S’mores Brownies – Rich, fudgy homemade brownies on a graham cracker crust topped with toasted marshmallows and bits of chocolate!
You can definitely make these s’mores brownies using a brownie mix if you want, but there is just something about brownies from scratch that make them special. Homemade brownies are just a handful of ingredients to make, so almost as easy as the box mix.
These S’mores Cookie Bars are always a huge hit, so I decided to take the same idea, and make them with brownies. Rich, fudgy brownies on top of a graham cracker crust, that are then topped with toasted marshmallows, and more chocolate. It is seriously like heaven in every bite.
S’mores desserts always seem to win people over. S’mores Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies are definitely chocolate-y and cure all those chocolate cravings. Chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows together just make for a tasty treat.
HOW TO MAKE BROWNIES
- Butter vs vegetable oil – really either works, it depends on the recipe. I usually use oil, but have a couple recipes with butter. Butter can be a little more greasy if you use too much. And it gives it a slightly different flavor. But both work and taste great.
- Cocoa powder vs melted chocolate – again both work. You can even look at the back of your cocoa powder container to see what the substitution is. So if you don’t have one, you can definitely substitute the other.
- Use a spatula – you do not need an electric mixer for brownies, just a bowl and a spatula.
- Pans – I like a metal baking pan for baking brownies. Glass works, but I think the texture is different. I don’t get the same edges when I used glass.
Often times s’mores are reserved for the summer, because you need it to be nice out to have a fire. But these brownies make it so you can have them any time of the year. Bring them to your Memorial Day get together, or make for Valentine’s Day, or make them just because you want a gooey and chocolate-y dessert!
If you have a chocolate lover in your life, you need to make these s’mores brownies for them. They will forever be in your debt. I mean just look at that gooey, fudgy brownie!
