S'mores Brownies -- It's like camping in your living room
Camping. It's one of my favorite things.
And I'm not talking about staying in an RV. That's not camping. That's taking a mini version of your house and parking it in the woods.
Nor am I talking about packing all you need in a pack on your back and trekking out miles and miles, no bathrooms nor showers in sight. That's not camping, either. That's roughing it.
What I am talking about is a tent, some lanterns, a fire surrounded by friends who hopefully play the guitar, and some marshmallows on a stick.
Sometimes, however, I don't get to do this activity that I love so much. Actually, the older I get the less opportunities I have. What used to be a several-times a year thing is now a once-a-year situation. What's a girl to do when you really want the feel of camping and you just can't have it?!
She makes s'mores brownies, that's what she does.
Luckilyy for me, Joy the Baker figured this one out. S'mores, in the form of brownies, that come out of your oven.
So, if you are craving some camping time and cannot fit it in, have no fear. Just pick up a copy of Joy's book or visit her blog to see how to make this happen in your living room. I have to admit, I was a slightly tempted to roll out my sleeping bag, light up the lantern, and sing a little kum-ba-ya...
To find this recipe, visit Joy's blog HERE. Or, better yet, buy the book HERE.
