Baking Expedition: S’more Brownies

 



This month's Baking Expedition was S'more Brownies. I found the recipe online through Taste of  Home. It's pretty straightforward, graham cracker crust, brownie with mini marshmallows mixed in, mini marshmallows, and more graham cracker crumbs sprinkled on top. 


Here's the thing that ended up being weird, it was exactly like a s'more that had been made with a baked good instead of a chocolate bar. I think the addition of the mini marshmallows to the brownie itself made it come out more cake like than brownie like. So it was more s'more bar than s'more brownie. 


Here’s the recipe as found on Taste of Home website


Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 whole crackers)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • brownies:
  • 1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup dark baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • topping:
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 5 whole graham crackers, broken into bite-sized pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon. Stir in melted butter. Press onto bottom of an ungreased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, 7-9 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. For brownies, melt unsweetened chocolate on high in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Cool slightly. Cream butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition; beat in melted chocolate and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; stir into creamed mixture. Fold in 1 cup miniature marshmallows. 
  3. Spread batter over graham cracker crust. Top with 1 cup marshmallows and broken graham crackers. Bake until center is set, 18-22 minutes (do not overbake).

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
