S’more Brownie Recipe
To me, there’s nothing that says summer and fall more than camping. And what camping trip is complete without making s’mores around the campfire? My family loves them, and we love roasting marshmallows with friends around the fire pit in our backyard. But what if I want to make s’mores year-round at home?
These Easy S’more Brownies are the answer! I first tasted a s’more brownie at my sister’s house, and I thought they were ingenious. When I got home, I got to work mixing my favorite brownie recipe (the chocolate!) with the rest of the ingredients of s’mores (marshmallows + graham crackers), and I think the outcome is delicious!
S’more Brownie Ingredients
- Graham crackers
- Mini marshmallows
- Vegetable Oil
- Cocoa powder
How to Make S’more Brownies
1. Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving 1 inch of overhang on the sides. This will allow you to lift the brownies out after baking. (If you want to forgo this, you can just grease your pan, but using parchment paper really does make them easier to cut.)
2. Break graham crackers into squares and make a layer of them in the bottom of your dish. You might need to break a couple of the squares in order to cover the whole pan.
3. Combine oil, sugar, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl. Mix until well-blended.
4. Add flour, cocoa powder, and salt and continue mixing.
5. Pour brownie batter over the graham crackers (it’s okay if the batter seeps between the crackers).
6. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out (relatively) clean.
7. While the brownies are baking, break a few graham crackers into 1-inch pieces.
8. Pull the brownies out of the oven and immediately pour an even layer of mini marshmallows and the broken, 1-inch pieces of graham crackers over the top.
9. Turn the oven to broiler, and put the brownies on the top shelf. Watch them VERY CLOSELY — you want them to reach a golden brown color, just like if you had roasted marshmallows over a fire. Start checking them after 30 seconds and check them every 5-10 seconds after. They will not need longer than 1 minute, but they can burn in the matter of 5-10 seconds.
If the marshmallow layer does burn (it happens to the best of us, and by the best of us, I mean me), just scrape it off carefully and make another layer.
Let the brownies cool completely.
How to Cut S’more Brownies
After your brownies are cool, carefully lift them out with the parchment paper, cut them into 4 rows lengthwise, and then into small squares. They are pretty sticky to cut, so you may have to wipe off your knife in between cuts and wet it again.
Tips and Equipment for Making Easy S’more Brownies
- You need a 9×13 pan to make these. This one is a great choice if you don’t have one. (Just half the recipe if you want to make them in a 9×9 pan.)
- Using parchment paper makes these brownies so easy to get out of the pan and slice. I’ve only recently started using it, and it makes clean-up so much easier!
- If the marshmallow layer on your s’more brownies burns (it happens to the best of us, and by the best of us, I mean me), just scrape it off carefully and make another layer.
- Cut these as big or as small as you like. I have noticed that if I cut them too big, my family says they’re too rich. A little is better than too much in this case.
- You can make these with a brownie mix, but from-scratch brownies taste so much better — I promise. (Unless your brownie mix is Ghirardelli — those are delicious!)
I hope you enjoy these Easy S’more Brownies from Scratch! They’re great for serving guests all year long. Let me know in the comments how you like them! And make sure to pin them for later!
