S'mores Brownies

Graham Crackers

I adore s'mores. Not marshmallows, or graham crackers but s'mores. The combination of gooey, warm marshmallows with a crispy golden outer shell, melted chocolate and buttery graham crackers is pure bliss. Sitting by a campfire (or over your stove top like I used to in university) watching your marshmallow toast to the perfect color, the anticipation of the sweetness you're about to enjoy - well it's all too much for the dessert-lover in me. This past weekend, I needed some s'mores in my life. And since I don't plan on sitting around any campfires soon, I had to get crafty.

Yummy

Ontario adapted a new holiday a few years ago called Family Day. It's supposed to encourage families to get together and spend quality time doing extracurricular activities. My family, aunts, uncles, Grandpa and cousins got together for dinner to make use of our free day off. To celebrate the Olympics we all wore Canada colors. To satisfy my sweet tooth and everyone elses, I baked up some s'mores brownies. What could be more perfect?

<span class=

I used about a cup and a quarter of chocolate chips (they melt faster than Hershey chocolate squares). I used close to two cups of mini marshmallows, or enough to cover the top of the brownies. I used almost a whole sleeve of graham crackers crumbled into pieces. For the brownies I used just a basic boxed version. After the brownies finished baking and cooling, I dumped all the combined toppings over top. You can then add more of each topping to your liking. I added some more marshies to fill in the 'holes.' Keep in mind the marshmallows will poof up and out slightly. If you use big sized marshmallows you may want to cut them in half. The chocolate chips will melt a tad too. And your heart? Your heart will thank you for making these.

And then you will bake the toppings at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the marshmallows start to turn golden and slightly crispy to the touch. Or until when you cut into the brownies, they turn out like this....

Delicious

Perfection.

So Tasty

Honestly, go make these now. They were extremely tasty. And I was even thinking that a graham cracker crust would have been a perfect compliment to the gooey brownies so if you're feeling adventurous give that a try. Oh and thrown in some chocolate chips into your brownie batter. It'll make this dessert that much better. And then if you want to get really crafty you can break out the scrap book paper, ribbon, scissors and tape. Add in a few stickers and brown paper bags and you can create the cutest little bags to put your delicious treats into.

my mom bought me those mitts, mailed them here plus a scarf for hubby. really like them :)

when i moved to Alberta years ago (thinks really hard, um 15 years ago, I'm old :p), they had family day, which in principle is a good idea but in reality was just another day for the locals to get drunk as they often had free babysitting with the kids being off :/ I know it wasn't like that everywhere, but where I was, it was a common thing.

I'm going to have to make these brownies now, been wanting to bake something for the last few weeks. Just need to find marshmallows that aren't pink!

Geeze, I LOVE s'mores. This is a terrific recipe for a no-campfire-required treat. Thank you for sharing your recipe for this well-loved, childhood favorite.

I am thinking that this should be made the official meal of "family day." Excellent!

Miss Dot said...

S'more brownies?? Love it! You might even get me to have another go at making brownies even though I hate hate HATE making them :-P

I thought the opening ceremonies were the most amazing I'd ever seen! I was truly amazed :)

YUM! but i can't bake for another decade. i mysteriously gained 5 pounds in new zealand. you would think all that exercise would have made up for all the eating, but apparently not. :(

Hilary said...

Has anyoned mentioned how much you look like Tessa Virtue? I've thought you looked like her since I started reading your blog, but given her Olympic gold, now seems a good time to mention it! :)
