First and foremost though, I can't take the credit for finding these brownies. I had been emailing with Whitney about the s'mores cookies that she made when she told me that she found a cookbook (Katie Lee's Endless Summer Cookbook) that had s'mores brownies that she was going to try. I immediately asked her for the recipe and the rest is history. So, first and foremost, THANK YOU to Whitney for introducing me to these brownies!
- 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 box brownie mix
- 3 cups regular marshmallows
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8-inch square baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Stir in the melted butter. Transfer the crumb mixture to the prepared baking dish and use a measuring cup to press the crumbs evenly over the bottom of the pan (I used a spatula and it worked fine). Bake until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the brownie mix according to the package instructions. Pour the batter over the prepared crust. Bake until a toothpick comes out mostly clean, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and position the oven rack under the broiler.
Preheat the broiler.
Top the brownie with the marshmallows and put under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes with the oven door open a few inches, until the marshmallows are toasted (this happened QUICKLY for me. be careful!). Watch closely to prevent burning. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve.
little hands wanted to taste!
serve warm and with vanilla ice cream - amazing!
I was a little worried about bringing them to my friend's house for their Labor Day BBQ only because I had never tried to make them before and I didn't know how they would turn out. I kind of assumed they would be good (can you go wrong with marshmallows and brownies and graham crackers really?) but I wasn't quite sure on the cooking time and if they'd be too dry, so I brought vanilla ice cream just in case :) Turns out, everyone LOVED them and even had seconds. Even their son, Logan, raved about how good they were and how he liked them so much. Toddlers are notorious for telling the truth right (even when you don't want them to! ha!) so that's a major win in my book!
So please, make these, enjoy, and come back and tell me if you loved them as much as I did!
Oh and if anyone wants a version to save on to your computer/phone, send me a message on Instagram (@lizbir) or let me know in the comments and I can email you over a picture of it!
