21 Ways to Make S'mores

For some people, messing with traditional s'mores is downright wrong. But if it's the taste of s'mores you crave, you're probably open to venturing outside the box (or in this case, the campfire ring) to try a twist on the classic favorite. Whether you're celebrating the end of school, planning a family campout, or just love being outdoors, these s'mores-inspired treats will satisfy your family's sweet cravings and leave them shouting, We want S'MORE!

Make traditional s'mores by roasting marshmallows over a fire or barbecue. Have you ever tried making s'mores in the microwave? Yes, ultra lazy, but super fast (12 seconds max)! If you need step-by-step instructions for either method, find them here.

If you don't have 12 seconds (or a microwave), try spreading marshmallow creme on a graham cracker and simply sprinkling with chocolate chips. Dangerously easy, but unforgettably yummy!

And finally, you never know when the urge to eat s'mores is going to hit, so it's imperative to have an Emergency S'more within reach at all times. Longtime Girl Scout leader (and SDFM editor), Lisa Gipson, makes these with her troop when heading to camp. All that's needed is mini plastic bags (available at craft stores), mini chocolate bars (or Hershey's Kisses), mini marshmallows, and a graham cracker (or two Teddy Grahams). The words on the label say: "Emergency S'more -- Tear open and eat immediately if urgent need arises."
