marshmallow, but it should cover almost all of it. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
