unfortunately, it is monday again and i am gearing up for a busy work week, but luckily it is a short week for me. on friday, we are off to berekley springs, west virginia with about fourteen friends and three dogs for a weekend at the river. i can't wait. we are sure to spend our nights around the fire pit, so i figured why not get the week started off right?!?! s'more are great anytime, no fire required! enjoy!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumb
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup mini marshmallow
1 cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9-by-9-inch baking pan; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs and baking powder; set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg until well combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly beat flour mixture into butter mixture.

4. Reserve 1/4 of the dough and set aside. Press the remaining dough evenly into greased pan. Top with chocolate chips and sprinkle with marshmallows.  Scatter the reserved dough over in clumps leaving some marshmallows and chocolate chips peeking through.

5. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into bars and remove from pan.
