How to Make Fudgy Brownies

Prep Work: Preheat your oven and prepare an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and non-stick cooking spray. Do not skip over this step, you want to be able to easily lift the brownies out of the tin.

Melt Butter and Sugar: In a saucepan heat the two over high heat and boil for 3-4 minutes. Don’t worry if the mixture looks crystallized, this is what gives brownies the shiny crackle layer after they are baked.

Whisk and Fold: In a large bowl whip the eggs, unsweetened cocoa powder, black cocoa powder, and vanilla extract until light and well incorporated. Next, slowly add the warm butter/sugar mixture, whisking continually until incorporated. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and fold together until fully combined.

Bake, Cool, and Cut: Smooth the batter into your baking dish and bake for 25 to 28 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool to room temperature before lifting them from the pan and cutting into 12 equal squares.

How to Construct Campfire Brownie Smores

  1. Make or find a campfire and toast the marshmallows to your liking.
  2. Construct your smores: Layer graham cracker, brownie, roasted marshmallows and more graham cracker.
  3. Eat!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I use a boxed brownie instead?

Of course! Whatever works for you and your family, just as long as you have a fun time making the Campfire Brownie Smores.

I do not have black cocoa, what should I do?

Easily substitute the black cocoa for more unsweetened cocoa powder. You would want to use a total of 2/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder if this is the case.

How can I toast my marshmallows inside?

I recommend using either a kitchen torch (I did in this video) or the oven broiler to toast your marshmallows. This is a great reference if you want to use your broiler.
