And I’ve posted some variations on here, but I haven’t ever done a simple s’mores brownie, and that’s an oversight that I intend to remedy here and now.
Nothing can really replace a freshly melted marshmallow over a Hershey bar between two slices of graham cracker, but trust me – this’ll do very, very well.
Graham Cracker Crust
· 2 cups crushed graham crackers
· 6 T butter, melted
· 2 T sugar
· 1 t vanilla
· Pinch of salt
Brownie and Topping
· 12 T butter, softened to room temperature
· 1 ¾ cups sugar
· 2 t vanilla
· ½ t sea salt
· 3 eggs, brought to room temperature
· 1 cup sweetened cocoa powder
· 1/3 cup flour
· 2 cups mini marshmallows (or more if you like your marshmallows…)
DirectionsAssuming you start with full graham crackers, pulverize them until they’re crumbs. You can do this in a food processor, or by putting them in a plastic bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin.
Mix the graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in a bowl, and press the mixture into the bottom of an 8 or 9” square pan that you’ve lined with aluminum foil. Bake the crust at 350 for about 8 minutes, or until it starts to get golden brown. Once it gets there, take it out and set it aside (you’re not going to have to wait until its completely cooled).
Now onto the brownie portion of our treat. With a hand mixer, mix together the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until everything is well blended. Next, add in the eggs one at a time, mixing after putting in each one. Finally, add the cocoa powder and flour and mix that all together. That’s it for the brownie portion – super easy!
Pour the brownie mixture over the crust (again, it doesn’t have to be cooled) and bake at 350 for about 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in comes out dry.
Take out of the oven and cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, so it’s not so piping hot. Sprinkle the marshmallows evenly over the brownie and put it back in the oven, on the top rack, this time with the oven on broil.
WATCH this carefully – we all know what happens to marshmallows when they get too close to fire. The goal is to toast them golden brown, not ignite them. This should take maybe a minute.
Take it out of the oven and cool on a wire rack. Slice up and enjoy!!
