I am going back to my roots with these indulgent chocolate s’mores brownies.

I love all desserts (that’s an understatement!), but chocolate holds a special place in my heart.

Fruit desserts are lovely but when I am feeling down, all I want is a big bite of some chocolatey goodness. This is what I have here!

With a graham cracker crust (with mini chocolate chips), fudgy brownie, and a layer of toasted marshmallows these brownies are sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

I must have gotten my love for chocolate from my mom. If she has her choice, everything will be chocolate. While she says she won’t eat any non-chocolate dessert, we all know that any dessert will be gobbled up.

I try to never make the same cake twice, but they all have lots and lots of chocolate from cake to filling to the frosting. Now back to today’s recipe…

Begin by lining an 8 x 8 pan with aluminum foil (click here for instructions). As I have mentioned before, this is my favorite way to line pans as the brownies come out very easily without anything sticking to the pan.

To make the graham cracker crust mix graham cracker crumbs, mini chocolate chips, and melted butter in a small bowl.

Quick tip: You can buy graham cracker crumbs in the store or you can crush ~12-14 graham crackers sheets in a food processor.

Press this mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Now onto the fudgy brownie 🙂 Whisk the flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Place the butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. When melted, add the sugar. Then mix the eggs and vanilla until incorporated.

Add the flour mixture and stir until incorporated.

Pour over the graham cracker crust and bake.

When there are 5 minutes left in the baking time of the brownies, sprinkle the marshmallows on top of the brownie.

Return to the oven and bake for 5 minutes until the marshmallows are golden brown and toasty. Cool on a wire rack, then slice into 16 pieces.

When removing the foil from the edges of the brownies, the marshmallows will cling to the foil. Gently push them onto the brownie (or just eat them!). While these treats are on the messy side, they are delicious and totally worth all the crumbs!

  1. I have seen these before and always want to try them – it combines 2 of my favorite things s’mores and brownies 🙂 I pinned these for later!

    1. Everyone has their favorite dessert, but the s’mores components of these might just make them a favorite!

  2. Yum, this looks delicious! I’m so sad, here in the Netherlands we don’t have chocolate chips and I never know a good alternative for them. Do you have any tips? Thank you!

    1. Thank you! Yes certainly, the easiest thing to do is chop a chocolate bar into small, bite size pieces. You can then use those chocolate chunks just as you would chocolate chips. It may even be better since the chocolate is probably of higher quality. Since this recipe requires mini chocolate chips, you could just exclude them or cut the bar into tiny pieces. I hope this helps 🙂

  3. These look so good! I love the idea of the graham cracker crust on the bottom! You can never go wrong with inspiration from Ghiradelli.

    1. Yes, definitely! There fudgy brownies are so good that there was no point in using another recipe. The additions of a graham cracker crust and marshmallows just bring it to a whole new level 🙂

    1. I have not personally done it, but yes you should be able to use a blender. You can also place the graham crackers in a bag and crush them with a rolling pin or heavy pot. Enjoy the recipe, I would love to hear how you like it!

    1. Yes, you definitely will be! I have not seen them readily in the store but I know they are definitely out there or you can order them online. In case you don’t have a good gluten-free brownie recipe this is one of my favorites: http://www.marthastewart.com/903048/fudgy-pecan-brownies. You can just exclude the pecans if you like, that’s what I have done when I have made these in the past. Enjoy 🙂

  4. You’re right, this would make any bad day so much better! Making the brownie batter seems much easier than I though it was. These look s great, and I love that you put it all on top of a graham cracker crust…S’mores!

  5. Oh goodness. Those s’mores brownies look so divine! I would love to have some, or make some myself. Looking at the photos made my tummy grumble!

  6. Wow, it looks delicious and pretty. With a kid with allergies we don’t eat many sweets but this can be easily modified without dairy. We are going to try this!

    1. Yes, it definitely can be! I will be adding recipe variations for those with dietary restrictions (dairy-free, vegan, gf) where applicable in the near future as well. Enjoy 🙂

  7. Oh, another version of smores! I love LOVE it! We do girl scout cookie sales and the Smores is so popular but still isn’t the same thing as smores or a smores brownie! Yum!

  8. I dont know what to say except for awesomeness! I love brownies but these smores brownies are out of this world. I can almost taste them just from looking at these pictures.

  9. It looks so easy and delicious! I’m a big fan of chocolate! For real! I can’t live without it… So brownies are some of my favorite chocolate treats! Especially these ones? With s’mores?! I will have to try these out!

  10. I just made these. I’m an experienced baker but these did not turn out–not sure what I did wrong. I cooked them for the recommended time and the brownies were super goopy–like they weren’t done cooking. I put them in for an extra 10 minutes and it still looked like raw batter. Any ideas what went wrong?

    1. Hi Brittany, I am sorry this recipe did not work for you. These brownies are intended to be dense and very fudgy. They should look slightly under baked when finished but should firm up when cooled. Here are a few suggestions and questions that I have. Are you located at altitude? Was it humid outside? Once the brownies cooled, were they raw batter or had they firmed up? Did you cook the brownies 10 minutes past 20 minutes or past 30 minutes? Since every oven is different, this can effect the baking time. In order to account for this I suggest getting an oven thermometer since setting an oven to 350 doesn’t necessarily mean it is actually at 350 degrees. Make sure that you use large eggs, extra large eggs could affect the consistency of the batter. I look forward to hearing a little bit more about these potential variables and I hope we can troubleshoot the issue! Best, Sarah
