Smores are a classic sweet treat that are perfect for camping, bonfires, picnics and barbecues. But what if you want to make them at home. There's a quick and easy way to make a tasty treat with your oven's broiler.
The traditional smore starts with roasting marshmallows over an open fire, chocolate melted on the graham cracker and then the marshmallow is added and sandwiched between the two crackers. It's a rich and gooey treat that kids love. It's a lot of work to go through if you want a smore at home, but there is a quick and easy way to make a dessert for kids in the oven.
Place the smores in the oven
- Set the oven's broiler on low and let it heat up
- Place three large marshmallows on a full sized graham cracker
- Place six squares of chocolate on a graham cracker
They can be placed directly on the oven racks or on a cookie tray to make it a bit easier to get the smores in and out of the oven.
Brown the marshmallows
The broiler heat will quickly brown the marshmallows. Once the marshmallows are brown, the chocolate will also be melted. This step usually takes less than two minutes, so watch the marshmallows closely.
* In the oven it's possible to make several at a time.
Put the halves of the smore together
Remove the graham crackers from the oven with the chocolate melted or at least warmed and the marshmallows browned and hot. Place the two halves together and you have a perfect oven roasted smore.
