Oh brownies… how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee with chocolate chips mixed into your chocolatey batter.
I love thee with swirls of gooey caramel and chunks of walnuts.
I love thee frosted and topped with crushed peppermint candies.
I love thee layered with peanuts, chopped peanut butter cups and topped with chocolate rice krispies! (PBK Brownies)
And now… thanks to Joy the Baker, I love thee with graham crackers and marshmallows!
These remind me of summers, sitting around a campfire with the kids, making S’mores and singing silly songs. It’s winter now, but wouldn’t it be fun to make these when you have a blanket tent set up in the living room for a sleepover? There are some awesome Mom points right there!
No matter when you make them, I know you’ll love them!
Recipe from Joy The Baker
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
5 large eggs
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup graham cracker, roughly crushed
12 big marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan (or you can you non-stick cooking spray too!) Set aside.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and espresso powder in small bowl. Set this aside too!
Using a double boiler, with two inches of simmering water, stir chocolate and butter until melted and smooth. Allow to cool for a few minutes before continuing.
Once cooled slightly, whisk the sugars into the chocolate. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Stir in the vanilla, then your flour mixture. Carefully fold in the crushed graham crackers.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Dot with 12 large marshmallows and sprinkle with a few additional graham crackers. Bake about 30 – 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached.
The marshmallows will be browned and fairly puffy, but will deflate as they cool. Let the brownies cool for about 20 minutes before slicing them. You will need to clean the knife under hot running water as you cut these because the marshmallows can get sticky!
