S’MORES! Some Delicious S’mores Ideas


I’ve been thinking a lot about S’mores lately. My husband was begging to do a cook out and have a fire yesterday, with hot dogs (gross! but if you top them with guacamole, shredded monterrey jack or colby cheese and pico or salsa, and crushed tortilla chips they are actually pretty good), and why do I agree to do a campfire? Because that means S’mores! No it wasn’t quite warm enough to be outdoors roasting hot dogs and marshmallows but it made if feel like it was almost summer, so it was fun pretending. And I’ll endure through the cold if it means I get a perfectly golden brown marshmallow with a lightly crisp almost shell like exterior to cover a perfectly soft and melted marshmallow fluff center to go along with melted chocolate and anything else I see fit all sandwiched between two honey kissed graham crackers. I’ve imagined a few ideas of what I think would make an over the top S’more and just wanted to share since S’more season is just around the corner. Some of them will be more convenient made at home in your backyard fire pit vs taking all the ingredients camping. I haven’t tried all of them yet so let me know if you do and which you like. I’d also love to hear your ideas if you have more (because you can’t have too many). Now go and throw a S’mores party and show your friends what a S’more can really be :).

lemon meringue pie s'mores | Cooking Classy

Roasted vanilla marshmallow & graham cracker with:

  • lemon curd, homemade or storebought {Lemon Meringue Pie} (pictured)
  • blueberry or raspberry jam with whipped plain cream cheese
  • fresh apple slices and caramel
  • Nutella and banana
  • cinnamon graham, dulce de leche and bananas
  • melted caramel (with a little cream), toasted coconut and chocolate (Samoa, pictured above)
  • Ghirardelli caramel or raspberry filled chocolate squares
  • peanut butter or almond butter
  • chopped candy bars – especially Snickers or whole Reese’s
  • triple berry – fresh blueberries, raspberries and blackberries plus chocolate or white chocolate
  • roasted sweet potatoes slices
  • fresh mango slices
  • lime curd and shredded sweetened coconut
  • raspberry jam or raspberry curd and dark chocolate
  • Maldon sea salt or fleur de sel on the original
  • any kind of nut added to the original
  • strawberries, bananas, dark chocolate, caramel sauce, pecans/almonds {Ice Cream Sundae} (pictured)
  • toasted coconut with and macadamia nuts or pineapple
  • fresh strawberries and lemon curd {Strawberry Lemonade}
  • Andes Mints with chocolate graham crackers {Grasshopper}
  • chocolate orange pieces (these) or a little of orange zest over chocolate, with chocolate grahams
  • sandwich roasted vanilla marshmallows between two peanut butter, chocolate chip or chocolate cookies

This one you must try:

  • chocolate marshmallows, chocolate graham crackers and semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate {Chocolate Lovers S’more} (pictured). This would also be good with strawberries or raspberries. I used homemade chocolate marshmallows but you may be able to find the Jet Puffed chocolate marshmallows at the store if you don’t want to make them. I used this recipe here, I added an additional 2 Tbsp cocoa to the 1/4 cup (so 6 Tbsp total) then I also adjusted the coating to be 1/4 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup cornstarch and 2 Tbsp cocoa powder. They are amazing! I may have cut mine a bit too big, but I do like a lot of marshmallow inside of a s’more….

chocolate lovers s'mores - even non s'mores lovers will LOVE these! completely divine!


  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious: I’m not much of a smores person but now you have me craving every single one of these! April 22, 2013 at 11:15am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Glad to hear it :). I think any non-s’mores lover would love the chocolate version it is unbelievably good. April 22, 2013 at 4:16pm Reply

  • Quill: Those look delicious! Strawberries, hmmm…

    My mom always made them with Nilla wafers, which to me suit better than graham crackers because they don’t shatter. But to each their own, etc. April 22, 2013 at 12:24pm Reply

  • Kim: I love, love, love the idea of a lemon meringue smore! I don’t like regular smores, but I would love this one. Brilliant idea!

    P.S. Would it still be a smore if I used say a shortbread cookie instead of the graham cracker-I think it would be awesome! April 22, 2013 at 5:29pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: As long as it has the perfectly roasted marshmallow in the center I would still consider it a s’more :), the shortbread sounds delicious!! April 22, 2013 at 6:15pm Reply

      • Amy: Lately when we make s’mores we have used the Thanks-a-lot cookies from the Girl Scouts (shortbread cookie with chocolate on one side)! Definetly a must try! The chocolate is just right and melts perfectly…(sometimes the chuck of Hershey’s doesn’t melt)!! April 25, 2013 at 5:55am Reply

        • Jaclyn: Sounds delicious! I’m afraid for whatever reason I’ve missed the girl scout cookie sales…ahhhhh. Hopefully they show up soon and I didn’t really miss them. April 30, 2013 at 8:05pm Reply

          • Helen: Being in UK we can’t easily get graham crackers, so I tend to use digestives – and the chocolate covered ones are great too :) August 28, 2013 at 10:47am

    • Jaclyn: Yes you could definitely make homemade graham crackers, they’d probably be much better than what we have in the stores here in the US. Homemade is always better. May 3, 2013 at 11:51pm Reply

    • Beverley Bellard: @ Julie G: Plain Digestive biscuits are actually the closest thing to Graham crackers taste wise, though Digestives are a bit crumblier. Some type of plain biscuit like Rich Tea or shortbread would also work (I’m a British Expat). June 18, 2013 at 5:06pm Reply

We also had sliced bananas and loaded waffle cones with banana, mini mallows, and chocolate of choice… Wrap it in foil and toss it on the grate above the fire for a few minutes and you have melting delicious s’more in a cone.

    • Jaclyn: They are definitely best enjoyed right away as the marshmallows begin to set and become chewy once they rest, rather than being soft and gooey. July 17, 2013 at 9:38pm Reply

  • Rita Connelly: I, too, had been craving S’mores but it’s been too dry and windy to grill outdoors in Tucson these days.
    So I ‘roasted’ the marshmallows in my toaster oven with darn good results.
    I also used Hershey’s Dark Chocolate.
    Utterly yummy!
    My only regret is that I didn’t take photos. The s’mores went too fast.
    I ran out of chocolate before I ran out of marshmallows and graham crackers so I’m thinking of making Rice Krispie Treats. But because I don’t have any Rice Krispies in the house I’m going to try Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. If it work’s I’ll let you know; this time with pictures. July 23, 2013 at 12:20pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: When camping I use a heat proof bowl and melt it over a portable stove/grill over warm heat. When I’m home I just melt it in the microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stirring between. I used to just wish it would melt from the heat of the marshmallows but it would never happen for me so I just started melting it before roasting the marshmallows. Nutella is also great if you are looking for a cheat :). March 11, 2014 at 8:19pm Reply
