I originally made these s’mores brownies back in 2011 when Citizen Cake still existed in San Francisco, but since they’re still my favorite recipe for them, I wanted to share.

Note: Some links in this post may contain affiliate links, which means at no cost to you, I may earn a commission.

Now, the reason I call these a DIY is because at the time I couldn’t exactly afford a $6 brownie whenever I wanted so I figured out a dupe to make them myself. Back in 2011, I couldn’t find the recipe listed and even though I ordered the the Citizen Cake book, Demolition Desserts, I needed marshmallowy brownies immediately so I took to improvising.

What I did have, however, was Maida Hatter’s Book of Great Chocolate Desserts. So I used her Palm Beach Brownie recipe as the base and then made a few modifications, including substituting the coffee with 2 Tablespoons of Kahlua to give it a unique spin.

Smore's Brownies Ingredients, including graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and kahlua

Therefore for this recipe, I recommend you either use your favorite brownie recipe or boxed mix and add in a bit of Kahlua. And I certainly won’t judge if you sneak away some of the ingredients to make a quick microwaved smore while you’re at it!

Ingredients for S'mores Brownies:

  • Batter from your favorite brownie recipe or boxed mix (be sure to get the ingredients listed on the box or in the recipe)
  • 2 Tbs Kahlua
  • 6-8 Graham Crackers (from one sleeve)
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 20 Marshmallows

Instructions

1. Start by making the brownie batter (either by the recipe or box mix). As you mix in the wet ingredients, add in the Kahlua. Set aside.

2. Next, break up the graham crackers into roughly 1 inch pieces.

Tip: Leaving some nice big chunks makes for a better overall texture so don’t be afraid to vary the size of pieces.

3. Carefully fold these graham cracker pieces and chocolate chips into the brownie batter. Be sure to do this gently or the graham chunks will crumble. Remember, you just spent that time making them the right size!

4. Pour the mixture into a 9x13in pan that has been lined with aluminum foil and greased.

5. Place the marshmallows on top, spacing them evenly (or not – I’m personally all for a mostly marshmallow brownie). Push them lightly into the mixture.

6. Bake in the oven according to brownie recipe or package instructions, ensuring the marshmallows are golden brown.

Tip: If the marshmallows turn golden brown before the time is up in the oven, loosely cover the pan with tin foil. This will prevent them from burning.

7. Let them cool (either in the pan or out, according to recipe instructions – most say to leave them to cool in the pan).

8. Cut and enjoy!

For making a smores dessert at home without a campfire, these brownies come pretty close to the real thing. And I have to say, even while typing this up, these are making me drool. I’m off to make some myself!
