Microwave Smores

Who can resist the gooey, chocolatey, marshmallow-filled delight that is the beloved campfire treat known as s’mores? This iconic dessert has been a staple around campfires for generations, bringing people together with its simple yet delicious combination of graham crackers, melty chocolate, and perfectly toasted marshmallows.

The origins of s’mores are a bit murky, with some sources dating the recipe back to the early 1920s. It’s said that the name “s’mores” is a contraction of the phrase “some more,” as in “I want some more of that delicious treat!”

Whether you’re sitting around a crackling fire with friends or enjoying the treat in the comfort of your kitchen, s’mores are sure to bring a smile to your face.

Making s’mores is as easy as it gets, with just a few simple ingredients and a bit of patience. While the recipe itself is not difficult, getting that perfect gooey marshmallow-toasting technique down can take some practice.

But don’t worry, even if your marshmallow catches fire or the chocolate melts too much, the end result is still a deliciously messy treat that will have you coming back for s’more.

Ingredients

Crackers: Crackers are thin, crispy baked snacks usually made from flour, water, and salt. They provide a crunchy base for the smores recipe, adding a savory contrast to the sweet chocolate and marshmallows.

Chocolate: Chocolate is a sweet, decadent ingredient made from cocoa beans that have been roasted and ground. In the smores recipe, chocolate provides a rich and indulgent layer between the crackers and marshmallows, melting into a gooey texture when heated.

Marshmallows: Marshmallows are fluffy, soft confections made from sugar, gelatin, and corn syrup. When toasted, marshmallows develop a golden-brown crispy exterior while maintaining a gooey, melty center, adding a sticky sweetness to the smores recipe.

Serving Suggestions and Variations

Serving Suggestions:

  • For a classic smores experience, sandwich a piece of chocolate between two marshmallows and place it on a cracker. Roast it over a campfire until the marshmallow is gooey and the chocolate is melted.
  • Try adding a twist to your smores by using flavored marshmallows such as strawberry or caramel. This will add an extra layer of sweetness to your treat.
  • Pair your smores with a hot drink such as hot chocolate or coffee to enjoy the perfect combination of flavors.
  • Create a smores bar at a party by setting out different types of crackers, chocolates, and marshmallows for guests to mix and match as they please.

Variations:

  • Substitute the traditional graham crackers with chocolate cookies or peanut butter cookies for a different flavor profile.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate such as dark chocolate, white chocolate, or flavored chocolate bars to customize your smores.
  • Add a spread of Nutella or peanut butter on the crackers before adding the marshmallows and chocolate for an extra indulgent treat.
  • Sprinkle crushed nuts, sprinkles, or drizzle caramel or raspberry sauce on top of the smores for added texture and flavor.
