S’mores Brownie Bars

S’mores the season! Although s’mores always trigger campfire memories of romantic summers, they also remind me of cold nights in front of the fireplace while clutching a hot chocolate in one hand and a thick blanket in the other.  My grandpa, who could easily supply about 3 warehouse stores from his collection of “tools” in his garage, recently gave me a blow torch to use for baking feats. I contemplated making a baked alaska or lemon merengue pie with my newly acquired toy, but then I thought: S’MORES!!! These s’mores brownies combine a campfire classic with a chocolate lover’s favorite dessert…When the marshmallows are freshly melted and gooey, who can resist this amazing treat?! If you think brownies are good, think again, for these s’mores brownie bars top them all! Enjoy!!

***NOTE: Instead of using the big marshmallows, you could substitute them for mini marshmallows or even marshmallow fluff. Also, if you don’t have a torch, the recipe instructs you to bake the marshmallows in the oven for the last 10 minutes.

Cookie Dough Blondie-Brownies

Summer School week 4: Brownies. Brownies are always a never-fail crowd pleaser! Although I keep getting requests to make my World’s Best Brownies for my physics class, I wanted to experiment with a new brownie recipe. Personally I LOVE blondie-type bars, like my M&M Cookie Bars, so I was so excited to find a Blondie-Brownie recipe that combines the best of both worlds; It’s a fudgy chocolate brownie on top with a layer of sweet blondie perfection on the bottom. These brownie bars were crowned “Best Brownie” by my class, and my mom swears they are are “to die for”!!! Enjoy!!

World’s Best Brownies (Better than the box!)

I’m not usually a brownie lover, but after tasting these chocolaty treats, I think I have been converted! When I took these to summer school for a brain-powering snack, everyone else agreed– these brownies are AMAZING! The fudgy chocolate center is absolutely delectable, and the brownie-from-the-box thin, perfectly crinkled top  makes this the ultimate brownie recipe. They are truly the best of all time!! Feel free to add your own twist (Oreos, Peppermint Patties, Girl Scout Cookies, etc…), but these brownies are amazing just own their own, so I say be a purist! I added chocolate chips to mine, and if you want to keep the chips intact, make sure to put them in the freezer while you make the batter and do not mix them in until the batter has cooled. Enjoy!!

Recipe: The Best Brownies You’ll Ever Eat….

***NOTE: DO NOT OVER BAKE!!!!!! (I have to force myself to take out the brownies even before I think they are fully cooked)

My only regret: Not using a brownie baking pan for a never-ending crust! But still, these are just mouthwatering!
