S’mores Brownie Pie

S’mores on top of a brownie pie – no campfire required!

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.

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?

Description

S’mores on top of a brownie pie – no campfire required!


Ingredients

Crust

  • 10 full-sheet graham crackers (or 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs)
  • 6 Tablespoons (90g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 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 pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, cold
  • 1/2 cup (62g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 25 large marshmallows (1/2 of a standard package or use mini marshmallows)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C).
  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.

Notes

  1. Brownie Mix: For ease, you can use a box brownie mix instead to fill 1 pie.
  2. Recipe adapted from The S’mores Cookbook.

  1. Oh yes – nothing beats s’mores. This would be so fun to bring to a summer barbecue, and since it’s summer year-round here, it seems like I should be making this stat!

    1. I am envious of the summer weather! It’s cold and rainy here lately. 🙁 Which is why I needed this pie, Jess!

  2. I had a phase of making this pie. It was so nice. Yours looks amazing with the marshmallows on top, great idea. Try putting pear or cherry on the crust before the filling. A dash of amaretto in the mix is amazing.

  3. Wow, I think these are some of your best photographs yet! They belong in a magazine! The individual crumbs are visible, the marshmallow looks perfectly gooey, and the browned top is beautiful. I’m much more of a pie person than cake person, but crumb crusts are a must…I don’t like pastry, so I always do graham crackers or vanilla wafers or something. This looks so wonderful for summer! Sorry you had bad weather and have a recuperating dog on your hands, but I hope your Tuesday is great! 😀

    1. Caley, I think you are the first person to read and comment about Jude’s recovery! It has been quite the challenge babysitting him – he is usually so low maintence. Thank you for the compliments on my photography for these! I just bought a giant reflector and it’s been helping with my lighting/shadows.

  4. I’ll never be able to look at a s’more the same way again. This pie is making my mouth water.

  5. Oooooohhhhh! Myyyyyyy. GOSH. This looks absolutely amazing!!! I hate to say I might have to wait on a special occasion to make this- but I might break that rule… This looks ridiculously delicious! Need to try soon!

  6. What a fun pie! And a great alternative to those of us (ahem) who aren’t very outdoorsy. I like this indoor method of s’mores much, much better!

  7. This pie is absolutely breathtaking! I love the pattern that the marshmallows create!

  8. You can never go wrong with s’mores anything! Especially this time of year. This is perfect for those rainy nights when a fire just ain’t gonna happen!

  9. Cakes and pies, two things I definitely do not make enough of. I love that this is a brownie pie, it looks better than the other chocolate cream based s’mores pies I’ve seen!

    1. I was going to do a pudding pie of sort but was inspired to go the extra mile and make it ALL brownie 🙂 Thanks Erin!

  10. I just made this pie, and I’m not sure there’s going to be any leftovers for my husband! LOL Oh wow… really wonderful! Thanks Sally 😀

      1. I had everything in my cupboard already, so I HAD to make it LOL It was very quick and easy. You were also right about how hard it is waiting for it to cool off 😉

  11. Oh gosh Liz! Nothing compares to a homemade brownie. And this recipe is SO easy to make. You have to try them from scratch.

  12. I’m so beyond obsessed with this!! I just had some s’mores ice cream lately and it was like pretty much the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to recreate the memory with this gorgeous pie!

  13. I’m going to a get-together with “camping food” as the theme…I think I’ll make this!!

  14. Who needs traditional pie when you can have this!!?? Also, who needs to camp when you can have s’mores at home…and on a brownie??! 🙂

  15. YESSSSSSS. Now all I need is an excuse to try this. Also, I am thinking of a variation using chocolate graham crackers and a blondie or chocolate chip cookie filling…

      1. Haha, thanks! I love s’more stuff. One summer I made those brownie bars with marshmallows and chocolate-peanut butter-rice crispie topping, except instead of brownies as the bottom layer, I did graham bar cookies. It was delightful.

      2. So a graham cracker cookie base, topped with chocolate peanut butter rice krispies, topped with marshmallows? That sounds incredible!

      3. Other way around… base topped with mallows, then topped with pb/chocolate/cripies. Essentially I made these:

        ….with this base instead of brownie base:

        YUM!

  16. Wow, this pie looks like summer to me! I am glad I read your blog at work today (shh!) because if my kids saw this pie they’d be bugging me to make it…TODAY! They are huge s’mores fans.

    Hope your pooch feels better soon. <3

    1. Thanks Anna! And yes, this is a hit with kiddos too. Thanks for the well wishes for Jude. He is feeling a bit better today!

  17. How pretty are those toasty marshmallows?? I love that you can get the deliciousness of s’mores with this pie, but not the gooey mess all over your hands! There is a place in NYC that has a toasted marshmallow milkshake – you would love it!! PS – love the monogrammed spatula!

    1. Thanks Cate – you are the first person to comment on the spatula! I love it. They make wonderful gifts!

  18. I am in LOVE with this idea – smores, brownie, pie …all my faves rolled into one amazing treat!

  19. Next time I’m craving S’mores I’m definitely making this pie! It would be perfect for dessert outside with friends around a campfire! 🙂
