I’m not sure what it is about S’mores. The marshmallow, the graham cracker, the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar? Honestly, I’m not a big fan of graham crackers or marshmallows.

Let’s face it, graham crackers are boring all alone. They make a great base for things like cheesecake, personally, my favorite crust for any dessert.

Marshmallows, are really kinda boring just sitting there in the bag. I mean, you wouldn’t catch me just eating them straight out of the bag, not like say chocolate chips. They need to be toasted over a camp fire or melted down into rice Krispie Treats or stirred into a fudge recipe.

When you do use marshmallows and Graham crackers in a recipe, together with chocolate, something magic happens. It’s that S’mores magic. The perfect blending of flavors. Make it in cake form and you got an easy treat perfect for a rainy day or just because you want that campfire flavor without the fire or the camp.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing my S’mores donuts. I think your brownie cake looks delicious!

  3. I love s’mores, and baking them into brownies just makes them even better!

  4. Joan, I’m not a big fan of graham crackers either. That’s why I’m not crazy about making S’mores. But I love that you have a graham cracker crust for this cake! Probably the best use of graham crackers ever!

  5. I agree that graham crackers are boring by themselves, but I remember as a kid we would put butter on graham crackers as a dessert – now that sounds so weird. But I remember it being sooo good! Your cake looks amazing and a lot less messy than traditional smores :)
