½cupunsalted butter, softened room temperature(113 gr)
¼cupgranulated sugar(55 gr)
⅔cuplight brown sugar, packed(130 gr)
1large eggroom temperature
1large egg yolkroom temperature
1 ¾cupall purpose flour(209 gr)
4ozsemi-sweet chocolate chunks
2oz(4 crackers) graham crackers, cut in bite size pieces
Prep: Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Then, line the inside of an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper, making sure to leave enough hanging over the sides to make the bars easier to remove later. Set the pan aside.
Also, chop up the chocolate into chunks, as well as the four graham crackers. You want them both broken up into bite sized pieces. Set aside for later use.
Make cookie dough: In a bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and both sugars on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture looks like wet sand. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Next, add in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again.
Then, mix in the all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt on low speed until combined. After that, stir in the chocolate chunks and graham cracker pieces on low speed until combined. If desired, you can set some chocolate and crackers aside for topping later.
Assembly: Press about half of the cookie dough into the prepared baking dish. Compact the dough onto the bottom of the pan but not up along the sides.
Then, spread the marshmallow fluff over the top as evenly as you can. If it keeps sticking to your spatula, spray the spatula with cooking oil to prevent this. Next, take the small amounts of the remaining cookie dough and flatten it into a few discs using your hands. Place the dough on top of the marshmallow fluff.
Bake: Proceed to put the dish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the cookie is golden brown.
Let the dessert cool for about 1 hour, letting the marshmallow and chocolate cool and set completely. Then, lift the bars out of the pan using the parchment paper overhang. Cut into serving sized squares and serve. Enjoy!
