Ingredients

Ingredients used to make oven s'mores: graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate.
  • Graham Crackers: You can check out my recipe tips section for other variations instead of graham crackers.
  • Marshmallows: Definitely use the large marshmallows!
  • Chocolate Bars: I opt for Hershey’s chocolate bars, but you could go for a symphony bar too! I have additional candy options in my recipe tips section.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Place graham cracker squares on a baking sheet. Top each square with chocolate. 
  1. Place a large marshmallow on top of the chocolate. 
  2. Broil them in the oven for a minute or two. Stay by the oven and watch them because they cook REALLY fast.
  3. They are done when the marshmallows are slightly puffy and are golden brown. 
  4. Top with the remaining graham cracker squares and eat immediately. Feel free to add additional graham crackers to the pan to make even more sheet pan s’mores at a time!

Recipe Tips

Variations

Additional toppings you can try for these indoor s’mores are

  • Instead of Hershey’s chocolate bars, try peanut butter cups, Rolos, Snickers, Almond Joy, Take 5 Bar, Symphony bar, etc.
  • In addition to the cookie, chocolate and marshmallow, try adding a dollop of Nutella, Biscoff spread, cream cheese, caramel, etc.

Storing

These oven baked s’mores are best enjoyed right away. However, if you have any leftover, store them in an airtight container or plastic bag in the fridge. You’ll have to reheat them in the oven again before eating.

FAQs

What happens to marshmallows in the oven?

Marshmallows will expand and brown in the oven, similar to how they cook over a campfire. When your oven is set to broil, they will cook and brown REALLY fast, so make sure to watch them.

What can you use instead of graham crackers for s’mores?

Check out some of my variations in my recipe tips section above which include cookie options such as Oreos, nutter butters, shortbread cookies, fudge-striped cookies, Girl Scout Cookies, etc.

What season do you eat s’mores?

When you are making s’mores in the oven, you can have s’mores any season! Traditionally s’mores are enjoyed during the summer over an outdoor campfire, but oven baked s’mores means you can enjoy them any time of the year.

Notes

Chocolate variety: I usually use Hershey’s chocolate for these s’mores because that’s what I have on hand. However, I love the Lindt chocolate squares too. Use Reese’s PB cups for variety. They are amazing on s’mores!! If you haven’t tried it yet, DO!
This recipe can be doubled and tripled easily! Makes it so much easier to enjoy s’mores when you have a lot of people around. Also major bonus, you don’t have to build a fire.
