Oh Happy S’mores Day!

Ghirardelli announced a S’mores contest in July and ever since then I’ve been busy in the kitchen creating the most outrageous and delicious flavors.  You’ve probably seen the photos posted on my social media pages.  I saw on the calendar that yesterday was National S’mores Day and I couldn’t resist making something else to celebrate this fabulous campfire staple. So I baked a pan of S’more Brownies and they exceeded my expectations! Graham cracker crust, brownie layer and marshmellows equals Deelicious!  I gave Ben and the girls specific orders not to touch them while I went for a run because they needed to cool and set up properly.  Instead they made their own because Kinsey spilled the beans with a cute story at breakfast.  “Mommy, we made our own s’mores in that thing!” (Thing = Microwave)  I wondered what they used so I went into the pantry and found their evidence – an opened marshmellow bag and an old chocolate Easter bunny. Oh my!  I took some of the brownies to work, left a few at home and gifted my friend, Anjali.  The container I took to work was empty by 10:30am!  I heard a lot of “mmmm”  sound effects!  I think they liked them!!!  The recipe is below.  Feel free to use my brownie recipe or one of your choice.  Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 metal baking pan with foil or parchment paper. (I use parchment)
  2. Place graham crackers in food processer and blend until they turn to crumbs. Pour into small bowl. Melt butter and combine with graham cracker crumbs. Mix well then press into pan with your hands or a flat object, like a measuring spoon. Set aside.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a small bowl and set aside. Mix eggs and sugar on medium speed for a minute or two until combined. Meanwhile, melt butter and chocolate until smooth. Pour chocolate mixture and vanilla into sugar bowl and mix until combined. Add flour and mix until incorporated. Pour batter on top of graham cracker crust and carefully spread evenly with a spatula. Bank for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Then top the brownies with marshmellows. Return to oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until the marshmellows brown. Keep an eye on them! Let brownies cool completely on a rack. Use a sharp knife to slice and enjoy!
