S’mores Brownie is a dessert made up of two classic favorites combined; brownies and s’mores. It is a hybrid type of dessert where the classic and flavors of both elements are retained. This type of dessert typically consists of a brownie base that is topped with a layer of marshmallows before it is baked in an oven. Upon coming out of the oven, the top layer of marshmallows will be toasted and oozy. Usually, graham crackers will be crumbled over the marshmallow-topped brownie and melted chocolate is often drizzled on top of the entire creation.
