Conjuring Summer: S'mores Brownies


Here in Wisconsin, winter has been just a bit brutal. Between the "Polar Vortex" that seemed it would never end, to nearly constant 1-5 inch snowfalls, we're seriously looking forward to spring and summer.

Unfortunately, we haven't really reached the point in the season where we're seeing many new spring vegetables (but, oh! what we'd give for a nice bunch of local asparagus or a few morel mushrooms...) But, our minds are still trying to conjure up a bit of warmth with the recipes we create.

Take for instance our latest re-creation -- the s'mores brownie!

I mean, why not? They're great made over the campfire, but they are even better as a brownie, right?

Well, not always. We've tried a few too many "s'mores brownies" that don't quite make the cut. Some fall short in the chocolate department (either because the brownies are too cake-y, or because the chocolate flavor falls flat). Others don't give you enough of the "crunch" factor from the graham crackers.

So, we decided to come up with our own.

First, we developed the fudgiest brownie we could find. Then we surrounded it with melted dark chocolate and crisp graham crackers (a top AND bottom layer) and added a top layer of gooey, perfectly browned marshmallows.

Looking pretty good aren't they?

They’re easiest to cut when they’re fully cooled, but our guess is that you’ll have a difficult time waiting to sample their ooey-gooey goodness.

There are more great recipes where this one came from! We created this dish as part of our work with the Go Bold with Butter blog, where you'll find an amazing collection of delicious recipes using real butter.
