Anytime Indoor S’mores

Indoor S'Mores

In case you missed it, National S'Mores Day was last week -- if you want to mark your calendars for next year, it was August 10th to be exact. As if I need an excuse to enjoy a good s'more...


Most often our s'mores-making is relegated to evenings around a fire pit or campfire, and while that's always fun, it's also fun to surprise the kids with a random little sweet treat like these indoor s'mores.

In fact, my kids just had indoor s'mores for breakfast... Yep, I won't be winning Mom of the Year anytime soon, but at least in their eyes I'm the coolest mom ever.

The truth is making s'mores indoors is infinitely easier than toasting marshmallows over a campfire. You can make an entire tray of them in under five minutes -- no mess, no fuss, no burned fingers, and no lingering smokey smell on your hair and clothing!

And no goofy microwave contraption either -- have you seen this?

Surely you know the ingredients for s'mores, but in case you've been deprived of this delicacy all your life, you'll need to pick up some graham crackers, chocolate bars and large marshmallows. Set up all of your ingredients before starting as things move along pretty quickly. Break your graham crackers in half and have your chocolate bars opened and divided.

Arrange the graham cracker halves on a foil-covered baking sheet (makes for super easy cleanup!) and top each one with a marshmallow. Turn on your oven broiler and adjust the top rack to about eight inches from the broiler. Place the tray under the broiler for about 45 seconds to toast the marshmallows.

Don't even think about walking away from the oven at this point! These babies can go from toasty to charred in no time at all! For me this meant getting down on my hands and knees to peer into the oven because my broiler won't operate with the door open, but most of you will probably be able to crack the oven door to keep an eye on them.

This is what you'll have after about 45 seconds -- lovely, toasted and perfectly gooey marshmallows. Now top each one with a chocolate bar section and push it down into the marshmallow.

A really good s'more has chocolate oozing from the sides, so I stuck the tray back under the broiler for just about 15 seconds to soften the chocolate. You can see that it's still holding its shape at this point but is definitely starting to melt -- perfect consistency!

Top them with another graham cracker half and voila -- ooey-gooey, delicious s'mores in under five minutes. Surprise your kids with them on a rainy day or as an after school snack or even for breakfast if you want to be the coolest mom ever too!

Anytime Indoor S’mores

Serving Size: 6 servings

Anytime Indoor S’mores

Ingredients:

  • 6 graham crackers
  • 2 Hershey chocolate bars
  • 6 large marshmallows

Instructions:

  1. Adjust the top shelf in your oven to about 8 inches below the top and turn on your broiler. I used the second rung down in my oven, but you may need to try a few.
  2. On a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil, arrange 6 graham cracker halves topped with one large marshmallow each.
  3. Broil the marshmallows for approximately 45 seconds until browned and soft. Keep a close watch as they can go from toasty to charred in no time flat!
  4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and top each marshmallow with three or so sections of the chocolate bar. Pop the tray back under the broiler for about 15 seconds to slightly melt the chocolate.
  5. Place a second graham cracker half on top of each s'more and enjoy!

Have plenty of napkins on hand because this is some messy eatin' (but oh, so worth it)!

Yum. I haven’t had a decent s’more all summer. I need to rectify that.

When I lived in an apartment I used this recipe because I couldn’t do an open fire to roast the marshmallows. Great recipe, hits the spot.

Looks way better than campfire s’mores. The melted chocolate I am sure makes them awesome!

This is perfect! My 4 yo daughter keeps asking for “mores” so I bought all the ingredients. I just wasn’t sure how to make them inside. Thank you!

I cannot wait to try these, as they look so delicious and easy! I also just wanted to wish you and your family a safe and Happy Back-to-School season! Can’t believe we’re already halfway through Summer (calendar-wise) and that the school year is around the corner!

My broiler is in a separate drawer under my oven (gas) so I can’t get the pan that far from the heat. Will it work in the oven set to broil? I’d love to make these for an upcoming party.

A much easier and faster version with even better taste and just as messy, use Nutella instead of chocolate bars and marshmallow fluff spread instead of actual marshmallows. They won’t be warm but they are sooooo tasty and super fast and easy!!!!!!!!

Nutella’s not safe for folks with a nut allergy; regular Hershey bars are. It does sound yummy, though!
