Making S’mores in the Oven
I love making S’mores in my oven for so many reasons, shall we go through them?
- Making S’mores in Bulk has never been easier!
- Enjoy them anytime of year

- SO much faster!
Put those roasting sticks away and pull out the cookie sheets! You’ll never want to make S’mores any other way again!

If you’d like to mix up your S’mores a bit, there are literally endless combinations you can try!
First, let’s talk about the graham cracker/cookie. Here are a few different options for you: Oreo’s, Nutter Butters, Fudge-Striped Cookies, Chip’s Ahoy Cookies. I recently even saw someone making their S’mores with woven BACON if you are really adventurous!
Now, my favorite, the chocolate. Give these substitutions a try: Reese’s, Caramel Ghirardelli Chocolate squares, Rolo’s, Chocolate Chips, Skor Bar. Anything chocolate is just pure magic!
How to Make S’mores in the Oven
To make S’Mores in the oven, first line your cookie sheet with graham crackers. I like to buy the packaged square graham crackers for ease.
You can make one S’more this way or 10 on the same sheet pan!
Place marshmallows on one side of the pair of graham crackers and place chocolate on the other graham cracker, as shown above.
You can use large marshmallows or mini, it all tastes the same. 😉
Broil for 1-2 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on them! They brown quickly!!
Remove from the oven, match a marshmallow top to a chocolate bottom and create a sandwich. Enjoy, enjoy!
The S’Mores are best eaten hot and fresh! This usually isn’t an issue because they come together so quickly.

Making a S’mores Dip in the Oven
Chocolate for S’mores
Like I said before, different chocolate substitutions for s’mores include Reese’s, Caramel Ghirardelli Chocolate squares, Rolos, Chocolate Chips, Skor Bar.
Honestly, you could use any kind of chocolate! Usually chocolate without krispies, crackers or nougat works better.
My personal favorite chocolate for s’mores is dark chocolate, but milk or white chocolate would be delicious too.
Marshmallows for S’mores
The kind of marshmallow you use for your s’more also comes down to what you like better!
In this recipe I used mini-marshmallows, because I think they’re easier to handle and spill over the sides less, but there are many more options!
There are “Stacker-Mallows” which are wide, flat marshmallows made for s’mores. Normal marshmallows, jumbo sized marshmallows, colored marshmallows, special flavored marshmallows, etc! All these will work.
Of all the marshmallows I’ve tried, nothing beats classic marshmallows.
How to make s’mores in the microwave
Making s’mores in the microwave works best if you just make one s’more at a time. Assemble the s’more with the marshmallow in between two cookies and place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 30 seconds or until the marshmallow is soft and gooey.
