S'mores Bars

(originally made 8/2010)

It's been a dreary, blah day in NH.   It's Jake's last week of vacation, so I thought we'd bake something fun today.    I'd tucked these away earlier in the summer, and it seemed like the perfect thing to make together.      Sstezel gave me the great tip to microwave the fluff so that it was pourable and it made it much easier to spread.    We somehow bumbled the amounts and put the 1/2c worth on the bottom and had much more crumble on top than TOH did.   I also used an 11x7 pan instead of a 9x9.   Mine baked in exactly 25 mins. 

We were in a hurry to sample, so they aren't as neat as the ones on the site, but we didn't care  :)  The verdict?   Jake loves them.   Me?  While they taste like s'mores, I miss the crunchy toasted marshmallow component of a real s'more.   They are very rich, and I would definitely cut the portions small.
