brownies stuffed with smores

Have I made this before?
I don't know.
I'm too lazy to look back at my old brownie posts and see.
Honestly I'm not that into brownies; I can't just like any old kind.
I need to have some texture in there or if there can't be texture then it has to be made with the high quality cocoa. You know that deep, rich 60-70% cocoa chocolate?  Love that stuff.
So when I make brownies I go all out and dress them up.
Remember when I made the peanut butter cookie crusted brownies?
My taste buds do.  Man those were good!
OR how about the peanut butter & fluff brownies with salty cookie crust?
Yeah I remember those!
Those are worth gold in my house; aka they get hubby to do all those things that sit on the "honey-do" list.

Easy to make.
Just take your favorite brownie mix, pour half the batter into well greased pan, add a layer of mini
marshmallows (if you want the marshmallows still visible after baking then use larger marshmallows), add a layer of crushed grahams 1/2 - 1 cup, then top with remaining brownie batter, and bake.

No graham crackers?
Use shortbread, use Oreo's...you can use any type of crunchy cookie really.

I realize you cannot see the marshmallows in the brownies.  That's because I used the mini ones and they dissolved a bit, BUT there is a nice chewiness to the middle.
So if you feel the need to see the marshmallows, I suggest using large marshmallows, although they might stick out on the top--which is also a good thing.

brownies stuffed with smores
print recipe

take your favorite brownie recipe
pour half the batter into greased pan
layer on mini marshmallows or large ones (large will still be present after baking, mini will dissolve)
layer on crushed graham crackers 1/2 - 1 cup (add a pinch of salt to the crushed crackers)
gently push (just a little) the mixture down a bit
pour remaining brownie batter over top
smooth out with wet spatula or wet hands
bake according to original brownie baking directions

don't have crushed grahams? use crushed shortbread cookies.

  12. I tried marshmallows in brownies once. They kind of melted in the oven, but you were left with these lovely gooey, almost chewy parts! These look delicious!
