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.

…and fun 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.

{yes, I have monogrammed spatulas.}

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:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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. 🙂

    Sally- I made this for a Pi Day party at work. It was such a hit! Everyone loved it and the presentation was beautiful. Sticky marshmallow fingers from serving the pie was SO worth it. Loved it, thanks!!

    • Sally on March 14, 2014 at 6:43 pm

      Happy it was a hit, Lisa! Thanks so much for reporting back.

  2. Hayley on May 25, 2014 at 6:29 pm

    I cannot wait to make this! I’ll be making it next week for my dad’s birthday (he likes pie, not cake)

  3. Clara on May 30, 2014 at 10:11 am

    I hope Jude’s feeling better. 🙁

    • Sally on May 30, 2014 at 11:15 am

      Thanks Clara! This was last year – and he is all healed up!

  4. Sydney on June 2, 2014 at 10:06 am

    I made this for the people I work with and they all loved it. It’s definitely one of my favorite recipes because I love anything s’mores and it’s so easy to make. I kind of went a little crazy with the marshmallows and had them overflowing on the pie, but it still looked amazing. Thank you so much for this recipe!

  5. kelly on June 13, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    Looks Amazing! I’m gonna HAVE to make it! 😉

  6. Janine on July 3, 2014 at 5:33 am

    can i use a springform pan instead of pie plate?

    • Sally on July 3, 2014 at 12:36 pm

      That should be fine.

  7. Alexis V. on July 4, 2014 at 1:36 pm

    I made this pie a couple of weeks ago and still can’t stop thinking about it! It was soooo good! Once it is chilled it cuts into beautiful slices and it tasted so dang good. If you’re a s’more lover, you’ve gotta try this.

  8. Hayley on July 15, 2014 at 10:48 am

    How many mini marshmallows would you suggest using? Based on the amount of regular sized marshmallows and the pictures, I would think about 2 cups but that could also be too many?

    • Sally on July 15, 2014 at 2:30 pm

      I’d say 1.5 – 2 cups.

  9. Tehila on July 18, 2014 at 12:54 am

    I just made this and it’s in the oven, baking is not forte, is the batter supposed to taste bitter or did i mess up? Anyone? Help!

  10. Mandy on September 3, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    I made this for my sister’s birthday dessert. It got a great reaction and I was told to keep the recipe! The only change I made was to use almond meal instead of the flour in the brownies. And I was even able to get the marshmallow top toasted like in the picture 🙂

  11. Yancey on September 13, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    I made this delicious dessert and everyone loved it. It was so good I almost like the silver off the fork and others were literally licking their plates.:)

  12. Regeena on November 21, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    Hi! 🙂 I’m just wondering, can I make this pie in a cake pan? I’m making this for my bestfriend’s birthday and that’s the only thing I have and pie pans in our country are sooo expensive. By the way, your creations are sooo gorgeous.

    • Sally on November 22, 2014 at 10:20 am

      yep that should be fine! make sure it is 2 inches deep.

  13. kes on December 5, 2014 at 4:55 am

    Hi Sally! Somehow after baking, the crust wasnt tough, it broke apart easily and the brownie wasnt stiff either, any idea why?

    • Wise Warrior on July 13, 2016 at 7:45 pm

      (Is not Sally but will reply anyhow)
      You may have needed more butter in the crust but most likely you forgot to REALLY pack it down into the pan. (did you remember to grease the pan? That usually helps keep things intact :P) and you may have not given it enough time in the oven. Hope this was helpful!

  14. Pam on April 12, 2015 at 11:49 pm

    Love your blog !! I am wondering if i could adapt this recipe and make it in a sheet pan. I would like to make it for about 60 people .
    Thanks ,
    Pam

    • Sally on April 13, 2015 at 9:42 am

      I’m sure you could, though the recipe would have to be doubled for a pan larger than 9×9.

  15. sonya on May 1, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    This caught my eye because there is a similar recipe at http://www.cookscountry.com for s’mores brownies that my husband loves, and i had just put it on my “to make soon” list 🙂 Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Alisa on May 7, 2015 at 12:23 pm

    I made two of these last night to take to a Teacher Appreciation luncheon, and this recipe is a new favorite! I needed a dessert that could be dropped off in the morning and sit at room temp until lunch, and this is perfect. Using the microwave to melt the butter let me mix two pies and get them in the oven in 15 mins. Baking took only 30 mins more. I did short cut and use purchased graham crusts because it was late and I was tired, but I used high quality Ghirardelli cocoa to make up for it. A double recipe made enough to fill two of the new larger Keebler graham crusts, plus two of the mini crusts for “sampling”. I left a 3/4″ gap between the edge of the crust and the outermost marshmallows, and they spread almost, but not quite to the edge allowing me to snap on the transport covers easily with no mess. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. It will be accompanying me to many summer picnics and parties!

