I had such a great week off this 4th of July. My hubby and I had family members from New York stay with us and we swam, visited our local Amish Market, went to the Annapolis parade and watched the fireworks, saw the Orioles beat the Yankees and took an evening cruise on the Sea Spirit with Chesapeake Nautical Cruises. Thanks again, Captain Steve! And, thanks to Family Frugal Fun we also had s’mores by the fire pit.
S’mores brownie recipe ingredients:
Graham cracker crumbs (they come in a box in the baking section, I prefer Keebler)
Brownie Mix (Like Betty Crocker)
Coconut Oil (you can use butter if you prefer)
Marshmallows (bag of large size, I prefer Kraft)
On every box of graham cracker crust is a recipe for crust. My box called for butter but instead, to give the s’mores a sweeter flavor I used coconut oil (better for you, too!). Now, on the brownie s’more you want a thick graham cracker crust – not a thin pie like crust. So, plan on making 1.5 to 2 times the amount the recipe calls for to get a good thick crust.
Here was my crust recipe for a standard 9.5 X 13 size pan
2 Cups Graham cracker crumbs
5 tbsp sugar (I prefer powdered sugar for this)
slightly over 1/2 cup Coconut oil
Mix and press into your pie shell or pan.
Pour brownie mix on top (I prefer Betty Crocker). Instead of vegetable oil or butter in my brownie mix I used coconut oil as a replacement.
Bake at 350° degrees until brownies are 85% cooked (edges are cooked and just some left in the middle that needs to finish baking). Then, carefully remove from oven and add marshmallows to the top covering all the brownies. Finish baking until brownies are cooked and marshmallows are golden. If you haven’t gotten the golden look by the time your brownies are done, place your dish under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes!
Cut and serve after marshmallows have cooled.
