S’mores Skillet Brownies
S’mores Skillet Brownies have a graham cracker crust topped with a layer of fudgy brownies and perfectly roasted marshmallows. Loaded with ooey-gooey goodness, what’s not to love?
We just returned home from a road trip to Connecticut to visit Eric’s family. And let me tell you, I was all kinds of apprehensive about cruising across a few states with a toddler.
Thanks to countless episodes of Doc McStuffins and a box of fruit snacks, I’m happy to report we all survived the road trip. In fact, I’ll even admit that it was kind of fun, but man, did I learn that Pennsylvania is pretty much the longest state ever and their 2-lane highway structure is for the birds.
Although our trip was only a few days long, we managed to pack in loads of family time which included swimming, Elle chasing after her cousin’s chickens, and her first experience at a bonfire, complete with fireworks and s’mores. Elle loves s’mores, but let’s just say a roaring fire isn’t on her top 5 favorite things list. Toddler anxiety is a thing, you guys.
When we got home, I was craving s’mores (let’s face it, this has been an on-going thing since I was pregnant with Elle), so I decided to whip up a batch of S’mores Skillet Brownies. I’m kind of a sucker for anything baked in cast iron skillets, especially if they happen to be mini skillets.
I created a buttery graham cracker crust layer, followed up with a layer of brownie batter. Then I topped everything off with roasted Campfire® Marshmallows and a drizzle of salted caramel syrup to create one heck of a dessert.
And I’m going to let you in on a little secret, I totally used my favorite boxed brownie mix for this recipe. But if you’re not into going the boxed route, just substitute in your favorite from-scratch recipe. I promise whichever route you take, you’ll be in love with these S’mores Skillet Brownies as much as I am.
Campfire®’s Giant Roasters would be great in this recipe, but pretty much any of their regular marshmallows are going to work here. Go with the Giant Roasters for a wow factor, or the minis for a prettier speckled look with lots of variation in how toasty the marshmallows get.
