Ultimate S’more

When making this deluxe campfire treat, look for square marshmallows; they fit the graham crackers better and give chocolate a wider surface to melt on. This recipe first appeared in our June/July 2013 issue along with Samira Kawash’s article Campfire Classic.

This deluxe campfire treat is the ultimate combination of crispy graham cracker, gooey marshmallow, and perfectly melted chocolate.
Yield: serves 2


  • 4 large marshmallows
  • 5 (2 1/2″) square graham crackers
  • 2 (1.55-oz.) milk chocolate bars, preferably Hershey’s, halved
  • 2 (12″) wooden or metal skewers


  1. Build a hot fire in a charcoal grill or set a gas grill to medium-high. Thread marshmallows onto 2 wooden or metal skewers, 2 marshmallows per skewer; hold skewers over grill 4″ above heat. Grill, turning as needed, until marshmallows are puffed and charred in spots, 4-6 minutes. Place 1 marshmallow on top of 1 graham cracker and top with half a Hershey bar. Continue layering crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate until you have made a tower; if chocolate isn’t melted, wrap s’more in aluminum foil and grill 1-2 minutes until gooey. Serve immediately.
