Clearly America can’t get enough of this amazing treat. Naturally, then, it’s time to take your s’mores game up a notch and try out something new.
Break out of the norm with these creative s’mores ideas. We guarantee your kids will be asking for s’more!
1. The PB&J S’more
This is not an original concept, but the peanut butter and jelly combination is always a crowd pleaser.
You need graham crackers, jam, peanut butter, and marshmallows. Put the jam on one cracker, peanut butter on the other, and the marshmallow in the middle. Simple, but very effective.
2. The S’moreo
Switch out your graham cracker foundation and use oreo cookies instead. It’s a simple switch, but you won’t regret it!

3. The Lemon Meringue S’more
If you’re a fan of lemon meringue pie, or just lemon flavor in general, this will be the s’more recipe for you. A lemon meringue s’more is refreshing and makes the perfect dessert to your campfire dinner.
Your ingredients are graham crackers, lemon curd, and marshmallows.
4. The Kid-at-Heart S’more
This chocolate chip cookie dough s’more requires a detailed recipe because you have to actually make the cookie dough. However, just make it ahead of time and bring it along in your cooler.
If you love cookie dough, the effort will be well worth it.
5. The Salty Sweet S’more
Let’s be honest. There is rarely any leftover bacon. But if, for some reason, you’ve got some leftover from breakfast or lunch, this is the perfect use.
All you need is graham crackers, a chocolate square with caramel inside, a piece of bacon, and your marshmallow.
The combination of salty and sweet will light up your tastebuds. We challenge you to just eat one!
6. The Dinner S’more
Just when you thought s’mores were only for dessert, we’re proving you wrong. Introducing… the dinner s’more!
What exactly is in the dinner s’more? Start with crackers, add a cherry tomato, then a ball of mozzarella cheese. You could also try this out with cheese and sliced deli meat.
Melt the cheese lightly over the fire, then wedge it between your other toppings and watch the gooey snack come together.
7. The Fruity Tooty S’more
You can do a few different fruit combinations for this one, depending on the tastes of those around the campfire.
Keep the graham cracker, chocolate, and marshmallows. You’re just adding the pieces of fruit to the mix.
Test out what fruit you and your family like. Strawberry and banana work very well as a starting point.
8. The Chocolate Chip S’more
This is another great s’more recipe that comes to life just by switching out the sandwich base. Chocolate chip cookies make a great addition to your s’mores. We guarantee this one is a hit with both children and adults.
9. The Spicy S’more
Add a little kick to your s’more by switching out the classic milk chocolate for dark chocolate and adding some cayenne or chilli powder. The spicy s’more is the perfect solution for foodies who want a little edge with their campfire food.
10. The Banana Dream S’more
Bananas are a great s’more addition because they’re easy to squish down and they blend with many other classic toppings.
For this s’more, add bananas and nutella to your build. If you want to take it one step further, add some peanut butter as well. You can also switch out the nutella for peanut butter if you like one more than the other.
11. The Chocolate Lover’s S’more
Want more chocolate? Kick it up a notch with chocolate graham crackers or chocolate cookies for the base. For extreme chocolate lovers, add some extra chocolate sauce after you put your marshmallow down.
12. The Switch it up S’more
For an easy twist that doesn’t require many extra ingredients, just switch out the chocolate you use. Kit Kat, Cookies n’ Creme, Snickers, Peanut Butter Cups, and Mars Bars all make delicious combinations for your next campfire treat.
13. The Island S’more
When you can’t get away to a tropical vacation, let the flavors come to you on your next camping trip. The island s’more is a great way to feel like you’re sitting on a beach, even if you’re miles away from one.
Spread some honey on your graham cracker and sprinkle some coconut flakes. The flakes will stick to the honey and stay in place when you put your marshmallow and chocolate on top.
For added flavor, choose a chocolate bar that has nuts in it. Macadamia nuts work well, and so do almonds.
14. The Hint of Mint S’more
Mint lovers, rejoice. You can have your mint chocolatey goodness with the help of Thin Mints. The Girl Scout cookies make the perfect mint chocolate s’mores because they are basically the graham crackers and chocolate all in one.
15. The Strawberry Shortcake S’more
If you love a fluffy, buttery dessert, you’ll love this s’more idea. Take a biscuit, cut it in half, and spread jam on it. Then, just add your toasted marshmallow and enjoy.
You don’t need to add chocolate to this one, but it’s delicious with it as well.
