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 :).

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!

    How did you get that perfect melted chocolate? My chocolate never melts that much, but I wish it did! Secrets, tips, advice?

      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 :).

    What kind of cracker are you using for the lemon meringue s’mores? It doesn’t look like traditional graham cracker.

    I make s’mores in my toaster oven with mini marshmallows and dark chocolate. Very yummy and a quick but satisfying snack.

      I did used the traditional graham cracker for the lemon meringue but you could definitely use any other kind you’d prefer. I love making the quick smores in the kitchen :).

    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.

    please let me know by email, thanks. is this something that has to be ate right away or can you make lots and keep for a few days ???

      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.
