You don’t have to wait for a campfire to enjoy a bite of s’mores. Enjoy a whole pan of the decadent flavors of graham crackers, toasted marshmallow and chocolate melted anytime of year. This treat packs in rich layers, perfect to share!
So I’m a bit off today. One of my boys was very sick and up a lot during the night. He had a minor surgery yesterday, which went great, but his stomach did not agree with the anesthesia. There is nothing tougher on a mama than having a sick/sad/hurting kid! He is resting now. I should be resting, too, but I have posts to write and treats to make!
Sorry, not much fluff today. Aside from the marshmallows, that is.
Here is Day #8 of Twelve Days of Christmas Treats!
(Recipe adapted from The Emeals Blog)
What makes a traditional s’more?
Over a crackling campfire, you can toast a large marshmallow, and sandwich it between two pieces of graham crackers and hershey chocolate bars. They melt together for a delicious, traditional treat!
What’s a S’mores Brownie?
It’s a change up from the traditional treat with layering the flavors on top of a fudgy brownie bed. Once the brownies are baked, you add the broken graham pieces, throw in some mini marshmallows and top it with chocolate bars. All of it is placed under a broiler for maximum melted tastiness.
How do you cut S’mores Brownies?
That’s easy – it’s up to you! You can make each slice bite size and make them easy to pop in your mouth. Or feel free to cut larger bar sized pieces and cut into it to enjoy your dessert like a slice of cake.
Prepare a 19.5-oz. box of brownie mix (family size) in a 9×13 baking dish, according to package directions.
While the brownies are baking, set the following aside:
8 cinnamon graham crackers, broken into pieces
2 cups miniature marshmallows
Three 1.55-oz. Hershey’s bars, broken into pieces
Remove the brownies from the oven and set oven to Broil.
Top the brownies with the graham cracker pieces and the marshmallows. No structure is needed here. Unless you want there to be.
Once the broiler is ready, return the pan to the oven and broil for no more than 2 minutes, or once the marshmallows just start to brown.
Remove the brownies from the oven and immediately place the chocolate pieces over the top. Allow the chocolate to melt slightly. If they aren’t melting enough for your liking, place the pan back in the oven for a minute.
Cut into squares and serve. Store, covered, at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
You can’t go wrong with these. They are virtually impossible to mess up! Good luck! Farewell! Till next time (tomorrow)!

After reading these comments I was very nervous about how my brownies were going to turn out, but fortunately for me, THEY TURNED OUT AMAZING!!!! They were sooooooo good! Thank you for the recipe, I am not a very experienced Baker or cook so I was very surprised at how perfect they turned out to be! I just followed the directions, added the marshmallows at the very end for about 6 minutes.
I’m so glad you tried them and had a delicious dessert! Thank you for sharing!
Isn’t cutting these really difficult??? Help
Just a warning to keep an eye on the brownies while they are under the broiler. It is a fire hazard!!!

i baked these tonight to take to a super bowl party tomorrow. thyley look & smell amazing! I cannot wait to try them 🙂
hopefully they will taste just as good a day later.
Hi Amanda! I'm not sure I would recommend adding all of the ingredients to the pan before baking, but you can certainly try. The marshmallows are meant to be lightly toasted and the chocolate just melted. If you decide to give it a try, let me know how it works out! I would cook the brownies for the entire recommended time so they are cooked through.
Hi! This is a fantastic recipe that I'm planning to use for a Super Bowl party. I don't have a ton of experience with baking, so my question is: would you have to adjust the baking time if you mix the s'more ingredients in the brownie batter?
Hi Rayray! Yes, the brownies should be fully baked before adding the graham crackers, chocolate pieces and marshmallows. At that point, the entire pan is broiled for just a few minutes to melt the chocolate and marshmallows. Hope this helps!
Should the brownies be completely done before topping them with the graham crackers and marshmallows?
Hi Tia! Regular graham crackers will taste just as delicious in this recipe!
Oh my goodness, I'm going to have to try these! Can you use regular graham crackers as well or does it not work as well as the cinnamon graham crackers?
This looks divine! I might try making it with mini peanut butter cups instead of the Hershey's bars.
Oh man! I hope you're little man is feels better soon 🙂 Lots of snuggles, soup and a few of these INSANELY GOOD LOOKING s'mores brownies oughta make him feel right as rain!
