- 1-1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
For the brownie
- 1 package prepared chocolate brownie mix
- 1 pint fresh raspberries, cleaned and dried
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 egg
For the topping
- 2 whole graham crackers, broken into small pieces
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
For the crust
- Line an 8-inch-square baking pan with foil so that it hangs over the edges, and preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
- Use a medium-sized bowl to mix together the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
- Press the crumb mixture evenly on the bottom of the pan.
- Bake until golden, or for about 20 minutes. Remove and set aside.
- Raise the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
For the brownies and topping
- Meanwhile, use a medium-sized bowl and mix the brownie mixture together, then gently fold in the raspberries.
- Pour the batter over the graham cracker crust.
- Bake the brownie mixture for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the brownie comes out clean.
- Remove the brownie and place the oven on broil.
- Meanwhile, break the two graham crackers into small pieces and arrange them in a single layer on top of the brownie.
- Next arrange the mini marshmallows evenly over the top of the graham crackers.
- Place the brownie back in the oven for just for a few minutes, until the marshmallows begin to brown. Keep a close watch on them so they don't burn.
- Remove from the oven and cool completely.
- Remove from the pan using the overhanging foil and cut into bars to serve.
