Fudgy S'Mores Bars

These bars are really nummy and gooey and very rich! The recipe calls for M & Ms but I didn't have any so I just used dark chocolate chips.

Fudgy S'Mores Bars

1 cup graham cracker crumbs (12 squares)
1/2 cup ap flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter (soft)

4 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup M & Ms or chocolate chips
1/4 cup hot fudge topping

Heat oven to 350. Grease 13X9 inch pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl beat crust ingredients with an electric mixer on low until coarse crumbs form. Press mixture evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over crust and bake for 3 to 4 minutes longer or until marshmallows begin to puff.

Sprinkle chocolate pieces evenly on top of marshmallows and drizzle with hot fudge topping. Cool completely for about an hour. Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.

Flower/Butterfly Cake

Birthday cake made for a lady that loves gardening and flowers. The butterfly is made out of gumpaste and then hand painted. I don't think it really "goes" because the flowers are a little cartoony and the butterfly is more life like, but the birthday girl liked it and that's all that matters right?
