S'mores Brownies

S'mores Brownies > the ultimate s'mores for indoors!

Summer and s'mores go hand in hand...unless, of course, it's still 90 degrees at 8pm and standing over a fire is just out of the question. Also, mosquitoes.

The solution? S'mores brownies.

S'mores Brownies > the ultimate s'mores for indoors! Ooey, gooey, melty perfection!
A buttery, graham cracker base with a rich, fudgy brownie layer, topped with milk chocolate bars and marshmallow cream. The brownies are baked, topped, then popped under the broiler for a couple of minutes to brown the marshmallow and give that over-the-campfire look and taste. All without stepping into the elements. Yay!

I love that this brownie batter comes together all in one pan; no mixer required.

The batter gets poured over the graham cracker crust, then baked. Psst...lining the pan with foil makes these so much easier to remove from the pan.

After a few minutes under the broiler, look at the golden marshmallow topping!

The brownies are ooey, gooey, sticky, and glorious. You'll let them cool before cutting, but if you want the warm, melty s'more experience, you can have it. Simply heat in the microwave for 8-10 seconds before serving.

S'mores Brownies
(makes one 9x13" pan)

for the crust:
1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

for the brownies:
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour

for topping:
7 full-size milk chocolate bars
2 (7 ounce) containers marshmallow creme

Grease a 9x13" pan. Line with foil. Grease the foil. Preheat oven to 325.

Stir the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar, and salt together. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter for the brownies over medium-low heat. Once melted, stir in the sugars. Heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is hot, but not boiling.

Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Add the vanilla and whisk to combine. One at a time, whisk in the eggs. Stir in the flour.

Pour the batter over the crust and bake for 28-30 minutes, or until done. Place on a wire rack to cool for about 30-40 minutes.

Place an oven rack on the second highest level. Preheat the broiler on high.

Place the chocolate bars on top of the brownies. Then, spread the marshmallow creme over. Use an offset spatula to spread evenly.

Set the oven timer for 3 minutes (just an insurance in case you get distracted). Put the pan on the oven rack and close the door. Shift the pan every 30 seconds or so, making sure that all of the marshmallow gets browned. Remove from the oven and onto the wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, cut into squares to serve. If desired, brownies may be heated in the microwave for 8-10 seconds each.

  4. I like to make s'mores using the Ghiradelli milk and caramel filled squares. I think I'll try both ways JUST TO MAKE SURE these are as tasty as they look.

  5. ACK! I don't have marshmallow creme. Do you think real marshmallows would work? Should I melt them down and spread them or just plop them on top like I do on my sweet potato pie?

    1. Put the marshmallows right on top, then under the broiler. The top won't look at smooth, but it'll still be the same idea.
