S’mores Brownies

Imagine what a s’mores would taste like if you used a fudgey brownie instead of a small piece of chocolate. That’s what these little guys taste like. You get a nice crunch from the graham cracker on the bottom, then a fudge like brownie layer, topped with more chocolate, chunks of graham crackers, and mini marshmallows.

As I mentioned the other day, I like my marshmallows to be charred when I make s’mores. So when I made these brownies, I had to toast the marshmallows. I busted out my kitchen torch and charred the toppings. It was a lot of fun to come up with another excuse to use my kitchen torch. It’s just so fun!

I read some reviews that the brownie layer was a bit dry, so I was extra careful not to let that happen. In the end I think my brownies were a bit underbaked, but that gave them a gooey fudge like consistency that was perfect for these brownies.

Everyone at work LOVED these guys. And they were so easy to throw together. If you’re in the mood for smores, give these a shot!

Yield: 36

Ingredients:

10 graham crackers, broken in half (20 squares), divided

1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
2-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F.

Line 13x9-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. Place 15 grahams in pan, with sides overlapping slightly. Break remaining grahams into pieces.

Microwave butter and chocolate squares in large microwaveable bowl on high 2 min.; stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour. Pour over grahams in pan.

Bake 30 to 32 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Do not overbake.

Sprinkle with marshmallows and chocolate chunks. Bake 3 to 5 min. or until marshmallows begin to puff. Press reserved graham pieces gently into marshmallows.

(Optional) Using your kitchen torch, toast the marshmallows.

Cool. Use foil to lift brownies from pan before cutting to serve.

    I too didn’t have a pan big enough for a water bath. I just cooked it for 1 hour and 30 minutes and then let it cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. I didn’t even cool it in the oven. I haven’t tasted it yet, so I don’t know if it turned out ok…but it looks just like my other that I made.
    Hey if it tastes good who cares what it looks like?!

    Regardless of how it looks, it’s the taste that matters! My cheesecakes look similar when I don’t do a water bath. Another idea with cheesecake is to make cheesecake truffles with leftovers (that is, if you even have any!) 🙂

    If you get an answer to your cake running over problem would you mind sharing it? I had the same problem, despite the fact my pan met Dorie’s requirements. I’m also curious where I went wrong.

    I’ve had similar problems, especially with the cracking, which I believe is from cooking too long. Once I started taking cheese cakes out based on time and not appearance the problem went away. I think a lot of cooking still takes place from the internal heat…just a theory…BTW, great marble effect on your cake!

    Aawwww poor little cheesecake. To be honest I am not sure why your cheesecake fell but I know when I make cheesecake mine always bakes more evenly when I use a water bath also if the internal temperature reaches 160F (don’t quote me) it starts to make the cheesecake crack. Maybe next time don’t bake it as long? Either way taste is the most important IMO. 🙂
