Introduction: How to Make S'mores (in Three Different Ways)

Picture of How to Make S'mores (in Three Different Ways)

Here is how to make a great s'more three different ways. Whether you're camping outside or craving a marshmallow inside, here's the steps to make a s'more in your kitchen or over the fire (preferably not a fire in your kitchen). The first three steps must be done for every kind of s'more. However, the 4th step should be followed for roasting over a fire, the 5th for a stove, and the 6th for an oven. (I left out making s'mores in the microwave because it doesn't work very well.)

Ingredients:
1) Bag of marshmallows (must be fresh for s'mores to turn out delightful)
2) Box of graham crackers
3) One medium bar of breakable chocolate (or a bunch of miniature bars)
4) One roasting fork or stick (must be a few feet in length so as not to burn little handsies and toesies)
5) A camp fire, stove, or oven

Step 1: Step 1: Get Ready...

Step 2: Step 2: Get Set...

Break one graham cracker in half. Lay half a graham cracker aside on a plate. Break two small squares off of the chocolate bar. Lay these on top of one of the graham cracker pieces.

Step 3: Step 3: Wait for It...

Insert roasting fork or stick into marshmallow.

Step 4: Step 4: Go! Roasting Over a Fire

Picture of Step 4: Go! Roasting Over a Fire
This step is for roasting your marshmallow over a fire. For cooking s'mores inside your house, see steps 5 and 6. 
Making the fire:
1) Crumple newspaper and sit it on ground or in a fire pit (far away from anything flammable)
2) Place small sticks on top of newspaper
3) Light newspaper on fire!
4) Once lit, place chopped wood on top
Roasting Marshmallow:
1) You can either roast the marshmallow over the flames or, if you're patient enough, wait until the flames die down into coals and roast it over the coals.
2) Slowly turn the roasting stick in place a few inches away from coals or flames
3) When marshmallow is golden-brown, pull marshmallow off stick (you may want to use half of the graham cracker to peel marshmallow off stick)
4) Lay marshmallow on graham cracker with chocolate and cover with other side of graham cracker 

 

Step 5: Go! Cooking Over a Stove

For cooking over a stove:
1) Turn stove on to low/medium
                2) Slowly turn stick over burner or flames until marshmallow is golden brown

     -too much heat and marshmallow will catch on fire
     -not enough heat and marshmallow won’t have the necessary crispy outside
 

Step 6: Go! Cooking in an Oven

For cooking in an oven:
1) Set oven to broil on high
2) Lay plate on oven rack (in case marshmallow melts and falls off the stick)
3) Slowly rotate stick beneath broiler until marshmallow is golden brown

Step 7: Step 7: Almost There!

1)Pull marshmallow off stick (you may want to use half of the graham cracker to take marshmallow off stick)
2) Lay marshmallow on the graham cracker with chocolate and cover with other side of graham cracker 

Step 8: Eat It!!!!!!!!!!

This is what happens when your marshmallow catches on fire.  This is bad.  Try again.

I once laced the marshmallow in Choki Choki.

It was awesome.

We placed the marshmallows in the s'mores and squeezed the cracker together to hold it while spinning the roasting stick out of the s'more.

instead of chocolate I sometimes use nutella since its already spreadable and tastes great!

I remember when I was 4 years old, my cousin tried to trick me that burnt marshmallows were chocolate marshmallows so I would burn my tongue LOL

Doing it in the microwave works just fine for me. Put the marshmallow and chocolate on the piece of graham cracker. Nuke it until the marshmallow starts to puff out and expand (10-15 seconds). Remove from microwave and smush it down with the other piece of graham cracker.

You don't get the toasty caramelized sugar like over a fire, but it's crazy fast and tastes pretty much the same :)

I know its not the traditional s'more but instead of the chocolate bar i like to use a reeses cup instead. they are absolutely delicious.

If I had known about s'mores when I was growing up, I would have been a lot less annoyed by the coal fire which was the only source of heat in the living areas.
