S'mores brownies

• 1 box brownie mix, batter prepared to package directions (I used Pamela's Gluten Free)

• 4-5 Graham Crackers, broken (I used Pamela's Gluten-Free)

• 6-8 large marshmallows, cut in half

• 1/2 cup chocolate chunks

Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Lightly coat an 8"x 8" baking pan with oil or pan spray and line with parchment paper. Pour the brownie mix into the pan and spread evenly. Break the cookies into pieces and push gently into the top of the brownie batter. Then top the batter and cookies with the marshmallows, cut side down, and sprinkle the chocolate chunks evenly over the top. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy.

“Creative Living” is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden. The show is carried by more than 118 PBS stations in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico and is distributed by Westlink, Albuquerque.
