Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker, crushed
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch fine salt
1 stick unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
4 large cold eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups large marshmallows
Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8x8" baking pan with foil so it hangs over the edges by about 1 inch.
For the crust: Lightly butter the foil with some of the melted butter. Stir the rest of the butter together with the crumbs, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the brownie. Put the butter and chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on 75 percent power for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave again until completely melted. About 2 minutes more. Alternatively, put the butter and chocolate in a heatproff bowl. Bring a saucepan filled with 1 inch or so of water to a very slow simmer; set the bowl on the pan without touching the water. Stir occasionally until melted. Stir the light brown and white sugars, vanilla an dsalt into the melted chocolate. Add the eggs and beat vigorously to make a thick and glossy batter. Add the flour and stir until just incorporated.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top is crispy and toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs, about 40-45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and carefully position a rack about 6 inches from the broiler and preheat on low. Layer marshmallows across the top and toast under the broiler until golden (keep an eye on it, it can go quick), about 2 minutes. Cool ona rack, gently removing the brownies from the pan using the aluminum flaps. Carefully separate any marshmallow from the foil and fold away. Cut into 12 (2") squares.
