S'mores Indoors

If the weather isn't cooperating for a campfire, there's no need to miss out on the ooey-gooey deliciousness of s'mores! Simply bring the s'mores indoors!

Along with pumpkin, s'mores are the best fall related food. Don't even try to argue with me. S'mores have chocolate, sweet and fluffy marshmallows, and crunchy graham crackers. Basically, perfection. Almost everyone has fond memories associated with s'mores whether it be spending time with your family around the fire pit at your house, making new friends around the bonfire at summer camp, or celebrating a high school sports win around a huge bonfire. And where ever there is a campfire, there are always s'mores. The two just go together. It's the combination for a perfect fall evening. 

But what do you do when you are craving s'mores and you don't have a fire pit in your back yard or a huge field nearby that is bonfire friendly? Well you make them indoors! No, I am not telling you to start a fire in your home. That is frowned upon. Instead, you can make delicious s'mores in the oven. 

I'm serious. They are just as delicious as roasting your marshmallow over a campfire and in fact, it's actually easier! And your arm doesn't get tired from holding a stick over the fire.

Making your own s'mores is deliciously easy and the marshmallow will still get nice and golden. The best part is the chocolate gets even meltier than a "traditional" s'more where the chocolate never seems to melt. 

Start by preheating your oven to 400° and lining a baking sheet with aluminum foil. You can get away without the aluminum foil but trust me, clean up will be 100x easier if you put the aluminum foil down first. 

Then break the graham cracker in half and place one half on top of the aluminum foil. On top of that graham cracker half place the chocolate and then the marshmallow. Don't place the other half of the graham cracker on top, instead set that aside on the counter. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake your s'more for 3-5 minutes or until the marshmallow is golden brown. I recommend checking on it every few minutes so that the chocolate doesn't completely melt and the marshmallow burns. 

After pulling it out of the oven, place the other half of your graham cracker on top, slowly, smushing the marshmallow a bit. And there you have wonderfully gooey and delicious s'mores.

Classic s'mores of milk chocolate, marshmallow, and graham crackers are delicious but if you are looking for a few unique ways to spice up the traditional s'more,
