S'More Brownies

Who doesn't love s'mores? And who doesn't love brownies? Can't you imagine what a combination of the two would taste like? In college, my roommate and I made these delectable delights, and I decided to revisit them today. These are perfect to enjoy with your family and friends because undoubtedly, you will end up with marshmallow all over your fingers and face... but that's half the fun isn't it. Here's the recipe:

*6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
*1 1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
*2 tablespoons sugar
*Pinch fine salt

*Brownie mix... follow directions and ingredients from box.

*4 large marshmallows per brownie

Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat oven to temperature indicated on box. Line an 8 by-8-inch square baking pan with foil so it hangs over the edges by about 1 inch.

For the crust: Lightly butter the foil with some of the melted butter. Stir the rest of the butter together with the crumbs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the brownie mix according to package directions.

Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake according to package directions or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few crumbs.

Remove from the oven and carefully position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and preheat on low. Layer marshmallows across the top and toast under the broiler until golden, (keep an eye on it, it can go quick), about 2 minutes. Cool on a rack, gently removing the brownies from the pan using the aluminum flaps. Carefully separate any marshmallow from the foil and fold away. Cut into 12 (2-inch) squares.
