Tailgate Treat - S'More Brownies



In less than two weeks we will be attending our first MSU tailgate of this football season. Melissa and her roommates, along with our friend's son, who is also a student, will stop by before the football game and we love to have great food for them to enjoy. We will serve something substantial, but I thought a chocolate dessert would be a great addition to the tailgate menu. Since the tailgate is at the start of Labor Day weekend; the traditional end of summer, a fun dessert would be a S'more Brownie.

The pin that I added to my Recipe board, on Pinterest, seemed easy, but did not include ingredient amounts or clear directions. So, I thought I would give the recipe a trail run in advance, to make sure the brownies were as good as they looked in the photo.

These were even more delicious than I imagined they would be. Melted chocolate, melted marshmallow and crunchy graham cracker, all on top of fudgy brownies. I had a small taste ( I couldn't resist), put a few out for my husband to enjoy and put the rest in the freezer to save for game day. Something tells me they will go quick once the students arrive at the tailgate :-)


Recipe for S'more Brownies

Prepare brownies with 13 x 9 brownie mix according to the directions. While brownies are baking, break 4 - 5 graham crackers into small pieces. Also chop 4 regular Hersey bars into small pieces. When brownies are done remove from oven and immediately top with 3/4 bag mini marshmallows. Sprinkle graham crackers on top of marshmallows. Place in broiler until marshmallows begin to melt and brown slightly. Take care not to burn graham crackers. Remove from broiler and immediately sprinkle chopped chocolate on top. Cut in squares when cool.

Have a great day!
