Churro S’more Brownies

As a death row inmate, my last meal would most certainly include my mom’s meatloaf sandwich, loaded fries, and those cheap gooey brownies you make from a box mix.

I know kind of morbid, but we have all contemplated it or discussed our last meal with our friends.

I am not afraid to admit (even though I can be a food snob at times) that I absolutely love those cheap and easy box mix brownies. You are lying to yourself if you do not agree. The reason is simple: they come out perfectly soft and chocolaty every single time.

So why not take oozy, fudgy brownies up a notch? This recipe came about rather seamlessly; in fact I had been thinking about creating the dessert for sometime. I purchased some churro marshmallows to snack on, and quite honestly they tasted horrible on their own. As to not waste them (or my money) I decided to repurpose them.

You can buy them here. You can also make your own by coating plain marshmallows in butter and a cinnamon sugar mixture.

This recipe is a take on those classic fudgy brownies, but with a graham crust, Mexican chocolate, and charred churro marshmallows on the top.

Mexican Chocolate & Churro Marshmallow S’more Brownies 

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Graham Flour
  • 1/4 Cup of AP Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons of Butter, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons of Molasses
  • 2 Tablespoons of Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

Directions:

  1. Prepare a 9 inch square baking pan by lining it with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. In your stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together.
  4. While that mixes, combine your dry ingredients into a small bowl. Mix together.
  5. Slowly mix in your dry mix, alternating with the remaining wet ingredients. Mix until all of the ingredients are fully combined.
  6. Press down mixture into your prepared baking dish to create one even layer of crust.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from oven and set aside.

Brownie Ingredients:

  • 1 Bag of Churro Marshmallows, cut in half length wise
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 2.7 Ounces of Mexican Chocolate, Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 Cup of AP Flour

Directions:

  1. In a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and Mexican chocolate. Mix to combine.
  2. Slowly add in each egg, mixing until fully combined.
  3. Last mix in your vegetable oil.
  4. Pour over graham crust. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Once baked, remove from oven and place marshmallows on the top of the brownies in a single layer, cinnamon side down. You want the cut side to be facing up. The residual heat from baking will cause the marshmallows to stick.
  6. Once the brownies have cooled and before serving, torch the marshmallow top with a baking torch. If you do not have one you can use your oven on broil.
  7. Slice and serve.
