Campfire Brownie Smores

I have been feeling under the weather for the last few weeks and I thought to myself, what do I want?! What would make me feel better? Brownies was the answer! I was going to make brownies with mini marshmallows and graham crackers on the top but I had an even better idea. I would replace the chocolate in smores with a thick, fudgy, brownie! So much fun right?!

The Brownies

My go-to recipe is adapted from King Arthur Baking’s Fudge Brownie recipe. The difference is mine are in a smaller baking dish so they are thicker, they have more baking powder which makes them cakier, they have two types of cocoa, and less chocolate chips. They are super simple to make and taste way better than boxed brownies (personal opinion).

Plate of one bowl brownies which is the center of the campfire smores.

Prepare an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and non-stick cooking spray. By using the parchment paper it allows you to lift the brownies out of the tin making it easier to cut them and construct your smores later.

Start by melting the butter and sugar over high heat. When it is melted together and comes to a boil it will start to get a crystallized appearance, this is what gives brownies the shiny crackle layer on top when baked. When it does this remove it from the heat and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs until they become pale in color. Add the two types of cocoa, vanilla, and salt and whisk until incorporated. Slowly add the butter/sugar mixture, whisking continually until incorporated.

Add the flour, baking powder, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Fold with a spatula until just combined.

Pour into your prepared baking dish and bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. You can take them out sooner if you want a gooey rather than cakey brownie. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Constructing The Campfire Smores Brownies

  1. Graham Cracker
    • Cinnamon graham crackers are the best because I feel they give these Campfire Brownie Smores even more depth and flavor.
  2. Brownie
    • You can use my recipe or a boxed brownie (no judgements here).
  3. Roasted Marshmallows
    • Get toasty and gooey marshmallows by campfire, kitchen torch, or oven broiler.
  4. More Graham Cracker
