S’More Brownies

I am so excited that summer is right around the corner! It is by far my favorite season! Long warm nights, cookouts, and camping! I really think I need to go camping soon because I can’t get my mind off of a warm and gooey s’more. Seriously, there is nothing better than s’mores on a summer evening. Roasting a marshmallow until it is perfectly browned, or in my case burned and black. Yes, I admit, I am one of those people who stick the marshmallow straight into the fire and let it burn. A marshmallow torch is what I like to call it! ;) Smashing that blackened marshmallow between graham crackers and chocolate is just one of my favorite parts of summer.

While trying to find the perfect dessert for the unofficial start of summer for this coming weekend, I stumbled upon this recipe for S’more Brownies. I used my favorite brownie recipe as the base for this addicting dessert, however, feel free to use your own favorite fudgy brownie recipe (just make sure that it’s baked in a 9×13-inch baking dish). Chewy, fudgy double chocolate brownies topped with gooey marshmallows, graham cracker pieces and chocolate chunks. So rich, so chocolately, so irresistible!

 

S’More Brownies

Chewy, fudgy double chocolate brownies topped with gooey marshmallows, graham cracker pieces and chocolate chunks.

Yield: 24 brownies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa

1 ½ teaspoonsinstant espresso

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons boiling water
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ½ cups sugar
1 ¾ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon table salt
6 graham crackers, broken into small pieces
2 cups miniature marshmallows
6 (1.5 ounce) bars Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, broken into small pieces

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9×13 inch metal baking pan. Put a long piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan, letting the parchment extend up two sides of the pan and overhang slightly on both ends. Place another piece of parchment paper in the same manner, perpendicular to the first sheet. (This will make it easy to remove the bars from the pan after they have baked.) Butter the parchment.
In a large bowl, whisk cocoa, espresso powder, and boiling water together in large bowl until smooth. Add unsweetened chocolate and whisk until chocolate is melted. Whisk in melted butter and oil. Add eggs, yolks, vanilla and continue to whisk until smooth and homogeneous. Whisk in sugar until fully incorporated. Add flour and salt and mix with rubber spatula until combined.
Transfer the batter to prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake for 25 minutes then remove from the oven and sprinkle with marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate. Bake for an additional 5 minutes. Transfer pan to wire rack and cool 1½ hours.
Using parchment overhang, lift brownies from pan. Return brownies to wire rack and let cool completely, about 1 hour. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve.

Recipe Note: If your baking dish is glass, cool the brownies 10 minutes, then remove them promptly from the pan (otherwise, the heat retention of glass can lead to overbaking).

    Yay for the black-encrusted marshmallow! It is the only way I’ll eat them: the outside layer has a little crunch and the inside is fully melted. If these were my brownies. I’d attack them with a kitchen torch to get those marshmallows toasted. Just saying…

    Wow, I think I just slipped into a sugar coma looking at the photos … I was just thinking s’mores would be great this weekend at the fire pit in the backyard, but you got it done in a brownie!

    These look absolutely freakishly amazing. I’m not too sure if I should make this though – I’d eat the entire batch in the blink of an eye!

    I’ve only had smore maybe twice in my whole life and they were obviously amazing when I did have them! I should make them more often and I’ve noticed you’re on a little smore kick so I could try out a few of these recipes too!

    S’mores brownies/bars have been on my list too long. It took me awhile to even make the s;mores cookies when they hit the blogs. One of these days I will get with it.

    They are super tasty but my chocolate melted faster than the marshmallows so it would have been more helpful to add the Grahams and marshmallows first, bake for a few, then toss the chocolate on top.
