Smore Brownie Bars

Last month I wanted to try and make a new dessert to serve after Christmas dinner. I started searching online and everything that I was seeing took tons of prep time. I wanted something pretty simple to make but would turn out great. That's when I found the Smores Brownie Bars. They were a total hit at Christmas and I was asked to make them again. I thought I would share them this time!

Here's what you need...

Baking Pan
Marsh Mellows
Graham Crackers
1 box of Brownie Mix
Oil
Water
Two Eggs
Mixing bowl
 
Pre-heat your oven to 350 and start with the brownie mix. You'll want to empty the brownie mix in your mixing bowl. Follow the directions on the mix. Add your two eggs, water and oil. It'll look like this...

Once you've got all your ingredients from the brownie mix into your bowl start stirring them together. You'll want to mix the batter about 50 times or until it becomes well mixed and no lumps. When it's ready it will start to look like this...

Now you'll need to prepare your baking pan. You have a few different options of how to do this. You can either spray it with a baking spray (which is the method I used), grease the pan or butter it. Once you've got your pan you will pour a small layer of the brownie batter into the pan. Don't pour a lot, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan.


Once you've got the layer of brownie mix into the pan you need to cover it with graham crackers. Depending on the size of your pan the crackers will not match up in length or shape. Gently break the crackers without cracking them into pieces and line them on top of the chocolate. Make sure to cover as much of the chocolate as you can.

Once the crackers are on top of the chocolate open the bag of marsh mellows. Scatter a generous amount of the marsh mellows on top of the crackers. Try not to pile the marsh mellows on top of each other but evenly  disperse them on top of the crackers. Typically I eat half the bag while their out. Try not to do that.

Once you've got your crackers down and the marsh mellows evenly on top of them you'll take the remaining chocolate mix in your bowl and spread it across the marsh mellows. Make sure to start on one end of your pan and make your way to the other side before you let all of your batter out of the mixing bowl. You'll want to make sure to cover the entire pan. It's ok to have a few areas of marsh mellows popping out.

Check your oven and make sure you are at 350. Place in the middle rack and leave in the oven for 35 minutes. Take out the pan and place a toothpick in the center to see if  the brownie mix is done. If it's not place back into the oven for another 10 minutes. These typically take anywhere from 35-45 minutes depending on your pan and oven. Once the mix isn't gooey, place the pan on a cooling rack or trivet to cool. Allow the pan to cool and cut into squares when their luke warm. Depending on how large you cut them they make from 9-12 bars.
 
Enjoy!

These Smore bars are easy to make with little to no prep work. Once you've mixed the ingredients and place in the oven it's just a waiting game.
