S’mores Bread

Lots of people think my husband must be spoiled by desserts.
After all, our house is overflowing with them on an almost daily basis.
But, in reality, my husband isn’t super impressed with my experimental desserts like Deep Fried Cadbury Eggs, Monster Cookie Dough Dip, or Red Velvet Pancakes.
All the man really wants out of his dessert life is a decent chocolate chip cookie and a good slice of lemon pie every once in a while.
That being said, he is completely smitten with this bread.
He’s been begging me for weeks to make it again.
How could I say no?
You’ll enjoy it too, I promise.
Don’t let the number of steps scare you– it’s not as intense as it looks 🙂
And, besides, it’s totally worth it.
S’mores Bread
Recipe Adapted from the Gingered Whisk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp AP flour
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp. dry yeast
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 6 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of miniature marshmallows + 8 tbsp water
  • 9 whole graham crackers, crushed + 4 tbsp melted butter
  1. Proof the yeast by combining the warm water, 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp AP flour, and 1 tbsp. dry yeast in a small bowl. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, until foamy.
  2. Microwave the milk for about 90 seconds. Pour milk into the bowl of a stand mixer.
  3. Add the sugar, salt, eggs, and butter into the bowl and mix with paddle attachment.
  4. Gradually add in the flour until dough is pulling from the sides of the bowl.
  5. Divide the dough evenly into two balls and place each in a well greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled, about an hour and a half.
  6. Meanwhile, prep a work area by clearing your kitchen table and cover it with a clean fitted sheet. Lightly flour the surface.
(from this point on, repeat instructions for each loaf)

7. Once dough has risen, turn it out onto your floured sheet. Roll the dough from the center outward until it’s so thin you can see through the dough to the pattern on the sheet.

8. In one bowl (or in a ziptop bag) combine the graham cracker crumbs and butter. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together the marshmallows and water. Melt in the microwave (about 90 seconds), whisk until smooth. Set aside.
9. Spread the chocolate chips, melted marshmallow (1/2 of the bowl per loaf), and crushed graham crackers (half of the crumbs per loaf) evenly over the dough.
10. Gently roll the dough into a long rope (the way you would roll up cinnamon roll dough).

    11. Coil the rope into a parchment lined bread pan or 8×8 baking dish. Brush the top with milk.
    12. Bake at 350º for 15 minutes, and then decrease temperature to 300º and bake for another 45    minutes. I baked the two loaves at the same time with no problem.
    13. Optional: brush the top of the bread with a powdered sugar-milk glaze (yum!).

    1. I never thought to make bread in an 8×8. That’s such a handy tip! Thank you. I linked my buttons for Must Try Mondays and Pinterest Favorites on your linky page. So, now you can remove the My Favorite Finds ones if you want, so they’re replaced with the more specific ones. Have a great weekend!

    2. Great funny post, and you are SO right about the name of this bread and about S’mores. 🙂 I’ve had the traditional version of this bread with walnuts and it was so good. Thank you for linking at Joy of Desserts.

    3. OK, just let this sink in….
