Recipe of the Week: Triple – Layer S’mores


img_0744

Ingredients:

Crust:
1 2/3 Cups graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbsp. melted butter
3 Tbsp. sugar

Brownies:
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup flour

Topping:
1 1/2 cups mini
marshmallows

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square pan (I doubled the batch, so I used a 16×8-inch pan). Blend together the ingredients for the crust and press them into the pan. Bake for 8 minutes.

2. Pour the melted butter into a large bowl. Whisk in the sugar and salt until creamy. Stir in the cocoa and flour just until incorporated. Bake for 40–45 minutes.

3. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top of the batter and broil on low for one minute. Watch out!

The last step of these three-layer brownies is to broil the marshmallow topping for one minute. The first time I made them, I left the kitchen for a couple of minutes while they were broiling. Afterward, I returned to the kitchen and opened the oven. The brownies were on fire. I shut the oven, hoping that this would cut off oxygen to the fire. When that didn’t work, I paced back and forth, ringing my hands and shouting expletives. I put my hand on the fire extinguisher before realizing that I have no idea how fire extinguishers work. When I was about to throw water from a bowl into the oven, the fire just stopped. So I am hoping that you will learn from my mistake and watch these like a hawk while they are under the broiler. They only take one minute, no more and no less.
