S'more Brownie Bites
I love me some s'mores. I love me some brownies too. You mix the two together and you've got some pretty good eats! Since nothing ever tastes as good as the first bite or two, you can easily get the satisfaction of a decadent s'more without breaking the calorie bank.
Here's what you'll need
S'more Brownie Bites
1 box Ghirardelli's Double Chocolate Brownie Mix (I don't skimp yo)
2 1/4 tbsp Natural Blend Canola/Vegetable Oil
3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
9 sheets lowfat graham crackers
1/2 stick of butter
96 mini marshmallows
Mix up your brownie mix with the egg and water called for on the box and applesauce and oil ratio. (Trust me, if you use all applesauce, it'll be too dry. But this ratio is perfect for moistness and cutting back some fat/calories) Set the mix aside.
Grind up your graham crackers in a food processor or blender into fine crumbs.
Melt your butter in a microwave safe dish.
Add it to the graham cracker crumbs.
Mix them up until they're moist. (They shouldn't be wet)
Spray some cooking spray into a mini cupcake tin.
Using a teaspoon, measure out the graham crackers and place them in each cupcake tin.
Press them down like a pie crust in each tin.
Using a small tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the brownie batter into each tin.
Try not to slam your face into the tin and lick out each brownie batter hole of goodness.
Bake at 350 for 23-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let them cool for a minute or two then cover with a sheet of wax paper.
Place a cutting board over the top of the wax paper.
Flip it over and give it a little
Okay, that's not the best...
Have a cheese spreader or butter knife close by to gently wiggle out any stubborn ones.
Top with 2 mini marshmallows each and if you wanted to get extra fancy, you could totally use a lighter or match and torch the top of the mallows. No roasting required!
