S’mores Brownie Pie.

S'mores Brownie Pie is a new favorite! Brownies will never be the same again.

It’s high time I baked a pie. But this isn’t your regular pie. Step aside apples, blueberries, pumpkin, and lemon meringue… pie has a new filling in town. And it sure is fit for a king (or queen).

Fudgy homemade brownies with gooey toasted marshmallows piled high inside a thick graham cracker crust (yep, that’s homemade too). Totally diet-friendly, right?!  And trust me, it’s actually pretty easy to make. And even easier to eat.

Love the marshmallow goo!

S'mores Brownie Pie is a new favorite! Brownies will never be the same again.

I made this pie over the weekend for no reason at all. Perhaps it was me craving some summer sunshine, campfires, and chocolate all at once. Or perhaps it was because s’mores are simply the best dessert on earth. And I say that with an archive of over 350 dessert recipes. Yep, s’mores will always win. Well, sometimes.

While this pie may not be as easy as a traditional s’more, it’s quite honestly not that difficult to prepare. I made everything from scratch, except for the marshmallows. Homemade goodies just taste better than those chemical-laden storebought ingredients. Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of premixed ingredients, but with a recipe this easy – there’s simply no need for it.

The recipe starts with a simple from-scratch graham cracker crust. Want to know why this crust is better than storebought? It’s thicker! It has much more body. It’s nutty, buttery, and is not overly sweet like what you find at the store. Three ingredients: 10 full-size crushed graham crackers (approx 1.5 cups), 6 Tablespoons melted butter, and 1/3 cup of sugar. I love making graham cracker crusts because they are fool-proof and no-fuss compared to a traditional pie crust.

Next, make your brownie batter. The brownie batter is quite thick, so don’t be alarmed when you are mixing it. It had been a few months since I last made them and I forgot how thick the batter is – it is almost like fudge consistency.  And that’s exactly how it bakes up – fudgy and unbelievably rich. The best brownie I’ve ever had. The brownie batter requires no mixer and took me less than 5 minutes to make.

Tastier than a box mix, for sure.

Bake the brownie pie for about 28 minutes. Test it with a toothpick inserted in the center. You want it to come out with a few moist crumbs. You’re going to top it with marshmallows and stick it back into the oven for about 3 minutes. My marshmallows weren’t browning quick enough, so I turned on the broiler for an additional 1 minute. That got them nice and toasty much quicker.

Toasted marshmallow is one of the best flavors – ever. Who’s with me?

Allow it to cool to room temperature before slicing. Which will feel like a lifetime, trust me.

Any leftovers can be reheated for about 30 seconds in the microwave. And no, you probably won’t have any leftovers like we did. Only 2 people in this house! But I loved the leftover slices so much – a quick rotation in the microwave made the marshmallows puffy and even more gooey. So tasty.

When I posted a teaser photo of this pie on Instagram this weekend, you all got so excited! I’m glad to share it with you today, I know it’s going to be a hit at summer parties and get togethers. How can you resist?

S'mores Brownie Pie

Makes 8-10 servings.

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 10 full-sheet graham crackers (or 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs)
  • 6 Tablespoons (90g) melted unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup (65g) granulated sugar

Brownies

  • 10 Tablespoons (150g) unsalted butter
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (250g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons (74g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, cold
  • 1/2 cup (62g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
  • 25 large marshmallows (1/2 of a standard package or use mini marshmallows)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F degrees.

Make the crust: Using a food processor or blender, pulverize the graham crackers into a fine crumb. Pour into a medium bowl and mix with melted butter and sugar. Press into an ungreased 8-inch or 9-inch pie dish. Set aside.

Make the brownies: Melt the butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large bowl in the microwave. Melt in 30 second increments and stir after each time until the butter is completely melted. The mixture will look gritty. Set aside for a few minutes as you get the other ingredients ready. You don’t want the mixture to be piping hot.

Stir in the vanilla extract. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring after each addition. The batter will be thick and look shiny. Add the flour, beating with a whisk until fully combined. Try not to overmix the batter at this point. Spoon into crust.

Bake for 28 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with marshmallows. Return to the oven and continue to bake for an additional 3 minutes to melt the marshmallows. If the marshmallows aren't toasted, turn on your broiler for 1 minute. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature before slicing. Run a very sharp knife under warm water when slicing; it helps slice neat pieces.

Pie tastes best at room temperature or reheated the day it is made. Any leftover slices should be heated for about 30 seconds in the microwave. Store pie at room temperature for up to 7 days. Do not freeze.

Recipe Notes:

*For ease, you can use a box brownie mix instead to fill 1 pie!

Q: How was your Monday? Jude is feeling better from his tumor surgery last week, but still needs 24/7 attention. A gray, gloomy day forced me into the kitchen to bake cookies this afternoon. Maybe I should make Jude dog biscuits to help him feel better. 🙂

  1. I love the idea of making this pie! 

    Would anything in the recipe need to be adjusted if I made them in the “mini format” like your mini key lime pies?

  2. Made this pie – five stars! 

  3. I can’t see the recipe for the brownie part. Anyone care to share?

  4. Great recipe, however I also had trouble with my brownie. Followed directions exactly and it was very underdone ! Had to cook for 15 more minutes :-/ 

  5. I loved it but i have a suggestion that you can do it in a muffin cup! i did it and it tasted really good!

  6. This is so great! It looks so good! we used 1/8 cup of salt

  7. WARNING
    DO NOT be dumb like I was and forget to watch the marshmallows. I am new to cooking and overlooked the fact that an oven has the same effect as a fire *Face palm*. It didn’t take much time being ignored before all the marshmallows caught a blaze in our oven.. Oops.. But good news is that no one was hurt, no one was mad at me, the house is 100% intact AND THE PIE WAS TOTALLY FINE. Once i scraped off the top, there was a thin layer of melted marshmallow that kept the brownie and ghramcrackers safe. I simply re’ did the top (sitting by the oven watching it) and it turned out perfect!!

    I used boxed brownie mix and at first it wasn’t cooking all of the way though, but if it isn’t now it never will be lol <3

  8. I made this today, in a glass pyrex dish, my oven is tested to temp with a separate oven thermometer, and was preheated., the crust and dish were still warm when filled. I baked it for 30 min…..and unfortunately I did not test…….it did not bake. I am an experienced baker
    ( sea level) mmmmm. It would have needed at least 10 more minutes. Good ideas
    here, like making this in muffin cups……will try this again with some tweaks……
