My husband and I went out to eat recently, and for dessert, we were ordered s'mores. It was so much fun roasting marshmallows at our table, getting our fingers sticky, and dropping crumbs everywhere. We were laughing the whole time!
I decided to try my hand at making s'mores at home, too. And it turned out to be pretty simple! Indoor S'mores are super easy to make and are perfect for serving at a party or just on a snowy night at home with the family.
The cool things about making s'mores indoors is that you can totally customize them with your favorite chocolate! Go the traditional route with milk chocolate s'mores or experiment a little. I chose three different kinds of chocolate: peanut butter cups, dark chocolate, and salted caramel chocolate.
It was so much fun roasting marshmallows inside and trying the different flavors. My husband and I each had our own faves ... and once you try this fun recipe, so will you!
Indoor S'Mores Ingredients
You only need three simple ingredients to make these scrumptious homemade S'mores ... and I'm sure you can guess what they are!
- Marshmallows - Of course, a bag of fluffy marshmallows are a key ingredient. If you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, make sure to use vegan marshmallows.
- Chocolate - Don't forget the chocolate! We always made s'mores with Hershey's Milk Chocolate growing up, but this is one place you can have fun with different flavors. I used peanut butter cups, dark chocolate, and a salted caramel chocolate bar.
- Graham Crackers - Classic graham crackers hold everything together. If you want to experiment a bit, try using cinnamon graham crackers, too.
How to Roast Marshmallows Indoors
If you've ever wondered how to roast marshmallows at home (without a campfire) ... this recipe is for you!
Roasting marshmallows on the stove is actually pretty easy. I used a gas stove burner, but you could also roast your marshmallows in a fireplace or over a sterno fuel can or a mini hibachi. The restaurant we ate at used a mini hibachi, and it was so fun to use.
To toast marshmallows inside, place your marshmallow on your skewer, then roast it over your flame. I used bamboo skewers, but metal skewers would be better and less of a fire hazard. For a gas burner, use medium-low heat.
Don't have a gas stove, sterno burner, or hibachi?
Make your s'mores in the microwave instead. Simply place a marshmallow on a graham cracker half and heat for a few seconds until hot.
Another option is to place the marshmallows on graham crackers, then cook them under your ovens broiler. Just make sure to watch them closely.
I like my marshmallows pretty well done (burnt is best!), but cook yours however you like.
When the marshmallow is cooked, sandwich it between graham crackers with your favorite chocolate. I used peanut butter cups, dark chocolate, and a salted caramel chocolate bar. But really, any kind of chocolate would work ... even flavored. So have fun experimenting with different types.
If you want to make your chocolate extra gooey, stick it on a graham cracker and pop it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds before adding the marshmallow. Mmm ...
The peanut butter cup s'more was my favorite, but all were great.
Why not set up an Indoor S'mores bar the next time you have a party. How much fun would that be?
Whatever kind of chocolate you choose, these delicious Indoor S'mores are sure to be a hit with your family and friends!
