S'mores Brownies

Pin It

Oh S'mores Brownie, I must send you away from me.  Our love...it just wasn't meant to be, it cannot be.  You were meant for someone else.  Someone who loves camping and the outdoors, and well...s'mores.  I had no idea I would love you so. 

What?!  :)  Perhaps I go too far?

I really didn't think I would like these brownies as much as I did.  I'm not a huge fan of s'mores.  I just had a powerful urge to sprinkle chopped Hershey bars on something.  I love how you can still see little bits of the word "Hershey" in the chocolate chunks.  That makes me smile.   

These really turned out very yummy.  So many lovely layers--cookie bottom, brownie middle, a graham cracker layer, and a marshmallow top.  My favorite part--the jagged little pieces of chopped milk chocolate bar (AKA Hershey bar) on the very top.  It makes a nice presentation.


 Make them today.  Perhaps you are like me...not particularly moved by regular ol' s'mores.  Trust me, these brownies will change your mind!



S'mores Brownies
Source:  slightly adapted from Marcy Goldman in The New Best of Better Baking

Bottom Layer:
1 cup finely crushed Oreo cookies
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Brownie Layer:
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
pinch of salt

Graham Cracker Layer:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Topping:
2 cups miniature marshmallows
4 (1.55 oz.) Hershey bars, coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 350.  Grease an 8" square or 7 x 11" pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang with which to lift the brownies.  

For the bottom layer, combine the cookie crumbs and melted butter.  Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.  Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

For the brownie layer, melt the butter in a small saucepan.  Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate; stir until chocolate is melted.  Stir in the sugar.  Whisk in the eggs, vanilla, flour and salt.  Spread the mixture over the bottom layer in the pan.  

For the graham cracker layer, toss the cracker crumbs with the melted butter.  Sprinkle over the brownie batter.  Bake for 22-25 minutes or until just set.  Remove the pan from the oven and preheat the broiler.

For the topping, sprinkle the marshmallows on top of the baked brownies.  Place under the broiler for 20-60 seconds, or until the marshmallows start to brown.  Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with chopped chocolate bars.  Let cool on a wire rack to room temp and then refrigerate for 20-30 minutes before cutting.
