We recently hosted a seafood boil at Carlyle Lake (Coles Creek) for a large number of family and friends. I was trying to decide what to make for dessert since dessert is like a second course for my family–almost everyone brings one. I wanted to make something that was quick and easy. And when you bake in a camper oven, you don’t always get the results you are hoping for. Since the oven is small, my experience has been that things do not cook evenly as in a full-size oven. I knew that cake would be a challenge because of this, but I thought brownies would probably work pretty well. Thus was created my Campers Delight Graham Cracker Dessert.

This recipe uses a boxed brownie mix as the base. I wanted to create something that would mimic s’mores since that is a camping favorite. This recipe contains all the s’more ingredients–graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. If I had to make one suggestion when making this recipe, I would make it several hours or a day in advance of serving because the graham cracker crust is a little difficult to cut through. But as the dessert rests, the graham crackers soften which makes the cutting much easier.

Ingredients
  • 1 sleeve graham crackers
  • 1 box brownie mix which probably requires eggs, oil and water (I used Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme)
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups mini-marshmallows
  • 12 ounces cream cheese frosting
  • 2/3 cup Nutella
Instructions
  1. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with the graham crackers to completely cover the bottom of the pan.

  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions using eggs, oil and water. Mix the pecans and marshmallows into the brownie mixture. Spread on top of the graham crackers and bake according to the package directions. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes before frosting.

  3. Spread an even layer of the cream cheese frosting on the top of the cooled brownies. Spread swirls of the Nutella on top to achieve a light and dark pattern.

  4. It is better to serve this after several hours or the next day in order for the graham crackers to soften.
