S'mores Bars

Who needs a campfire for amazing s’mores? And what can be better than making them into a brownie? Nothing? OK, maybe world peace or Ryan Gosling’s abs, but let’s just say these brownies are really good! AND they are easy to make which you really can’t beat. They are great for a group of kids who want to get their sugar fix (I made them for my 15 year old sister’s birthday party and they were a huge hit).
How can you resist these gooey bars of pure happiness?

Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 brownie mix box
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Here’s what to do:

Preheat the oven to 325° F and the line an 8×8 inch pan (I used an 8×10 casserole dish) with foil and spray it with Pam.

Mix the melted butter with the graham cracker crumbs until all the butter is incorporated. Press the crust down into the bottom of the pan. Place the crust into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

While the crust is cooking, prepare the brownie mix as it says on the box. When the crust is done, pull it out and pour the brownie mix on top. Put it back in the oven and cook it for as long as it says on the box (I cooked mine for about 40 minutes). You’ll know it’s done when you put a knife through the center and it comes out clean.

Next, switch your oven settings to broil. Place the marshmallows on top of the brownie. The marshmallows will melt, so it is ok if there is still some brownie showing. Put the pan into the broiler for about 1 minute or until the marshmallows are golden brown (mine burnt a little, but I like them like that). Make sure to check them after about 45 seconds because they could easily burn if you leave the in for too long.

Leave the brownies to cool for a little while and the dig in!!
