How to make smore brownies using golden grahams – the fudgy brownies are layered with toasted marshmallows, melted chocolate, and crunchy Golden Graham cereal.
In my church I get the privilege of teaching the 16-18 year old girls every Sunday. I love seeing their pretty faces each week! Along with each lesson I try my hardest to bring them a little treat. There is nothing better than sugar and feeling the SPIRIT. Right? I sent out a text to get an idea of what they wanted and the majority text back saying BROWNIES! A crowd pleaser for sure but I couldn’t just make boring normal fudge brownies. I decided to give them a SMORE twist and IT WAS DELICIOUS! They ate every crumb and requested again. So if these brownies passed the picky teenage girl test than you know they’ve got to be good. Just remember to have the napkins handy because they are a square of ooey gooey goodness.
Smore Brownies with Golden Grahams
- 1 1/3 cups butter; softened
- 2 2/3 cups sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup baking cocoa
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup Golden Graham cereal
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 4 oz milk chocolate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour, cocoa, and salt.
Spread into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs. DO NOT OVER BAKE!
Preheat the broiler. Sprinkle baked brownies with marshmallows and cereal. Broil 1-3 minutes on the upper middle rack. Watch carefully and remove once the marshmallows start to turn golden brown. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate. Cover with foil and let stand for 5 minutes until chocolate begins to melt. Remove foil and cool before cutting into squares.
The only tip I have for this recipe is to watch closely watch at the broiling stage. Don’t place the pan on the very top rack directly under the broiler. The Golden Graham cereal gets toasty before the marshmallows have a chance to melt. I recommend putting the pan on the oven rack that is 2 down from the top.
If you look in my archives you will see that I have a slight obsession with anything SMORE….