  17. Erica on May 10, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    Hi Sally, my husband made this for me for Mothers Day at my request :). He followed the directions exactly but the brownie layer did not set up, it was still very gooey. Did it need to be baked longer or add a bit more flour? We live at 4000 feet, not sure if that makes a difference. We still ate it and it was yummy but I am wanting to try it again and not sure what to do differently.

    • Sally on May 11, 2015 at 8:02 am

      Hi Erica! Happy belated Mother’s Day. What a sweet dessert to enjoy! It sounds like the brownie filling wasn’t baked all the way through. Your altitude definitely could play part in that too. I suggest baking it for a little longer. If you find the edges of the crust/brownie are baking too quickly, lower the oven rack and use a pie crust shield.

  18. Lynn on May 21, 2015 at 12:09 pm

    Did you pre-bake the crust for this pie, per your instructions on making a graham cracker crust?

    • Sally on May 22, 2015 at 9:34 am

      In this recipe, the crust does not need to be pre-baked. Only pre-bake the crust if the recipe calls for it.

  19. Amy on May 21, 2015 at 11:04 pm

    I want to make this for a Memorial Day picnic on Monday, but am going out of town early Saturday afternoon and won’t be back until about an hour before the picnic!! Would it be better to bake this on Saturday before I leave or to make it and refrigerate it until Monday and pop it in the oven when I get home?

    • Sally on May 22, 2015 at 9:28 am

      It is so much better freshly baked, Amy. You can assemble it and bake it on Monday right before the picnic.

  20. Jill on May 24, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    I made this today for Memorial Day dessert and it was A-mazing!!!! Everyone loved it and it was the hit of the whole dinner. I will definitely be making this again. A unique twist on classic s’mores…thanks for the great recipe!

  21. Heather on May 26, 2015 at 1:14 am

    I made this for Memorial Day weekend and it was excellent. Very rich so don’t cut the pieces too large. I used large marshmallows but cut them in half and that seemed like a good marshmallow amount. I made the pie earlier in the day but waited to do the marshmallows right before I served it.

    Thanks for another great recipe!

  22. Amy on July 15, 2015 at 8:32 am

    This was a fun & easy pie to make! This was the monthly treat that my 6 year old friend & I made yesterday – perfect for summer. Her eyes got SO big when she peered into the oven door during the minute of broiling — like a kid on Christmas Eve. She was extremely concerned they would be “too toasty” – but, they were perfect. Thanks for another awesome recipe.

  23. Cassie on July 30, 2015 at 9:30 pm

    I made the pie according to the printable directions and the chocolate layer turned out very undercooked.  It probably needed at least 10 additional minutes of cooking. The printable recipe did not mention checking for doneness woth a toothpick.  Maybe it would help if that was addded. 

    Other than the pie being raw the flavor was good.

    • mcoffeesnob on September 14, 2015 at 10:15 pm

      Hi!  
      I too had to cook this longer.  Probably twice the time, and the marshmallows too…they were taking so long I turned up the oven to 375.  🙂

      Smells delightful and I’m sure it will be a hit!

  24. Jennifer on August 13, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    This recipe caught my eye because I have a 13yr old who LOVES smores! She also really loves my baked goodies. I followed the directions “to the T” and somehow, things didn’t turn out the way you explained they would. The crust is mushy and the batter was as funny as the box kind. It also took well past 28 minutes to bake. Literally, I’m talking an hour or more. Could you please try to help me figure out what I did or didn’t do right? Thanks! 

  25. Mabel on September 6, 2015 at 11:01 pm

    This is hands down the most delicious thing I have ever made.

    I’ve made it 2 or 3 times now, and every time I’m afraid that I’m overbaking the brownie, but it always comes out just as rich and fudgey as before. The crust is buttery and thick, and with that decadent, chocolatey brownie (the best recipe I’ve found by far) and gooey toasted marshmallow on top, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My family found that it tasted best after being heated up in the microwave for 30-60 seconds, because I didn’t toast my marshmallows as much as yours and nuking it makes it extra gooey and that’s always a good thing. 😀 It was also delicious with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. ;D

    Just wanted to thank you again for making such awesome, no-fail recipe – you are my go-to when I’m looking for something to bake. (There’s almost too many choices. 😀 My to-bake list is longer than the Great Wall of China.)

    • Sally on September 7, 2015 at 7:17 am

      Thank you so much for reporting back, Mabel! Please let me know more recipes you try! I love hearing about it.

  26. Jenny B on October 21, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    Made this exactly according to directions and the brownie part was completely raw– not gooey– raw. Too bad because it looked like a really fun pie!

  27. Jennifer B. on October 21, 2015 at 9:36 pm

    Can I use a 13×9 inch glass baking dish? If so, should I double the ingredients?

  28. Brittney on November 6, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    I tried this and love it! A regular in my house for sure! Featured it herehttp://www.eversobritty.com/happy-weekend-5-things-i-love-3/

  29. Ginger on December 23, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    Thank you for the measuring cup tip!!! Worked awesome. …

    Hi Sally!! I’m in love with your blog. Never has it happened before that a recipe works so well! And all of yours do! Thank you so much 🙂
