Recipe: Smores Brownies

These Smores Bownies are a decadent mixture of all those things Smores lovers want and more… gooey chocolate … graham crackers and of course… marshmallows… beware they are addicting!

Put these out on football night and watch them disappear! Make them ahead and pop them in the microwave to reheat or eat them at room temperature… just delicious!

This recipe is from Betty Crocker… I made some adjustments…. Instead of the brownie mix called for, I used Betty Crocker’s Fudge Brownies – Traditional Chewy Brownie Mix…. the original brownie mix is way too sweet to use for this recipe.


I used an 11 x 7 inch pan… anything smaller will make the brownie layer too thick.

I made the brownies chewy… you definitely want a chewy brownie not a cakey brownie. I’ve used this mix for years… I bake them for exactly 26 minutes.

You can use any brownie recipe you prefer, if you want to make these from scratch. I have an excellent brownie recipe you may want to consider making.

Line your pan with non-stick foil… leave a little over-hang so you can grab the foil to lift out the brownies from the pan… I would have to say this step is a must for these brownies… infinitely easier to get out of the pan this way.

Don’t have non-stick foil?... line your pan with foil and grease the foil as directed in the brownie directions. I also lightly grease the non-stick foil to ensure no sticking.

Use a wet knife to cut these, otherwise they will be difficult to cut.

The original recipe called for Hershey’s Chocolate bars… Warren bought me the really big ones… which were really too thick… use the smaller bars, which are thinner… in fact… those little ones you give out at Halloween would be perfect. The recipe says to break them into 1 inch pieces… mine were hard because the candy bars were so thick… so I cut them into smaller pieces.

Making these for kids?..... Use Teddy Grahams for the graham crackers… they will look adorable.

Try these … you’ll love ‘em!
