Create Ephemere Brownie Ice Cream Smores
Summer is here, making now the perfect time to enjoy an iconic summertime favorite: Smores. The irresistible combination of marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate began in the 1920s and is still enjoyed today. Dilettante made a delicious summer treat with its signature Ephemere sauce to celebrate the new summer season.
This dessert may take more time to make, but the elegant flavor makes it more than worth it. This recipe combines the traditional taste of a smore with Ephemere chocolate brownies topped with marshmallows and vanilla ice cream for an indulgent experience.
- ½ cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 ¼ cups of Semisweet Ephemere Sauce
- ½ Cup Baking Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 5 Ounces Mini Marshmallows
- 3 Cups of Ice cream
- 10 Graham crackers
Begin by preheating the oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, add the cream, butter, sugar, and eggs together and mix. After reaching a smooth consistency, pour in the Ephemere chocolate sauce. Finally, add baking powder and mix thoroughly.
In a square baking pan, pour the batter in, and cook for 25 minutes. Remember to allow the brownies to cook before adding marshmallows. If left in the oven for too long, marshmallows can burn, turn black, and ruin the brownies.
After 25 minutes, remove the brownies from the oven. The top surface of the brownie should still be warm and slightly moist. Add a layer of marshmallows on the top of the brownie tray and place it back inside the oven for five additional minutes.
After five minutes, turn on the oven light and watch carefully. The marshmallows should spread across the top of the brownies and take on a slightly brown color.
By baking with lower heat, these brownies take on a delightfully fudgy texture, matching the consistency of the toasted marshmallows.
Using a butter knife, cut two squares of brownie from the pan, using a graham cracker as a guide. Next, place two graham crackers on the tops of the brownies and put a scoop of ice cream in between the two brownies, making a sandwich.
Create as many smores as you like and enjoy. These treats are perfect for enjoying eating with your hands or on a plate with a fork. Each batch of brownies should make 14-18 brownies and 7-9 smores.
