S'more Squares

Serves: 48
Total Calories: 84


1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2/3 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon water
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 ounces milk chocolate bars, melted
4 dozens miniature marshmallows


1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place an oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Fit a sheet of aluminum foil to the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square pan. Invert the pan and gently press the aluminum form into the pan to fit the contours.

2. TO MAKE THE CRUST: In a large bowl, blend the graham cracker crumbs and the sugar. Add the butter and blend thoroughly. Press the crumbs into the foil-lined pan and set aside.

3. TO MAKE THE FILLING: Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda onto a piece of waxed paper. In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring occasionally. Turn off heat and stir in the water. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and let cool for about 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar, then the eggs and vanilla, just until blended. Add the flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Pour the filling into the crumb-lined pan, spreading evenly.

4. Bake for 30 minutes only. Remove from the oven and transfer the pan to a wire rack. Let cool completely.

5. TO MAKE THE TOPPING: Transfer the cake from the pan to a cutting board by lifting the foil by its edges. Cut a 6-inch square of parchment paper and roll it into a cone. Tape the sides closed and cut off the tip of the cone to make a small opening. Pour the chocolate into the cone and pipe zigzag lines over the filling. Cut the cookies into 1 1/2-inch squares. Center a mini marshmallow on each square, and pipe a tiny dot of chocolate in the center of each marshmallow.

TO MAKE AHEAD: Store at room temperature in one layer in a covered foil-lined cardboard container, such as a cake box, for up to 2 days.
