Make s’mores night even s’more fun with a loaded S’mores Tray that let’s each person build their own s’mores creation – the possibilities are endless!
Few things scream summer more than a night with friends and family fueled by s’mores! Such a fun and yummy way to bring everyone together and enjoy the classic summer sweet treat. It’s just hard to beat a perfectly-roasted marshmallow and melty chocolate in between two crunchy graham crackers. Gimme s’more!
From a day spent in the backyard by the pool to a cozy movie night on the couch, we love to bring the fun of camping to our home with a S’mores Tray. While we enjoy the classic combination of crispy graham crackers, melty chocolate, and gooey marshmallows, it’s so fun to get creative and mix it up with variety of chocolate candies, flavored marshmallows and even cookies instead of graham crackers.
No campfire, no problem! At home, we use our fire pit or fireplace to roast marshmallows, but there are so many easy ways to bring the s’mores experience into your own house without a full flaming fire. You can use your stovetop or even your oven to get those marshmallows roasted to perfection. On a gas stovetop, simply skewer your marshmallows and use the flame just as you would with a real fire. In the oven, just top a graham cracker (or whatever you’re using as your base) with one or two marshmallows, and place it in the oven underneath the broiler for a minute or so. If you’re using this method, make sure to watch the marshmallows closely underneath the heat, because they will roast quickly. And always, always supervise children when making s’mores with fire!
With a s’mores tray like this, everyone can get involved and build their dream s’mores creation. Simply arrange all of your ingredients on a sheet pan, serving tray or wood board and let the fun begin! Some of our favorite s’mores tray components include:
- Regular, chocolate, and/or cinnamon graham crackers
- S’mores Mallows, large marshmallows, gourmet-flavored Smashmallows
- Milk and dark chocolate bars
- Chocolate peanut butter cups
- Ghirardelli assorted chocolate squares
- Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Creme, Hershey’s Gold or Nestlé Crunch Bars
- Pretzel crisps
- Spreads like peanut butter or Nutella
- Sliced bananas and strawberries
- Fudge Stripe Cookies (or even Girl Scout cookies!)
- Chocolate chip cookies such as Chips Ahoy
- Ritz crackers
If you haven’t seen the S’mores Board from my Beautiful Boards cookbook, (pages 138-139) you are sure to be inspired by it as well. It’s an interactive board covered with incredible s’mores building options along with a s’mores dip and s’mores snack mix. The ultimate s’mores experience!
It really is such a simple yet special way to serve s’mores! Everyone loves the experience and begs to do it again night after night. This is s’mores night, done right, especially with so many delicious possibilities! Here’s to many sweet nights with your family and friends filled with sweet s’mores and even sweeter memories!
