S’mores Brownie Bars

I can’t wait for summer.  Sitting around a fireplace, toasting marshmallows only to place it on a chocolate bar thats sandwiched between two pieces of graham crackers.  Biting into the sandwich to the crunch of the graham cracker, gooeyness of the marshmallow and then the melted chocolate.  Oh my I love s’mores.  But actually, in all my summers at camp, I only made them with marshmallows and graham crackers, I was not a chocolate fan.  Oh boy, was I missing out!!! Chocolate is a key component in a s’more, and in these bars, the gooey brownie is the perfect substitute.

There’s a crunchy graham cracker crust, which personally, I can eat plain. I love graham crackers.  Then a layer of fudge brownie, which is topped with puffy marshmallows toasted to perfect.  But you have to keep your eye on those, because they can burn before you know it.

I made these for my sister, it was her birthday two days ago! Happy Birthday B!! Anyways, a few days before, she texted me simply asking what I am making for her Birthday Bash.  After she realized that her friend could not transport a cake on the bus to work, we settled on these bars.  Chocolatey (a main requirement) and portable, they also last a few days without losing flavor.  Not that my sister would notice, when I visited during my December break, she still had Icebox S’mores Bars in her fridge from Thanksgiving.  Um ew?  I threw those out immediately!

Thanks Lindsay for bringing these in to her!!! According to B, they loved the bars! :)

But back to the bars, you mix melted butter, graham cracker and a few tablespoons of sugar and then press it into a 9 x 9 (or 8 x 8) pan.  While that is baking it for a couple of minutes, the brownie layer is made with butter and chocolate melted in a double boiler.  Then sugar, eggs and flour is added.

Then, the brownie layer is baked without marshmallows. Once the brownies are done and cooled, top them with marshmallow halves (sticky side down) and then place under the broiler until toasty.  I made the mistake of cutting the marshmallows and then leaving them out while the brownies cooled, so the sticky side was well no longer sticky and once they came out of the broiler and I went to cut them, the marshmallows fell off.  So, I recut some and redid the topping.  But don’t worry, the extra marshmallows were devoured by my family and I.  They tasted amazing! How often do you get a perfectly toasted marshmallow in a regular campfire.

They were a bit difficult to cut, but worth the effort, they tasted amazing! Plus, you get to eat all the “scraps” :)

Chelsey these look fantastic!!
I generally don’t like marshmallows, but there’s just something about s’mores. Maybe because they remind me of camping which always makes me feel comforted.

I’ve made these before and accidently left the marshmallows in the oven too long and caught the whole batch on fire :(. Not a good day.
