S'mores brownies

So I'm a bit off today. One of my boys was very sick and up a lot during the night. He had a minor surgery yesterday, which went great, but his stomach did not agree with the anesthesia. There is nothing tougher on a mama than having a sick/sad/hurting kid! He is resting now. I should be resting, too, but I have posts to write and treats to make!

Sorry, not much fluff today. Aside from the marshmallows, that is. 

Here is Day #8 of Twelve Days of Christmas Treats!

(Recipe adapted from The Emeals Blog)

Prepare a 19.5-oz. box of brownie mix (family size) in a 9x13 baking dish, according to package directions. 

While the brownies are baking, set the following aside:

8 cinnamon graham crackers, broken into pieces

2 cups miniature marshmallows

Three 1.55-oz. Hershey's bars, broken into pieces

Remove the brownies from the oven and set oven to Broil.

Top the brownies with the graham cracker pieces and the marshmallows. No structure is needed here. Unless you want there to be. 

Once the broiler is ready, return the pan to the oven and broil for no more than 2 minutes, or once the marshmallows just start to brown.

Remove the brownies from the oven and immediately place the chocolate pieces over the top. Allow the chocolate to melt slightly. If they aren't melting enough for your liking, place the pan back in the oven for a minute.

Cut into squares and serve. Store, covered, at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

You can't go wrong with these. They are virtually impossible to mess up! Good luck! Farewell! Till next time (tomorrow)!

This looks divine! I might try making it with mini peanut butter cups instead of the Hershey's bars.

Oh my goodness, I'm going to have to try these! Can you use regular graham crackers as well or does it not work as well as the cinnamon graham crackers?

Hi Tia! Regular graham crackers will taste just as delicious in this recipe!

Should the brownies be completely done before topping them with the graham crackers and marshmallows?

01.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterRayRay

Hi Rayray! Yes, the brownies should be fully baked before adding the graham crackers, chocolate pieces and marshmallows. At that point, the entire pan is broiled for just a few minutes to melt the chocolate and marshmallows. Hope this helps!

Hi! This is a fantastic recipe that I'm planning to use for a Super Bowl party. I don't have a ton of experience with baking, so my question is: would you have to adjust the baking time if you mix the s'more ingredients in the brownie batter?

01.30.2013 | Unregistered CommenterAmnda

Hi Amanda! I'm not sure I would recommend adding all of the ingredients to the pan before baking, but you can certainly try. The marshmallows are meant to be lightly toasted and the chocolate just melted. If you decide to give it a try, let me know how it works out! I would cook the brownies for the entire recommended time so they are cooked through.

Just a warning to keep an eye on the brownies while they are under the broiler. It is a fire hazard!!!
