Box Oven S'mores Brownies - Secret Recipe Club

My assigned blog for this month's Secret Recipe Club is Angela's Kitchen.  Angela cooks gluten and dairy free.  If you are looking for a gluten or dairy free recipe, check out Angela's blog.  You'll be able to enjoy many of the same recipes, while following a gluten or dairy free diet.

I spent quite a bit of time on Angela's blog trying to decide what to make.   I really wanted to bake one of her great recipes but was concerned about the substitution of non gluten free products in her recipes.  After much deliberation, I settled on her Box Oven S'more Brownies but chose to make them in a regular oven.  If you're a camper or have kids this would be such a fun recipe to try.

Serves: 16 to 20

  • 1 gluten free box brownie mix (or homemade), batter made dairy free according to instructions
  • 2 cups gluten free mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup broken and crumbled gluten free graham crackers or gluten free sugar cones
  • 12″x8″ foil pan
  • oil for pan
  • Box oven
  1. Set up box oven. See this post ( for instructions. While charcoal is flaming and heating up, make gluten free brownie mix according to instructions on box.
  2. Oil foil pan. Pour batter into pan, patting out batter to cover the entire pan. Sprinkle crushed gluten free graham crackers evenly over batter, then add mini-marshmallows.
  3. When coals are ready, place brownies on cans in box oven. Set the box over brownies and allow to bake for 5 minutes longer than the longest bake time on the brownie batter box (in the case of Better Batter Brownie Mix, allow to bake for 30 minutes) before checking to see if brownie bars are done. Bars are done when bakes through in center and marshmallows have melted and browned slightly.
  4. Remove brownies from box oven and allow to cool before slicing.
  5. To bake these at home, bake in a 350 degree F oven for the shortest time on your baking mix box before checking for doneness.
