The combinations can keep coming – switch out the graham cracker, add a different meltable sweet. Try a fruit like berries or bananas.

Let us know if you found the perfect combo!

Remember the fire outside sets the mood, but just sharing in the decadence with friends or family is really the point. If an open flame is not possible, a microwave will do. 15 seconds in a microwave is enough. Make sure the graham cracker or cookie or waffle is on the bottom.

During this experimental stage, flame or not, try pushing the envelope a little further. Marshmallows come in all kinds of flavors, try a strawberry flavor with a dark chocolate bar or another flavor. Here a just a few new flavors:

  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • cotton candy
  • pumpkin spice

After that let the kids add even more, maybe food color or press M&M’s into the sides. Let your imaginations soar!

Once you have found the perfect combo, with the perfect marshmallow flavor, and other extras, find a great name. Make it part of the family legacy. If your s’more name is “Chocolate Explosion,” have a Chocolate Explosion Night marked on your calendar and get the family psyched for this special night!
