Scratch Made: S’mores Brownies


My husband is a cookie monster.

My childhood visits to the dentist almost always included getting a cavity filled.

Nany always had a bowl of ice cream before going to bed and my Mammaw used to eat sugar by the spoonful when she was younger.

What can I say? My family likes sweets.


My sweet tooth is always kicking, but these days, I try to make some of my favorite sweets just a little bit healthier.

In most cases, you can’t tell one bit!

This is one of those cases.

Eat one and you can bet you’ll want s’more.
