Smore Cookie Bars. Seriously one of the best inventions in the world. A graham cracker flavored cookie, a layer of yummy melted milk chocolate, a fluffy layer of marshmallow goo, and another layer of cookie. Delicious. I've made them multiple times, and never have they failed to impress. Probably not wise to serve at a very fancy gathering, as they tend to get a little messy. But anywhere else, throw these easy cookie bars together and serve them warm. :) I found these here.

What You'll Need:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)(though one day, I am going to try this with whole marshmallows and see what happens)

Preheat your oven to 350, prepare your 8x8 pan... 

So in a bowl, cream together the butter and both the kinds of sugar until it gets light. This whole "creaming" thing is another one of those "not if you live in a dorm" kind of luxuries, so I usually just melt the butter and mix it in and pretend I followed the directions. Then add the egg and vanilla, stir til combined, set aside.
In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, crumbs, baking powder, salt). Once this is all together, throw it into the butter mixture. However, if, once again, either you're lazy or have limited supplies or what not the only real benefit of this step is combining the crumbs and the flour, so I usually just skip it and throw it all straight into the butter mixture because its less bowls to wash. But shhh, dont tell. 
Next, you're gonna divide the cookie dough in half, and put one half of it into the bottom of your 8x8 pan and make an even layer. Then place the chocolate bars over them, they should probably fit perfectly but if not break and make it fit! Then spread the marshmallow fluff. Fun! Sticky! Yay! I've learned this works a lot more effectively when the marshmallow fluff is not cold. Next, the really fun and sticky part, putting the second layer of cookie on top of the marshmallow fluff... Good luck! According to the recipe, the easiest way is by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together. I usually just kind of go at it and hope it works. 
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned and it smells wonderful. The recipe says cool completely, but I definitely prefer them warm. And with leftovers I usually just microwave them for a few seconds at a time to warm them up, and they stay delicious.
