12 best products that can be used to make s’mores

Fall is the best time of the year to bundle up next to a fire, gaze at the stars and make s’mores. There’s something nostalgic about making s’mores, taking that first bite and seeing the gooey marshmallows ooze out from between the crackers. While s’mores are most commonly made outside over a smoky campfire, thanks to convenient kitchen gadgets and tools, you can enjoy this classic treat wherever you are. So, whether you’re relaxing in your backyard, camping in the woods or stuck inside during a storm, here are the best products that can be used to make s’mores.

In this article: Nostalgia Indoor Electric Stainless Steel S'mores Maker, Jolly Green Products Rotating Marshmallow Roasting Sticks and City Bonfires Mini Portable Fire Pit.

Tips to make the best s’mores

While making s’mores might seem pretty self-explanatory, some tips and tricks will simplify the process and help anyone create the perfect s’more.

Prepare the supplies

There’s nothing worse than roasting the perfect marshmallow and realizing the cracker and chocolate aren’t ready. Instead, create the entire s’more before roasting the marshmallow so you don’t have to open the chocolate with one hand while balancing a melted marshmallow.

Don’t rush the marshmallow

Some people are more particular about the doneness level of their marshmallows than they are their steak. Whether you prefer a slightly toasty exterior or a charred marshmallow, don’t rush the process. If you take it off the fire too soon, the middle won’t be melted.

Roast the chocolate

While you can’t stick a piece of chocolate on a roasting stick, setting it next to the fire while taking your time with the marshmallow will help it melt slightly. 

S’mores recipes

While classic s’mores with graham crackers, a bar of milk chocolate and a marshmallow are the most well-known, there are a ton of variations you can try, including:

  • Cookies and cream s’mores: Chocolate graham crackers, cookies and cream chocolate and marshmallow.
  • Peanut butter s’mores: Honey graham crackers, peanut butter cups and marshmallow.
  • Berry s’mores: Waffle cookies, chocolate bar, canned or roasted berries and marshmallow.
  • Nutella s’mores: Honey graham crackers, a layer of Nutella and marshmallow.
