If you didn’t make s’mores, did you really even camp? No camping experience is complete without indulging in the gooey delight of s'mores. This simple and nostalgic recipe brings together the flavors of toasted marshmallows, melted chocolate, and graham crackers for a deliciously sweet treat.


  • Graham crackers
  • Milk chocolate bars (or chocolate squares)
  • Marshmallows


1. Start by preparing your campfire. Make sure you have a safe and controlled fire with glowing embers.

2. Take two graham cracker squares and break a chocolate bar into smaller pieces. Place the chocolate pieces on one of the graham cracker squares.

3. Skewer a marshmallow onto a roasting stick or a long metal skewer. Hold it over the fire, making sure to rotate it slowly for even toasting. Be careful not to hold it too close to the flames, as it can catch fire.

4. Once the marshmallow is golden brown and gooey, carefully place it on top of the chocolate on one of the graham cracker squares.

5. Take the remaining graham cracker square and press it gently on top of the marshmallow, creating a sandwich.

6. Let the heat from the toasted marshmallow melt the chocolate for a few seconds before removing the skewer.

7. Allow the s'more to cool for a moment, as it will be hot.

8. Repeat the process to make more s'mores to share and enjoy with your camping companions.

9. Indulge in the warm, melty, and satisfying s'mores. The combination of the toasted marshmallow, melted chocolate, and crunchy graham crackers will surely bring smiles to everyone around the campfire.

Remember, s'mores can also be made using alternative ingredients, such as flavored marshmallows or different types of chocolate. Get creative and experiment with your own unique variations to enhance the traditional s'mores experience.
