These rich, chewy S’mores Swirled Blondies are loaded with marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers. So buttery, soft, and delicious…you are going to fall in love with these easy blonde brownies.
So right now, I’m feeling torn between wanting all things fall and wanting summer to stick around longer. I have been holding off on baking any fall treats…until now.
I’m blaming it on the pumpkin cream cold brew that I had at Starbucks yesterday. It totally put me into fall mode! I came home and pulled out some of our fall decorations.
The problem is that we live in Florida, and it is still 90 degrees outside. It’s a little hard to get into the fall spirit when it is still summer outside.
So, since we are still in full blown summer season here, I decided to bake s’mores blondies. I changed up these M&M Blonde Brownies by adding lots of chocolate and marshmallow goodness. S’mores treats are always a good idea!
Holy cow! That was a terribly, no good, awesome, incredible idea!!!!! Awesome because they tasted amazing! No good because I couldn’t stop snacking on them.
These swirled blondies had to leave our house right away. I have started giving away some of the treats I bake to friends in our town because I can’t be trusted around them.
I want to keep eating healthy, but then I bake things like this, and all that resolve goes out the window. It’s a daily struggle!
What is the difference between blondies and brownies?
Blondies and brownies do have a few things in common. Both are made with flour, eggs, sugar, and butter. And they are both cut into bar shapes.
The major difference is in the color and a few different ingredients.
- Brownies are made with cocoa powder and are chocolate based. They are more of a cross between a cake and a cookie.
- Blondies are made with brown sugar and are vanilla based. They are chewy and have a sweet butterscotch flavor.
Which one would you choose if a plate of brownies and blondies were sitting in front of you? Honestly, I would probably choose both. I have equal love for a decadent fudgy brownie and chewy rich blondie.
How to make S’mores Swirled Blondies:
Beat the butter and sugar just until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix again.
Add the flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until a soft batter forms. Stir graham cracker chunks and chocolate chips gently into the batter.
Spread half the cookie batter in a greased 9×13 pan. Drop spoonfuls of marshmallow cream on top of the batter. Spread it out with a spatula.
Drop the rest of the batter by spoonfuls on top of the marshmallow. Try to spread it out as much as you can and bake the blondies.
When the swirled blondies come out of the oven, sprinkle the top with a few more chocolate chips. It’s optional, but I think it makes them look better.
