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.

    You’ve inspired me to actually BAKE brownies — I make them often…more often than not though…the majority of that batter is consumed before baking. haha :-D

    LOVE IT!!! My husband and I had a fire place in our cabin on our honeymoon. We totally made s’mores (sans graham crackers because we couldn’t find any Gluten Free ones where we were)!

    I am obsessed with all things marshmallow, and brownies are one of my all-time faves, so this is like a recipe from the heavens for me ;)

    Everything is better with graham crackers and toasted marshmallow. I actually have everything to make these and the kids are on Spring Break starting today…I will definitely be giving these a go today!

    Annie@stronghealthyfit — April 2, 2010 @ 4:56 am

    That looks SO good. I may just try it, and I would definitely make the brownie layer from scratch. I might substitute Fluff for the marshmallows though… it has a lot fewer ingredients :-)

    I would LOVE to bake as much as you do, but I have to ask.. what do you do with it all?? If I had all of those wonderful goodies in my house I would be the size of a barn! Do you take it to work? Send it to work with Mr. How Sweet? Disperse to the neighbors? Maybe if I had a surefire way of getting it out of my house I would spend more time on baking yummy things, haha!


    • Jessica — April 2nd, 2010 @ 5:26 am

      I get this question all the time!

      The majority of our family is around here. Yes we share – we see family almost every day, and always on the weekends. Other than that, if it is not something that has to be baked in a ‘pan’ – like these brownies – I have mastered the art of baking for 2 – cookies, smalls cakes, cupcakes, single serving cheesecakes. I 1/2 or 1/4 every recipe I make, so most only yield 10 units or so. I usually only bake on the weekends as well.

      Other than that, Mr How Sweet eats like a horse. He may run 10 miles in the morning and lift for 3 hours, then have a steak and 16 cookies. He’s quite the eater. ;)

    Smores is one of my favorites!! I would LOVE to make this for my hubby, but he’s a plain brownie guy. If I make this… it would be me… eating the whole thing ;)

    I love s’mores, but they would be even better in brownie form. What a great idea!

    Yum! I have an obsession with s’mores… my husband totally doesn’t get it so sadly (or not?) I wouldn’t have anyone to share with.

    I am drooling over here. One more reason for me to come to Pittsburgh. To eat all your delicious food. [If Mr. How Sweets does not first!]


    • Caitlin — April 3rd, 2010 @ 8:59 pm

      I’m willing to bet if you make a trip up here, oh say, in 4 weeks you’d get them.

      Just a thought :)

    Mackenzie@The Caramel Cookie — April 2, 2010 @ 7:08 am

    These look great! I made these for my friend’s bridal shower a few years ago and I accidently broiled the marshmallows too long and they caught on fire. I haven’t attempted these since but perhaps I should because I love the flavor of s’mores!

    Naomi(onefitfoodie) — April 2, 2010 @ 7:18 am

    BAHHH the thing I love about your recipes is they are SO SO simple yet come out looking so complicated!!

    love these and I want to lick my computer screen :)

    are you kidding me?! i don’t even love s’mores and i am SURE that i would fall in love with these. perhaps i already have? :)

    Kate @ Cozydelicious — April 2, 2010 @ 7:56 am

    Yum, yum yum! I adore marshmallows and can’t wait for it to actually be summer so I can finally have s’mores again! But it’s still a bit cold and wet here so roasting marshmallows over the fire isn’t happening just yet. But these amazing, gooey-looking brownies might just hold me over! Have you ever made them with mini-marshmallows? I’m thinking that might be cute (and I happen to have a bag of them in my kitchen already).

    Jenn@slim-shoppin — April 2, 2010 @ 8:38 am

    Love the idea!

    I made brownies from a box last week, I didn’t have any eggs, so I just used the water, oil and yogurt instead.

    After the specified time, I opened the oven, the WHOLE thing was totally bubbling, like it was just too much oil. I cooked it for like 45 minutes and it still wouldn’t bake! I had to throw the whole thing out. But, like you said, at least its not an expensive mistake!

    My kids would love your idea!

    You seriously need to stop with these tantalizing posts until Sunday. I’m about to break down and have a chocolate binge right now.

    On another note… how is it that we did not take a picture together at Fitbloggin?!? I think we need a re-do.

    Sarah @ THE FOODIE DIARIES — April 2, 2010 @ 3:57 pm

    i, too, have a strange love for the s’mores combination. i’ve tried to concoct everything i eat in s’mores form–s’mores blondies, s’mores oats, s’mores ice cream (ok that one was essentially putting s’mores on top of ice cream haha)

    Divina — April 2, 2010 @ 6:29 pm

    marla {family fresh cooking} — April 2, 2010 @ 6:56 pm

    No, you can’t go wrong with a graham cracker crust. Why are they called crackers when they are crumbly delicious cookies? I once threw a cake bake in the oven too…works out so why not! These look divine!

    Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) — April 2, 2010 @ 8:26 pm

    smores anything rocks. the smores coffee has been holding me over quite nicely. til i saw these!!! WOW!
    Love this. And i love how you were hell bent to not waste them, not b/c of the money but b/c you HAD to have them and dammit you were gonna make it happen. That’s my attitude in life., not just brownies. Yours too i know :)


  44. #
    McKella — April 2, 2010 @ 10:37 pm

    I am so making these, but I think I’ll add a big blob of peanut butter on top, because I looove peanut butter on my smores. You are a genius.

    The Candid RD — April 3, 2010 @ 5:50 am

    This may be my favorite recipe of yours, so far!!! I LOVE SMORES, just like I love my s’more Poptarts :) Thanks for the recipe!! Now I just want a campfire and some campfire songs!

    Lorin — April 3, 2010 @ 11:04 am

    I just started reading your blog, awesome by the way! I tried the chocolate banana bites and they were delicious. I have a question though, it seems like you bake a lot, do you actually finish it with your husband or do you give the baked goodies to friends too? I wouldn’t be able to keep the stuff you make in my house, it would be gone that day!

    Biz — April 3, 2010 @ 11:30 am

    Um, definitely think those brownies are insulin worthy!!!!

    Cheryl — April 3, 2010 @ 1:47 pm

    that is amazing! i like to put a graham cracker, one marshmallow, and a small piece of hershey chocolate together in the microwave for 10 seconds for a quick smores treat!

    Lara (Thinspired) — April 3, 2010 @ 2:51 pm

    Oh my goodness. I didn’t even know s’more brownies EXISTED! These remind me a lot of these s’more cupcakes I had last week from a bakery. Same thing with the graham cracker crust + marshmallow topping. But yours are homemade, so I am sure they are 1000 times better!
