#National S'mores Day!!

Monday, August 10, 2015

S'mores.... From rustic autumn campfires to cozy winter nights all snuggled up by the fireplace...  These ooey-gooey, delicious treats is what heaven is made of.  But how was this delectable snack thought of?  The origin is unclear, but most say it was thanks to the Girl Scouts!  In 1927 there came the first recipe of this tasty treat, printed in a Girl Scout handbook called, 'Tramping and Trailing".   Apparently the girls loved them so much they'd shout, "...Some more, some more!" naming this sweet sandwich "Some Mores" and as the years progressed, it was shortened to "S'mores" :) 

Today I'd like to celebrate this wondrous day with some brownie-s'mores made by yours truly! It's really simple, I promise :)

S'mores Brownies

Ingredients:

1 box of fudge brownie mix (follow ingredients/directions on the box!)
1 bag of large marshmallows
1 jar of chocolate fudge sauce
5 or more crumbled graham crackers

Directions:

  • Prepare brownie batter per package directions  and pour into a prepared cake pan. Bake it for the directed time on the package. 
  • In the meantime cut each marshmallow in half (about 20 marshmallows) and set aside.
  • Check your brownies with a toothpick inserted into the center. They're done when there are moist crumbs clinging to the toothpick when you pull it back out.
  • Turn oven to broil
  • Top the brownies with marshmallows, neatly, then place brownies back into the oven under the broiler and watch carefully.  Marshmallows will start to brown quickly within the first minute or 2.
  • Take brownies back out after desired burn on marshmallows.
  • Heat up the fudge sauce in 30 second intervals until it's smooth enough to drizzle.
  • Drizzle sauce over marshmallows
  • Top with crumbled graham crackers and enjoy!

You can really play around with this recipe as much as you'd like!  Instead of neatly placing the marshmallows, you could use smaller marshmallows and just dump them on top before broiling =D
Have you tried this recipe out? Let me know how it went!
