S'mores Brownies

S'mores, S'mores, S'mores!  This is the last s'mores recipe I will be posting for a while.  I don't like wasting ingredients and I had extra marshmallows and graham crackers that would have gone stale.  I pieced this recipe together from two baking blogs.  I liked the idea of putting a layer of graham cracker, chocolate, and marshmallow in the middle of brownies, but I wanted to make brownies form scratch.  This brownie recipe is amazing, with or without the s'mores ingredients in the middle!  Now just to clarify, the marshmallows in the middle melt away, but the gooey texture and flavor is still there.  If you want the marshmallows to still be there then I would find another recipe where they go on top at the end of baking.  Adding marshmallows to any brownie recipe makes them super gooey and delicious!!  This is another fun summer treat and I know everyone will love it! 





S'mores Brownies - Idea adapted from Picky Palate and brownie recipe adapted from My Baking Addiction
Yield: 25 small squares or 16 bigger squares
Ingredients:
2/3 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon - optional
1/4 Cup Semisweet or Bittersweet Chocolate - I used chocolate chips
10 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
3 Eggs
9 Fudge Covered Graham Cracker Squares or you can use regular graham crackers (enough to make a solid layer)
1-2 Cups Frozen Mini Marshmallows - or enough to make a solid layer - I didn't measure...
1-2 Cups chocolate chips - optional - I would recommend if you don't use chocolate covered graham crackers...
PAM for the pan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325. Prepare an 8x8 baking pan by putting down a layer of foil or parchment paper, then spraying it with PAM.  Make sure there is enough extra on the sides to pull up the brownies when they come out of the oven.
  2. Whisk the flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl, set aside. 
  3. Melt the chocolates, cinnamon, and butter in a medium bowl or pot over a pan of simmering water.  Once everything is melted and smooth, remove from heat and whisk in the sugar and vanilla.  Whisk in one egg at a time, making sure that the egg is fully incorporated before add the next.  Continue to whisk until smooth.  
  4. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until incorporated.
  5. Pour about 1/3 of the batter into the prepared pan, or enough to cover the bottom.  Then lay down a layer of fudge covered graham crackers, or plain graham crackers.  Then make a layer of chocolate chips, and a layer marshmallows.   Pour on the rest of the brownie batter, making sure to pour it around evenly.  
  6. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out somewhat clean.  The marshmallows will bubble up and make it hard to tell if its done, but don't over bake it!!  
  7. Cool the brownies in the pan for about 10 minutes.  Use the handles of the extra foil or parchment paper to pull up the brownies and take them out of the pan.  I would recommend letting them cool for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares, they will be super gooey and messy if you don't let them cool long enough.  
  8. Enjoy with a glass of milk!!

  5. No graham crackers in Australia and I love them! I've got a box of crumbs I ordered from the states and maybe the spares after the key lime pie will have to go in brownies like these. Yum!
