I’m not sure why but I had the biggest craving for melted marshmallows and other S’mores-like treats this weekend. This recipe is seriously sweet, gooey, with all the yummy things in a S’more. There’s the chocolate from the brownie, crushed graham crackers mixed into the batter, and melted toasted marshmallows on top.
I really love how the toasted marshmallow looks on each piece of brownie. And when you bite into the marshmallow, it gives this little swish sound. These didn’t last long. FH started in on the plate the second I put down my camera. I had to secretly stash away two for my friend before these were all gone.
I didn’t have a lot of time, so I didn’t make the brownies from scratch. I kind of wish I did because the box mix brownies are so sweet on their own already whereas scratch brownies tend to be more pure chocolate and less sugar taste. But these were still really good with the brownie mix. And easy.
I baked my brownies in my Baker’s Edge Brownie Pan. If you love the chewy corner pieces of brownies, I highly recommend you invest in this pan or request it as a gift. My siblings are so spoiled, they won’t even eat brownies baked in a regular pan anymore. In addition to each piece having edges, I like how each piece of brownie bakes evenly and is sturdy when I cut it, whereas in a regular pan sometimes the middle pieces fall apart.
1 box of brownie mix (or your favorite brownie recipe)
1 cup of graham crackers, crushed with hands
12 large marshmallows
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan or brownie edge pan. Make brownies according to recipe or box instructions.
2. Crush graham crackers with hands so that they still have relatively large chunks. Mix into the batter and stir.
3. Pour batter into greased brownie pan. Place marshmallows on top, spacing evenly so that when you cut brownies into squares, each one will have a melted marshmallow in the center. Bake for 30 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean. Let completely cool before cutting and serving.
