The gooey, chocolaty s’more has long been a favorite childhood treat. The classic version is made with four simple ingredients: a graham cracker, a toasted marshmallow, a piece of chocolate, and a campfire. But, you don’t have to be camping in the great outdoors to enjoy s’mores—just start thinking outside the box.
If you’re going to make s’mores in the kitchen with sophisticated cooking tools (instead of near a fire pit with twigs), you might as well challenge yourself to make the incredible s’mores mashup recipes below.
From s’mores pizza to an intense meringue-topped pie, the recipes below will help you create an entire menu out of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows.
This spectacular brownie recipe channels all your favorite things about s’mores: There’s a graham cracker crust laden with butter, topped with layers of moist brownie, semi-sweet chocolate chunks, marshmallows, and graham cracker crumbs.
