Although the first day of Summer is officially June 21st, we already want eats that are most enjoyed during the fiery temperatures of our warmest season.

These s’mores Brownies may not be cooked over the blaze of an outdoor fire, but they still evoke fun memories of vacations past, and are every bit as delicious as those that are heated to gooey perfection over the coals.

Inside Out S’mores Brownies

1 cup butter

4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

9 honey graham cracker squares

1 cup small marshmallows

Heat oven to 350F.

Line a 11 by 7 inch baking pan with parchment paper, lightly grease.

In a medium saucepan melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla until combined. Stir in flour.

Spread half the batter in the prepared pan. Top with graham crackers, sprinkle with marshmallows (dont let them touch the sides of the pan).

Carefully spread the remaining batter on the marshmallows and graham crackers, covering them completely.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until set.

Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
