Final Thoughts

These brownies were quite fudgy and had a slight s’mores flavor. I think it was because the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate worked together to create a hint of that familiar flavor. The crunchiness of the chopped nuts also gave the brownies a nice texture. I loved that I didn’t have to heat up the house, so I’m sure I will make these again this summer.
