Smores Brownies


The one thing I miss with living in an apartment is that I can't grill foods. The apartment complex does have grills outside of some of the buildings, but finding somewhere to store charcoal and walking down a flight of steps and around the entire building if you forget something hasn't been appealing enough for us to use it.

It's been a long time since I've had a marshmallow over the grill. When I found this recipe and looked at the picture, the marshmallow looked just like one that had been hanging out over the fire for a bit. I knew I needed to make it. The recipe calls for unsweetened chocolate and Earth Balance buttery spread and I didn't have either so I just substituted with what I had.

    • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
    • 1 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 5 eggs
    • 1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 cup graham cracker, roughly crushed
    • 15-18 large marshmallows

1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 350.
2. Using a double boiler, add about 2 inches of water to the bottom pan and bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer. In the top pan, add the chocolate and butter and stir until combined and smooth.
3. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking power and salt. Mix until combined.
4. Beat the eggs, sugars, and vanilla in a large bowl. (I used the Kitchenaid Mixer for this) Next, add the melted chocolate, then the flour mixture and finally the graham cracker crumbs.
5. Pour into the 9x13 dish. Press the marshmallows into the mixture trying to keep them evenly spaced from each other.
6. Bake for 40 minutes. The marshmallows will still be puffy when you remove it from the oven. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.

I was a bit worried about how these would turn out because the batter was really thick and obviously lumpy from the graham crackers, but these are delicious! They are a bit thicker than a regular brownie and the graham crackers add more density to them. And of course, gooey toasted marshmallow makes everyone happy!
