S’mores Blondies

I had never had a Blondie before.

I made these because I was dying to make/eat a blondie, and you know my obsession with all things S’more.

I saw this recipe and had to try it.

I now know that a Blondie is pretty much a cookie in bar form.

They are buttery, gooey and pretty phenomenal.

(Side Note)

Every time I hear the word phenomenal I think of the movie Wedding Crashers.

“Are you kidding me? I love crab cakes! They’re phenomenal”

AND

“You and I both know I’m a phenomenal dancer!”

Mikey says that second quote at least once a week.

If you know Mikey, you know he loves to dance…

As I sit here and share this recipe with you, I anxiously await the arrival of my husband and new kitten.

I am really excited to see them both!

So if I seem like I am rambling/distracted, it’s because I am.

I should probably talk about these bars a bit, huh?

You combine some butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, powdered sugar, salt and choc. chips.

While it’s baking, crush up some graham crackers and add some melted butter to those.

Try not to eat it all while waiting for the bars to bake.

Or eat it all and then make more…

This could be it.

You could leave them just like this and they would still be a delicious chocolate chip Blondie…

OR,

You could top them with marshmallows and buttery graham crackers and toast it all under the broiler.

Watch your marshmallows carefully.

Broilers are super hot!

Just ask my bro, Brad, about me and broilers…

In college I was at his apartment making dinner.

It is the only time I have ever cooked for him…

He says he remembers me screaming FIRE and then saw the flames reflecting in the window…

He reached in, grabbed the fish and threw it outside into a snowbank.

I cried.

Then we laughed and he bought me dinner.

He’s the greatest brother in the nation.

Try and fight me about it.

Recipe: S’mores Blondies

2 sticks Butter, Softened

2 cups Light Brown Sugar

2 whole Egg

1 teaspoon Vanilla

2 cups All-purpose Flour

1 pinch Salt

2 Tablespoons Powdered Suger

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1 1/4 cups Chocolate Chips (dark, semi-sweet or milk, depending on preference. I used semi, that’s all I had)

Graham/Marshmallow Topping 

2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted

3/4 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs

2 cups Mini Marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

If not using a non-stick pan, spray pan or use parchment paper to line so you can get these gooey bars out.

In a bowl, combine butter and brown sugar mixing until well combined.

Add in the eggs and vanilla mixing to incorporate.

Mix in the flour, salt, powdered sugar and baking powder until well combined.

Stir in chocolate chips and then spread batter into the baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes

You want these bars to stay gooey so an inserted toothpick should have a bit of the bars stuck to it.

While they bake, melt the butter and combine it with the graham cracker crumbs.

When the blondies finish baking, remove from oven and top with mini marshmallows and graham cracker crumb mixture.

Place under broiler and watch carefully until they begin to brown, about 2 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool completely before serving.

I found this recipe on the Tasty Kitchen Blog, posted by Cookin Cowgirl. I doubled this recipe, she made half this and baked it in an 8×8 pan.
