There is just something about camping… being outdoors in nature, setting up a tent, animals sounds, and pesky insects, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows for s’mores. I guess I could’ve just gotten straight to the s’mores because that is almost always the first thing I think of! Nothing quite like it.

Well, camping isn’t on our list of trips for this year, but I still wanted to introduce my kids to a version of this delicious treat. Here’s our easy s’more recipe. My children loved it… and Daddy did too!

What you need:

  • 2 packages of graham crackers
  • 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 bag of marshmallows
  • wax paper

easy smores recipe

What to do:

  • Pour your marshmallows into a casserole dish and place it into the broiler for 5 minutes or less
  • You’ll know they’re ready when they are lightly browned and partially melted
  • You can also opt to soften the marshmallow over the stove top, its just a little easier to distribute the heat evenly in the broiler
  • Spread out a sheet of wax paper over your work area. Things are going to really sticky, really fast!
  • While the marshmallows are doing their thing, have the children take out the graham crackers from their packages and break them in half
  • Take the casserole dish out of the broiler and set aside to cool a bit, no longer than a minute, before inviting the kids to dig in
  • Grab a spoon and scoop out some of the melted marshmallows. Put it on one side of a graham cracker
  • Use another graham cracker to scrap off the marshmallows from the spoon and then to be the top of your “sandwich”
  • Allow the kids to continue this process while you get started on the chocolate
  • You can melt your chocolate chips in the microwave, but heat a little at a time to prevent overcooking
  • Another option is to melt them over the stove
  • If the stove-top method is what you prefer, pour the chips into a pot and sit that pot on top of a second one containing boiling water
  • As the steam from the second pot rises, it will begin to heat the chocolate.
  • Stir until all the chips have been completely melted
  • Dip the marshmallow sandwiches into the chocolate and sit on the wax paper to cool.
  • Allow the chocolate to harden… or not! Take a bite

Lil’ extras:

  • The kids could also spoon chocolate over the graham crackers (my little ones preferred this method)
  • Try with dark chocolate or white chocolate!
