The proper way to toast a marshmallow will always be an ongoing American debate. I never understood the patient people that could hold their marshmallow in one spot over a camp fire, turning carefully, until perfectly golden brown. I was that Girl Scout lighting her marshmallow on fire for instant gratification. I love the taste of the charcoal exterior with the hint of lighter fluid. I figured most people prefer their dessert to not give them cancer, so I was gracious enough to make this s’more brownie with a light golden crisp.
These s’more brownies is everything you would expect with a s’mores dessert plus some. You have the crispy graham cracker bottom, gooey chocolate brownie and the perfectly browned marshmallow top. Good luck at letting these last on your counter for more than

Originally published in the Tramping and Training with the Girl Scouts Magazine as a dessert called “Some More” . It is toasted marshmallows over a campfire sandwiched between 2 graham crackers and a piece of Hersheys chocolate. I can see where the name came from! Who wouldn’t want more?
