Jonny's S'mores

On Saturday Jonny and I were trying to decide what to do and I was talking about s'more cupcakes that I had been wanting to try and then Jonny had a great idea... S'mores brownies! So I suggested that we go ahead and make them. I'm always looking for an excuse to bake/cook. We just made it up as we went and it turned out amazing! (I can say that because Jonny did most of the baking.)

What you'll need:
  1. One 13 oz. jar of Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme
  2. One 2.3 oz. box of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies brownie mix
  3. 2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
  4. Two eggs
  5. One 14.4 oz. box of Honey Maid Honey Graham Crackers (3 plastic packages)
  6. Six tablespoons of butter
  7. 1/3 Cup of Sugar

We started with a graham cracker crust. Crust Ingredients: 1/3 cup of sugar, 6 T melted butter and 1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker (about 1 1/2 of the Honey Maid Graham Crackers plastic packages.)
Mix the sugar and ground graham crackers together, then add the melted butter (it's easier to mix the dry ingredients first).
Press the mixture firmly into a 9x13 pan. You can put parchment paper on the bottom of the pan to make removal easier, but it's not necessary.

Bake the crust for 7 mins at 350.
While the crust is baking, prepare brownie batter according to the instructions on the box.
Once the crust is done pour the brownie batter over the graham cracker crust and bake it according to the time and heat instructions on the brownie box.

Now comes the hard part. Let the brownies cool slightly, then spread about 1/2 to 2/3 of the marshmallow creme over the *warm* brownies. You still want the brownies to be slightly warm so the marshmallow creme will soften and spread easier.

Then, crumble more graham crackers (another 1 1/2 plastic packages) until you have cracker pieces that are roughly the size of a penny. Then, evenly spread the cracker pieces over the entire surface until thoroughly covered (may not use all of the crumbled pieces). You may need to press the pieces into the marshmallow creme a little bit, otherwise they may not stick.
Then cut, eat, and enjoy.
