Brownies and Bars/ Dessert/ Recipes

Triple Layer Mint S’more Brownies

I’ve made some bad decisions in my life.

Cutting my own bangs in fourth grade? bad decision.

Wearing a baby tee that said groovy past 1998? bad decision.

Hopping into a industrial sized steam kettle after a company Christmas party? very bad decision.

However, I’ve also made some good decisions. And I like to think that my best decision yet has been to bake these triple layer mint s’more brownies.

Imagine a thick, fudgy brownie with a chewy mint creme layer and a roasted marshmallow top.

It’s kinda ridiculous….as in probably the best brownie I’ve ever tasted in my entire life. Also, for the record—Adam says it’s the best thing I’ve ever baked.

And that there is saying something.

When I created these, I had s’mores on my mind. Then I got to thinking about brownies and how I don’t have a single brownie recipe on the blog.

There’s something a lot wrong with that.

And then, I start thinking about mint because I have a random bag of peppermint patties in my secret drawer. I’ll occasionally eat one or two when I’m bored and out of nutella.

So yeah….all that led to these triple layer mint s’more brownies and they’re really good. I highly recommend them for any and every chocolate craving.  And despite the whole “triple layer” bit, they’re incredibly simple to make.

Perfect, I think, cut into small brownie bites and arranged on Santa’s cookie plate. If Santa was a good boy this year, that is.

And the marshmallows on top?

Necessary definitely.

All you do is sprinkle them on after the brownies are finished baking and then stick under the broiler for a few minutes.

The hardest part is waiting for these suckers to cool.

Baking these is a really good decision.

Triple Layer Mint S’more Brownies

makes about 16

adapted from Martha Stewart

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup cocoa

4 oz butter

8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups mini marshmallows

25 mini peppermint patties

Preheat the oven to 350.

Melt the chocolate and butter together over very low heat on the stove. Remove and whisk in the eggs. Add the flour, cocoa, salt and sugar and mix well to combine.

Line a nine by thirteen inch baking pan with tin foil. Butter the foil (really butter it!) and then pour half of the brownie batter in the pan. Arrange peppermint patties over top and then spread the remaining batter over top, smoothing it out with a palate knife.

Bake for 45 minutes and then sprinkle marshmallows over the top. Broil for two to five more minutes, until the marshmallows are lightly browned and gooey.

Let cool for AT LEAST an HOUR before attempting to cut. And when you do cut, spray your knife with cooking spray or else the marshmallows will stick to it. Cutting these is tricky, yes, but the end result is very, very worth it. I used a combination of a knife and a scissors to cut. Don’t give up!

    Upon second thought, not to be overly critical… graham crackers are an integral part of s’mores. Otherwise, you’ve got a chocolate marshmallow concoction, which is also delicious, but does not taste like s’mores. You might want to rename this (but I can’t think of a clever name.)

    πŸ˜€ I’m going to blog about it tomorrow and link back to ya. You rock! Ps- it helped to slather butter on my knife before cutting. I didn’t have to use scissors, I just kind of peeled the foil away from the bottom and the tore the semi-cut brownies apart with my hands.

    Pps- unless I’ve gone mad, you don’t mention when to add the vanilla or cocoa powder, but I added the vanilla to the melted chocolate and the cocoa to the dry ingredients. They are probably the best thing I’ve ever made… and eaten.

        hmmm I admit I forgot to write when to add the cocoa (it’s fixed), but the baking time was correct and was also correct with about five others who made this. Ovens are different though and maybe you have a super hot one?

    I’v been trying to fight my chocolate craving all day, but these just pushed me over the edge. Only thing is, I want them NOW, and I don’t have the ingredients! Looks like I’m breaking into my secret B&J’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream stash pronto!

    I made these today…the house smelled amazing! I just have a question and maybe you can give me a few tips….
    I made these exactly how you wrote in the recipe…but mine came out very dry and not moist yummy brownies. πŸ™ Do I need to cook them less? Should I add more of something to make them gooey? Please help! I want to make another batch for tomorrow πŸ™‚
    Thanks!

    Made these last night for a friend’s birthday. I cooked them for 30 minutes because my oven runs hot. Burnt the marshmallows the first time, scraped them off and tried again. Peppermint patties exploded but hey who cares? They were a hit at the party.
    I loved them even though I’m not big on sweets or brownies anymore. My 10 year old self who used to eat jam out of the jar just cried by me writing that.

    I just made these last night – OMG! They are so good!!! I totally forgot (in my excited rush) to put the vanilla and salt in – whoops! And I used Andes Mints instead of peppermint patties. Amazing. I was thinking of giving the rest away to my husband to bring to work, but I think I’ll just have one a day, if I can control myself around them. Thanks for this awesome recipe Jenna!

    I’m making these right now, and having a sort of scary mint-melting moment going on? The mint patties have completely melted and are bubbling up through the brownie batter, and the whole thing isn’t really solidifying at all…help!!!

        oh man, how embarrassing!! I just double-checked this morning and realized that it’s because I was trying to double the recipe but didn’t double anything except for the butter and sugar! duh!

    I tried these last night because, after reading the recipe, I couldn’t WAIT! I have one word of advice about adding the marshmallows on top. If you’re an idiot like me, DON’T put them in the broiler on high and close the oven door! My marshmallows CAUGHT ON FIRE and I had to scrape the entire top of charcoal black marshmallows off the top and start over! I should have known – high heat + marshmallows = fire, hahah. The 2nd time I did it I made sure to put the broiler on low and keep the door open a crack. Anyway – they were absolutely delicious and I love the addition of the peppermint patties.

    I just made this and I just pulled it out of the oven. Just realized that I didn’t put vanilla extract in it, because the directions didn’t tell me to. I felt funny.. and realized that part was left out! Oops. Hope it’s still good in an hour! It SMELLS good!
