My kids have a thing for yummy, gooey s’mores! I have tried so many different variations of the recipe, and have two versions of s’mores on this blog. They tell me there's just something about marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers that just works in any shape or form, and I agree! So instead of waiting for summer campfires to make these treats, this s'mores bake allows you to have this staple summer dessert anytime of the year, which is a huge bonus for our climate! I told my kids to put away their roasting sticks and help me prep some baking pans!
The combination of chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers, all wrapped up in a buttery, brown-sugar based dough, is simply divine! This delicious s'mores bake is so quick and tasty, 30 minutes from start to finish!
*Sometimes, my son likes to switch out the semi-sweet chocolate chips for different chocolate bars. So far, these have been a hit: Caramilk, Reese's, Rolo's, Skor Bar.
1/2 cup of unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
1 large egg
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
5 full-size graham crackers, roughly chopped (it yields about 2 cups)
1 cup of mini marshmallows
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, and spray with cooking spray. Set it aside.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, it takes about 1 minute on high power.
Wait a couple of minutes before adding the egg so that you don’t scramble it! After a few minutes, add the egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and mix it all until it's smooth.
Add the flour and stir until it's combined, avoid overmixing.
Add the graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate chips and fold them in. *I have to stop here for a second because every time I use that sentence, I chuckle. So what exactly does it mean to “fold in” an ingredient- David Rose from Schitts Creek said it best: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=08EfLhnG2jg
Transfer the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until the edges and the center have firmed up. You can add another 5 minutes of baking time if needed.
Allow the bake to cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving. This part is very challenging: the wait!
Bon appétit! Enjoy!
