    For the graham cracker crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 10 tbs. melted unsalted butter
  • For the brownies:
  • 6 tbs. unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 baking dish with foil leaving some extra hanging off the sides. Lightly grease or spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. To prepare the graham cracker crust, melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Mix in the graham cracker crumbs and the sugar with the melted butter. Spread the mixture into the bottom of the baking dish, pressing down to create a crust in an even layer. Bake the crust for about 15 minutes or until golden. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside.
  3. While the crust is baking, prepare the brownie batter. Prepare a double boiler by placing a pot filled about half way with water on medium high heat. Place a glass bowl over the pot. Melt the butter and the chocolate together, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and let cool for a couple of minutes.
  4. Beat in the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour and cocoa powder. Pour the brownie batter on top of the graham cracker crust. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean.
  5. Switch the oven to broil. Pour the marshmallows over the brownies, arranging in an even layer. Place the pan into the oven and by watching very closely, broil until the marshmallows just begin to char. I highly recommend standing near the oven while you do this to ensure that the marshmallows do not burn, checking every 45 seconds or so.
  6. Remove from the oven and let the brownies cool completely. To remove, gently lift using the extra foil. Pull the foil away and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container.
