No Campfire Necessary: 26 New Ways to Eat S’mores

This ultra-American treat has a strong reputation for adding sweet endings to sun-soaked summer days. But we have to admit, we think s’mores have been a little cheated. Their sticky, chocolatey goodness shouldn’t have to be enjoyed beside a campfire exclusively. Here are 26 delicious ways to add s’mores into more foods than you ever thought possible.

1. S’more Cookie Sandwiches: Oh, graham cracker, you know you’ll always hold a special place in our hearts, but come on. We’re talking double chocolate cookies here. We apologize to our dentists, but we simply had to do it. (via Brit + Co.)

2. S’mores Granola Bars: These bars are a sort of cross between a chocolate granola bar and Rice Krispie Treat. But it’s all good. The word “granola” in the title makes them totally healthy, right?! (via I Heart Eating)

3. Peanut Butter S’mores Baked Donuts: We’ve been know to put bacon, Froot Loops and sprinkles atop our favorite morning treat. Marshmallows only seem like a natural addition to the donut-topping family. (via I Heart Eating)

4. S’mores Muddy Buddies: Take the mess out of the classic summertime dessert. These would be a great alternative to the standard version for a party or a group of little ones. No flame required! (via Back for Seconds)

5. Ultimate S’mores Layer Cake: So many layers, so little time. We’ll admit that eating s’mores with a fork seems like some kind of childhood injustice but we’re willing to make an exception this once. (via Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body)

6. S’mores Pie: Pie and s’mores are possibly two of the most American desserts out there. Do your country proud by combining the two into a rich, decadent dish. (via Pastry Affair)

7. S’mores Pop Tarts: Revitalize your favorite childhood treat in a buttery, preservative-free way. (via Handle the Heat)

8. Twisted S’mores: Start with a chewy chocolate cookie base, add a graham cracker ganache (yeah… you heard us right) and top it with marshmallow fluff. (via A Periodic Table)

9. S’mores Cookies: These neat treats were the 2008 grand prize winner in the Martha Stewart Cookie Contest. If Martha gives your cookie the okay, you know you’re doing something right. (via The Cooking Photographer)

10. Summer Bark: During the holidays, we gobble up more peppermint bark than we’d like to admit. Add a summer twist to the chocolatey treat with a graham cracker crust, mini marshmallows, peanuts and colorful sprinkles. (via A Periodic Table)

11. S’mores Milkshake: If it’s just too hot to stand over a fire, here’s a cooler option. Broil marshmallows in the oven until nice and brown, and combine them with vanilla ice cream, shaved chocolate and graham cracker crumbs. Enjoy it all through a straw! (via Spoon Full of Flavor)

12. S’more Pops: Stick a marshmallow on a stick, dip it in melted chocolate, roll it in crushed graham crackers and let chill. Whether or not you can wait for the chocolate to harden before you devour the pops is another question entirely. (via Gimme Some Oven)

13. S’mores Pudding: Save your fingers from eminent sticky doom. This pretty pudding would make a great, classed up spin on the dish for an outdoor dinner party this summer. (via Annie’s Eats)

14. S’mores Monkey Bread: Take the standard three ingredients and add in sugar-coated, flaky biscuits. We’ll take three servings please. (via Pillsbury)

15. S’mores Waffle Sliders: We’re all grown up, but that definitely doesn’t mean we’re over Eggos. Replace the graham cracker with miniature homestyle waffles for a quick, unique alternative. (via Mom on Timeout)

16. S’more Pancakes: Chocolate chip and crumbled graham cracker pancakes with marshmallow syrup. WE REPEAT: MARSHMALLOW SYRUP. (via Rachel Cooks)

17. Strawberry S’more Bites: It’s strawberry season y’all. Take full advantage of the fresh fruit with a lighter, more portable version of the classic. (via Baker’s Royale)

18. Loaded S’mores Bars: Bake up a batch of these gooey bars that are a sweet mixture of blondie dough, fluffy marshmallows, gooey chocolate and crispy graham crackers. (via Averie Cooks)

19. Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S’more Bars: We will say there is a lot going on here. We will also say that all of it is delicious. (via Cookies and Cups)

20. Patriotic Pretzel S’mores: Make your Fourth of July even more patriotic with America’s favorite outdoor dessert and red, white and blue sprinkles. (via Chocolate Moosey)

21. Peanut Butter S’more Truffles: Peanut butter, marshmallow and graham crackers all rolled together, dunked in chocolate and drizzled with more gooey, sweet marshmallow — it’s a perfect bite-sized treat. (via Fabtastic Eats)

22. Frozen S’mores on a Stick: Combine milk of your choice, Ricemellow Creme (or marshmallow fluff), vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and freeze. Dip in chocolate and sprinkle on graham cracker crumbs once pops are frozen for a vegan-friendly option! (via Chocolate Covered Katie)

23. S’more Cookie Bars: These buttery, melt-in-your-mouth bars are everything you ever wanted in a dessert. An important note: Do not use marshmallows in lieu of the marshmallow creme. Marshmallows will disintegrate into the dough. Use marshmallow creme, which stands up to the heat of the oven. (via Sally’s Baking Addiction)

24. Pumpkin S’more Brownies: Brownies? Yes. Pumpkin brownies? Um, definitely yes. Pumpkin s’more brownies? We don’t even know what to do with ourselves. (via Budget Gourmet Mom)

25. S’more Cupcakes: Blend all the s’more elements into one little cupcake. With a graham cracker crust and homemade marshmallow topping, we think you’ll make it more than once. (via Dishing the Divine)

26. Maple Bacon S’mores: If you’re looking for something a little more gourmet than a simple campfire sandwich, look no further. They certainly aren’t quite as quick as the original, but the extra effort puts them in a category all their own. (via Kitchen Konfidence)
