S’mores Brownies – Just As Delicious But Without The Mess
I adore s&rsquomores. I could eat s&rsquomores in just about any form &ndash chocolate bark s&rsquomores, s&rsquomores cookies, s&rsquomores stuffed strawberries, s&rsquomores cake &ndash the list goes on. So of course I had to make s&rsquomores brownies. And oh my word are they delicious.
S&rsquomores are best when you&rsquore sitting around a campfire with a freshly roasted marshmallow and the chocolate is melting over your fingers as you slurp up the delicious mess.
Unfortunately, I don&rsquot make campfires nightly. And honestly, I don&rsquot love messes. S&rsquomores created in brownie form now that&rsquos brilliant.
These s&rsquomores brownies have the slightly crunchy graham cracker crust you want. The fudgy brownies satisfies that rich middle layer, and marshmallow fluff baked into the brownie batter? Just pass the plate already!
Of course you hear s&rsquomores brownies from scratch and run in the opposite direction, thinking about the work involved. Stop! Come back.
The added deliciousness doesn&rsquot add much work, and the flavor makes everything worthwhile. I make homemade marshmallow fluff, but feel free to use store bought. Technically, you could use a brownie mix instead, too, but making them from scratch is quick and easy.
Use a box mix to make the best brownies ever!
So, grab a box of brownie mix and add my signature secret (not so secret anymore) ingredients, and you will instantly become the best brownie maker people know. You will quickly become the envy of the class mother, every soccer mom around, and the house that every kid wants to have a play date at. And if you make them for your boo, he will very soon be down on bended knee asking you to spend the rest of your life with him. Ok…I may have gotten a little out of control on the last one and I certainly can’t make any promises, but hey, what do you have to lose?
Is Hershey&rsquos Cocoa Keto-Friendly?
If you are wondering if Hershey&rsquos cocoa powder is keto-friendly, you can be sure it is.
Great news, right?! Cocoa powder has no sweeteners and can, therefore, be used in keto baking . This means you can absolutely use Hershey&rsquos cocoa powder while doing keto!
Let&rsquos start off by saying that my love for Hershey&rsquos cocoa powder is two-fold. First, it&rsquos super easy to use AND second, it gives a rich, decadent chocolate flavor.
I can&rsquot say for sure, but I&rsquom pretty sure that the recipe on the back of the Hershey&rsquos cocoa box was the first chocolate cake my mom (Hilda) made way back when. And she hasn&rsquot stopped making it since!
Now, don&rsquot get me wrong I know that there are some fancier, new brands of cocoa powder out there. But, Hershey&rsquos brand has been a staple in my pantry always and has never disappointed me. Not once!
It&rsquos the perfect cocoa powder for all your chocolate keto needs!
"Love this recipe for an easy tzatziki. I don’t salt my cucumber, instead I grate and squeeze them in a dish towel to remove all the liquid. I just mix everything in one bowl and refrigerate for a while. Easy to adjust this to taste.""Love this recipe. Simple and delicious. I like to cook up the bacon first then caramelize the onion before adding them to the Crock Pot. This recipe is easy to alter and make your own. It's one of my go-to soups for the chillier months."

Cooking Tips & Tricks for Keto Peanut Butter Brownies
- Batter will be thick so be sure to spread evenly in baking pan
- Ensure butter has cooled for a few minutes before adding eggs
- Store the brownies? Brownies keep well for a 3-5 days in an airtight container
- Can I freeze brownies? Either freeze in an airtight container or wrap individually in cling film for a slightly fresher result and to avoid freezer burn. While it’s a bit more effort to freeze wrapped, they make a great grab and go snack from the freezer when you’re rushing out the door. The brownies will freeze well for up to 3 months.
- Burnt brownies? Use a smaller tray to make a thicker brownie and reduce the temperature.
- When are brownies cooked? Brownies are done when edges start to look dry
- Too sweet? If you would like them to be less sweet, reduce the sweetener to 1/4 cup
- Want more chocolate? Don’t we all… stir some sugar-free chocolate chips through the batter (or 85-90% cocoa dark chocolate chopped up finely).
