S’mores granola bars – SRC

7 Apr

The beginning of the month always brings a secret recipe club recipe! This month I was given Mellissa from a fit & spicy life. Mellissa has great recipes, fitness tips, restaurant reviews, and some wine tidbits on her site. After perusing her site I settled on these s’mores granola bars. They were super easy to make and put together. They looked delicious out of the oven. But something went wrong, the ingredients didn’t bind together. Nevertheless husband and I dug in with spoons and ate it like cereal. Delicious!

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons maple syrup
2 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups marshmallows

In a medium-sized saucepan set over medium heat, melt and stir together the butter, sugar, and syrup, cooking until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in oats, flour, salt, and graham cracker crumbs.
Press slightly more than half of the mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 9 inch pan. Let cool completely. Preheat the oven to 350F. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top, then the marshmallows. Top with remaining crust mixture. Bake the bars for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them rest for 20 minutes, then cut into squares or bars while still slightly warm.

S’mores popovers

21 Jan

I found a popover pan on clearance on target a couple weeks ago. I’d always wanted to try making popovers and s’mores popovers sounded yummy. These looked really cool while baking all fluffy and huge. But as they cooled they shrunk into nothing and became really dense. Not sure if I did something wrong or what?? Will have to attempt popovers again sometime!

3 eggs
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup All Purpose Flour
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbsps sugar
pinch salt
3 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
mini marshmallows


Preheat oven to 375F. Divide the butter into the cups of your Pop Over Pan. Place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes while you are making the batter.
In medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, vanilla, and sugar, then whisk in the flour, crumbs, and salt. Pour the batter into the butter filled cups, then evenly add a few chocolate chips to each cup. Return to oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue to bake for another 18 minutes. Carefully open oven and top with a few marshmallows. Leave in oven 4 more minutes. Drizzle with chocolate syrup, more marshmallows, and whipped cream. Serve and enjoy!

Marshmallow Crunch Brownie Bars

8 Nov

We (me and the kids) love Nutella. I smear my waffles with it every morning. My sons favorite food is a chocolate sandwich. So when jif came out with their own chocolate spread I was skeptical. I had a coupon so I bought a jar of the mocha cappuccino variety figuring it was different enough. It’s ok but nothing like nutella. Not as smooth. So I searched for a recipe to use it up. These came out good, definitely rich. Too rich for me. The husband ended up eating most of it 🙂


Marshmallow Crunch Brownie Bars
adapted from love from the oven

1 box of your favorite brownie mix
1 bag marshmallows
1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
1 cup Jif Mocha cappuccino Flavored Hazelnut Spread
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

Bake your brownies according to the recipe or mix directions, but take them out 2-3 minutes early. After taking them out, top with your marshmallows and immediately return to the oven for three more minutes.

While the marshmallow topped brownies are in the oven, you will want to mix up your yummy topping. Combine your chocolate chips, Jif Spread and butter in a medium size sauce pan. Melt over low heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, remove from heat and add in your crushed graham crackers. Allow to cool for three minutes.

Spread your mixture over your marshmallow layer. Refrigerate to allow chocolate to set prior to cutting.

s’mores brownies YUM

22 Mar

this is the recipe ben picked when i overruled him and made the coconut caramel cake.  It is really really good!!  its not going to last long here!   for the brownie layer i just used ghiradelli boxed brownie mix.




7 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (8 or 9 whole graham crackers)
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
pinch of salt

8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
3 to 4 cups mini marshmallows
about 1/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs (1 whole cracker, crumbled)

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 8Ă—8-inch pan with foil so it hangs over the edges a bit. Spray with nonstick spray. (You can use 9Ă—9-inch pan, but baking time might need slight decrease and your end result will be a thinner brownie).

2. Prepare crust: In a medium bowl, mix butter with crumbs, sugar and salt. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Prepare the brownie: Place butter and chocolate in microwave-safe bowl. Melt for 1 minute; stir. Melt another minute; stir. Keep microwaving at 1 minute intervals until mixture is completely melted. (Alternately, you can melt this mixture in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water on the stove). Add sugars, vanilla and salt into the melted chocolate and mix together. Add eggs and beat vigorously until you see a thick and glossy batter. Stir in flour and mix just until incorporated. Pour batter over the baked crust. Bake until top is set and toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, 35 to 40 minutes (you don’t want to overbake the brownie- a little gooey inside is good).

4. Remove pan from oven. Turn up heat on the oven to broil. Sprinkle chocolate chunks over the baked brownie. Add a nice, thick layer of marshmallows next. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top.

5. Place your pan of brownies back into the oven (they should be 6 to 8 inches away from the heating element). Toast under the broiler until golden- KEEP AN EYE ON IT- it can go from golden to burned in a matter of seconds. 1 to 2 minutes under the broiler should be plenty.

6. Cool for a few minutes, then use foil to remove brownies from the pan and set on a cutting board. Carefully pull the sides of the foil away from the marshmallows and brownies. Cut brownies into 12 squares. Helpful tip: Use a large, WET & SHARP KNIFE to cut the brownies. Slice through the brownie, then clean the knife and slice through again with a clean, wet knife. Keep cleaning off the knife after each cut for the cleanest cuts.
