S’More Nutella Brownies

I have a slight addiction to Nutella. To the point where we cannot have it in the house, for fear of me kidnapping Tucker and holding him ransom until Charlie gives me the Nutella I had previously asked him to hide from me. Not that that ever happened. Or anything.

Anyway, World Nutella Day (February 5th) exists. It is a real thing. And I found myself completely Nutella-less on this day. It was, to put it lightly, a culinary tragedy. Luckily, I cannot be restrained to a single day, and decided to dream up a Nutella Recipe fit for a Queen and bake it on another day. Because in our household, every day is World Nutella Day.

The recipe turned out as I imagined. A crackpot of happiness, euphoria, and rainbows packaged into an edible square or rectangle. This is the Holy Grail y’all. The fountain of youth. I feel confidently about that. My dear friend Whitney was over and assisted in the photography. Try not to eat your computer screens.

my name is amanda…

… and I am a stress baker.

I am not talking about your usual here and there, oh lets make brownies… I am talking straight on… in the past week I have made four different type of baked goods and I don’t plan on stopping soon.

The Bar exam is literally eating away at my soul, and so the only way I feel human again is to make tasty treats and feed the people I love. And myself.

Another thing about me… I love S’Mores… in any form. Trader Joe’s has these little S’More bits that I will eat an entire box of without blinking. The combination to me is just genius. So today I was hardcore craving S’More cupcakes, but there was simply no time to get chocolate cake mix… but I happened to have some Ghirardelli brownie mix…

S’More Brownies (Amanda’s Version)


  • 8 T unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 c graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 T + 1 t granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Box Ghirardelli brownie mix (1/3 c veggie oil, 1/4 c water, 1 egg)
  • “Enough” mini marshmallows


  1. (Steps 1 & 2 taken from above linked blog) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 8×8-inch pan with foil so it hangs over the edges a bit. Spray with nonstick spray. (You can use 9×9-inch pan, but baking time might need slight decrease and your end result will be a thinner brownie).
  2. Prepare crust: In a medium bowl, mix butter with crumbs, sugar and salt. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Mix up brownie mix (so much faster).
  4. Pour into baked crust, bake according to box directions.
  5. After brownies are done sprinkle “enough” (to cover) mini marshmallows. Sprinkle with any extra graham cracker frosting. Broil for 3-6 minutes depending on oven.
  6. Try not to eat right away because it will BURN YOUR MOUTH OFF. Seriously, learn from my mistake
  7. Remove aluminum foil from pan and cut brownies (I waited a bit first).

These babies are EXACTLY what the doctor ordered – SO yummy and delicious. I hope you have reasons to make these other than stress-baking, but if not… these are the perfect cure!
