So I was catching up on last night's episode of The Bachelor, and I am loving Emily. She is just precious!!! I thought her date with Brad was perfect for her. Classy and fun-filled. When she opened her eyes and saw how beautifully lit the barn was, she seemed so touched. The slow going fire pit made me hungry for s'mores! So I started doing a little searching for recipes that didn't require large flames and coat hangers.
And that's how I cam across this fabulous blog My Baking Addiction! This recipe sounds INCREDIBLE!!!!! I'm trying so hard to eat healthier, but these sound too good to pass up!
S’mores Brownie Bars
Yields 16 servings
For the crust:
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 tablespoons unsalted butter; melted
2 tablespoons sugar
For the brownie layer:
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
For the topping:
20 large marshmallows; cut in half
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch-square metal baking pan with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, 6 tablespoons of melted butter in a bowl and mix until the crumbs are moistened. Press the crumbs evenly into the bottom of the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Allow crust to cool on wire rack.
3. Turn the oven temperature up to 400 degrees and prepare the brownie layer.
4. In top of a double boiler set over barely simmering water, or on low power in a microwave, melt butter and chocolate together. Stir often, and remove from heat when a few lumps remain. Stir until smooth.
5. Stir in sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir in eggs one at a time, followed by flour. Stir until very smooth, about 1 minute, until mixture pulls away from sides of bowl. Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake for 18 minutes.
6. Let cool completely, then lift out using the foil and place brownies onto a broiler safe pan. Move your oven rack about 6 inches from your broiler and preheat your broiler to low.
7. Layer marshmallows (sticky side down) across the top and toast under the broiler until golden, (watch this like you have never watched anything before…it can burn QUICK), about 2 minutes. Cool and cut into 16 (two inch) squares.
