I've been on a bit of a rebel kick these past couple Sundays. Messing with granita flavors, turning pancakes into muffins...stuff like that. I like that about Sundays with Joy, you test your limits, buy new ingredients, putz around with recipes to make them your own.
This week, as I flipped to the page labeled "S'mores Brownies," I knew that nothing more could possibly be done.
In short, I kept them just as they are in Joy's book. Dense, fudge-y brownies filled with graham crackers and topped with marshmallows that toast perfectly in the oven. Who knew that a piece of heaven could be so easy to put together?
But, I did have one minor complaint. There weren't nearly enough marshmallows for my mallow-lovin' taste buds. S'mores are great, but do we always need the graham crackers and chocolate? Give me a plain ol' marshmallow any day.
The first time I made these, I did try adding chopped marshmallows to the batter. They actually melted and blended in, and you couldn't really tell that they were there, especially with the molten marshmallows already on top.
So this time round, I just made the recipe as is. To cure my marshmallow desires, I figured that something should be added after the brownies were all baked up. The lovely Carrie, of Bakeholic Mama (also the founder and administrator of Sundays with Joy), has this amazing gooey s'mores bar recipe. This crazy marshmallow topping is included, and I knew that it was just what these brownies needed.
To get your hands on this recipe, I highly recommend the purchase of Joy's book! Ferreals. I have loved every single recipe that I've made, as my gushing reviews indicate.
But if you simply can't wait to get your hands on these brownies, the recipe is also on Joy's blog here! Enjoy.
