I have wanted to make s’mores brownies for months.

Don’t ask me why. I just really love the whole s’mores combination, no matter what it may be. I knew that making these brownies would require me to eat the entire pan.

This was way too complicated for Mr. How Sweet. He couldn’t be concerned with such a brownie.

Sometimes he closet eats entire batches of cookies and brownies. Other days he is following the cabbage soup diet.

Ok. Not really. But sometimes our house smells like he is following the cabbage soup diet.

The thing was, I wasn’t quite sure how to make them.

I knew I wanted a graham cracker crust – I could live off of graham crusts. Yum. But would the brownies bake on top of a crust?

I ended up using a boxed brownie mix.

It was simple, only required a few ingredients, and if I messed up, I could just get out another mix and try again! Plus, boxed brownie mixes are sent from the Heavens. They are fabulous.

After making a base filled with grahams and lots and lots of butter, I added the batter directly onto the crust.

Things were going great.

I baked the brownies for the specified amount of time. They appeared to be finished with the toothpick test, so I let them cool for another 2 hours or so.

And later, when I cut into them, a nice glob of raw batter came pouring out.

Massive fail.

I was craving this mess of chocolate and marshmallow slop, so there was no way that this wasn’t going to turn out.

I discarded the first row of brownies, and put it back in the oven.

Is that allowed? It is in my house.

Smart move.

The brownies came out full of deliciousness and ready for my grubby little hands to dig in.

S'mores Brownies I howsweeteats.com

S’mores Brownies

1 box brownie mix (or a recipe for oooey, gooey brownies or dark chocolate brownies)

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1 1/2 sticks butter

16 jumbo marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 (or to directions on brownie mix).

In a 9×9 pan, melt butter. Add graham cracker crumbs, making sure they are fully moistened and press into a sturdy crust.

Mix up brownies, and pout batter over crust. Bake for recommended. Test with a toothpick before removing – the brownies likely need another 15-20 minutes because of the graham crust on the bottom.

Once fully finished baking, add on jumbo marshmallows. Set under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, or back into the preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Watch closely to make sure marshmallows don’t burn.

Let cool completely – 2-3 hours.

I know I say it every time, but I think this one is my favorite brownie combo. It’s a love hate relationship.

They are fabulously delicious, and perfect for tightening your favorite pair of pants.

    I just came across your website today and I’ve been laughing (and enjoying the wonderful recipes) all afternoon. But when I read the part about how you could live off of graham crusts: All I can say is Me Too! It’s nice to know there’s someone else out there who feels the same. hahah I love your site. Keep up the great work! :)

    I made something very similar to these this weekend. I had a cake mix and didnt want to do boring cupcakes so I thought smores! The marshmallow was sooo hard to cut though. It was sooo gooey even after “setting” for 4-5 hours!

    Okay…so I just made these brownies. And…there was a huge marshmallow fire. If I can make a recommendation…just heat the marshmallows in the stove at 325 degrees. The broiler is a….bit much.


    • Jessica — January 7th, 2011 @ 12:18 am

      Great tip – it also depends on how far away your pan is from the broiler!


    • Joe B — July 26th, 2011 @ 12:20 am

      We just came upon this misfortunate side effect as well! Glad our house is still standing :) Definitely bake the marshmallows away from the broiler.

    megan — April 3, 2011 @ 12:49 pm

    I’m making these today and can’t wait to try them! Is there any way I can share this link on FB so I can make all my friends jealous???

    Jessica — May 24, 2011 @ 8:35 pm

    Made these today – so delish! Did the graham cracker crust as follows – 1 package of grahams, crushed, 6 tablespoons of butter, 1/4 cup sugar. Baked crust for 6 minutes. Mixed up brownies (I used Trader Joe’s mix) and baked for 30 minutes. Cut big marshmallows in half and covered the top and stuck under the broiler until golden brown. So good!! Thanks, Jess! : -)


    • Jennifer Drummond — September 6th, 2011 @ 6:11 pm

      I used gram cracker cereal and Trader Joe’s mix too! How did you like them? I’m waiting for them to cool now!!


      • Jessica — September 6th, 2011 @ 7:07 pm

        I LOVED them! And great minds think alike – I am making them again tonight and using mini marshmallows this time for a change. Trader Joe’s is amazing – you cannot beat their brownie mix. I wish I had a mini blow torch… ; -)

    Jennifer Drummond — September 6, 2011 @ 6:10 pm

    OMG! I just made these and talk about empowering! I used a mini blow torch after five minutes in the oven to toast my marshmallows! I love it!! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Know I have to wait till it cools to try it, I can’t wait, it’s going to be sooooooo good!

    Hey there! Could I add bacon to this? If so at which point? Crumbled on top? Mixed in the batter? Please advise! Thanks!

    It is difficult to trace the exact history of cabbage, but it was most likely domesticated somewhere in Europe before 1000 BC. By the Middle Ages it was a prominent part of European cuisine, although savoys were not developed until the 16th century. Cabbage heads are generally picked during the first year of the plants’ life cycles, but those intended for seed are allowed to grow a second year, and must be kept separated from other cole crops to prevent cross pollination. *
