Campfire Brownies

April 21, 2014

Summer is nearing and with that comes thoughts of vacations, getaways, and fun in the warm weather. I’m telling you, I live in a crazy hot city, but summer is my favorite time of the year. Light weight skirts, maxi dresses, and sandals make me love getting dressed every day. I crave summer all year and when it’s finally here I’m a very happy lady.

I look forward to the long nights that summer brings and that means lighting up the fire pits, bringing out the lawn chairs and hanging out with family and friends. And of course, if you’re going to make an outdoor fire, you might as well make s’mores too!

I thought to help us all get in the summer mood, it would be fun to make a dessert that had us smelling that bonfire! These campfire brownies will satisfy your s’mores craving and will also have you looking forward to the gooey snack of marshmallows melted with chocolate.

If you’re ready for summer, then you’re ready for these Campfire Brownies!

Campfire Brownies


2 cups of sugar
1 ½ sticks of butter, melted
½ tsp salt
3 eggs
1 cup of cocoa powder
1 cup flour
2 handfuls of mini marshmallows
9 Fun Size Hershey’s candy bars
3 full size graham crackers, each broken into their individual rectangles (so about 12 rectangles)
Small handful of chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9X9 baking pan.

In a bowl mix together the sugar, butter, and salt. Using a whisk, mix the eggs in 1 at a time. Mix in the cocoa powder and flour and a handful of mini marshmallows.

Pour the mix into the baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until cooked. Let cool.

After brownies have cooled, cut into individual squares.

Using a lighter, roast the marshmallows until you get your desired color. I did this by laying the marshmallows all on a plate and continually ran the lighter over the marshmallows until they browned.

Press a graham cracker and a fun size Hershey’s bar into the top of the brownie (make sure your

brownies are cool or they will melt your candy bars!).

Melt the chocolate chips (you’ll be using this like a glue for the marshmallows).

Use a small spoonful of your melted chocolate on top of each brownie and then place about 5 roasted marshmallows on top of the chocolate.

Allow the chocolate to set, and then serve your summer time treat!
