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!
