S’mores, short for “some mores,” is a traditional campfire confection made with graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolate. The origin is unclear, but one recipe, named “marshmallow sandwich,” was published in a 1920s Campfire Marshmallows recipe book.

All it takes is three ingredients and about 20 minutes of your time to make these treats that would be perfect for a pajama party. But don’t forget about the adults—they would be great on a passed dessert tray with an encouragement to eat them while warm. 

Here are two yummy variations of the classic campfire S’mores you can make anywhere without the campfire!

S’mores bites

  1. In a food processor, pulverize 2 sleeves graham crackers (total of 18 crackers) graham crackers (I break them up before putting them in the bowl). Add 2 tbsp sugar and with motor running, add 10 tbsp melted butter.
  2. Spoon mixture into mini muffin tin and press on bottom and up sides to form crust.
  3. Bake at 400 for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, add a section of 2 chocolate bars to each muffin. Top with half a marshmallow.
  5. Cook under broiler for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.

S’mores dip

  1. Break 3 chocolate bar into pieces and put in 9″ cast iron skillet or pie pan. Bake at 350 for about 5 minutes, until chocolate is melted. Stir to finish melting.
  2. Top with 34 or so marshmallows, arranging in co-centric circles.
  3. Put in broiler for 2 minutes (even marshmallows don’t expand to cover chocolate, you can bake at 350 for 2 minutes). Serve with graham crackers.
