These s’mores recipes will keep you buzzing with sugar at your next summer bonfire. Be warned! This list contains some of the most tempting s’mores recipes on the internet that will leave you with no choice but to run out to the closest store to load up on the 3 main ingredients: graham crackers, (vegan) marshmallows, and really good chocolate. I would, however, advise that you only make one at a time to avoid being sick from sugar. Proceed with caution.
1. Classic S’mores
For a recipe free from bells and whistles, you cannot beat classic s’mores. The combination of 3 simple ingredients results in a treat that tastes like so much more. Over a fire or in the oven, melt some marshmallows. This works just as well with vegan marshmallows so vegetarians and vegans can enjoy them along with everyone else. After toasting the marshmallows over the fire, sandwich it in between two graham crackers and a chunk of chocolate.
If you are making s’mores in the oven, lay out the graham crackers neatly over a baking sheet and place the marshmallows over half of the crackers. Since the chocolate melts a lot faster than the marshmallow, you must put the chocolate onto the other half of the graham crackers only when the marshmallows are toasted halfway. Making a s’more for somebody is one of the sweetest bonfire gestures so surprise someone special (or everyone).
2. S’mores Cheesecake
If you have done the impossible and have finally eaten enough cheesecakes to be sick of them, maybe it is time for a new twist on the classic. I assume you have tried strawberry and Oreo cheesecakes but now it is time for a s’mores cheesecake.
This s’mores recipe looks like a s’more mess from the top but as soon as you slice it open you will find a creamy cheesy centre. The graham cracker crust crumbles nicely in its golden brown glow. Enjoy devouring a slice of this campfire treat hybrid. Find the full recipe here.
