What exactly are Brookie S’mores Bars? Brookie S’mores Bars are a combination of soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies and rich and fudgy brownies sandwiched in between crushed digestive biscuits (Graham Crackers) and a layer of toasted marshmallows.
As I have mentioned time and time again. I LOVE S’mores. Anything s’mores related and I’m there! How could you not? Crisp digestive biscuits with melting chocolate and sweet, roasted marshmallows… Turn these into Brookie S’mores Bars and you have a WINNER!
Out of all the s’mores recipes I have made (remember the S’mores Fudge Pie and the White Chocolate S’mores Bars?) the Brookie S’mores Bars may just be my favourite. I am partial to the chocolate chip cookie and brownie flavour combination. Again, I’m a sucker for brownies.
To make these Brookie S’mores Bars you need to make a simple crushed digestive biscuit (Graham Cracker) and melted butter base. Make a simple chocolate chip cookie dough (I adapted my cookie pie recipe) and a one bowl fudgy brownie. This is recipe is all about layers so we begin with the crushed biscuit layer then the cookie layer, followed by the brownie layer.
I made this in an 8″x8′ pan so the bars were nice and high not flat. You could use a 9″x9″ pan if you prefer but just bare in mind your Brookie S’mores will be a little flatter and may not need as long of a cooking time.
As these bars take a while to bake, we don’t add the marshmallow layer until halfway through the baking process. This is to ensure toasted, melty marshmallows not hard and burnt marshmallows.
It’s officially December. Officially Summer, 8 days until my birthday, The Countdown is on for Christmas and 30 days until 2018!! Seriously this year has just flown by and I am in no way prepared for my Birthday, Christmas or the New Year! Ekk. Please tell me I’m not the only one having a slight end-of-year crisis?
Brookie S'mores Bars are a combination of soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies and rich and fudgy brownies sandwiched in between crushed digestive biscuits (Graham Crackers) and a layer of toasted marshmallows.
- 125 g Digestive Biscuits or Graham Crackers Crushed
- 60 g Butter Melted
- 100 g Butter Partially Melted
- 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1 Cup and 2 Tbsp Flour
- 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
- 5 Marshmllows Chopped
- 1/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
- 100 g Dark Chocolate
- 80 g Butter
- 1 Large Egg
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 3/4 Cup Flour
- 16-20 Marshmallows
Line an 8"x8" baking pan with baking paper and preheat the oven to 160°C (325°F).
Melt the butter and mix with the crushed digestive biscuits.
Press into the base of the prepared pan and place in the fridge while you make the cookie layer.
Beat the super soft or partially melted butter, brown sugar and sugar together.
Beat in the egg and vanilla essence
Mix in the flour, baking powder and chocolate chips.
Spread over the crushed biscuit base in an even layer and sprinkle over the 1/3 cup of chocolate chips and chopped marshmallows.
Melt the butter and chocolate together.
Pour the mixture over the partially baked peanut butter layer.
Beat the egg, sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.
Mix the chocolate mixture through the eggs.
Mix in the cocoa, followed by the flour.
Pour the mixture over the cookie layer and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove from the oven top with the 16 or 20 marshmallows and place back in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes.
The marshmallows should be lightly golden and the middle will only slightly wobble but the sides should be set.
Allow to cool completely for nice clean pieces otherwise dig in with a spoon!
Hot Fudge Cheesecake Brownies are rich and fudgy chocolate brownies with a hot fudge cheesecake running through the centre. Once you have hot fudge cheesecake running through your brownies you will never go back!
Remember my Salted Caramel Cheesecake Brownies? The hot fudge cheesecake brownies are based on the same recipe just using hot fudge sauce in place of salted caramel. This creates a completely different flavoured cheesecake which, in turn, creates a completely different flavoured brownie.
How can you make popsicles better? By making the popsicle a brownie, dipping them in white chocolate and covering them in sprinkles! Brownie Pops – as I like to call them – are far superior to regular popsicles.
The brownie recipe I chose to use for these pops is my brownie pie recipe as the brownies – although fudgy and chewy – are more stable and hold their shape really well. This is important as the brownies need to be able to hold up on the lollipop or popsicle stick and not fall off, crumble or slide down the stick.
Flourless brownies, for example, would NOT be suitable for this recipe!
I can see it now…. BREAKING NEWS: BROWNIES BARE ALL, THE INSIDE SCOOP!
I was going to call these bare arsed brownies but decided that sounded extremely rude so I went for bare bottomed. Just for a little fun. These Bare Bottomed Flourless Brownies are a thick, fudgy and gooey flourless chocolate brownie baked on top of a layer of white chocolate. (For those of you who don’t get it, they’re bare bottomed because of the layer of white chocolate without any brownie batter on the base. Apologies for the bad joke… :/)
We get a lovely contract between the dark, rich brownies (made all the more richer with the lack of flour) and the light, sweet white chocolate. As the white chocolate buttons don’t get mixed into the brownie batter, the white chocolate remains a solid layer on its own. Hence the bare bottom… Get it? Tehe.
