A crunchy, crispy butterscotch crust and a fudgy, decadent chocolate brownie filling, topped with a pillowy soft meringue topping! This Fudgy S’mores Brownie Pie is one of my favorite recipes from my brand new cookbook – Secret Layers Cakes!
I’ve got one amazing recipe for you guys today. This is easily one of the most sinfully decadent desserts I’ve made – a s’more in the form of a pie. But not just any pie, a fudgy brownie pie!
This Fudgy S’mores Brownie Pie comes straight from my Secret Layer Cakes cookbook (which is NOW IN STORES!!), and it’s one of my favorites from the book.
The secret layer in this fudgy s’mores brownie pie is the butterscotch graham cracker crust that I made instead of a regular graham cracker crust. And instead of a regular chocolate filling, I filled it with a super fudgy bittersweet chocolate brownie. Aaaand instead of a marshmallow topping, I made a pillowy soft meringue topping! All this comes together for a deliciously addictive and fabulous dessert that could serve a large crowd because this S’mores brownie pie is decadent!

This book has all dry measurements in grams and ounces because weighing ingredients is THE MOST ACCURATE WAY to get perfect, consistent results. It’s also the easiest and the least messy way to measure ingredients, since you don’t have to scoop and level stuff, you simply place a bowl on a scale and measure what you need, in one go. With digital scales so easily accessible and cheap, I think it’s an important tool for every baker, and in every kitchen.

S’mores Brownie Pie
Salted butterscotch Graham Cracker Crust
- 115 g / 4 oz unsalted butter
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 115 g / 4 oz brown sugar
- 142 g / 5 oz / 14–16 graham cracker squares
- 42 g / 1.5 oz, unsalted melted butter (3 tbsp)
Fudgy Brownie Filling
- 170 g / 6 oz bittersweet chocolate
- 170 g / 6 oz unsalted butter
- 212 g / 7.5 oz sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 115 g / 4 oz semisweet chocolate chips
- 115 g / 4 oz all purpose flour
- 3 egg whites at room temperature
- 150 g / 5.3 oz white sugar
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of cream of tartar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Salted butterscotch Graham Cracker Crust
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Melt the first measure of butter, salt and brown sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk to form a smooth butter-sugar mix. Let the mix come to a boil and let it boil over medium heat for 2–3 minutes.
- While the butter sugar mix is cooking, line a quarter sheet pan (9 x 13 inch) with parchment paper, and place the crackers in one layer to fit the pan.
- Pour the hot melted butter sugar mix evenly over the crackers (you can use a spatula to spread the mix evenly). Transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes (you should see bubbling along the edges of the pan). Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely until the toffee hardens. Break the butterscotch graham crackers into squares.
- Place these butterscotch graham crackers in a food processor and process the crackers into fine crumbs. Add the second lot of melted butter to the graham cracker crumbs and pulse to mix.
- Butter an 8-inch springform pan, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and dust the sides with flour. Press butterscotch graham cracker crumbs into the bottom of the 8-inch springform pan to form a crust. Freeze for about 30 minutes—1 hour to let the crust harden.
Fudgy Brownie Layer
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave in 30 second bursts (remember to stir in between to prevent the chocolate from burning). Let the chocolate butter mix cool down, while you get the rest of the ingredients ready.
- Add the sugar, salt and vanilla, and whisk to combine. Next, add the eggs—one egg at a time, whisking each one really well before adding the next. Add the flour and chocolate chips and fold it in until just combined. Pour the batter into the pan, over the frozen butterscotch graham cracker crust and bake the brownie layer in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. The brownie layer should still be fudgy and soft in the middle. Remove from the oven and let it cool down to room temperature, about 4 hours depending on the ambient temperature.
- Gently remove the brownie pie from the springform pan and chill in the fridge, covered, at least overnight (6 – 8 hours).
- Make the meringue topping just before serving the s’mores pie.
- Bring a little water to a boil in a saucepan. Lower the heat to bring it to a simmer.
- Combine the egg whites, sugar, salt and cream of tartar in a clean, dry metal bowl. Place the metal bowl over simmering water (be careful not to let the water mix with your egg whites), and whisk continuously to dissolve the sugar in the egg whites, about 5–10 minutes (you can check if the sugar has dissolved by rubbing some of the egg whites between your fingers—if the sugar has dissolved the egg whites will be smooth, if it feels gritty, it’s not there yet).
- When the sugar has completely dissolved, remove the egg whites from the double boiler and whisk them on high, using a whisk attachment (hand mixer or stand mixer)—until doubled in volume and the egg whites are thick and glossy, and the bowl is cool to the touch. Add the vanilla and whisk in for 1 minute. The meringue is now ready to be used immediately.
Serving the Pie
- Pile the meringue on top of the brownie (or you can pipe it instead), and use a blowtorch to caramelize the meringue. Alternatively, turn on your broiler and broil the meringue for a few minutes until the surface caramelizes.
- Serve immediately with chocolate sauce (optional).
