Dessert Diva shares her Gooey S’mores Squares recipe


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Who doesn’t love a good ooey-gooey s’mores?

Dessert Diva Danette Randall stopped by News Channel 8 and showed Gayle and Evan how to make Gooey S’mores Squares, no campfire needed.


  • 1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs ( about 1 package of crackers)
  • 1 1/2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used a mix of semi-sweet, and dark)
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 20-22 large marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line a 9×9 inch square baking pan with foil, lightly grease foil with cooking spray.
  • In a small to medium bowl, combine graham crackers, brown sugar and melted butter. Toss until all the crumbs are covered. Press down evenly in prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just starting to turn brown, and you can smell it. Take out, and let cool.
  • In a medium bowl, add chocolate chips. In a small saucepan, bring the cream, liquid smoke, and salt to a small simmer, and pull off immediately. Pour over chocolate, and let sit 3-4 minutes. Begin stirring, bringing up from the bottom. It will eventually turn glossy, and well combined. Pour mixture over prepared, cooled crust. Put in refrigerator for 2-3 hours, or overnight.
  • Approximately an hour or so before serving, rip your marshmallows in half, and place ripped side down on top of chocolate.
  • Put under broiler, until marshmallows start to puff up, and turn golden brown. Don’t walk away from these, watch them so they don’t burn. Take out of oven. Let cool a little, and then return to refrigerator until chocolate firms back up.
  • Pull out of pan, using the foil, put on the counter, and using a long knife, cut into squares. You may want to dip in hot water before cutting to make it less sticky.
  • ENJOY!

Notes: If you don’t want to use liquid smoke, just replace with vanilla. I like these the day after too, even if the marshmallows aren’t as pretty.
