This baked good is a new landmark, because it’s the first one that I made the recipe myself! Well sort of. It was a few recipes put together to make this one, and needs some tweaking but…I did it all with my noggin instead of just following a recipe verbatim, so woo!
A while ago I got the idea to make a smore pie. Took me a while to figure out how to do it, but after brain storming I figured I’d do it this way: Get a gram cracker crust, use my brownie recipe, bake it then melt marshmellow and put it on top after baking. It tastes delicious, but a few things need to be fixed to be a bit easier. The main thing is, when to use the marshmellows. Like I melted them fine but trying to get them on the top of the brownie before it solidified back into being super sticky was a feat all it’s own. Had to use a lot of marshmellows too, but it worked! It also majorly got stuck to my hands while trying to get it on, a major pain 😄 I think next time I’m going to try using marshmellow fluff, or maybe making marshmellow flavored ganache or meringue. I’m torn about using the crust, as well: my brother likes it, my Mom and I are iffy on it. I can’t really taste it to be perfectly honest, and my Mom came up with the idea to crumble the crackers on top of the brownie instead of using a crust, which I actually like. I think that way, I could actually taste the gram crackers with the marshmellow, and the chocolate would be easier to taste too. But overall this first go was a good success: I like the texture of everything, just have to stream line the process a bit more.
Not sure when I want to try it again, because I’m not really a huge smore eater. It was just an idea I really wanted to try before going to something else, so glad it worked!
