How to make S’Mores (4 Ways!)

How to make S’mores that will take you back to your childhood on the stove, in the microwave, in the oven and on the grill.

Classic Grilled S'mores on your barbecue are the perfect easy, warm, melty summer treat that will take you back to your childhood.

How to make S’mores? I know that seems like an easy answer, but there are actually a few ways to make them and they’re all delicious and different!

However you choose to make them, the best part is the melty marshmallow and chocolate all swirling together in the perfect “sandwich.” People often overlook making S’mores part of their bbq’s and cookouts in favor of other desserts because they think you have to make them one at a time. Some of the methods of cooking take no time at all and can even be made in volume!

The basics have always been the same, graham crackers, chocolate (milk is by far the most popular type of chocolate) and as much marshmallow as you can stuff into the s’mores!

  1. Omg, this was so good!! And i love the way u described it in such detail! Plus thanks for involving a lot of ways on how to make these! I see me making this on a snow day…thank you!

  2. The chocolate doesn’t melt enough just from the heat of the charred marshmallow. How do you get the chocolate to melt more over a campfire?

    1. Once I allow the marshmallows to catch fire for a couple of seconds, the chocolate melts with no issue from the heat.

    2. Great fun with the kids on a cold snowy day, help the kids make S’mores in the fireplace , lot’s of fun

  3. should I use digestive biscuits or normal crackers cos where I’m from we don’t have graham crackers.

    1. From what I can research, it looks like the digestive biscuit would be the closest to a graham cracker.

  4. I am a grammy wanting for granddaughter to experience my childhood memories of smores…thanks so much for all your suggestions! my granddaughter says “thank you”

  5. OMG! I love eating s’mores, but I don’t really know how to make it and this article is really helpful. I will try to make some of it with my friend this weekend.

  6. Awesome idea’s, thanks a bunch! ? I always wondered what other options there were for at home instead of just campfire!

  7. I love s’mores! As a kid, I used to make it in the microwave all the time…until I got a kitchen torch in my teens! 🙂

  8. Perfect timing on this post! Now I’m going to have kids making s’mores all over the house! 🙂

      1. Great fun with the kids on a cold snowy day, help the kids make S’mores in the fireplace , lot’s of fun

  9. S’mores are definitely my favorite summer treat, and I love how you broke them down in 4 easy to make methods!
