A sweet graham cracker crust filled with a gooey browned butter blondie and topped with melty Hershey bars and roasty toasty marshmallows.
S’mores. Ohhh, my beloved S’mores. I have a billion recipes here on this little old blog with all kinds of different s’mores variations because I just can’t. get. enough. I’ve got milkshakes, ice cream, truffles, fudge, pie, brownies.. you get the picture. They are my favorite part of Summer and are what I look forward to most. There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING better than sitting outside by a cozy fire on a cool Summer night roasting marshmallows. These Toasted S’mores Blondies are the next best thing! Or possibly even better?
These bars start with my favorite graham cracker crust and the most perfect gooey blondies on top of that. The graham cracker crust is nice and sweet with the addition of brown sugar. The blondies are my favorite part because they contain a special ingredient. Well, not exactly a special ingredient so to say, but a basic ingredient is prepared in a special way. What is it, you ask? Browned butter! You might not think browning your butter makes that much of a difference but it totally does. To brown your butter you just melt butter on medium heat in a small saucepan and swirl it around until it turns brown. Easy peasy. Mixing up the blondies after the butter is browned is a piece of cake.
After the blondies and graham cracker crust are baked, they are taken out of the oven and immediately topped with Hershey bars and large marshmallow halves on top of that. Place the glorious pan back into your oven set to broil and toast those marshmallows up to perfection. Be sure to keep a close eye on this process because once they start to brown slightly it goes VERY fast and they’ll burn in seconds. Aaaaahhhh, my favorite part: the smell of toasted marshmallows.
Be prepared for the flavor explosion that happens in your mouth. They are crazy addicting, so don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
