I love s’mores. My friends know that if I have a bbq gathering, it is almost inevitable I will bring out the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars as the coals die down. I chase s’mores in cupcake, creme brulee or bar form. So of course the brownie form was very intriguing.
With the Marshmallows and the Graham Crackers already made, the S’mores Brownies were next in line. These were delicious, with just the right balance of marshmallows, chocolate and graham cracker. They aren’t the prettiest brownies, but highly recommended and gooey with the marshmallow.
10 oz bittersweet chocolate (70% cacao), coarsely chopped
10 oz (1 1/4 c. unsalted butter)
8 oz (1 c. plus 2 tbl) granulated sugar
8 oz (1 c. plus 2 tbl) brown sugar
5 oz (1 c.) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
4 oz milk chocolate chips (or coarsely chopped milk chocolate)
4-6 Graham Crackers, broken into large pieces
8 to 10 Marshmallows, half cut into smallish pieces
Preheat oven to 350F. Have ready a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate until smooth (over a double boiler, if you want). Add the granulated and brown sugars and still until blended. Add the eggs all at once and stir to combine. In a bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Gently whisk or fold the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture just until combined. Fold in the milk chocolate, graham crackers and half the marshmallows. Pour the batter into the pan. Dot the surface of the batter evenly with the remaining marshmallows.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until slightly souffléed but still wet in the center. The marshmallows will puff up and be a light golden brown and the chocolate surface will crack a little. Let cool in the pan on a cooling rack for about 45 minutes or until completely cooled. Cut into squares, as big or small as you like.
