S’mores Brownies

smores brownies

Did everyone have a great Memorial Day weekend?  Did you camp?  Hike?  Picnic?  Barbecue?  Eat a few marshmallows?  I definitely did a little of the last one. 😉

Well…I have a confession.  I’ve been a little addicted to s’mores lately.  Just a couple posts ago I offered up these chewy s’mores bars.  And not too long ago I couldn’t get enough of this delicious s’mores pie.  And now that summer is unofficially here the obsession has grown.  And this time they’re combined with a chewy, gooey brownie. What could be better?

These brownies are soft, fudgy, and dark.  What’s your favorite kind of brownie?  Some people love cakey brownies.  Some belong to camp fudge.  I’m fudge all the way.  Nothing makes me happy quite like a decadent brownie.

So when you have a rich brownie that’s beautiful all on its own, why not add s’mores toppings to make them even more over the top?  Sounds like a great idea with me!

These brownies are covered with toasted marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs, and just because we’re trying to climb the walls from a sugar high, you also have a nice thick layer of ganache drizzled over everything.

Are you in your happy place yet?

Now these brownies may seem to be a little involved.  They do have quite a few steps.  But most of that is just waiting for things to cool.  Just let that time be yours to do your best imitation of the Cookie Monster chatting to Siri while waiting for his chocolate chip cookies to bake.  (If you’ve seen the commercial, that’s pretty much exactly how I act whenever I’m waiting for something to get out of the oven.  Haha.)

If you are craving s’mores like I am this summer, grab one of these beauties. They’ll definitely leave you with a chocolate-stained grin on your face.

Happy s’mores!

S'mores Brownies
 
Ingredients
  • For graham topping:
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • For brownies:
  • ⅔ cup unsalted butter
  • 5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups mini marshmallows
  • For ganache:
  • 6 ounces Hershey bars, chopped (or other milk chocolate of your choice)
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
Instructions
  1. To make the graham topping, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl mix the crumbs, butter, and sugar until the crumbs are completely moistened.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and spread the crumbs out into a roughly ten inch circle.
  4. Bake for ten minutes, then allow to cool.
  5. Keep the oven on while making the brownies.
  6. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  7. In a small saucepan over medium heat melt the butter and chocolate together, stirring constantly.
  8. Once melted, set aside and allow to cool until lukewarm.
  9. Meanwhile, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the sugar, vanilla, and eggs on high speed for 5 minutes.
  10. Reduce speed to low and add in the flour until just blended, scraping down the bowl if you need to.
  11. Pour into your prepared pan. Bake for 28 minutes, then remove from the oven, top with marshmallows, and bake for another 12-14 minutes, or until marshmallows are golden.
  12. Allow brownies to cool.
  13. While cooling, prepare the ganache.
  14. Place the chopped milk chocolate in a heat proof bowl. In a small pan, heat the cream until it just begins to boil.
  15. Remove from heat and pour the cream over the chocolate. Allow to sit for a minute, then stir until the chocolate is smooth and silky. Allow to cool until lukewarm.
  16. Pour most of the ganache over the marshmallows and spread evenly.
  17. Sprinkle on the graham cracker crumbs, then finish by drizzling the remainder of the ganache.
  18. Allow to set up in the fridge for a few hours, then serve.

      Thanks, Gayle! Now just keep me away from s’mores milk shakes. 😉

    “So when you have a rich brownie that’s beautiful all on its own, why not add s’mores toppings…” I like the way you think, girlfriend!! I’ll take two, please! 🙂

      If you’re going to have the calories, have ALL the calories. That’s my motto. 😉 Thanks!

    I can never say to a brownie, especially one as rich and decadent as this recipe.

    • Amanda June 2, 2016, 2:05 pm

      I’m sort of drawn to brownies like a magnet too. Thanks!

    I can’t tell you what brownie is my favorite, since I’m allergic to cocoa.. unless blondies count!! Then obviously those are my fav. 😉 Smores are such a quintessential part of summer, and one I definitely miss! LOVE that you turned them into brownies! My husband will go crazy for these! Cheers, friend!

    • Amanda June 2, 2016, 2:07 pm

      Thanks so much, friend. Actually you’re kind of making me crave a s’more blondie too. Made with white chocolate instead of regular. That would be great!

  • Rachelle @ Beer Girl Cooks June 1, 2016, 7:15 pm

    I do love me a fudgy brownie! These look so awesome! I’ve never had a s’mores brownie!

    • Amanda June 2, 2016, 2:08 pm

      Be warned: once you have one you can’t stop at just one. It’s a sugar high thing. Haha.

    I love brownies and can’t resist them. And these with s’mores look absolutely delicious, and perfect for this little warm weather Amanda.

    • Amanda June 2, 2016, 2:09 pm

      Thanks so much. Yep, as soon as the weather gets lovely I start craving s’mores…and watermelon. But not together. 😀

  • Lisa @ Chocolate Meets Strawberry June 3, 2016, 3:47 pm

    Ooh, these s’mores brownies sound amazing Amanda! It’s such a shame that s’mores aren’t a ‘thing’ here in Austalia. The first time I came across the idea a couple of years ago I was like ?!?! but now I’m in love with the marshmallow/chocolate/cracker combination! So yum 😀

    • Amanda June 6, 2016, 9:18 am

      When I was a kid it seemed like none of the adults had s’mores because they were a sticky mess and just for the kids. But now that I’m an adult all the adults have s’mores. We’re not letting the kids have all the fun. 😉

  • Eva @ Eva Bakes June 5, 2016, 4:45 am

    These s’mores brownies are my new happy place!!

    • Amanda June 6, 2016, 9:19 am

      Haha. Thanks, Eva! I’m going to remember that next time I make these!
