S’more Brownies, the perfect combination of chocolatey brownies, gooey marshmallow, delicious graham cracker, and tasty chocolate. These S’mores Brownies are the best!
Do you guys love s’mores as much as I do? Like seriously- they are so good!
Last week I shared my S’mores Bars with you and this week I bring you these beauties!
These brownies on their own are amazing- but make them into their s’more version and you have a killer combo!
I could talk forever about how good these brownies are- but let’s talk about how to make them!
How to make S’mores Brownies?
- Whip up a batch of my easy homemade brownies
- Let cool then poke holes in the brownies using the end of a wooden spoon
- Pour your marshmallow fluff mixture over the top and spread it out
- Top with graham crackers, chocolate pieces, and mini marshmallows
- Broil on high for 1-2 minutes- watching the marshmallows carefully so they don’t burn
- Eat up!
Can I use unsweetened baking chocolate bars? Or regular cocoa powder?
For these brownies I used Hershey’s Super Dark Cocoa powder because I love my brownies made with it. But you can use 4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate or regular cocoa powder.
Regular cocoa powder is a 1:1 swap with the dark cocoa powder.
If you use 4 oz of unsweetened baking chocolate simply follow the directions here.
Can I make these s’mores brownies dairy free?
Yes!!! Swap out the butter for coconut oil. Marshmallows are naturally dairy free and simply use your favorite dairy free chocolate chips. Graham crackers are usually dairy free too- just check the labels. Easy peasy!
Do I need to use espresso powder? Why is it in the recipe?
Espresso powder is not required to make these so if you don’t have you can just leave it out. It doesn’t make the brownies taste like coffee. Espresso powder has been known to make chocolate goodies (like cakes and brownies) taste even more chocolatey and that’s why I love using it!

- ¾ cup + 3 tbs unsalted butter
- ¾ cup cocoa powder*
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp espresso powder optional
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips*
- 1 Jar of marshmallow crème 7oz
- 2 tbs of water
- 4 chocolate bars chopped (I used Hershey’s bars)
- 1 sleeve of graham crackers crushed
- 5 oz mini marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350°F and spray 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray
- In a microwave safe dish melt the butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until the butter is completely melted. (3/4 cups plus 3 tbs unsalted butter)
- Stir cocoa powder into melted butter making sure there are no clumps. Set aside. (3/4 cup cocoa powder)
- While butter mixture is cooling, in a separate small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. (1 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt)
- In a stand mixer, or using a hand mixer, mix together the butter mixture (it’s okay if it’s still warm), sugar, espresso powder, and vanilla. Then add the eggs one at a time, letting each egg become fully incorporated into the batter before adding the next. (2 cups sugar, 1 tsp espresso powder, 4 large eggs, 1 tsp vanilla)
- By hand, with a large rubber spatula or mixing spoon, fold in the flour mixture. Folding in the flour will help the brownie batter keep the air in it.
- Fold in the chocolate chips. (1 cup chocolate chips)
- Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Let cool for an hour then using a wooden dowel or the end of a wooden spoon poke holes into the brownies in a grid type pattern.
- In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the marshmallow cream for 15-30 seconds or until the crème is melted. Stir in 2 tbs of water to make the crème pourable. (7 oz marshmallow crème, 2 tbs water).
- Pour the crème over the brownies. Use a spatula or spoon to smooth it over the holes.
- Spread crushed graham crackers and chopped chocolate bars over the brownies. Top with marshmallows. (1 sleeve of graham crackers, 4 chocolate bars, 5oz mini marshmallows)
- Turn your oven broiler on high and place brownies in the over. Broil for 1-2 minutes but WATCH the marshmallows carefully! You only want them to brown and it is very easy to go from perfect browned marshmallows to burned mess using the broiler.
*I used special dark cocoa powder, but normal cocoa powder will work too. *You can also use two extra chocolate bars chopped up instead of chocolate chips.
