Ooey Gooey S’mores Brownie Bars

As a kid, I loved camping… even if it was just in my front yard ‘til my friends and I grew fearful of the dark, cold and bugs wanting a warm sleeping bag to invade! It was a fun little adventure to share a small space with big bags of junk food and people you didn’t mind being really close to. Sleeping under fleecy blankets on top of the soft earth seemed so wild and adventurous! I didn’t even mind the midnight treks to toilets and awful aching back in the morning. Nothing a long, lazy afternoon nap can’t fix…

Since my hubby (the hand model below) doesn’t DO camping, though, I’ve found other ways to get those fuzzy, feet-in-the-grass summer feelings! There’s no better way to do it than with a batch of toasty, fire-roasted s’mores. But, the second best way? These incredible, easy S’more Brownie Bars.

A crisp bottom layer of graham crackers rests under a chocolaty, chewy layer of brownies topped with soft marshmallows. Nestle in chopped up Hershey’s bars and crumbled graham crackers, bake ‘em for just a few more minutes, and you’ve got yourself a camp-style treat worthy of indulging in for any summer occasion!

These taste exactly like a real s’more, but BETTER, if you can imagine. They definitely didn’t last long at the July 4th party I brought them to!

Trust me, these S’mores Brownie Bars really live up to their name! Ooey, gooey and absolutely delicious. Whether you’re trying to get your campfire fix or just baking up these bars to share with friends, you’re gonna love them! No bonfire required. Only one bowl, one pan and a little bit of patience while they bake and cool!

PrintPrint Recipe

Ooey Gooey S’mores Brownie Bars

Yield: Makes about 24 bars

Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray

1 (18 oz.) package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)

Eggs, oil and water, as called for on brownie mix package

6-10 whole graham crackers, depending on size*

3 cups mini marshmallows

1-2 Hershey’s chocolate bars, cut into small pieces

2-3 graham crackers, crushed into small pieces

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Prepare the brownie batter according to package directions. Set aside. Arrange graham crackers in a single layer in the pan. Spread brownie mix evenly over crackers.

Bake for 25-28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with marshmallows, chocolate bar pieces, and crushed graham crackers. Bake 5-7 minutes longer, or until marshmallows are slightly puffed and golden brown. Cool completely before cutting (refrigerating for 1-2 hours speeds up the process).

Enjoy!

TIPS

You may need to cut the graham crackers to fit the shape of the pan. This is easy to do!

    I’ll be honest with you – I’m not much of a camper except for 1 reason – the campfire and the s’mores. But now I think I could skip out on the camping and make these right in the comfort of my own kitchen!

    These look absolutely sinful Georgia. We had a campfire a few weeks ago and we made smores, but before that, it had been ages since I’ve had them. My favorite smore is made using a Reese Peanut Butter Cup. That takes them to a whole new level – lol! I’m adding this recipe to my list of goodies to take glamping because I know (my luck) the first time we camp it will probably be a wet weekend and we won’t be able to have a campfire. Murphy’s Law!

    Btw, my husband loves camping, although I have managed to convince him not to take me yet. It just doesn’t sound like fun to me…and too many mosquitoes. =)

    I weep every time I see a graham cracker containing recipe. I forgot to pack them in my suitcase. :'( And I decided against buying graham flour. So mad at myself!

    Anyway, these look awesome! Can’t wait until I have graham crackers one day. :D

    Oh and plus I just made homemade marshmallows making it all the more painful that I don’t have graham crackers.

    Sad story, huh? ;)

    Nice idea but I think i’ll pass on what would be a $20 box of graham crackers after shipping. ;) And Nilla Wafers? Haha. The only American cookies or crackers we have are Oreos and Ritz (both of which were a recent development). I’ll just have to find a graham flourless graham cracker recipe. I bet they exist! :)
