S'more Recipes!

If you remember, in August I posted a yummy recipe for S'more cupcakes from Rebecca Rather's Parties cookbook.  They were delicious but a little time consuming to make.  I started wondering if you could make a short cut version, something that tasted just as good but much quicker to make with ingredients you are likely to have on hand in the pantry.  Voila... my creation is brownie s'mores!  Easy to make and everyone will love them.  I promise.  In fact, I had to get them out of the house and fast, so I took them to work!

Do you like s'mores?  Try these brownies. 

Super Quick Brownie S'mores

For the Crust:
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted

For the Brownies:
2 packages of Ghiradelli's Double Chocolate brownie mix 
1 small jar marshmallow cream
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until well blended . Press mixture into a 9X 13 inch baking dish.

In a separate bowl, mix both brownie mixes according to directions on package.  Pour them both over the top of the graham cracker crust.  Bake according to directions for the brownies.  I found that it took about the same time as it would without the crust.  When the brownie are set in the middle, remove from oven.  Let cool for 5 minutes.

Carefully scoop out the marshmallow cream and drop on top of the brownies.  Wait a minute or two for the marshmallow cream to get soft before spreading over the brownies.  Top with mini marshmallows.  Turn oven to broil, return brownies to oven, watching VERY CAREFULLY, and remove when mini marshmallows are lightly toasted.  Remember, the tops of the marshmallows can burn very quickly, so keep your eye on them.  Remove from oven.  Wait 5 minutes, sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Allow to cool (if you can).  Devour!
