What Are S'mores?

S'mores (as in, "I want some more") are a classic sweet treat perfect for camping, bonfires, picnics, and barbecues. But what if you want to make them at home? There's a quick and easy way to make this tasty treat using your oven's broiler.

The traditional s'more is made by roasting marshmallows over an open fire, melting chocolate on a graham cracker, and then sandwiching the roasted marshmallow between the two crackers. It's a rich and gooey treat that kids love. Here's a quick and easy way to make this fun, campy dessert for your kids in your own oven.

Ingredients

  • 2 full-sized graham crackers
  • 3 large-sized marshmallows
  • 6 squares chocolate

1. Place the S'mores in the Oven

  • Set the oven's broiler on low and let it heat up
  • Place three large marshmallows on a full-sized graham cracker
  • Place six squares of chocolate on a graham cracker

They can be placed directly on the oven racks or on a cookie tray to make it a bit easier to get the smores in and out of the oven.

2. Brown the Marshmallows

The broiler heat will quickly brown the marshmallows. Once the marshmallows are brown, the chocolate will also be melted. This step usually takes less than two minutes, so watch the marshmallows closely.

Note: it's possible to make several s'mores at a time in most ovens.

Once the mallows are browned and the chocolate is soft, go ahead and put the smore together.

3. Put the Halves of the S'more Together

Remove the graham crackers from the oven with the chocolate melted or at least warmed and the marshmallows browned and hot. Place the two halves together and you have a perfect oven-roasted s'more.
