Summer nights are some of my very favorite (minus the mosquitos). I have such fond memories of gathering around the campfire while camping with my family, smoke in our eyes, laughing together and of course, eating S’mores. Personally, I was not a huge fan of S’mores until a couple of years ago when we really learned how to do S’mores the right way! I really hate it when the S’mores are super dry, and the marshmallow (despite it being hot and literally in flames just seconds before) was never warm enough to melt the chocolate. This is an actual pet peeve of mine.

One of my favorite tips to give when I am helping others organize is to organize things according to how you use them. Create a system, or in my case a caddy, that allows you to put all of your ingredients for your S’mores in one place I also recommend unwrapping everything! It is so annoying to try and pull everything out of its packaging when you have a hot marshmallow waiting to be eaten at the end of your stick!
Because I hate dry S’mores, I decided to try out a few recipes of random ingredients to see what concoctions that I could come up with. Here is a list of ideas for things that would be delicious inside your S’mores.
- Graham Crackers
- Chocolate Graham Crackers
- Flavored marshmallows
- Ice Cream toppings such as Sea Salt Caramel or White Chocolate
- Reeses Peanut Butter Cup
- Peanut Butter
- Hershey’s Chocolate
- Hershey’s Gold
- Sugar Cookies in place of Graham Crackers
- The possibilities are endless!
I would encourage you to think outside of the box when gathering your ingredients for your S’mores. There are so many different kinds of items that would be delicious with a roasted marshmallow! We tried so many different combinations and my favorite were the ones with the fruit inside! I was actually quite surprised! The combination of the crunchy Graham Cracker with the juicy berries, roasted marshmallow, and the melted chocolate was sheer perfection!
I also wanted to mention this Silver S’more maker. This is something that is great if you don’t have a firepit but you do have a grill! Just make sure to wrap your S’more in tin foil before you put it into the cage so the melted marshmallow and chocolate don’t melt down into the fire and make a huge mess. I purchased this at Target this season but couldn’t find it online so I am going to link one that is similar that I found on Amazon.
I found this caddy at Target and these have been out of stock for MONTHS, so if you are interested in one, don’t walk….run! Probably one of my favorite parts of this entire S’more caddy is the vinyl lettering that I put on the front. I found this darling word art on a website called Dawn Nicole. So if you want to make your own S’mores caddy, head on over to her website where you can download this free file to cut out and create for yourself! I also purchase these Telescoping Roasting Sticks about a year ago and I am completely in love with them! They even come in a convenient zipper pouch to it is easy to keep them all together. I went step further and painted the handles of my roasting sticks white and it matches my S’mores caddy perfectly!
