First, you must make the marshmallow fluff. This is the easiest thing to do, well, excepting for having to sift the sugar (worst kitchen task ever, sifting...must be a better way, right?)
3 Egg Whites at room temp.
2 cups of Light Corn Syrup (if you are concerned about HFCS, this is different. It's not processed in the same way, and is truly more like just sugar)
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 cups of Powdered Sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
Now add that blasted sifted powdered sugar, and the vanilla....and voila, FLUFF!
You will have waaaaay too much for this recipe, so uh...yeah I hope you like fluff. Or you could be smart, and halve the recipe.
Now that you've made your own fluff, and you're feeling good because the cookies you are making your children are almost totally home made. Move on to the cookies.
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (approximately 7 full graham crackers)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 or 3 super-sized (5 oz.) Dark Chocolate Bars
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (you made this, you're proud of yourself)
Preheat the oven to 350. Butter and sugars in the mixer beaten til fluffy, then add your egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk your dry ingredients together, and then slowly add them to the mixer and mix until combined. When your dough has come together, split it in two.
I am using a 9x9 square pan, but you can use a bit smaller if you prefer a thicker bar. Take one half of the dough and press it into the bottom of the pan
Now, add your bars of chocolate. I am using Hershey's Special Dark for this batch (well, except for where I ran out over there on the right, and then I used Green and Blacks..so those ones are the "fancy" ones) Normally I would use a higher quality dark chocolate, but wanted to see how these would be, before making such an investment ;)
The fun part, the fluff, add to the top and spread. Gooey looking. Yum
Finally, the other layer of cookie. You can't spread and press the dough onto the top like you did the bottom, so put the dough in a plastic bag and roll it out to the size of the gallon bag, which was just a tad larger than the 9x9 pan. Then I cut one side of the bag off, and then laid the crust on top. It wasn't perfect, but we are just eating these anyway!
Finally, you'll bake these at 350, for 30-35 minutes!
