S'mores Stuffed Brownies

Ummm...YUM!  Run, don't walk, to the kitchen to make these!


1 box of your favorite brownie mix
4 1/2 full Graham Crackers
3 1/2 Full size Hershey’s Bars
16 large marshmallows

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
  2. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.  
  3. Line foil into an 8×8 inch baking pan and spray generously with cooking spray.  
  4.  Pour half the brownie batter into lined pan.  Layer graham crackers over brownies following Hershey Bars and marshmallows.  Pour remaining brownie batter over marshmallows.  
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes mostly clean from center.  
  6. Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Carefully remove foil and brownies from pan.  Peel any foil from away from edges and cut into squares.
12 brownies

I think my pan was a 9x9, I ended up with 16 brownies.  The middle stuff is the best, especially when it's still a little gooey.

Thank you for the recipe Picky Palate.

Summer Corn Salad

I made this salad for 4th of July.  Corn = a summer staple.  But I don't like eating corn off the cob, so this recipe was perfect!

Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Servings: ~10
WW:  2 pts/serving

6 ears corn, husked and cleaned
3 large tomatoes, diced (I used romas)
1 large onion, diced  (I used red)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbs white vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted (optional) water to a boil.  Add corn and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or until desired tenderness.  Drain, cool, and cut kernels off the cob with a sharp knife.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the corn, tomatoes, onion, basil, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Chill until serving.
So good.  So refreshing.  Perfect summer side dish!
