S’mores Brownies For Eggland’s Best Holiday Dessert Recipe Exchange {Giveaway}

DSC06881the concept

Eggland’s Best (EB) recently invited recipe bloggers to participate in their 2013 Eggland’s Best Holiday Dessert Recipe Exchange.  Each participant was to create an original dessert recipe, or re-imagine one of their favorite family desserts, using at least two whole EB eggs.

Chosen recipes will be featured on a special EB Holiday Recipe Exchange Pinterest board, as well as EB’s website and social media channels.

Bloggers were provided with a coupon for EB eggs and a gift pack (EB branded apron, whisk, spatula, ceramic bowl, bowl scraper, tote bag and a plush egg) to get them started.

DSC06787The Pinterest board hasn’t gone live yet, but here some of the ways you can currently connect with EB via social media –

S’mores Brownies

Yield: 12 brownies; Prep Time: 25 minutes; Cook Time: 35 minutes

crust ingredients

  • 22 sheets graham crackers (4 rectangles = 1 sheet)
  • 8 Tbsp salted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

brownie ingredients

  • 2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 6 Tbsp salted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large EB eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2.5 cups mini marshmallows  (I used peppermint swirl marshmallows!)

instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place graham crackers in a large freezer baggie and bang at them like crazy with a rolling-pin or sturdy plastic cup.  A few chunks are ok, but overall you want crumbs.  Add 1/4 cup sugar to the bag and shake to combine.
  3. Place 8 Tbsp butter in an 8×8 inch baking dish.  Microwave until completely melted.
  4. Pour graham cracker crumbs into melted butter and stir until all of the crumbs are wet.  Press the mixture into the bottom of the baking dish with a fork.  Set aside.
  5. Place baking chocolate and 6 Tbsp butter in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted.
  6. Stir 1 cup sugar into chocolate-butter mixture.  Set aside and allow bowl to cool for 3-5 minutes so you don’t’ scramble your eggs.
  7. Stir eggs and vanilla extract in melted chocolate.
  8. Fold flour into batter.  Then fold in chocolate chips.
  9. Carefully pour batter over graham cracker crust, using a spatula to spread to the edges of the pan.
  10. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes.  You want the brownies to be cooked through before you add the marshmallows so check the doneness with a toothpick at 25 minutes and continue accordingly.  Evenly spread marshmallows on top of brownies and bake an additional 10 minutes.
  11. Allow brownies to cool completely before cutting into squares.  Store in the fridge but serve warmed or at room temperature.

  1. I would love some free eggs! (Life of a college kid…) missed you on our trip and can’t wait to (hopefully!) see you soon! Lots of love Emmy!

    • It’s funny that you say that because I actually gave the egg to Webster and it was his favorite toy for a little bit. It actually survived a day or too!
