Peanut Butter S'Mores Brownies
Recipe adapted from Tracey's Culinary Adventures

For the graham cracker crust:
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (from about 6-7 whole graham crackers)
1 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
Pinch of salt

For the brownies:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter 
2 cups mini marshmallows

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line an 8" square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving overhanging foil on the sides to create handles for lifting out the brownies later.
- For the crust, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.  Add the melted butter and mix until evenly combined.  Transfer to the prepared pan and press the crumbs firmly to create an even layer.  Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.  Set aside as you prepare the brownie batter.
- For the brownies., put chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until completely melted.  Mix in the butter until smooth.  Set aside to cool.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.
- In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Add the cooled chocolate to the sugar/eggs and whisk together.
- Use a rubber spatula to fold the flour mixture into the batter, mixing until the flour is just incorporated.
- Transfer the brownie batter to the prepared pan and spread into an even layer on top of the graham cracker crust.  Drop dollops of peanut butter over the batter and use the tip of a knife to swirl it in.
- Bake for 25-27 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove the brownies from the oven and set the oven to broil.
- Top the brownies with mini marshmallows and return the pan to the oven and broil them until they are puffed and toasted (about 2 minutes).  
- Let the brownies cool completely in the pan for about 2 hours.  Then, use the foil handles to lift the brownies out and transfer to a cutting board.  Spray your knife with cooking spray to keep the marshmallows from sticking to it while you're cutting, or just let the brownies sit covered overnight to make cutting easiest.
