3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Toasted Marshmallow Frosting

7oz jar marshmallow fluff
2 1/2 cups icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Graham cracker crumbs, for garnish
Mini marshmallows, for garnish

Directions

1) For the brownie layer, preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat two 8-inch round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray. Line both pans with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk melted butter, sugar and brown sugar until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and continue to whisk until smooth. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips, stirring until flour has disappeared. Spread into prepared pans and bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before assembling cake.

2) For the chocolate chip graham layer, preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat two 8-inch round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray. Line both pans with parchment paper. Using an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, combine well. Add vanilla extract, mixing until combined. On low speed, add graham cracker crumbs, flour, salt and baking soda, mixing until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and spread into prepared pans. Bake for 25 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely before assembling cake.

3) For the toasted marshmallow frosting, place marshmallows on metal skewers and toast carefully over an open flame. Set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream butter, toasted marshmallows, marshmallow fluff, icing sugar and vanilla, until fluffy and a spreadable consistency.

4) To assemble the cake, place 1 brownie layer on a serving plate. Spread ½ cup marshmallow frosting over the top. Top with chocolate chip cookie layer. Spread ½ cup of frosting over top and place remaining brownie layer. Spread ½ cup frosting and top with remaining chocolate chip cookie layer. Spread the remaining frosting on the top and sides of the cake. Gently pat graham cracker crumbs around the sides and top of the cake. Garnish with baby marshmallows on top and drizzle with melted chocolate to hold them in place.
