The S’more, The Merrier: Oven S’mores Recipe

S’mores are summertime. They speak of summer camp, bonfires and roasting marshmallows on actual sticks (you know, the kind from the woods!). And when I think of them, I think about the rustic conditions of the summer camps I went to and loved. Making s’mores was the highlight of every summer camp experience of my youth. And man, did I love summer camp: swimming in murky ponds, learning to sail and windsurf, sleeping in sleeping bags. But s’mores, and the bonfires that they accompanied? Those were the best.

I mean, what’s not to love? That melty chocolate, the soft puffed marshmallows with a crisp outside and two graham crackers holding it all in place combine to make something extraordinary. It’s just magic. And it’s pretty special how it can bring together campers of all backgrounds, bonding over a common love for burning marshmallows and squashing them into sandwiches.

I can remember many a summer evening spent shoulder to shoulder with my camp friends, sticking my marshmallow toward the fire, waiting for it to turn that deep brown.

Summer 2009 – Paige’s First S’mores Experience

I’ve passed my s’mores love onto my kids. In fact, when they noticed me making Oven S’mores this afternoon, they were quick to ask who’d be eating them. They’ve been patiently waiting their first s’mores of the season. Usually, it’s had around a campfire while camping, but we haven’t been yet. Still, in the meantime, making these Oven S’mores is an easy, fast and simple way to fill the craving.

    I saw your post about 15 minutes ago – my family just polished off a batch of oven smores! Talk about instant gratification…they were wonderful (although I used Ghirardhelli dark chocolate squares – shhh).

      Jessica, I am so glad you all liked it! Totally perfect for when you want s’mores, but don’t have a campfire handy. (Cough, does anyone ever have a campfire handy? :) )

    I’m so lazy I make mine in the microwave!

  3. I love s’mores too! I must try this sometime this summer.
