My oldest son is going to be 10 next week and he is loving anything S’mores right now. Daniel is such a sweet soul that he was very moved by the footage of the most recent tornados that have taken place in the US. He decided to make and sell some baked goodies and treats so that he could donate to that particular cause. In fact, we researched different S’mores-type recipes and this is one we ended up liking a whole lot. After they were made (and of course we HAD to sample a couple, just to be sure they were good 😉 ) he also requested that these be made in place of a traditional birthday cake for his party next week. They are a S’mores Lover’s Dream–graham crackers, chocolate brownie, mini-marshmallows, peanuts, and chocolate chips. Mmm, Mmm, Mmmm…..
Wanna make some for yourself? Here’s the recipe, originally taken from tasteofhome.com:
- 8-10 whole graham crackers
- 1 package fudge brownie mix
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 pan and line bottom with graham crackers. Prepare the brownie mixture according to package directions and pour over crackers. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until completely baked. Sprinkle top with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and peanuts. Bake @5 minutes longer or until marshmallows are puffed and getting a golden brown color. Cool before cutting!
