S’more success

After the other night’s smorefail, I decided to walk away and sleep on it. I awoke in the morning with an idea – more graham cracker! More crumbs!

I made the new and improved bars and took them to my work picnic, and…
These bars were a hit.
I’m being modest… they were a smashing success.
 Here is what I came up with. It looks complicated, but trust me it is easier than you think!

Layer one – graham cracker crust
(adapted from Beantown Baker)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Beat butter and sugar on high until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together graham cracker, flour, baking powder, and salt, then add to butter, sugar, and egg mixture. Stir until incorporated, then spread dough on the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan.

Layer two – brownie
Make a box of milk chocolate brownie mix (you will need 2 eggs, 1/2 – 3/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup water). Add a handful of chocolate chips, then spread on top of the graham cracker dough.

At this point, you will need to bake the brownie/graham dough at 350 degrees for 28 minutes. Let cool for a 5-10 minutes, and turn your oven up to broil for layers three and four.

Layer three – graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix until incorporated. Sprinkle on top of brownie.

Layer four – marshmallow
Sprinkle a layer of mini marshmallows on top of the graham cracker crumbs. Put under the broiler for ~30 seconds. Keep an eye on it – the marshmallows will burn fast!

Get out some knives and forks, and serve while still warm and gooey. Get ready to get crumbs EVERYWHERE 🙂
Thank you, friends and family, for all your comments and concern. I couldn’t have done it without you!
