How To Make The Perfect S’mores

Ahh..the age-old question, How To Make The Perfect S’mores?  This is a question that has been around probably as long as S’mores themselves. Is the marshmallow burnt or not burnt, dark or milk chocolate, and cookie or graham cracker.  Sure you have the basic S’more with chocolate, graham cracker, and toasted or burnt marshmallow. But, there are certainly some other versions that shouldn’t be left out and if you haven’t tried them, well, we recommend that you certainly do!


Peanut Butter Cup S’mores

These are amazing!  Instead of plain chocolate, use peanut butter cups instead. Why? Have you ever met a Peanut Butter cup that wasn’t tasty?  Go ahead, try it, roast your marshmallow to your perfection and place it between two graham crackers. Yum!!

Don’t have peanut butter cups?  What about just peanut butter, this will add that nutty goodness with the layer of chocolate, and marshmallow.  And, it gives the treat a little protein boost for those with sugar issues.


Hazelnut Spread S’mores

Have you tried the hazelnut spreads?  The nutty flavor to the chocolate is oh so yummy.  Why not put it on your s’more instead of chocolate bars.  After all, it is good all on its own. And, we won’t ever tell you how to toast or burn your marshmallow, to each their own on that one!

Indoor S’mores

Indoor s’mores are smores made on the stove or over a candle.  Some are adventurous enough and use the microwave as well. However, this can end up being a rather sticky situation.  Marshmallows tend to explode and then you have marshmallow fluff all over.

A great way to make indoor smores is in the oven as well.  Lay the graham cracker on the cookie sheet with the chocolate piece on top and bake until the marshmallows are a golden brown.  

Or use alcohol campfires inside!  This is a great way to get your camping fix without going outdoors.

And, if you really like S’mores they even have kits you can purchase to make them indoors.  Most people use the other above mentions, however, it is something that does exist!

At any rate, if you are attempting S’mores indoors be sure to do this with caution.  If you have flames involved have a fire extinguisher nearby. And, using other methods, watch the marshmallows.  Exploding marshmallows is not fun to clean up or easy for that matter.



People love the cookies the chocolate, coconut, and caramel over graham cracker cookie.  Why not replicate that with a roasted marshmallow addition. Get caramel filled chocolate, added toasted coconut and a roasted marshmallow for an added yum.  


Candied Bacon!

Have some bacon left over from the morning breakfast, okay, whoever has bacon left over?  We know, so first, make up the bacon in a skillet or in foil. Add a little brown sugar to it and carmalize it.  You want crispy bacon for this. This will add a layer of salty to the already sweet treat and an extra yum.

There you have it some creative ways to make the amazing camping S’more we have all come to love.  How to make the perfect S’more you ask, well, there is not just one answer. Be sure to try some of these!
