Nifty Fifty

Day 50.

Day Fifty!! Halfway to Day 100! Remember, on Day 100, I'll be hosting my first giveaway, so stay tuned. I've been pondering what the giveaway should be. I know it's going to be something I consider important in the kitchen, and it will include food for sure...

On to today's delight.

Some ooey-gooey loveliness reminiscent of a campground favorite.

S'Mores Brownies


For the crust:

  • 15 graham cracker sheets

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

For the dark chocolate brownie filling:

  • 2 cups of melted butter (yes, 2 full cups)

  • 1 cup of cocoa powder (dutch process/dark cocoa is best)

  • 2 1/2 cups of granulated sugar

  • 6 large eggs

  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract (make your own!)

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the topping:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

How it's Done:

  1. Line a 9x11" baking dish with aluminum foil. Spray well with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. While the butter is melting, turn your graham crackers into crumbs. Blend in the 1/4 cup sugar and then the 1/4 cup melted butter. Press into the bottom of the foil-lined pan. Set aside.

  3. To the melted 2 cups of butter, add the cocoa powder and the 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well between additions. Stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Fold in the flour. Stir only as long as necessary to combine. Pour brownie batter over graham crust.

  4. Bake 35 minutes or until almost set in the middle. Remove from oven.

  5. Immediately top with chocolate chips then marshmallows. Set the pan under the broiler and broil a couple minutes until marshmallows are toasted lightly brown.

  6. Using the foil "handles," remove the brownies from the pan. Cut into squares and serve warm.
