I’ve recently gotten on a S’mores kick.
I don’t know. Maybe it’s that they remind me of summers at camp hanging out around the fire singing chicken train.
Or maybe because I love any excuse to eat three layers of sweet-ness.

Or maybe it’s just because S’mores are freaking awesome. When was the last time you had one? I hadn’t in YEARS, until about a month ago when Ray and I hosted a cookout to celebrate my *coughinsertagehere* birthday. ohhhhhh I was immediately hooked. Or I guess I was re-hooked. It’s easy to remember just how perfectly tasty these lovely treats are. And even easier to become highly addicted. again.
Apparently S’more is short for “some more” which makes sense ’cause
GET IN MY BELLY.
YALL – since the bday bash we’ve been making a LOT of s’mores. Because Boone already thinks it’s January, I had to figure out how to make them in the oven.
I’m sure there are lots of different methods, but I put mine in at 375 for 4-5 minutes on the top rack and they are PERFECT.
I usually use the top rack so they come out nice and golden, but I guess if you like yours less crunchy shelled, you could try it lower.
*Use a glass or coated non-stick pan. I tried these with my old tin cookie sheet for friends this week and it burnt the graham cracker. Who knew you could burn graham cracker?!
Yeah. I pretty much consider myself an oven s’mores expert now. :P
We had an ultimate s’mores cook-off back in Sept. Check out the different combinations!
^ brownie filled cookie, hershey’s, marshmallow, fudge stripe cookie
^ fudge stripe, marshmallow, fudge stripe
^ hershey’s, marshmallow, hershey’s
^ Reese’s, marshmallow, hersey’s. (this one is my husbands. Who needs the cracker part?? “graham crackers are healthy, right? They have grains?”)
^brownie filled, hershey, marshmallow (slightly burnt), fudge stripe
AND MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE
^ Graham, reese’s cup, marshmallow, graham
I think we need to see that one a little closer.
The Reese’s cup pairs so perfectly with the marshmallow and graham cracker!
So do yourself a favor, and make some s’mores tomorrow night. :)
If you do, let me know how it goes!!
