With a homemade brownie base for S’mores Brownies, it’s easy to change them up to exactly how you like. For a chewy fudge brownie, you can substitute brown sugar for the granulated sugar, or use brown sugar and leave out the cocoa powder for a S’Mores Blondie! Fold in more chocolate chips for bursts of chocolatey flavor, or add a layer of mini marshmallows between the brownie batter.
S’mores Brownies are so easy to make that even your little bakers can help out as a fun after school activity. The brownie batter is made with cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate, so their fingers will be safe as they mix everything up. They will have fun sprinkling on the s’mores toppings and you can use the variations below for even more topping ideas.
These S’mores Brownies are so gooey and delicious on their own, but a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream would make them even better. You can also drizzle cooled brownies with some Chocolate Ganache or Salted Caramel Sauce for a super sweet summertime treat.

VARIATIONS AND MIX-INS
- Marshmallows: For a gooey, toasty marshmallow topping, add jumbo marshmallows, cereal marshmallows, or Homemade Marshmallows after they are done baking. Top brownies and broil until toasted and golden brown (skip this step for cereal marshmallows option).
- Marshmallow Fluff: Add even more gooey marshmallow topping with marshmallow fluff. Bake brownie batter without s’mores topping. Cool for 5 minutes then use the back of a wooden spoon to poke holes over top of brownies. Spread a thick layer of marshmallow fluff then top with graham crackers, chocolate chips, and mallow bits. Broil until fluff is toasted and chocolate is melted.
- Chocolate: Swap semi-sweet chocolate chips for dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips. You can also use chocolate bar pieces, mini peanut butter cups, peanut butter chips, toffee bits, or M&Ms.
- Graham Cracker: Instead of graham cracker pieces, use golden grahams, vanilla wafers, chocolate graham crackers, or other sweet crackers. Bake on top of a Graham Cracker Crust for a buttery, chewy layer!
- Brownie Mix: Make this S’mores Brownies recipe even easier with a box of fudge brownie mix. Replace the dry ingredients with brownie mix and use only 1 egg. Keep the butter, it will makes boxed brownies taste richer than using vegetable oil.
- Brownie Bites: Line a mini muffin tin with paper liners and divide batter between 24 cups. Top with chocolate, crackers, and marshmallows. Bake for 11-13 minutes at 350 degrees.
