S’mores Brownies for a Sticky Chocolate Treat

Okay, here comes the chocolate fix.

I haven’t done a chocolate recipe in a while – well, a month is a while for me! Honestly, chocolate is and always has been one of my favorite flavors. Even as a kid, chocolate ice cream, chocolate bars and chocolate cookies were my jam.

Last week, I was doing a bit of styling for Colavita and the featured recipe was Mole Chicken Meatballs. This recipe was awesome. The chicken meatballs were simmered in a sauce made up of tomatoes, chicken stock and mole paste. SO dark, SO rich – just divine. And as they were chatting along making the meatballs, the owner of Guelaguetza (the mole maker) mentioned Mole Brownies. I’m sorry, what?

Now that’s just churning in my mind and I can’t get rid of it! So don’t be surprised if you see mole coming up sometime soon!

The Mole Brownie combination reminds me of a dish I put together while at White Birch Restaurant. If I remember correctly, I think it was on my summer menu. The design of the dish was Chocolate, Cherry and Chile. So, I made a Milk Chocolate Semifreddo, speckled with Black Urfa Chili and served with Bing Cherry Compote. If you’ve never had the chili’s before you have to try! They remind me of mole in the same deep subtle heat with notes of chocolate. So good!

S’mores Brownies

This week, I’m going a bit more mainstream. I’m teaching a kid’s class featuring the classic brownie with a twist – Chocolate Brownies sandwiched between Graham Cracker Crust and Toasted Marshmallows. It’s ooey, gooey and perfect for kids who like to make messes. (Yes, you qualify as a kid too.) Even during my photoshoot with these bad boys, I was covered in sticky strings of marshmallow-y goodness. Lots of licking fingers and pulling strings off chins!

As yummy as these are, I definitely don’t need a whole tray of S’mores Brownies lying around the house. Luckily, I was able to send these to work with my husband at Glenbrook Brewery to keep the staff nice and sugared up. (Hope you brought some napkins!) They’re burning enough calories over there running service!

Give these bad boys a go and let me know what you think in the comments below! Want to see something with mole and chocolate? Let me know! I love hearing from you guys.

Cheers!

S’mores Brownies


  • Author: Melissa-Smith
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 min
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x

Description

Sticky and decadent, these brownies are the perfect bite of summer fun. Ultra simple and great for kids.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 10 graham crackers crushed finely
  • 4 tablespoon melted butter

For the Brownie Batter:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 10 ounce semi sweet chocolate
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cup mini marshmallows to top the brownies.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray and line an 8″X8″ baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Mix graham crackers and butter in a bowl, then press in at the bottom of the baking dish using a measuring cup or your hands. Place the baking dish in the freezer for 10 minutes to let it set while you make the batter.
  3. Melt the butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Alternatively, melt over a bain marie set up on the stove top. Stir every 15 seconds to avoid burning.
  4. Whisk the sugar into the chocolate mixture, mix until well combined. Whisk in the eggs with the vanilla extract. Make sure to whisk extremely well to get a completely smooth batter with no lumps.
  5. Stir in flour and cinnamon, mix slowly until fully combined.
  6. Pour the brownie batter on top of the crust and bake in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes until toothpick inserted in the brownie comes out with a few crumbs.
  7. Take the brownies out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Turn the broiler on. Top the brownies with marshmallows and place the dish in the oven until the marshmallows are perfectly toasted (about 2 to 4 minutes). Rotate the pan as they toast for even browning.
  8. Let it cool a bit and then cut into desired pieces.

Notes

When lining the pan, make sure to leave some parchment sticking out along the sides to grab to pull the brownies out when cool. Otherwise it will be quite a mess trying to release them from the pan!
