Gourmet S’mores are easy to make
I’m a big fan of s’mores! So I’ve experimented a lot with different cookies, chocolates, and additional fillings. And, I believe that I can confidently share, the best Gourmet S’mores ever!
I have lots of how to make tips, tricks, and more ways to s’more! So if you’re looking for variations, you’ve come to the right place.
S’mores are a DIY kid favorite for dessert, and there are endless ways to make them. Some are no campfire required.
At the bottom of the post I have my favorite printable recipe for this delicious and fun gourmet dessert treat.
Classic campfire version
This is the version we all grew up with. It’s easy, perfect for camping, or beach fire pits, and nostalgic.
It’s perfectly summer.
Place a marshmallow on a long stick, and roast it over the campfire. Add half of a Hershey’s milk chocolate bar on half of a graham cracker. Place the roasted marshmallow in the middle, and top with the other half of the graham cracker. Press together.
And if you’re feeling adventurous and want to make something really special and gourmet, be sure to try my Peppermint S’mores with homemade chocolate graham crackers and homemade peppermint marshmallows.
Grill or BBQ
Preheat grill to medium-high. Lightly wrap build s’mores in aluminum foil, and place on grill grates. Heat for about 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows are melted and gooey.
You can also do a whole tray of s’mores on the grill. Check out my recipe here on how to make s’mores for a crowd.
Grills are also great to use just like a campfire. Place a marshmallow on a long stick, and roast it over the grill, or over the hot coals of a BBQ.
The photo above: this variation is made on digestive biscuits with Hershey’s milk chocolate and two toasted marshmallows
Indoor oven baked
A toaster oven would be a great size for some small s’mores. But if you only have a big oven (like me), that works too.
Build a s’more without the top graham cracker, and place it on a baking sheet or cookie tray. Bake in a preheated 350° F oven until the marshmallow begins to toast and turn golden in color. Remove from the oven, and top the s’more with the other half of the cracker.

Indoor gas stove top
Place a marshmallow on a long stick, and roast it over medium high heat of a gas stove top.
Make a twist on the classic s’mores by making stove top s’mores rice krispie treats.
I found this really cool indoor electric s’mores maker for roasting marshmallows on Amazon.
You can make s’mores in your kitchen in less than 5 minutes using your microwave, and this method requires no special long-handled sticks or skewers!
Build your s’mores without the top half graham cracker. Place built s’mores on a microwave safe plate, and microwave for about 10-15 seconds, or until the marshmallow is soft. Top with the other half of the graham cracker, and press together.
