Two years ago I shared a post packed with unique and creative s’mores ideas. Tasty, decadent s’mores that go beyond the three ingredient original s’more. I didn’t photograph very many of them so today I wanted to share those ideas again and show you what they’d look like, and remind you that you need to make them!
Chocolate Covered Strawberry S’more // grahams, milk or dark chocolate, fresh strawberries, vanilla marshmallow
I don’t think there’s a bigger s’mores lover out there than me, sorry guys I win (okay just kidding, but gimme top 10 at least). I’ve been making them since I was probably 4, back then with the help of my mom.
Early on I paid close attention at how to make the perfect s’more over the hot coals of a fire (big flames never work near as good), rotating the marshmallow at just the right time to get that perfectly golden brown exterior.
Now half the time I just make them over my stove top burner because I want to enjoy s’mores all year long, plus half the time in the summer I don’t want to build a fire just for a s’more. In my opinion the indoor ones taste basically the same, especially if you can toast them just right. It’s more about the fun of making them over a fire really. Although, I do love to make them in my house because I love that sweet aroma of a toasted marshmallows filling the air.
The possibilities with s’mores are endless. Yes of course the original is always amazing and I can never stop at just one, but if you want to try some of the best s’mores of your life and if you really want to impress then make these! And try all of them, but trust me you’ll have hard time picking a favorite.
A few other combinations I love not pictured here are chocolate graham, dark chocolate and chocolate marshmallow then cinnamon grahams, dulce de leche, bananas and vanilla marshmallow. If you are a bacon lover try it on the original s’more it adds a crispy, salty twist to it. I also like to add any kind of nut butter to s’mores (i.e. peanut butter) and the Ghirardelli filled chocolate squares work perfect for s’mores.
