I can look positively back on my time spent on MapleStory. Who would have guessed that this cute little game would be my first steps into the large world of massively multiplayer games? I did enjoy my time playing it and I thank the game for all the other games I played because of it. I decided it was time to take a recipe from the game. With Halloween come up this week, I looked at a few of the more spooky areas of the game. There is a haunted house in the game where you can find an NPC named Steward who will send you out to collect tombstones from the rotting skeletons and nightmares. After you have gathered enough you have to find Jonas who will reward you with some s’mores. When I saw the s’mores in game I had to make them. The first time I tried, I made something closer to a s’more fudge bar but wasn’t happy with the end result. I decided to take a softer approach and went with a s’more brownie bar. These things are delicious and I need to make more, but eating a ton of these would probably be a terrible idea.
Required Equipment: spring-form pan, bowls, hand mixer, sauce pan, wire rack, food processor
– 1 ½ cups graham cracker
– 5 tbsp melted butter
– 2 tbsp sugar
– 8 tbsp butter
– 10 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
– ¾ cup sugar
– ½ cup brown sugar
– 3 eggs
– 2 tsp vanilla extract
– pinch salt
– ¾ cup flour
– 1/3 cup cocoa powder
– mini marshmallows
– chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a food processor, pulse the graham crackers until they are a fine crumble. Add the melted butter and sugar and pulse until well blended together. Place the crust in a spring-form pan while making sure it is smooth. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
While the crust is baking, begin making the brownies by melting the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, add the chocolate and melt.
Once the chocolate has melted, remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in the sugar and the brown sugar. Allow this mixture to cool.
In a small bowl combine the flour, salt and cocoa powder. Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, add the eggs and vanilla extract. Finally mix in the flour mixture.
Pour the batter on top of the cooked crust. Place the pan back in the oven (same temperature) and bake for 30-40 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
After the brownie has baked, sprinkle some chocolate chips over the top.
Finally add the marshmallows. One important note, in the pictures I used large marshmallows. I would recommend using mini marshmallows instead. I find the end result to be less sticky with the mini marshmallow. Turn your oven on to broiler and place the pan directly under it. Keep an eye on this because the marshmallows will toast up quickly.
