Imma be honest with you because I tell you everything about me already – even if you don’t wanna hear it. I completely forgot I made this bread. It’s been like 7 weeks since I made this bread for you and I completely forgot about it. Don’t get me wrong, this is not one of those forgettable recipes. It’s fan-freaking-tastic, but in the middle of some family stuff that’s been going on (that I am going to tell you about soon), and then getting sick, it just completely left my mind. Speaking of being sick…. I am sick AGAIN! It’s just a cold and I’m trying not to let it get bad, but I’ve been really paranoid that I am going to end up in the hospital again anytime I start coughing. I swear, I think I’ve been traumatized for life now.
What I love about this bread is that it is your typical pull apart bread – nothing too fancy at all. The only thing I did was sweeten it up ever so slightly, then stuffed it with some s’mores fixings. Easy peasy.
And since there just aren’t enough marshmallows inside the bread, I topped it with about a million mini marshmallows and toasted it up.
I know it doesn’t look it, but this baby is kinda messy because inside those slices, is a TON of chocolate and graham cracker. I mean, I couldn’t even pull apart any slices without making a huge mess of everything. (hence why there aren’t any pictures of it).
You know what. Since this month’s been so hectic, I think I’m going to have to make another loaf or two of this and relive the deliciousness!
- 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2¼ teaspoons (1 package) quick rise yeast*
- ⅓ cup milk
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- ¼ cup water
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon butter extract (optional)
- 2 large eggs
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 package graham crackers, crushed
- 10 oz milk chocolate, lightly chopped
- 10 oz bag marshmallows
- In a bowl, mix together 2½ cups of the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, butter, water, and extracts.
- Slowly stir in the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and mix until combined. Add in the eggs one at a time, and incorporating well before adding the next. Slowly add the remaining flour and then knead for at least 10 minutes (you should only need about 3 - 4 minutes if using an electric mixer with dough hook). The dough should be sticky, but manageable.
- Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover. Leave in a warm, dry area and allow to rise for about 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
- Deflate the dough and turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out until it is about 10 x 18, Brush with the butter, then sprinkle the graham crackers and chopped chocolate.
- Use a pizza cutter to cut out about 4 strips lengthwise. Stack these strips and then cut down into 6 sets of squares.
- Brush a 9 x 5 loaf pan with butter and place the squares cut side down into the loaf pan, pressing them together as needed to fit it all in. Stuff each of the slices with a generous amount of marshmallows (you can try to add the marshmallows in with the chocolate and graham crackers, but I found that was too difficult), as you add in another set of squares.
- Cover the pan and allow it to sit for another 15 - 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until the top is a nice light brown. Top with additional marshmallows and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows melt together and are lightly toasted on top.
