Gimme S'more: Delicious S'more Brownies

S'more brownies by Nicole
Brownies can be a polarizing subject: cakey or fudgy? Frosted or unadorned? Wars haven't been fought over the subject, but I'm pretty sure that punches have probably been thrown.

In a 2007 NY Times article, Julia Moskin wrote that “The ideal modern brownie is simple and unadorned, but rigorously designed (like a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress).” While she has a powerful point here, it's clear that she's never tasted the s'more brownies made by multitalented CakeSpy buddy Nicole (who happens to be a baker, pet shop owner and occasional clothing store employee...how many hours are in her day?). These decadent little chocolatey nuggets get a perfect little slightly salted crunch from lightly crushed graham crackers and an absolutely heavenly texture from the marshmallows. She served these at a recent get together at her house, and they disappeared faster than you could say (in your saddest Oliver voice, natch) "S'more, please".

Luckily Nicole has shared the recipe so that we may all attain this well-accessorized brownie nirvana at home.

 

 

Nicole's S'more Brownies
  • 2 eggs
  • 1c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 c. shortening, melted (CS Note: Not sure how it would affect the recipe to use butter instead here, but I'm not anti-shortening and thought it gave them a nice chewiness).
  • 2 -1 oz squares unsweetened chocolate melted
  • 3/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 c. slightly crushed graham crackers
  • 10 large marshmallows, cut in half

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs lightly with a spoon. Stir in sugar, salt and vanilla. add shortening and chocolate. Stir in flour and graham crackers. Do not beat at any time. Spread mixture into 8 inch square pan. Place marshmallow pieces on top of brownies; bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes. (Nicole's note: brownies should still be soft; let cool in pan
before cutting.)

 

 

By the way, if you're in the Seattle area, your canine friends can enjoy Nicole's baking too--she sells homemade dog biscuits at her pet store Immortal Dog Pet Supply! Just saying.

I am actually not generally a brownie fan--but these are yummo.

Normally when I make brownies I like them fudgy and unadorned. But I think the brownies I like best are the ones I'm eating at the moment. ;)

I love putting (vegan) marshmallows in brownies! SO good!

I prefer dressed up brownies. These look grand!

I would eat a tire if it was branded as "s'more." Thanks for the recipe!

Smore and brownies at the same recipe? That is just heavenly! The marshmallow looks very gooey, and I love it. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
