How to Make S’mores Indoors

Today was a cool rainy day – a perfect day for something hot and chocolatey. FishChick was sitting at the table at lunch, looking at the box of graham crackers. And through crumbs, mumbled, Look Mama, they make this thing with chocolate and marshmellows. She’s only three and she is still hard to understand sometimes, especially through crumbs. But, whatever words she used, I knew what she meant. And it just so happened that we had….

Methinks this is the makings of some indoor s’mores.

If I were an Adventure Mama, I might have swaggered outside and started a fire in a pit or at least in the BBQ. Or I might have lit a fire in the fireplace that we never use and let the kids stab each other with skewers. Instead, I used the broiler, saved my home and children from injury, and enjoyed a sweet treat all at the same time.

You can do this, too!

On a baking sheet lay out graham cracker halves. Place marshmellows and two chocolate sections on crackers. Place in broiler for 2-3 minutes, depending on your oven and how toasty you like them.

Place one chocolate half on top of each marshmellow half. If you want to be tricky with the baby, give her one without the chocolate. Not as much fun — for her– but a little cleaner for you!

Enjoy! And then make s’more.

  1. Those look delicious! I have made smores indoors too. Instead of chocolate bars, which I didn’t have, I used Nutella. Great idea!

  2. I love s’mores! I’m not over the age limit am I? ;)

  3. So CLEVER!

  4. Crap, now I am hungry ;)


  5. You had me at S’mores! Delicious! I just added all the ingredients to my grocery list!
    It’ll be a good reward for potty training.

  6. Wow! Those look so good!

  7. Thanks for this post!

    I’ve heard people say the “adult” version substitutes croissants for the graham crackers.

  8. Thanks…no im drooling…haha. They look amazing!

  9. Yummy—- those look so good. :)

  10. Even easier, just put the graham crackers with chocolate and marshmellow on them in the microwave for 10-20 sec. – then put together and eat! No heating of the oven required – and the kids are just as happy!

  11. I love indoor smores!! I do ours in our toaster oven:-)

    • @Susie’s Homemade, Since we’re just a family of 3, we do ours in the toaster-oven, too! We like that better than microwaving because it keeps the crackers crispy and browns the marshmallows. We cook them at 250 degrees–it takes longer, but nothing burns.

  12. We pop them in the microwave too!

    Please send one this way – yummmo! Reminds me of the Fourth of July, which is the last place I think I had one.

  14. Love indoor Smores!!! We sometimes use Hershey kisses and mini-marshmallows!

  15. Too funny, I posted an Indoor S’more recipe this week, too. Mine if for s’more bars. Oh boy, s’mores are good any time of the year, aren’t they?!

  16. Ooooh, I LOVE this idea, I can’t wait to try it with the boys! Toaster oven idea is great too. Thanks for sharing : )

  17. Over the years I’ve done these in the microwave and then the toaster oven. Now I stick ‘em with a knife or fork and roast them right on my gas range! It’s quick! Instant gratification! *grin*

  18. What a great idea! I don’t know why I have never thought of doing that…the next cold, drizzly day we have I will be trying this out too!

  19. We’ve done this too – great fun, especially in the dead of winter. :)

    When we don’t have graham crackers, we use those striped shortbread cookies instead. Takes the place of the chocolate AND the cracker, if you choose! A bit less messy for the kids. ;)

    These turned out great! We made them for my daughter’s birthday party last night. The only adjustment I would recommend is to check them every 30 seconds. Apparently our broiler burns really high, so my timer never made it to 2 minutes and I nearly set our kitchen on fire! But we caught it in time and they were delicious!

  21. great way to do the smores without the campfire! we will have the bbq on tonight and, while I don’t fancy gathering around that searing hot propane beast with my marshmallow at the end of a willow stick, I am going to put the pan of smores on the grill using the method you’ve pictured. Works for pizza, so why not!!

    • Jessica Fisher says:

      That’s a great idea! Plus, they’ll get a smoky flavor. I may have to steal that idea. Thanks!

  22. This looks easy enough. I will try this rainy weeken and let you know. Thank you!

  23. Smores are delicious with the strawberry marshmallows.
