No Bake S’mores Brownies

Taste Test Thursday is a day late this week, but I had a good excuse. I made these No Bake S’mores Brownies for my co-worker Elysa, as it’s her last day before she moves on to another company. I couldn’t post because she reads this blog, along with a few other coworkers (hi!) and she would have seen them and known that they were made for her. (Besides that, I wanted them to be fresh for Friday, so held off on making them until Thursday night).

Elysa is a fellow foodie and often brings in tasty treats for the office. The best, in my opinion, being cake pops. I had never heard of such a thing before she brought them in, but they are fantastic. Ever had them? Fan.tas.tic.

A few months back I brought in a few S’mores Bars that I had made. Elysa loved them, and knowing she is something of a chocoholic like myself, I wanted to make something similar to share on her last day. The problem is the 90+ degree weather in NJ and the 15 month old baby and pregnant wife I live with. Turning on the oven was a no go.

Thank goodness for the Internet and fellow food bloggers!

Even if isn’t too hot to turn on your oven, I think you’ll appreciate both how simple these No Bake S’mores Brownies are, and how tasty they are.

Confession time: I had to try one. I know, I know. They’re for co-workers. But hey, I can’t very well share a recipe with you if I haven’t tried it myself, right? Well, that’s the excuse I’m sticking with anyway.

Elysa, best of luck with your new position!
