S'more Brownies

These look so fun! I haven't eaten one yet. Tonight for Young Womens we are planning a "High Adventure" camp out with the girls. We wanted to have some sort of "camp" inspired treat while we plan.... what is better at camp than smores? Not much. So, here it is. (if I taste it and it is not all it promises to be, then you won't see this post for long! I will remove it) I found this recipe on the Food Network Website. http://www.foodnetwork.com/
**(update...OH YUM! I had one last night and it was amazing)**


6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs

2 tbsp sugar

pinch of salt


8 tbsp unsalted butter (1 stick)

4 ounces unsweeteened chocolate, chopped

1 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp fine salt

4 large cold eggs

1 cup all purpose flour


4 cups large marshmallows


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line as 8 x 8 square pan with foil or parchment paper, overhanging the edges about 1 inch.

For the crust: Lightly butter the foil. Stir the butter together with the crumbs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the brownie. Put the butter and chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt in microwave on 75% power for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave again until completely melted, about 2 more minutes. Stir in the sugars, vanilla and salt into the melted chocolatge.

Add the eggs and beat vigorously to make a thick and glossy batter.

Add the flour and stir until just incorporated.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top is crispy and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few crumbs, about 40 to 45 min.

Remove from the oven, carefully position the rack about 6 inches from the broiler and preheat on low. Layer the marshmallows across the top and toast under the broiler until golden. (I cut the large marshmallows in half and put them on top...it was so tall already!)

Watch it closely!

Cool on rack, gently remove the brownies from the pan using the flaps of foil/parchment paper. Carefully separate any marshmallow from the foil and fold away. Cut into 12 squares.

**Tip: 1) I cooked these longer than it called for by about 15 min. It was still not done in the center. The toothpick was still wet..ish and I thought maybe it would firm up when cooled. nope. So make sure your toothpick is pretty much clean.

2) Cutting them was an experience. The marshmallows are beyond sticky. I finally sprayed my knife with cooking spray and the helped some. Make sure they are pretty cool and I think that will also help. ENJOY
