Reese's Smore Bars~

This time of year feels like I put 10,000 pounds of sweets in my mouth....{maybe I do!}...it's like the bulk up in Spring before living on fresh fruits and veggies for the Summer! I'm not complaining by any means!

We have so many birthdays in March n' April along with holidays, that I'm always looking for new recipes!  This one my husband said, "This is Devil's Food!...It keeps pulling you back to eat more!" Seriously, it is sinfully good!

Not only am I an addict for Snickers, but Reese's Cups come at an amazingly close second! For some reason the peanut butter eggs at Easter taste even better! I stock up and put them in the freezer! When I "need" one, I pull it out, let it thaw for 15 min and then eat it quickly so that my daughter doesn't see me!...Only because I'm always telling her to "make a healthy choice!" {It's for her own good, as I scarf chocolate down my mouth in privacy!..There must be something wrong with me, but I'm not ready to fix it quite yet!}

Anyhoo, onto what you'll need to make these delicious bars!~

Cookie dough~ right off of the Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels bag! {Chocolate chips!}

 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter softened (2 sticks)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
(Leaving out the chocolate chips!!)
1 big bag of regular size Reese's Peanut butter cups
1 jar of marshmellow fluff

Preheat oven to 375
Lightly spray your 9X13 with non stick spray
Line the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish with half of your cookie dough {press it down but don't compact it!}
On top of the cookie dough, line it with Reese's cups, top side facing down
Cover entire surface with marshmellow fluff
Cover the top with the remaining 1/2 of your cookie dough! It's a little tricky, but even if you have some clumps they cook out flat!
Bake for aprx. 20 minutes (cooking time varies on your own oven!)

I tasted something similar at a party and after asking about it, she make the dough differently, but this tasted almost the same! I also googled it...I'm not the best at breaking down a recipe on my own to make it... I found this one here!

With an ice cold glass of milk....Heavenly....ahhhhhh....
