I am a firm believer that when most people think of their childhood, they have at least one memory of eating smores around a campfire. Roasting marshmallows in whatever fashion you liked (lightly browned, black, somewhere in between!)…most people can remember making smores at some point in their lives. I remember making them as a little kid, carefully rotating my stick in order to lightly brown all the edges…sometimes pulling off the outer layer, slightly crunchy layer before smashing the inner gooey part between graham crackers and chocolate!
When I saw a recipe for Smores Brownies, I knew I HAD to make them. I’m currently in the mindset that everything I bake is in trial for my future bakery, and I definitely think customers would be interested in the idea of these brownies! Who can resist going back to the childhood? Also, the presentation would be pretty good as well…gotta think about people peering into the counter! Let’s get to it:
I used the Food Network’s Smores Brownie Recipe. It received good reviews, so why not? The only problem was that I don’t own an 8×8 baking pan, so I used a nine inch pie dish instead…worked just as well! Here’s the result:
So how were they?? I must say…I was a bit disappointed. I love brownies and the brownie portion just didn’t live up to my expectations. Also, these took over an hour to bake…the toothpick kept coming out wet! Not sure what that was about. I do like the idea of these brownies, but I think they need a bit of fixing up…and to sell in a bakery, I’d have to learn how to cut them so they look pretty.
While attempting to chop the chocolate for the brownies, I kind of chopped my finger…chopped out an entire chunk of skin!! It’s been a few hours and I’m still bleeding through the bandaid…probably since I’m typing and not putting pressure on it! I’ll throw some ice on it and see how it does. I don’t think it could be stitched since a literal chunk was taken out (sorry for the queasy ones out there!), so we’ll see. I’m only losing drops of blood so it’s not that terrible. Don’t worry, nothing got into the brownies!
Stop by if you want some brownies! I doubt these would ship well….what a gooey marshmallow mess that would be!!
