S’mores Brownies
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 12 brownies
 
Ingredients
Crust:
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1½ cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch fine salt
Brownies:
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt
  • 4 large cold eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
Topping:
  • 4 oz of milk chocolate bar- broken into squares/chunks
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 325 degrees F. Line an 8 by-8-inch square baking pan with foil so it has an inch-long overhang.
For the Crust:
  1. Lightly butter the foil with some of the melted butter. Stir the rest of the butter together with the crumbs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the brownie batter. Put the butter and chocolate in a large microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on medium power for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave again on half power until completely melted, about 2 minutes more. Mix in the sugars, vanilla and salt. Add the eggs one at a time and beat vigorously to make a thick and glossy batter. Fold in the flour and gently stir until just incorporated.
  3. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top is crispy and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few crumbs, about 40 to 45 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and nestle the chocolate chunks into the brownie crust. Top with marshmallows.
  5. Carefully position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and preheat on low. Toast marshmallows under the broiler until golden, (keep an eye on it, it can go quick), about 2 minutes.
  6. Cool on a rack, gently removing the brownies from the pan using the aluminum flaps. Carefully separate any marshmallow from the foil and fold away. Cut into 12 (2-inch) squares. (I found that dipping the knife into a glass of warm water helped to reduce any stickiness when cutting.)
