If you’re planning on camping this summer, don’t forget to make your own smores while you’re there. Camping can mean heading into the backyard with a tent and sleeping bags. Or, it can mean visiting a state park.

Frequently asked questions

How do you make smores?

How do you make a more? The basic process is to break a graham cracker in half. Then, layer half of a Hershey Chocolate bar on top of that. Then, roast a marshmallow to the perfect point of doneness and add it to the stack. Finish off with the rest of the graham cracker and enjoy it.

To make them in the microwave, follow the same process but heat on high for 15 seconds.

How do you make smores without a fire pit?

I don’t recommend toasting marshmallows over an open fire in the kitchen. But, what you can do is layer the graham crackers, two strips of chocolate, and a marshmallow in a baking dish. Then broil them for a few minutes until the marshmallow gets soft. Top with the final graham cracker, and you are all set.

What can I use instead of graham crackers in smores?

I love the way graham crackers taste in this recipe. But, if you are totally out and craving one, you can make them with saltine crackers or Ritz crackers. It’s not the same thing. But, it’s better than no smores at all.

What chocolate is best in smores?

Milk chocolate is the best type of chocolate to use when making smores. It melts much better than dark chocolate. We usually opt for Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars. But, you can experiment with a peanut butter cup or even an Almond joy.

What else can I add?

Why not try adding a spoonful of peanut butter or Nutella underneath the Hershey bar? Or, for a colder treat, let the smores come to room temperature and then refrigerate them. Dip the end in melted chocolate and then in multi-colored sprinkles.
