I love summer! Ok, not really. I like summer, I think its nice, but I don’t love it. What I should have said is, I love summer food! [That’s more accurate.] Hot dogs, burgers, grilled veggies and the mack daddy of summer food – s’mores! When we lived in Michigan during the summer, we would have a fire and s’mores with family. I wish that we were able to have fires down here in Texas, but its too hot to even consider it most nights. So to curb my s’mores craving I created an indoor version – S’mores Brownie Bars!
Don’t they look delicious? And the best part – they are SO easy to make! I whipped up a pan during nap time and still had time to spare. But I cheated a little and used a brownie mix. [No shame in my s’mores making game!]

To make your own S’mores Brownie Bars you will need:
- 1 cup Graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 stick of butter
- Brownie mix – 1 egg, 1/3 cup oil, 2 tablespoon water
To start – melt your butter in the microwave. Add your graham cracker crumbs to the melted butter and mix until all the crumbs are covered. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a pan [I used a 9×9]. I put my crust in the freezer while I worked on the brownie mix so they firmed up before baking.
Add your brownie mix to the graham cracker crust and bake it for 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven. Once the brownies have set a little, remove from the oven and place your marshmallows on top. I just ripped mine in half and added them to the brownie layers. Bake for another 8 – 12 minutes.
Let them cool and cut into squares. While I was cutting them, chunks of toasted mallow fell off the side of the pan. And I ate it. And I have no shame because it was delicious.
These are hands down amazing. My husband agreed. My kids agree. I agree. [That’s all that matters, right?] My only question now is – is it acceptable to have s’mores for breakfast?
