S'mores Brownies

S'mores Brownies
 Before I went home to visit, my brother, Josh, posted on my facebook a picture of something that was (more or less) s'mores brownies-with the caption "Make these for me!" Well, as luck would have it...I'd been yearning to make How Sweet's recipe for S'mores Brownies for quite some time. Michael's not a ginormous s'mores fan, though, so I had been putting it off for his sake. A visit home was the perfect opportunity to whip up some choco-marshmallowy goodness. It also seemed like the ideal time to get together with one of my best friends, Angela.  So, the day after I arrived in Ohio, Josh woke up early with me, Angela came over, and we ( set to making a double batch of these brownies. We joked, and visited, and Angela stirred the brownie batter! We also looked at all the butter in the graham crust and realized real s'mores are most definitely healthier...and we all silently agreed to not care.

We got impatient, however. They smelled so good as they baked. The recipe said to let them cool 2-3 hours! But...they looked so beautiful. And marshmallows are best when they're grabbed a spoon...

 and became a rebel. 
I followed. 
Then Angela gave in to our bad influence.
 We all burnt our mouths. 
But it was totally worth it.

Yes ladies, he's single :)

 Mmmmm....(and yes, I will wear my apron whenever possible. Especially since I got 2 more for Christmas. SO MANY APRONS!)

We shared these with friends and loved ones, and both pans were demolished before I returned to New York. Josh and I were majorly addicted. It was a fun baking day with my brudder and Angela, and I'm so happy that we got to have such a great day, with such delicious results. :)

S'mores Brownies

S'mores Brownies
  • 1 box brownie mix (or your favorite homemade recipe-I like using this recipe for cocoa brownies)
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I recommend using a food processor to make these)
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • approx.16 marshmallows (regular size)--or however many it takes to cover the top
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (unless your box brownie mix calls for a different temperature, then use that)
  • In a 9x9 pan (or...if you're me and have to work with what your mother has, you use an 11 x 7), melt butter. Add graham cracker crumbs and mix until fully moistened and form into crust.
  • Mix up brownie batter according to instructions. Pour over graham cracker crust.
  • Bake for recommended amount of time. Test with a toothpick--brownies may need an additional 15-20 minutes (because of graham cracker crust).
  • When the brownies are fully baked, place marshmallows on top. Set under broiler for a couple minutes, or in preheated oven for another 10 minutes. KEEP A CLOSE EYE-make sure the marshmallows don't burn!
  • Let cool complete (2-3 hours)....(or break the rules like me. I won't tell.)
