Ultimate Smore's Brownie

Who doesn't love a good brownie? Who doesn't love s'mores? What about salted caramel? How about combining all three? First you start by lining a 9x13 pan with foil with the foil hanging over the edges. Spray the foil with non stick spray.

Make the graham cracker crust and pack it into the lined pan. Bake the graham cracker crust.

While the crust is baking mix the brownie mix according to directions on the package. Pour the brownie mix into the baked graham cracker crust.

Bake brownies according to directions on box. Take out of oven and layer the brownies with chocolate chips and marshmallows. 

Turn on top broiler. Broil the brownies for up to two minutes. DO NOT walk away from them. Watch the marshmallow brown in the oven. Take out when they are golden brown.

Let the brownies cool on a cooling rack. Using the foil, take the brownies out of pan and place on a cutting board. With a wet knife cut the brownies. Re wet the knife in between cutting. This will help prevent sticking and make a cleaner cut. When ready to serve, drizzle with a salted caramel sauce. 

Make sure to have a glass of milk handy with this very rich dessert! Enjoy! 

Ultimate Smore’s Brownies
By Susan Johnson

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch fine salt

Favorite Store bought brownie mix
1 cup chocolate chips
5-10 ounces of small marshmallows

Salted Caramel Sauce:
Follow recipe here or
Caramel Sauce from store
1 1/2 tsp salt

  1. If making the salted caramel sauce from either scratch or by simply adding salt to a pre made sauce do so now.
  2. Heat oven according to directions on package of brownie mix. Line a 9x13 pan with foil so it hangs over the edges by about an inch.
  3. For the Crust: spray foil with cooking spray. Stir the butter together with the crumbs, sugar, and salt into a medium bowl. Press the crumb mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden brown, about 15 to 20  minutes. 
  4.  Mix the brownies according to directions according to package.
  5. Pour brownie mix onto the baked graham cracker crust. Bake according to directions on the brownie mix. 
  6. Remove from the oven and carefully position a rack about 6 inches from the top broiler. Turn top broiler on. Then layer the chocolate chips and marshmallow on top of the brownies. Toast the marshmallows under the broiler until golden brown. Keep an eye on them, they can go really quick, only about a minute and a half. 
  7. Cool brownies on a cooling rack.
  8. Gently remove the brownies from the pan using the foil and place on a cutting board. 
  9. Carefully separate any marshmallows from the foil and fold the foil away. 
  10. Wet your knife by running it under the sink. Cut the brownies, wetting the knife in between cuts to prevent sticking and to help make a clean cut.
  11. When serving drizzle the salted caramel sauce on top of the brownies. 
  12. Enjoy with a glass of milk!
