Sugar, Sugar: Peanut Butter Cup S'mores Bars

Our daddy doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, but he is a sucker for a dessert with peanut butter in it.  When we spotted these peanut butter s'mores bars, we knew they'd be a big hit for Father's Day.  Kane and I both helped make these -- Kane crushed up the graham crackers for the crust, I mixed the crust together, and we both helped place the peanut butter cups (without eating any!).  Mom ended up spooning on the marshmallow fluff -- she quickly realized that we'd all be covered in it if we helped with that part.  The whole baking process went incredibly smoothly -- I did dump the entire bottle of vanilla in at one point, but fortunately there was only about a teaspoon in it (which was how much we needed to add).  Plus the sheer sugaryness of the finished treat blocked any overvanillaneyness anyways -- these were outrageously sweet and delish.  If you don't like sweets, these are not for you.  But, we'd bake these up any day!

p.s. they are even better cold out of the fridge....
