peanut butter cup s’mores bars.
Posting about our camping trip earlier this week reminded me that I never shared the recipe of the yummy treats I made for Trevor back in his welcome home post. I thought I would share it now!
Let me start of by saying that Trevor is a huge fan of peanut butter (I mean, who isn't really?!), and because of this, I have made it my mission to keep introducing new yummy peanut butter inspired treats to him :) Thankfully for pinterest, I found this sweet treat, it had Trevor's name written all over it.
Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Bars
(via Mel’s sweet life)
yield: 16 large/20 small squares
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
16 peanut butter cups, regular size
1 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff*
*Fluff is pretty impossible to measure, so this doesn’t have to be an exact amount, just kind of eyeball it. As long as you have enough to cover the PB cups, you’re good to go.
+ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dishing with parchment paper; coat lightly with cooking spray.
+ In a large bowl of the bowl of stand mixer, beat butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Scrape down the sides. With the mixer on low, stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, and graham cracker crumbs until mixed.
+Spread 2/3 of the dough on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Lightly press the peanut butter cups into the dough, then spread marshmallow fluff on top. Press the remaining dough on a non-stick surface into the shape of an 8×8 square. Place the square on top of the fluff and press down lightly.
+Bake for 30 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown. Allow to cool for at least two hours* to give the bars a chance to set, then remove from the pan and cut into squares with a large, sharp knife.
+Let cool - 2+ hours.
*I found the dough to be a little hard to manipulate. I suggest that you put flour on your hands or on a spoon, it makes a huge difference in being able to spread it without it sticking to everything!
P.S. Don't think I have forgotten about tid + bits on thursdays! I have decided to make it a monthly link up as opposed to every thursday. So be getting your tid+bits from the month together because the last thursday of every month I will be doing a tid + bits post that you can link up to!
