We have a fire pit in our backyard and we love making s’mores! We use our fire pit at least 2 times a week and making the perfect s’more is quite the skill to master. We have a friend that holds the title of making the perfect s’more. I always designate him to make my s’more because I usually burn the marshmallow because I am not very patient. His trick was to get the marshmallow perfectly golden and let the chocolate melt on the graham cracker by the fire. You know it is an amazing s’more if you have chocolate and marshmallow all over your face when you get done! These s’mores were perfect!
I sure missed our fire pit while living in North Carolina. So I had to give all of our friends a s’more fix while we were out there. All of the delicious goodness is PACKED into this brownie! The melty marshmallow, the graham cracker crust, and a hershey bar melted on the top for the frosting! The brownie were perfectly moist and rich. These of course were a huge hit and loved by all!

These are absolutely amazing! Just taste tested one from the batch I made to bring to Thanksgiving and it exceeded my expectations!
I love the fact that the marshmallows are on the inside. My grandson likes S’mores, but not the how gooey the marshmallows are and how they get all over his fingers 🙂 I am going to make these for his birthday!
I will definitely try these for sure!!!
really great my kids love it…
These are our new favorite bars! My crust fell apart, so next time I will bake it a little first. I also added some marshmallows on top that were wonderfully crunchy! Thanks for a great recipe! Perfect for this crazy ice/snow in the south!
Do you use all purpose flour or seld rising flour?
Can u use the candy marshmallows u use in hot chocolate
I think I would use the regular ones because when they get all melty they taste delicious. You could try though and let me know how it is! 🙂
They didn’t cook what did I do wrong?
Were they still really gooey??
Mine came out really gooey in the center, even with about 10 extra minutes cook time. It seems like the wet to dry ratio might be off a bit — it was like no other brownie batter I’ve seen. I’m going to try these soon with a regular brownie batter and see what happens.
I thought this was one of the best brownies that I have made. Mine were not gooey at all. You can kind of tell by the picture. I was able to stack them. Sorry they didn’t turn out.
I just made them and the same thing has happened to me. I wonder what I did wrong. Maybe it should be baked at a higher temperature? I’m not a baker AT ALL so I’m not sure. I’ve got them back in the oven right now to see if maybe they need to be baked longer. Fingers crossed and I’m need some chocolate tonight!! haha
Looks yummy but I’d put the marshmallows on top for the last few minutes and let them toast! Mmmm…
Yes you can do that as well! And then let the chocolate melt on top and spread it out. I personally like mine between the brownie and nice and melty. 🙂
These sound delightful!
