S’mores Brownies for National S’mores Day

I have a really bad habit of going MIA on my blog.  I swear I don’t mean to it just kinda happens.  Time flies when you’re having fun I guess.  Speaking of having fun I have to share my excitement that a few hours from now I will be boarding a plane to Las Vegas for one of my very dearest friend’s bachelorette party.  I cannot wait to see her and the rest of the girls (It’s been almost a year since I’ve seen any of them)!

Okay so back to business, I figured since I’ve been gone so long I owed it to you guys to make a decent comeback by making something yummy.  Since today is National S’mores Day I had to make something s’moreish (yes, I did just say s’moreish) and when I came across these brownies from My Baking Addiction I knew that these would be perfect to make for this special day (my comeback and S’mores Day).

S'mores Brownies

recipe from: my baking addiction

Ingredients:

For the Crust:

1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 12 graham crackers)
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
2 eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

For the Topping:

20 large marshmallows; cut in half

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch-square metal baking pan with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

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.

Turn the oven temperature up to 400 degrees and prepare the brownie layer.

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.

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.

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.

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 squares.
