What are smores made of?

You might have everything in your cupboard already!

  1. Chocolate 
  2. Graham crackers
  3. Marshmallows

If you want to take them over the top though like we did above, add a Reeses peanut butter cup too! 

We made this DIY fire pit last year and have been enjoying it quite a bit together. It cost us less than $100 and if you’ve ever thought about making one I encourage you to do so. It is easier than you might initially think.

Smores dessert recipes

You’ll need either cake mix or a box of brownies to make the unique recipe below.

  • This smores poke cake always is a winner – It comes out so soft and gooey! I pushed pieces of Hershey bar on the top but you could opt for chocolate chips instead. If you don’t know how to make a poke cake it is super simple!

You’ll need the traditional smores items plus:

  1. Chocolate cake mix – and ingredients to prepare this as directed on the box
  2. Marshmallow creme
  3. I used a box of already smashed graham cracker crumbs
  4. Mini marshmallows vs. larger ones for making toasted marshmallows over the campfire
  5. Chocolate syrup
    1. or use melted chocolate bars
  6. smores poke cake 2

But we aren’t stopping there! There are other ooey gooey s’mores recipes for the oven and stovetop here too!

  • Like these smores nachos! – These are made in a cast iron skillet which is fun, and an exciting way to serve them to guests at a party.
  • Smores bars have layers of chocolate, graham crackers and gooey marshmallows but can be cut into squares!

These smores bites are made in a mini muffin tin so you can pop them right in. OR make Crockpot peanut clusters but throw in some ‘mallows and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs when done.

Our smores rice krispy treats have always been a real hit with the kids!

This one is something my kids can help me make. Now that they’re older they can even do the part on the stovetop and they’ve surprised me with them. 😉

With your favorite sticky cereal treat on the bottom topped with s’mores ingredients on top, it is a fun way to change things up a bit.

Why is a Smore called a Smore?

Well no one knows for sure who invented it but it first came out in a Girl Scout publication in the 20’s! So….Loretta Crew is given the credit.

But we’re not stopping there, here are more smores dessert recipes ……

  • Banana smores on the barbecue are SO good!! You can put them into the oven too if you don’t have the grill going but the combo is delicious.
  • Want to make a whole BUNCH for a crowd all at once? Try sheet pan s’mores!

Can you microwave a marshmallow?

  • Yes!!
  • Just put 2 marshmallows on a paper plate or paper towel.
  • Do not put them in for more than 2 minutes or it will just be a mess!

Here’s how to make microwave smores!

Get ready for something SO cute with this s’mores in a jar treat too!

You will need these mini mason jars for this.

  • I promise you they’ll be a real hit with everyone you serve them too.
  • Just preheat your oven.
  • Mix your ingredients for gooey chocolate cake using SODA as the mix in.
  • Bake
  • When they’re done push a large marshmallow and a piece of chocolate in the center!

The hardest part really isn’t hard at all but you do NOT want to overbake these. You want them just barely firm around the edges so they’re still a bit gooey.

  2. Bake

    Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the box and pour over the graham cracker crust. Bake in the oven for 38-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
