Brownies and s’mores collide – does life get any better? I don’t think so! Over the past few weeks we’ve taken a bite out of s’mores cheesecake, got cozy with an epic s’mores skillet cookie, and now the “it” brownie of the season has arrived! I am so excited to share these must make s’mores brownies with you, and with a golden graham cracker crust, decadent brownie filling, and gooey marshmallow topping, I don’t think these are going to take much convincing…
I will say from the get-go, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with brownies, but I had no idea just how right this collaboration would be! You guys know how much I live for putting twists on classics, and I thought if s’mores are all kind of amazing with a piece of chocolate in there, how amazing would they be with a brownie instead? I also love creating deserts in bar form because I think they’re super approachable, great for entertaining, and it allows you to add multiple layers of flavor and texture, resulting in one incredible bite!
These definitely check all the boxes, and I love how easy the recipe is too. You start out with a simple graham cracker crust, that in my opinion totally makes this production, and then comes the brownie batter. The brownie itself hits all the right notes with melted chocolate and a touch of espresso powder, aka, my secret weapon for adding extra oomph to chocolate desserts. I love a little oomph, you?
Once you pry yourself from the batter, it’s time to top that beautiful graham cracker crust and bake them.
The last part is to top them with marshmallows and broil them. You’ll definitely want to keep a close eye on them because they can go from lightly golden to burnt toast in a matter of seconds! Cutting through those marshmallows can get really sticky so if you need a little help, I find a bit a pan spray on my knife works wonders. Personally, I’m good with a little sticky here. I think it adds to the overall appeal of these gems!
The hardest part about making these is waiting for them to cool enough to take that first bite! It’s pure torture, but I can tell you it’s so worth the wait! You get the crunch for the graham cracker crust, the warm, decadent brownie and gooey, toasted marshmallow all at once, and you did it all without a campfire!
I hope you guys love these as much as I did, and make sure to hop, make that run, over to Farberware for the full S’mores Brownie recipe!
