I'm working on perfecting the ultimate Lemon Drop Martini, while sitting out on our front porch, looking out at the river. The weather is great, (not too hot), and the nights cool down to about 50 degrees. I know we won't have any problems staying here for longer lengths of time, once Craig decides to stop driving truck. We really couldn't have picked a more perfect place to call home.
I've been asked to post the recipe for the S'more Brownies, and seriously?...... they couldn't be easier to make. But keep it your little secret when you take them to your next pot luck, because they really are the best thing that ever happened to a brownie!
1 package brownie mix (you need the 9 x 13 size and I prefer the Betty Crocker one) plus the ingredients listed on the box to make the brownies
3 (1.55 oz) Hershey’s milk chocolate bars
4 graham crackers (full size, you know as big as the Hershey bar)
1 (7 oz.) jar of Marshmallow Creme/Fluff
Mix up your brownie mix according to package direction and pour mix into a 9 x 13 pan. The Betty Crocker one says to put it in the 9 x 13 pan with the bottom sprayed with cooking spray. (the next batch I make, I'm going to line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper to make it easier to cut and remove the brownies).Then bake according to the package directions. When done, let cool for 5 minutes. Then drop spoonfuls of the marshmallow creme/fluff down the center of the pan of brownies. Then let sit for a few minutes. The warm brownies will help the marshmallow spread out over the top of the brownies. You can gently use a knife to help it go to the corners if needed. Then chop up your graham crackers and chocolate and sprinkle on top of the marshmallow layer. Allow to cool and enjoy!
I found the longer you can make yourself wait before cutting into the brownies, the easier they are to remove, but hey, I wasn't complaining about eating the crumbled warm ones I tried to remove shortly after they were done. Someone has to make those sacrifices in a relationship.
