S'mores Brownies

I am not a camper. I tried. For a really long time I thought that I could become a camper, but it's just not going to happen. Since coming to terms with my dislike for sleeping on the ground (combined with growing fear of snakes) I've really missed s'mores. There are a lot of good things about camping, nature can be pretty amazing but also s'mores. S'mores are always incredible, whether you are one of those who will slowly roast your marshmallow until it is perfectly golden brown and gooey and delicious, or if you just stick it in the flames and get your daily dose of carbon. 

With summer now upon us I thought these would be an appropriate treat to prepare for book club and would also help quash my s'mores craving.

Taken from: Joy the Baker Cookbook


11/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
5 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup roughly crushed graham crackers
12 large marshmallows

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter and flour a 9X13 inch baking pan.

2) Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

3) Place a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water to melt the butter and chocolate. Once melted and smooth, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Whisk in the sugars. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, until well combined. Whisk in the vanilla and add the dry ingredients. Fold in the graham crackers.

4) Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Dot with marshmallow and bake for 30 to 40 minutes (mine took 38). The Marshmallows will be brown and puffy, but will deflate once cooled.
