Recipe of the Day: S’more Brownies

by in Recipes, May 18th, 2011

chocolate brownie smores
This is not your average brownie and yes, you can start drooling now.

A crust of butter, sugar and graham cracker is pressed evenly over the bottom of the pan than baked to golden perfection. Next, a thick, fudgy brownie batter gets poured on top and baked just until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. At that point, large marshmallows are added to the top of the dessert and put under the broiler under slightly melted.

Three different layers form three scrumptious textures.

Tip: While dinner is cooking, bake these showstoppers. By the time you’ve finished eating and washed the dishes, these brownies will have cooled down and be ready to eat.
