Last week it was cold. I'm not talking a two degree difference, they were calling it a polar vortex, in the summer. It would drop to almost 10 degrees every night! It really started to feel like fall, I even wore sweaters for a few days. I wasn't in the summer "mood" at all.
Suddenly bam, it's summer again. I'm sweltering over here. And we don't have the air conditioning on just to add to the heat.
I guess this is what it feels like to be made into a brownie. For example, you are a pound of butter, you're chilling in the fridge then bam, you feel the heat. I mean technically when us humans are being being baked we won't exactly taste great after, sweaty and all... and probably dead.
Makes one 8"x8" pan
2 1/2 cups a.p flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs, coarse
1 cup marshmallow fluff
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 8"x8" pan. In a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl beat the butter, vanilla and sugars. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the flour bit by bit. Stir in the last of it by hand and add the chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs. Spread about 2/3 of the batter into the bottom of the pan. Spread the marshmallow fluff on top. Now use the rest of the batter and pat it down on top of the marshmallow fluff. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool and then cut into squares. Enjoy!
Hopefully it's not too hot where you are or not too cold. In any case I hope you are handling your strange weather. Oh, and make these brownies, because s'mores.
