AP Chem final: done. Phew. I feel like a two ton weight has been lifted from my chest and a can take a nice, deep breath. Until next week, when I take the actual AP exam, that is.
And with my badminton season winding down, I can start baking on school nights again! Yay!
As for now, my friend Sophia from Sophia’s Sweets has shared these delicious looking S’mores Brownies with us! A major event in my life was me going to the Dollar Tree the other day and buying two bags of mini marshmallows. My parents do not buy me marshmallows. So now I’m all excited to have marshmallows in my house, and I can actually make these yummy treats! Thank you so much, Sophia, for sharing these S’mores Brownies 🙂 Check out Sophia’s blog, Sophia’s Sweets, for more amazing recipes like this one!
Hello! Thanks so much to Dru for letting me share one of my favorite recipes on her lovely blog! We met through a Facebook group with several other teenage foodie bloggers and have enjoyed exchanging recipes and chatting about baking with each other. I’m Sophia from Sophia’s Sweets, a 15-year-old baker in New York City. I love baking all sorts of sweet treats for my family and friends and trying out new recipes!
As a high school student, some of my biggest pastry consumers are my friends. While they will love just about anything I bring them (hello, free baked goods!), I try to come up with new things all the time. Last week I was going to a test review session after school and decided to bring something new – s’more brownies!
These brownies are more on the cake-y end when baked plain, but with the marshmallows baked in, they become wonderfully gooey. Add in chocolate chunks that get all melty and graham cracker pieces for crunch, and you have a delicious brownie! These are the kind of treat just about anybody will love – they are sophisticated enough to be enjoyed by foodies, but also use classic flavors that kids enjoy. I couldn’t get enough of them, and neither could my friends!
