Oh Fall is coming. It’s time to start baking again! Hmm…what shall I bake? I’m not really a baker so I look for recipes that are simple and easy and doesn’t require a lot of baking tools. I mean, I don’t even own a mixer. That’s how I stumbled across this s’mores brownies recipe by Bridget from Bake at 350 (link below).
This dessert has a base of a buttery graham cracker crust, layered with a fudgey brownie center, smoothered with a chocolate topping and topped off with roasted marshmallow that gives us the cozy feeling we get from a campfire.
I can’t wait to make this for my family on a rainy day with the fireplace going!
Thanks Bridget for this great recipe!
(makes one 9×13″ pan)
for the crust:
1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
for the brownies:
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 9×13″ pan. Line with foil. Grease the foil.
- Stir the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar, and salt together. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter for the brownies over medium-low heat. Once melted, stir in the sugars. Heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is hot, but not boiling.
- Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Add the vanilla and whisk to combine. One at a time, whisk in the eggs. Stir in the flour.
- Pour the batter over the crust and bake for 28-30 minutes, or until done. Place on a wire rack to cool for about 30-40 minutes.
- Place an oven rack on the second highest level. Preheat the broiler on high.
- Place the chocolate bars on top of the brownies. Then, use an offset spatula to spread marshmallow creme evenly [or if using premade marshmallows, place marshmallows on top forming a single layer so they can get browned evenly]*.
- Set the oven timer for 3 minutes (just an insurance in case you get distracted) [you can leave it in longer if you want it toastier, but don’t burn the marshmallow, keep an eye on it!]*. Put the pan on the oven rack and close the door. Shift the pan every 30 seconds or so, making sure that all of the marshmallow gets browned.
- Remove from the oven and onto the wire rack to cool completely.
- Once cooled, cut into squares to serve. If desired, brownies may be heated in the microwave for 8-10 seconds each.
