Gooey S'mores Brownies
I am so exhausted from work and moving that I really can't seem to form a witty or even intelligible post right now. But I did promise that this recipe would be up tonight. So here I am just typing away my rambling thoughts in hopes that something comes out. You know the tip they give writers who have writer's block? Just type everything that comes to mind because something will eventually come up that's worthwhile to keep. That might be why Charles Dickens was able to ramble on for so long (as that he was paid by the word and therefore had to write very lengthy drawn out novels just to make a living).
Now I know I'm supposed to ramble about brownies. But what else is there to say? Brownies are warm, gooey, and delicious. Brownies should be consumed by all for nothing other than pure enjoyment. And then add in marshmallows and I'm done. Basically, I just whipped up the best dessert any kid could wish for. Although if I had kids, I probably wouldn't make these are a regular basis because I'd have chocolate smears from gooey hands all over the house from the inevitable sugar high.
Basically, make this recipe and you won't regret it because it has chocolate, marshmallows, and optional ice cream that really isn't all that optional. Now go enjoy a trip to the dentist...I mean, a classic summer treat to reward you from those long, hot, summer days.
1 cup and 1 teaspoon unsalted butter or coconut oil
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
additional marshmallows, any size, for toppings (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9"x13" pan or line with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, microwave 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of butter/coconut oil for 1 1/2-2 minutes, allow to rest for a few minutes before stirring until smooth.
Add butter, both sugars, and eggs and mix well. Whisk in flour, salt, and cocoa powder until incorporated. Fold in remaining chocolate chips and marshmallows until evenly distributed.
Transfer batter to pan and bake for 32-35 minutes.
Optional: In the last couple minutes of baking, place marshmallows on top of the brownies, and broil the marshmallow topped brownies for the remaining 1-2 minutes. Keep an eye out as the marshmallows may burn.
Serve immediately with ice cream. Enjoy!
