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!

S'mores Brownies

Yield: 36

Ingredients:

10 graham crackers, broken in half (20 squares), divided
3/4 cup butter
4 oz unsweetened Chocolate
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
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 just made your vegan chocolate cupcakes over the weekend for some vegan friends and they were a huge hit. I had bookmarked this cupcake recipe for mother’s day because I LOVE peanut butter cups.

    Anyway I wanted to let you know the woman from Confetti Cakes was on Rachel Ray and they posted the official recipe on the Rachel Ray website. Not sure if you want to link it?
