All you need are a few simple ingredients for these Homemade S’mores Brownies. A fast and easy family dessert.
During the summer, one of my favorite things to make as a kid was s’mores. While I like a good bonfire, I LOVE the fact that I can have this quick and easy Homemade S’mores Brownies dessert any time of the year.
These easy homemade s’mores brownies start with our grandma’s famous Fudgy Brownies as the base, but then are layered with toasted marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate squares to make the perfect s’more dessert.
WHAT ARE S’MORES?
A s’more is basically a graham cracker sandwich – take a graham cracker, break it in two, put a toasted marshmallow and half of a chocolate bar in. between the graham crackers and there you have it!
“S’more” is short for “some more”. There are many opinions about who first came up with a “s’more”, but there is one early published recipe by The Campfire Marshmallow Company in 1920’s. It’s been around for a very long time!
Usually s’mores are cooked over a campfire (here’s a cool way to make them in the microwave!), but this recipe has you toast the marshmallows on top of your brownies right in your oven.
