Gooseberry Patch Recipe Review 2: S’Mores Brownies

foryourposts

finished

WOW these were a hit!  Easy peasy!  Quickity quick and gone in a flash!  I even made a small pan of gluten free just for me!  This is one of those recipes that is so easy to convert to gluten free and I am always happy to find those.  One little thing I tweaked the recipe just a tad because I bought the brownie mix that was for an 8 x 8 pan instead of the 9 x 13 called for in the recipe.  It worked out great since I made two batches AND I used all the chocolate bar called for – more chocolate is never a bad thing right???

S’Mores Brownies

  • 18 1/2 oz. pkg brownie mix
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 whole graham cracker, coarsely crushed (I had graham cracker crumbs on hand)
  • 2 chocolate candy bars, broken into small pieces

Prepare brownies as directed on package; bake in a greased 13 x 9 baking pan.  As soon as brownies are removed from the oven, sprinkle with marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs.  Set oven on broil.  Broil for 30-60 seconds, until marshmallows are golden.  Watch carefully, as marshmallows will brown quickly.  Sprinkle with candy bar pieces.  Let cool for 15 minutes before cutting into squares.  Serve warm.  Makes 2 dozen.

My notes: They are good cold too!  For the gluten free version use gluten free brownie mix and gluten free graham cracker crumbs.  Still oh so good!  Honestly Ben couldn’t tell the difference.  He’s my guinea pig taste tester when I convert recipes.

Enjoy!

Gooseberry Patch’s Quick & Easy Autumn Recipe 1: Simmered Eggs in Tomatoes

Look, seriously, the only way this recipe could be quicker or easier is if someone fed you!  It was delicious!  I have wanted to try something like this for a long time.  I saw a recipe being made once on a cooking show, a Middle Eastern dish, and this is very similar only WAY easier!  And the gluten free version was just as easy – use gluten free bread for your toast!

Simmered Eggs in TomatoesSimmered Eggs in Tomatoes

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 cup stewed tomatoes, cut up (I had some in my freezer from last Summer YAY!)
  • 1 /2 cup onion, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • buttered toast

Heat oil in skillet over low heat.  Place tomatoes and onion in oil.  Cook 5 minutes.  Drop eggs into skillet, one at a time; add salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until eggs are cooked through as desired.  Serve hot on buttered toast.  Makes 2 servings (4 for us).


I have to say again, it is going to be really REALLY difficult to pick the 6 recipes to share.  I have about 3 dozen marked!!  So excited to share this book with you all!  Now leave me a comment and enter to win this great new book from our friends at Gooseberry Patch!

Welcome April!

I do love that it is finally warming up some.  It has been unseasonably mild the last few days but I think that might be changing.  I am a little curious though where our April Showers are.  We need rain.  Tender little seedlings need rain.  I am watering everything but it just isn’t the same. Plus it would be lovely for some of the pollen to be washed off of things so I can stop with the sneezing already :/

Before I get into the amazing Gooseberry Patch announcement – here are your April calendars – ENJOY!
