A s’mores craze has taken over the dessert world! S’mores themed desserts are everywhere I turn in any way, shape and form imaginable.
The first written recipe for s’mores was titled “some more” and published in the 1927 book Tramping (Tee-hee…Maybe not the best choice of words for a girl scout guide) and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. The recipe included all the ingredients for the s’mores we know and love today: a toasted marsmallow sandwiched between a chocolate bar and graham crackers. Later versions in the 1940′s also have apple slices included as a substitute for graham crackers and pineapple slices or peanut butter in place of the chocolate.
The girl scout book also says “Though it tastes like “some more” one is really enough.” Not. The first campfire s’more to cross my lips was in the brownies. It was a two-biter that did not satisfy because my troop leaders didn’t have enough to go around and cut them in thirds. Boo.
S’mores brownies usually call for a buttery graham cracker crust like you would find in a cheesecake recipe. Not these. I took the easy route. Brownies already have a ton of butter and why complicate things? Life is too short. Time is precious. I want to spend it eating s’mores.
I slapped some graham crackers right on the bottom of the pan, poured marshmallow brownies over top and voila! Not-so-fussy s’mores brownies in a flash.
Fudgy and chewy, one is all you need.
They won’t leave you wanting some-more.
