8 Inch Pan S’mores Brownies are adapted from an old article in Cook’s Country which included several variations on brownies.
This version is comprised of a graham cracker crumb crust topped with layer of fudge brownies and broiled marshmallows. The brownies are rich and fudgy, so I recommend lining the pan with foil for easy removal.
For a clean cut, lift the 8 Inch Pan S’mores Brownies from the pan and let them cool. Freeze the whole slab, then cut with a chef’s knife while frozen.
As you can see, if I’ve worked on my technique a bit over the years. Here’s an old photo.
8 Inch Pan S’mores Brownies
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
- Pinch of salt optional
- 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter 4 ounces
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 2 cups approximately marshmallows
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch square metal pan with nonstick foil.
- Crust: Mix the graham cracker crumbs with the sugar, melted butter and salt (if using). Press into bottom of pan and bake for 6 minutes.
- Brownies: Melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave, a double boiler or heavy saucepan set over low heat. Let cool for about 5 minutes.
- Whisk the eggs and sugar and vanilla together in a mixing bowl.
- Stir the slightly cooled chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, then stir in the salt and baking powder. Add flour and stir until well blended.
- Pour the brownie mixture over the graham crust, then return to oven and bake for 22-26 minutes or until set.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle marshmallows over top in one generous layer.
- Adjust oven rack so that brownies are about 6 inches from broiler element, then set brownies under broiler (set on high) for 1 minute or until golden. Keep a close eye, because marshmallows brown quickly!
- Let cool on a rack. When cool, chill. Lift from pan and cut into squares. For a cleaner cut, freeze before slicing.
