Traveling & Brownies

Oh hello again!

I’ve been traveling and packing and traveling, so I haven’t been able to update as of late! It feels good to be home again after four to five months at school ^^ Actually, it’s just nice to be back in warm weather. (A.k.a. above 40 degrees) 

And now I’m heading on a plane again to visit more family! Most of whom I don’t remember how we’re related. Too many cousins, aunts, uncles, second cousins, aunts once removed, etc. Mmm another long plane ride! More time to relax, draw, sleep, watch boring TV, sleep, draw on my brother’s face…

A little more about me: I’m a Tufts University student studying biomedical engineering and a doctor hopeful! My favorite dessert might be cheesecake. It might also be snickerdoodle cookies. Or mango lassi. Or pumpkin pie. Or or or… -_______- too many options!

Yes. I like to travel. We have a family friend who sends us cookies from afar, and they’re always delicious! We got them yesterday, though, so we didn’t have time to enjoy that. Maybe I will do that, too, (Send cookies, I mean) so I have an excuse to bake, since I don’t eat a lot of my own baked goods anyway heh. 

Anywho, I mentioned that I was going to share my s’more brownie recipe! This one is courtesy of allrecipes.com (nothing fancy, but always reliable)!

This one was for the freshmen in my Freshmen Small Group Bible study that I co-lead at school! It was quickly devoured, though with some difficulty because of the gooey mess it creates. But that’s the best type of mess, right?

I usually use pretty easy recipes, and this one’s no exception: it uses brownie mix! You just plop that in, put some ‘mallows and chocolate and graham cracker goodness on top, and you’re ready to nom nom nom ALL THE DELICIOUS

Ingredients:

  • 1 box brownie mix (I used one for a 9×13 pan)
  • 6 graham crackers
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshamallows
  • 8 (1.5 oz) bars milk chocolate or chocolate chips (I used the chips since that’s what I had on me!)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare brownie mix according to box directions and spread in greased 9×13 inch pan. Make sure it’s generously greased, or it’ll be hard to remove the brownies when they’re done!
  2. In a medium bowl, break the graham crackers into smaller pieces and toss with 1 cup of the mini marshmallows and chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar. Mix so everything is well distributed and set aside.
  3. Bake brownies for 25-30 minutes. Then take them out of the oven and spread the s’mores mixture over them. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If the marshmallows start to get to dark before the brownies are done, place a piece of aluminium foil over the pan for the remaining time. Let the brownies cool before cutting them into squares. 

The original recipe said to bake the brownies for 15 minutes and then with the s’mores mixture for an additional 15-20 minutes, but other reviews said it worked better if the s’mores mixture was baked for less time.

Feel free to use more marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers as desired! I think I should’ve put more graham crackers, and maybe even done a graham cracker crust, either on the bottom of the brownies or in between the brownies and marshmallow layer. Regardless, the brownies were delicious and tasted like a fresh, delectable s’more straight from a campfire! Now to sing kumbaya and all that jazz ^_^ Enjoy!
