The most boring of all desserts - cheap chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker but somehow Americans like it because it's set on fire.

Based on extensive research conducted at our cottage this summer and fall, TFA is incorrect.  First of all, use a better quality of chocolate, NOT milk "chocolate".  Use jumbo maple marshmallows, even if that necessitates a trip to our Northern Neighbor.

Most importantly, when the marshmallow is almost perfectly browned, expose one flat surface to the coals to toast it the final bit.  Turn it over and place the chocolate on top of the well-toasted surface.  The chocolate will soften and just start to melt while  the other sides get their final cooking.  Only then is the marshmallow/ molten chocolate bolus ready for the Graham cracker.

Maybe a superior S'more could have prevented the war of 1812.  We don't know.

We'll... never know.

Hint of the century: Make smores with Reese cups instead of plain chocolate bars.  Your welcome.

It's also good with these:

Chocolate silk pie, with a  Graham cracker crust, and marshmallow top that's toasted with a torch.

Get some of the foil mini loaf pans...they happen to be the same size as the crackers. Then make a batch of fudge, and spread a layer of marshmallow whip on top of the crackers. And layer the crackers with the fudge

It's not a dessert, it's a fireplace/campfire tradition.

I always used a wire coat-hanger. Straighten out the hanger, except the hook. Adjust the hook to hold the marshmallow firmly. Toast slowly to allow the marshmallow to expand somewhat. Brown one side, flip and brown the other. Place the chocolate (I liked Mr. Goodbars) on one graham cracker, apply the marshmallow. Hold the marshmallow in place with the second cracker while pulling the coat hanger loop through it. Add graham cracker and press lightly until the chocolate oozes out a bit.

common sense is an oxymoron: It's not a dessert, it's a fireplace/campfire tradition.


I also like the weird dig about not bringing only the finest chocolate on camping trips.

If you want a great example of how to do it wrong, watch the late October Great British Bake Off episode.

Many of the above are not precisely what I do, but still seem like solid paths to deliciousness. My only addition is to pause a little longer after you make the final shmush of the marshmallow and chocolate between the crackers. This will allow the edges of the gooey marshmallow to firm up just enough so it doesn't splurt all over the place when you bite it.

Also, if anyone mentioned using Reese's peanut butter cups I missed it.

Yes, my welcome. You are as much a scholar as you are a chef.

Should I line the place with tarps first? Could be fun.

I just skip the marshmallows entirely, and put a piece of decent chocolate on a graham cracker and microwave it for about 10 seconds. That's usually how long it takes to get the chocolate to that "slightly softened yet still chewy" state that I like.

Marshmallows do absolutely nothing for me.  They exist to make Rice Krispie treats, as far as I'm concerned.

Fun fact: My family introduced s'mores to Australia in 1965.  I was 9 and had few Aussie friends over one.  My mom pulled out the ingredients and they were both intrigued and perplexed about a snack that involved the fireplace and coat hangers.  Big success and they scampered home with tales of this delicious new treat.

/Any Vegemite variations were on them, not me.
