S'mores Cookie Bars!

This is the bonus cookie! It is campout time, so s'mores bars are perfect!

I made two pans, they go fast!  The recipe is for one 13x9 pan.

S'mores Bars
1/3 cup butter, room temperature
1/3 cup shortening (crisco)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2/3 cup flour
1/4 (scant) teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons heavy cream
9 ounces Hershey's chocolate, cut into bits
1 cup or more mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13x9 pan
Combine butter, shortening, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in a mixer bowl and beat on medium till well blended
Combine graham cracker crumbs, flour and salt. Slowly add to butter mixture. Mix on low until well blended. Spread dough into prepared pan. (you can dampen your hands to make it easier to press, or use flour coated hands
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until edges are brown and set. The middle might be a little soft. Cool completely
Place cream in a heavy sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat, Add chocolate pieces. Stir until smooth and melted.
I had lots of left over chocolates I used. Just so it works out to 9 ounces

Spread evenly over cooled cookie crust

Spread mini marshmallows over the top. Put under broiled just until marshmallows are browned.  Let cool, and put in the refrigerator to set up for at least two hours before cutting into bars
