Red Velvet S'mores Brownies

It's my cousin Daniel's birthday party and I wanted to make him something special. Normally I would have made a cake, but no doubt there they've already organised one. Brownie's are so good for a party, especially when there's a buffet, as you can make tons. I stumbled across the recipe for Red Velvet S'more Brownies that I had saved on my computer for a rainy day. That day is today. The recipe is from Sugar Crafter.


Ingredients 


Graham crust:
1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbsp unsalted butter

Brownies:
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt3 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 Tbsp red food coloring
2/3 cups chocolate chips

Topping:
1 cup marshmallow fluff
35 jumbo marshmallows


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine melted butter and graham crumbs, then press into a greased 8×8″ pan.

In a small bowl, combine cocoa powder, red food coloring, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to create a paste. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then add remaining teaspoon of vanilla. With the mixer on medium speed, add in cocoa powder mixture. Beat until batter is completely red. (If at this time your batter is NOT red, you can add a little more food coloring if desired. Color will depend on brand.) Add flour and salt, mixing until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.



Gently spread batter on top of graham cracker crumbs. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until brownies are almost set. Remove from oven.

Spread marshmallow fluff on brownies then top with jumbo marshmallows.



Heat your broiler and place underneath for 15-20 seconds, or until marshmallows are golden. I used a lighter to heat up each individual marshmallow, which takes more time and isn't as effective, but I didn't know what a broiler was...


Let cool completely before serving. The fluff will harden up which is amazing!



My brownies turned out nothing like the original picture. I clearly didn't put enough red food colouring in, as the brownie was pink. I also made the layer of graham cracker crust too big, but I LOVE graham cracker crust so I'm not really sorry about that. Don't worry if yours doesn't look like the picture - if you follow the instructions right then it WILL taste incredible.


It was gone long before the end of the night. SUCCESS!
