Oven s’mores can be made anytime, regardless of the weather or location. They don’t require a campfire or special equipment, making them accessible for everyone. I’m telling you, once you make indoor s’mores you’ll have them more than twice at year camping! You could even have them at the end of a delicious foil packet dinner, like this salmon one or the classic hamburger style, to have a whole outdoorsy style meal!

Recipe FAQs

When making oven s’mores should I line the baking sheet?

I like to line the baking sheet with parchment paper because it makes for a super clean s’more making experience. 

What chocolate is best for s’mores?

If you are looking for a classic s’more you will want to use milk chocolate. You can also mix it up and use white chocolate, dark chocolate, Nutella, or Reeses peanut butter cups. 

What is the best marshmallow to use for oven s’ mores?

I like to use jet puffed marshmallows or the marshmallows that are made specifically for s’mores. I’ve heard success from using marshmallow creme too.

Expert Tips

  • Layer Ingredients Strategically: Place the chocolate on the graham cracker before the marshmallow. This helps the chocolate to melt more uniformly as the marshmallow toasts. Additionally, consider breaking the chocolate into smaller pieces for more even melting.
  • Monitor Closely and Adjust Positioning: Keep a close eye on the s’mores while they are in the oven, as the marshmallows can go from perfectly toasted to burnt very quickly. If necessary, rotate the baking sheet for even toasting, and adjust the rack position to find the sweet spot between too close and too far from the broiler.

Instructions 

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper (or even foil), this helps to make clean up a breeze.
  • Break your graham cracker in half and place it on the baking sheet. Place the marshmallow on one half and the chocolate on the other half.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 2-4 minute or until the marshmallow is big and puffy and lightly brown.
  • Remove from the oven.

Notes

  • I normally make these when my kids have friends over to play and just make as many as will fit on my pan. Feel free to scale this recipe up to accommodate more servings.
  • I played around with broiling the marshmallows for just a few seconds to get a little more color on them, feel free to do that at the end if you’d like. I found though that they went from golden to charred so fast I didn’t feel like it was worth doing. 
  • Don’t be afraid to play around with the types of chocolate or candy that you use. You just might discover a new favorite!
  • While you could store leftovers in an airtight container if you have some, they really are best enjoyed immediately while everything is still melty and warm.
