Hi Everyone! I am so honored to be invited to do a guest post here on
ValSoCal, one of my very favorite blogs. Thank you, Val, for inviting me.
Now that Summer is here my family has been enjoying picnics at the park with
our friends on Sundays; a favorite Summer tradition. One of my favorite
childhood memories is of roasting marshmallows over a beach bonfire or
campfire and making s'mores. Did you do that too? But what if you want that
warm gooey-marshmallowy-chocolatey goodness without the campfire?
What's a girl to do? Well, not to fret my friend, just whip up a batch of
cute portable Smore's Brownies in jars and tote 'em along to your next
picnic. I think any dessert in a jar is just darling, but if you don't have
any you can of course use a baking pan.
S'mores Brownies in Jars (or pan)
makes about 12 jars
1 1/4 cups (about 10 graham crackers) graham cracker crumbs
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon saltMarshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter.
Press into bottoms of jars, ramekins, or a 9 in square baking pan. Bake 7
In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; gradually stir into the egg
mixture until well blended. Bake about 15 minutes (for small jars, 25
minutes for a pan), or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Preheat broiler. Top brownies with marshmallows. Broil until marshmallows
brown. Watch closely, it takes just a minute!
