13 Next Level S’mores Recipes

Old favorites with a new twist.

By Michelle Nash

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that dessert is always a good idea. I was born with a sweet tooth, and must confess I have some sort of dessert pretty much every night. Of course, anything involving chocolate is my absolute weakness. Throw a gooey marshmallow and crunchy graham cracker into the mix and…forget about it.

I can’t remember when I had my first s’more, but there’s no doubt that the famous combo of marshmallow, graham cracker and melted chocolate is a summer classic.

I’m reminded of nights around the campfire, achieving that perfect golden brown marshmallow over an open flame. Well, it turns out people have upped their s’mores game since my summer camp days, and I’m here for it. While I still love a great classic s’more, this dessert’s most winning quality is that there are literally no rules. These ingredients can take on a whole new twist in cookies, breads and even pancakes. Scroll on for some of the best s’mores recipes that’ll make all of your childhood summer camp dreams come true. Some of these can be made in the oven or on the grill too, so if you don’t have access to a fire, don’t sweat it. You’ll find options for our vegan and gluten free friends as well, so there’s something on the list for everyone.
