Things You'll Need
Fire up your backyard fire pit to get some perfect marshmallow roasting coals. If you don't have room for a big fire pit, try making our DIY s'mores mini terra cotta fire pit or our DIY tabletop fire pit for toasted marshmallows roasted to perfection.
1. Caramel Apple S'mores
There's no reason to wait until fall for the taste of a crispy, gooey and tart caramel apple. Bring your roasted marshmallow to the next level by adding a few apple slices and a spoonful of caramel dip to the classic s'more recipe for a sweet, sticky and tart campfire treat. You could even add some salt for a salted caramel apple s'more.
2. S'moa S'mores
Oh, don't we love those delicious, crisp cookies with caramel, coconut and chocolate that those enterprising young Girl Scouts sell during cookie season? Recreate the Girl Scout cookie experience around your backyard fire pit with a s'moa s'more. Instead of using a Hershey chocolate bar, unwrap a coconut Mounds chocolate bar, place it on a graham cracker, drizzle a little caramel dip over the Mounds bar and squish a toasted marshmallow on top with a second graham cracker. Oh, the gooey goodness! Give us s'moa s'mores!!
3. Fluffernutter S'mores
For all of you New Englanders out there, this next peanut butter s'more recipe is for you. The fluffernutter, a tradition on the northern East Coast, is a marshmallow cream and peanut butter sandwich. We've brought the fluffernutter up just a notch and mixed it with a classic s'more and a Reese's peanut butter cup for a fluffernutter combo that's sure to make s'mores fun again.
4. Mexican Chocolate S'mores
For a complex, intense, south-of-the-border s'more idea, sprinkle a little ground cinnamon and chili powder onto the chocolate bar before pressing the toasted marshmallow and graham cracker together. A Mexican dark chocolate s'more gives a typical classic s'more a spicy twist.
5. Sweet 'n Salty S'mores
Something magical happens when we combine a crispy, salty snack with sweet and ooey-gooey goodness. Our taste buds have been known to do a happy dance when we bite into a sweet and salty combo. So, the next time you are hanging out around your fire pit, top your chocolate bar, toasted marshmallow and graham crackers with a few pretzels for a next-level, no-prep-time s'mores recipe that's sure to roll your socks up and down.
