S’mores and camping may very well be the perfect combination, except for one drawback – you may not always have the time to get a good campfire going to make these treats, so we decided to put together a quick recipe for you that you can make ahead of time and keep on hand for those late night cravings or really just any time you’re in the mood for a little piece of camping heaven.

This really will be a super simple recipe to put together and the only things you’ll need are your standard s’mores making ingredients – graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows.  We opted for using mini marshmallows and chocolate chips instead of bars since we’d be melting it, but there’s really no wrong way to make a s’mores so feel free to experiment if you have other ingredients on hand.

We started out by lining a cookie sheet with wax paper, then putting down a layer of graham crackers to create the base.  Next, we poured over a batch of melted chocolate and smoothed it out flat to completely cover the graham crackers.  Ideally you should use a double boiler to melt your chocolate, but if you don’t have one you can always just put some chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave them until they’re melty.

While the chocolate is still melty, drop some marshmallows on top and lightly press them in so they’ll stick into the chocolate.  The next step is optional if you happen to have a blowtorch on hand, but we opted to go for it since the toasted marshmallow flavor adds an extra element of camping goodness.  If you do decide to use a small blowtorch or pastry torch to toast your marshmallows like we did, be sure to go slow so you don’t burn the marshmallows and also be careful or your wax paper, you don’t want to set it on fire!

For an added layer of visual appeal we garnished our s’mores bars with a little bit of crushed graham crackers and then streuseled some melted chocolate over the whole thing.  Once we finished making it pretty, we placed it in the fridge to firm up, and then about an hour later cut it into manageable pieces.

You can also opt to just break it into smaller pieces by hand if you like a more rustic style, but no matter how you break it into smaller pieces, it will still be absolutely delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 bag chocolate chips
  • 1 box graham crackers
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows

Directions

  1. Start by setting up a double boiler and melting your chocolate.
  2. While waiting for your chocolate to melt, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and then lay down a layer of graham crackers.
  3. Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, pour a layer over the graham crackers and spread it evenly
  4. While the chocolate is still melty, sprinkle some mini marshmallows over the chocolate until it's as loaded as you like. Press them lightly into the chocolate so they stick.  Optionally, you can take a pastry torch and lightly toast the mini marshmallows, just take care not to set your parchment paper on fire.
  5. Take some leftover chocolate and drizzle it over the top of the marshmallows.
  6. Set the cookie sheet in the fridge to set the chocolate and lock everything in place.  After everything sets, you can take the bars out of the fridge and cut them into easy to bite pieces.
  7. Store them in some place cool so the chocolate doesn't melt!

One additional note here, this is a great recipe to make with the kids (minus the blowtorching!) and they’ll have fun getting hands on with the marshmallows and chocolate, or at minimum, they’ll sure love eating them!
