Indoor S’mores (Make in Oven or Microwave!)

S’mores are a treat that you can enjoy anytime and anywhere, even indoors. No campfire is needed for these delicious chocolatey, gooey indoor s’mores, and they can be ready in only 5-minutes.

Who doesn’t love melted chocolate, ooey gooey marshmallows, and crunchy graham crackers? I bet we all have great childhood memories of making s’mores by a campfire. Thankfully, these indoor s’mores can be made anytime, and you don’t even need a fire.

While you’re at it, try my Banana Boats which are also normally made by a campfire in foil, but these are easy to do in your air fryer.

What’s a s’more?

S’mores are a traditional campfire dessert that has been popular with kids and adults for nearly a century. They are made from a roasted marshmallow and chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers.

Traditionally, campers have made s’mores by roasting marshmallows on a stick over a campfire until they are golden brown and gooey on the inside. While they are still hot, they are stuffed with a piece of chocolate between graham crackers.

The Girl Scouts are credited with coming up with the idea for s’mores all the way back in 1927.

Ingredients needed

Everyone, please stay calm, and no one panic. I’m not suggesting that these s’mores are low-fat or considered healthy food, but they are a delicious treat once in a while.

How to make indoor s’mores

While it is lots of fun to make s’mores beside a campfire, it’s not always convenient. To get the delicious chocolatey treat even when you’re not camping, it’s pretty simple to do in your own kitchen at home.

There are a couple of different ways to make them at home in only a few minutes.

S’mores in the oven

  1. Gather your ingredients and set the oven to broil.
  2. Break each of the graham crackers in half (unless you’ve made your own oil-free homemade), and line a baking sheet with as many halves as you plan to have s’mores. Save the other half to top the s’mores with before serving.
  3. Top each cracker half with a piece of chocolate and then place a marshmallow on top. Large marshmallows can be cut in half which helps with keeping them from rolling off as they fluff up.
  4. Place on the middle rack of your oven and broil for about 1 minute until they turn golden brown. Warning: don’t leave them unattended and watch them the entire cooking time because they will brown very quickly.
  5. Remove the s’mores from the oven and top with the other graham cracker halves. Press down to smush the fluffy marshmallow into the chocolatey sandwich.

S’mores in the microwave

  1. Break each of the graham crackers in half (unless you’ve made your own oil-free homemade), and place them on a microwave-safe plate with as many halves as you plan to have s’mores. Save the other half to top the s’mores with before serving.
  2. Top each cracker half with a piece of chocolate and place in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds to allow the chocolate to soften.
  3. Next, place a marshmallow on top and cook for another 10 seconds or until the marshmallows puff up. Note: large marshmallows can be cut in half which helps with keeping them from rolling off as they fluff up.
  4. Remove the s’mores from the microwave and smush the fluffy marshmallows down with the other graham cracker halves.

S’more spread ideas

Want to make them even better? Add a little peanut butter to the crackers when assembling to cook for an even better treat. Other nut butters like almond and cashew work well too and even my caramel sauce is a terrific idea.

Cracker options

Store-bought graham crackers are often vegan, but I haven’t been able to find any that are oil-free. There are a couple of solutions for those. Make your own homemade graham crackers to keep these completely oil-free. The Vegan 8 has some Almond Butter Cookies that would probably be great for making s’mores.

Marshmallow tips

Marshmallows aren’t vegan, so I like to use Dandies Large Vegan Marshmallows. The large marshmallows can be cut in half which helps with keeping them from rolling off as they fluff up. However, if you want your s’more really ooey gooey, opt for leaving them whole.
