S’mores Brownies



These brownies were one of the first creations I made in the kitchen. They were created purely out of necessity. You see, we had just hosted one of our annual Halloween bonfire & bat cave outings and I had a ton of left over s’mores supplies. I didn’t want them to go to waste so I thought up this little gem to help me use them up.

Fast forward a few years later…I am now buying s’mores ingredients just to make these brownies. They are that good.Probably my favorite brownies ever.


These are great to throw together if you are having a bad day or its just one of those weeks..where you crave chocolate something fierce. Actually let me add that these are also great when you are having a good day and an even better week. In fact, they are fabulous pretty much whenever. Like when you’re browsing Victoria’s Secret bikinis online after a long day at work Winking smile

I personally prefer the regular sized marshmallows in these (it makes them extra gooey), but use whatever you’ve got on hand!

Total time
Serves: 9 servings
  • 1 ½ sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 graham cracker squares
  • 4 Hershey’s bars (1.5 oz each)
  • 5 oz marshmallows (regular or mini)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F°. Grease an 8 inch square pan.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla, eggs and sugar until thoroughly combined. Mix in cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt until well blended.
  3. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Layer graham crackers side by side over the top of the brownie batter until completely covered. Next place a layer of Hershey’s chocolate bars side by side over the graham crackers. Then lay the marshmallows out over the chocolate bars. Pour remaining batter evenly over the marshmallows, spreading with a spatula if necessary.
  4. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

    Hi! I know this was posted a year ago haha..but I wanted to know if this could be made with brownie mix as well.

      Hi Nia! Yes! Of course you can use brownie mix instead – I just never have any on hand so I make my own.

      To make them with a brownie mix, just make the mix according to the directions on the box. Pour half of the brownie batter into the pan – then lay out graham crackers side by side across the batter, add a layer of chocolate bars, then evenly distribute the marshmallows on top of the chocolate bars. Once you have all your layers, pour the remaining brownie batter over the top. Bake according to the directions on the box.

      Hope this helps!!

    These turned out great. I put them in for about 38 minutes. Followed the recipe exactly except I didn’t have vanilla extract so I used almond extract. I would highly suggest using mini marshmallows because I used the large ones and they expanded ALOT + were messy. If anything they made it hard to cover the top layer of marshmallows with the last layer of batter (it was semi sparse), but otherwise the taste was great, the smell was toooooo good :)

    Thanks a lot! Simple and easy enough for a college student!
