I went to BJ’s Restaurant the other day and had their new S’more pizookie and it was so so so good! It was a chocolate cookie with peanut butter on top and roasted marshmallows. They put two big scoops of ice cream on top of all of that goodness as well. My boyfriend and I just died it was so good. I hadn’t had a pizookie in a while and I am so glad I spent the extra money on it. I used that pizookie to inspire my brownie pie that I referenced in my last Fitness Friday post! Please note that I did over-brown my marshmallows so I adjusted the time for y’all, but I promise they were not black in real life!Ingredients:
1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust (or you could switch it up and try out oreo or make your own crust!)
1 brownie box mix of your choice (I used a Betty Crocker supreme fudge brownie mix)
1/2 bag of marshmallows
1/8 to 1/4 cup of peanut butter (depending on how much you like peanut butter)
Prepare the brownie batter as directed on the box (or you can make it from scratch). Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pie crust, making sure not to over fill or fill to the top as it won’t bake well.
Bake the brownies for about 35 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees or until almost fully baked. Spread the peanut butter on the brownie while it is still hot (it will get melty). Then cut the marshmallows in half and line the cake pan with two rows of marshmallows.
Next, place the pie back into the oven for 3 minutes or until the marshmallows have browned. OR if you have a food torch, you can bake the brownies for about 38 minutes and then torch the marshmallows until they are toasty. Bon appetit!
(I broiled my marshmallows for a little too long…. whoops!)
If you want a simple recipe, you can always omit the peanut butter and marshmallows!
