Molten S'more Brownies

Heaven.....absolute....drenched in melted fudge and marshmallow....heaven. You don't have to heat the brownie to get the delightful pool of melted fudge and marshmallow, but then I would have to give you the hairy eyeball if you don't. ;) Honestly you have to love a dessert that tempts you to lick the plate....only when no one else is in the room of course....and then deny you would ever do such a thing. Never you mind how that smudge of chocolate got on my forehead!

This dessert makes me think a MoonPie, brownie, and s'more had a rumble and this was the end result. I so will be making this again. I wants it!

Molten S'more Brownies

Brownie Layer:
1/2 cup tub margarine
2 squares (2 oz) unsweetened chocolate
1 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla

Melt margarine and chocolate together in the microwave. Stir often and be careful not to overheat. Add in sugar and vanilla Beat the eggs lightly in a small bowl before adding them to the chocolate mixture. Stir in flour. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to overbake. Cool.

Fudge Filling/Sauce:
14oz non fat sweetened condensed milk
6 oz milk chocolate chips
6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
8 large marshmallows
1/4 cup non fat evaporated milk

Mix together the sweetened condensed milk, milk chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips, and vanilla. Microwave mixture at 30 second intervals, stirring after each one until the chocolate is smooth. Let the mixture cool. You can pop the fudge into the fridge if you are in a hurry.

Meanwhile, cut your cooled brownies into 16 squares. Cut each square in half, making two layers. Cut the marshmallows in half and flatten them. Put a flattened marshmallow in the center of each bottom brownie layer.

Spoon some cooled fudge into a ziplock bag (a pastry bag would be fine) and cut off a corner to make a good sized opening. Squeeze fudge around the crushed marshmallows...you want a fairly even center layer flush to the edge of the brownie. Put the top layer of the brownie over the marshmallow/fudge layer and press lightly.

Take the remaining fudge...you may need to reheat it slightly if it's become too thick....and stir in the evaporated milk to thin it to more of a glaze. (You can also use regular milk.) Add extra milk if needed. Pour the thinned fudge over the brownies, making sure to drizzle the chocolate down the sides. You can scoop up the extra chocolate that pools around the brownies and spread it along the sides. Chill brownies until ready to serve.

To get the lovely molten effect....microwave your brownie for 10 to 20 seconds before noshing.

A few more pics of the glory...
A look at a finished brownie before I popped it into the microwave to heat. You could eat it now of course......but how can you resist melted, gooey chocolate and marshmallow?

Taste testing in the name of quality control! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;) It was tough to get a good picture of the marshmallow oozing out....probably due to the fact I was busy noshing at the time ehehehe.
