Delicious Brownie Schmoes
I cannot help but call these Schmoes because of the scene in Toy Story that Buzz Lightyear is talking about Andy going to camp and they would be making Schmoes, when he meant S’mores. I got this recipe years ago, from a magazine, can’t even remember what one. Maybe Good Housekeeping? but it’s stuck with me throughout the years. Once in a while I make it and it takes me back to summer nights, when we have bonfires, sitting around in the dark, watching the embers glow, talking, laughing, and peering out into the dark to see fireworks over our back tree line. We’ll pull out the long campfire forks and toast some hotdogs and marshmallows. Delicious brownie schmoes. Yum yum.
Not a difficult recipe to create, but you can make it a different way, instead of using Chocolate Chips, you can create this with Hershey Chocolate bars. Our family prefers darker chocolate over milk, but milk chocolate would be a more traditional way to make these. So keep that in mind, depending on supplies at hand and your personal tastes.
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup crushed graham crackers
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup chocolate chips, or 3 whole regular chocolate bars
1 7oz jar marshmallow fluff or creme.
( my photos feature a double batch)
For the graham cracker crumbs. I use one packet, put them into a Ziploc and crush them with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer. I always get the minions to help with this. They love transforming into crumbs. Any left over crumbs go into a baggie and make a lovely topping for ice cream or yogurt.
Cream sugar and butter together.
Add in vanilla.
Add in egg.
Add in graham crackers.
Add in flour, baking powder and salt.
Once the dough is mixed well. Spray an 8×8 pan with cooking spray.
Take about 3/4 of your dough out of your mixing bowl (I eyeball this) and put it into your pan. Press dough into pan (my pan is actually 9×13 for my double batch).
Top dough with marshmallow creme. I used a whole container of Fluff for my double batch.
Top Fluff with chocolate chips (or candy bars).
Now take your remaining dough and pat small pieces of it into ‘pancakes’ and place on top of chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until golden brown. Cut and eat!
