How to Make Smores in the Oven
What Are Smores?
Smores 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 smore 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.
- 2 full-sized graham crackers
- 3 large-sized marshmallows
- 6 squares chocolate
1. Place the Smores 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 smores at a time in most ovens.
3. Put the Halves of the Smore 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 smore.
