A Summer Treat That Beats the Heat

no-bake s'more fun recipe from fat witch brownies!

The Fat Witch is back and tastier than ever. Celebrate the end of summer with this recipe from her new cookbook. Best part: no need to turn on the oven.

No-Bake S’More Fun Brownies
Makes twelve to sixteen

2¼ c. crushed graham crackers (10-11 crackers)
1½ c. miniature marshmallows
¾ c. milk chocolate chips
1 stick unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing a pan or skillet
¾ c. granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1. Grease a 9-inch-by-9-inch baking pan or skillet with butter. Dust with flour and tap out the excess.

2. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, ¾ cup of the marshmallows, and ½ cup of the chocolate chips together in a bowl and set aside.

3. Over low heat, in a saucepan or skillet, melt the butter with the sugar, egg, and vanilla, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.

4. Add the cooled sugar mixture to the bowl and stir well, allowing the marshmallows and chips to melt. Fold in the remaining marshmallows and chips.

5. Press the mixture into the pan and cool for 30 minutes.

6. Cut and don’t be too smug about your magic.
