GSSJC's Unconventional S'mores

Summer is a Girl Scout’s favorite time to be outdoors with friends spending the sweltering Texas days swimming in a cool, blue pool and spending nights around a crackling campfire, singing songs and roasting marshmallows for s’mores.

Of course, there’s more than one way to make a delicious s’mores treat! Whether you and your troop are getting together for a little summer fun or you want to keep your Girl Scout fun going after spending a week at camp, here’s a fun, unconventional s’more recipe for you to try!

  6. Pour into dish, spreading evenly and top with marshmallows.
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean, 30-35 minutes. Cool and cut into gooey squares.

Using jumbo marshmallows may increase baking time or create gooey brownies. If you like this, great! If not, opt for regular size marshmallows.
