Ok, I have to admit after reading that title, what could be wrong with this delicious sounding baked item. Nothing, I think. It has all the key items... Peanut Butter, Chocolate, and Marshmallow. Just the thought of all of them baked together into an ooey gooey mess.... mmmmm.
Sorry about that. I was just thinking and I started to go bleary eyed.
Ok, back to the now. I found the recipe on Pinterest. (Yes, I know I have been finding a few things there recently, but in my defense it is a great source for many things.) Anyway, the woman's blog that I found actually adapted the recipe from two different sources. Here is the one I used and is also has the links to the other recipe... The Sweet Life.
Overall, the bars turned out great and tasted divine. I did have a few issues with it though. I know how could I with all ooey gooey goodness. But, alas I did. And in all fairness it was not with the taste as much as it was in the making and execution. My biggest problem was the graham cracker "dough" was very sticky. And I mean very sticky. I know the easy solution to this is adding more flour, but will need to be careful not to add too much. The only other issue was with the dough again. The recipe called for the use of a 8x8 pan and divide the dough. Well, if I barely filled the bottom of the pan and was only able to cover about 2/3 of the top. Now because the dough did not completely cover all the marshmallow, those spots were nicely toasted, which is not too bad. I feel an easy solution to this is just doubling the dough ingredients. Another thought I had that might work would be maybe just using a PB cookie dough and if you still wanted some graham cracker flavor just evenly swap out flour for the crackers.
So, what do you think?
This will absolutely be something I will make again. Hopefully sooner then later. Hope you try it out for yourself.
Until next time..... Happy Baking!
