Smore's Brownies

i'll be honest- these were only ok. i was expecting to be wowed because, hello? smore's brownies? duh. but alas- i think smore's are best left for summer.

but i'm still going to post this because minus the marshmallows- these were tasty. so maybe next time i'll just nix the marshmallows.

Smore's Brownies (via Food Network)*
You Need:




  • 4 cups large marshmallows ( i used those jumbo marshmallows & cut them in 3rds)

Directions: Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8 by-8-inch square baking pan with foil so it hangs over the edges by about 1 inch.

For the crust: Lightly butter the foil with some of the melted butter. Stir the rest of the butter together with the crumbs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the brownie. Put the butter and chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on 75 percent power for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave again until completely melted, about 2 minutes more. Alternatively, put the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Bring a saucepan filled with 1 inch or so of water to a very slow simmer; set the bowl on the pan without touching the water. Stir occasionally until melted. Stir the light brown and white sugars, vanilla and salt into the melted chocolate. Add the eggs and beat vigorously to make a thick and glossy batter. Add the flour and stir until just incorporated.

Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top is crispy and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few crumbs, about 40 to 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven and carefully position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and preheat on low. Layer marshmallows across the top and toast under the broiler until golden, (keep an eye on it, it can go quick), about 2 minutes. Cool on a rack, gently removing the brownies from the pan using the aluminum flaps. Carefully separate any marshmallow from the foil and fold away. Cut into 12 (2-inch) squares.

* my changes
i used jumbo marshmallows & cut them in 3rds.
i cut the brownies when they were still pretty warm- i made sure to rinse the blade with warm
water between each cut

like i said- if i made these again i'd probably nix the marshmallows- or use fluff instead...yeah. fluff.
Pin It!

I made a similar recipe one year for christmas, I'm sure I told you ab out it. The recipe did not specify how far away from the broiling element the brownies should be and just said to "broil" so that is what I set my oven to. Ah, the sound of burning marshmallows when you are not around a campfire - not good!!
