|Peanut Butter Cup S'more Brownies|
Recipes that include the words peanut butter cup, however, always win. I recently heard of this really cool party idea - a S'mores Bar. Instantly I decided that it is what we must do for the little Bell who is turning 6 next month. Then I realized that camp fires and children hyped up and making their own s'mores in my backyard was really only a great idea in theory. You see? I am learning.
Also I have no say in the birthday party themes around here. We tend to have a lot of Lightning McQueen and various forms of trucks. This year, we've had a request for an ambulance theme which I have drawn the line at. There is no way to make an ambulance party seem not weird. Of course the camp out/s'more party idea gone wrong could include an ambulance but I don't think that's what anyone had in mind.
Peanut Butter Cup S'more Brownies
Recipe by Michelle's Dinner Bell
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
6 tbs butter, melted
Brownie mix and ingredients called for on package (I like Ghiradelli Double Chocolate)
12 peanut butter cups
24 large marshmallows
- Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter and mix. In silicone muffin mold or paper lined muffin tray, pack an equal amount of mixture in bottom of each well - about 3-4 tablespoons per well.
- Place a peanut butter cup and a marshmallow on top of that.
- Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and pour into mold until each is about 3/4 full.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until done being careful not to overbake.
- When brownies are cool, remove them from the molds.
- The marshmallow topping is easiest with a creme brulle torch. But if you don't have one, you can just toast a marshmallow over your gas flame, cut it in half and press onto top of cupcake. You could also do it in the broiler.
