Peanut Butter Cup S'mores

I’m a huge fan of peanut butter and decided to give these Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Bars a try. S'mores are pretty darn delicious as it is, but add some peanut butter to the mix and you have the ultimate dessert. 
Umm...seriously, is your mouth watering yet?? These are insanely decadent...super ooey, gooey, deliciousness!  
I made these for our friend Nick's annual Christmas party...needless to say they were gone by the end of the night!
Peanut Butter Cup S'mores
Recipe adapted from The Sweet Life

The original recipe called for an 8x8 pan, but I doubled it to fit a 9x13 pan.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
24 peanut butter cups, regular size
2 cups marshmallow fluff
    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line an 9×13 baking dishing with parchment paper; coat lightly with cooking spray.
    2. In a large bowl of the bowl of stand mixer, beat butter and sugars until fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.  Scrape down the sides.  With the mixer on low, stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, and graham cracker crumbs until mixed.
    3. Spread 2/3 of the dough on the bottom of the prepared baking dish.  Lightly press the peanut butter cups into the dough, then spread marshmallow fluff on top. (This part is nearly impossible to do without getting it all over you!) Press the remaining dough on top of the fluff and press down lightly.
    4. Bake for 30 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown.  Allow to cool for at least two hours to give the bars a chance to set, then remove from the pan and cut into squares with a large, sharp knife.
