Chocolate Dessert? Yes, Please

If you are a chocolate lover, you are going to love these two desserts.

S'more Brownies


2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup butter
 6 tbsp cocoa powder
2 cups flour
2 tsp. vanilla
3 graham crackers, broken into small pieces
3 cups mini marshmallows
3 Hershey bars, broken into individual pieces


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer or in a mixing bowl, cream together sugar, butter, and cocoa powder. Add the eggs one at a time. Then add vanilla extract and flour, scraping the bowl throughout the mixing process.

Grease a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Pour prepared brownie batter into the pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 30 minutes.

remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle the marshmallows evenly over the baked brownies. Then sprinkle the graham cracker and chocolate bar pieces over the marshmallows. Place in the oven for two more minutes to allow the marshmallows to melt together.

Cool completely before serving.

Notes: If you are of the opinion that a regular s'mores could use more chocolate, then this is just the dessert for you. There is chocolate to spare in this dessert.

Gooey Chocolate Cookie Bars


1 pouch Betty Crocker double chocolate chunk cookie mix
Vegetable oil, water, and egg called for on cooki mix pound
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow creme
8 creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1/3 cup miniature candy-coated chocolate candies


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Make cookie mix as directed on package, using oil, water, and egg. Spread dough in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 10 minutes just until dough is set.

Meanwhile, heat jar of marshmallow creme in microwave uncovered on low 30 seconds; spread over partially baked crust. Sprinkle with chopped cookies and chocolate candies.

Bake 12-14 minutes longer or until marshmallows just begin to brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Makes 24 bars.

Recipe Notes: To cut bars easily, line bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan. Use foil to lift bars from pan, and pull foil from sides of bars before cutting.

Notes: These are really rich, so pace yourself! A little goes a long way in taking care of your sweet fix. Also, we used white chocolate chips in place of the M&Ms.

  1. The smores brownies were really good. I wasn't a fan of the others quite so much.
