S’mores on the Grill
Whether you’re a kid, an adult, or somewhere in between, s’mores are a classic outdoors dessert. Since s’mores are usually cooked over an open flame at campfires, it is not particularly surprising that grilling s’mores is a great way to prepare this popular dessert. They are extremely easy to prepare and cook, ready to eat in ten minutes or less.
How to Make S’mores on the Grill
S’mores are one of the simplest and fastest things to make, especially outdoors. This makes them a great snack for the outdoors when camping or at the cottage. Since they only require to be heated up quickly, you can make them with any open flame. For a different experience than the classic s’more, you can grill them.
First, stack the ingredients as you normally would. Put chocolate and a marshmallow in between two pieces of graham cracker. Squish the ingredients together firmly, and wrap the uncooked s’more in tinfoil. From here, place your s’mores on the grill at a medium heat and leave to cook for four or five minutes. If you cook them too hot they may burn, so don’t overdo the heat. Grill them evenly for a short period and take off when ready. Open up the tin foil and enjoy! You should have hot, tasty s’mores dripping chocolate and marshmallow out the sides!
The Classic vs. Creativity
There is nothing wrong with a classic; that’s why we love s’mores and keep coming back for more! However, sometimes, a creative kick can make even the most mundane and regular treats elaborate and refreshing. S’mores are no different.
Candied Bacon S’mores
Yup, you heard that right. If you’ve never had candied bacon, you need to. But why stop there? Include candied bacon in your s’more to give it a salty, smoky rich flavor and completely change the experience. Candied bacon is easy to make too; simply coat it in brown sugar, place it on aluminum foil, and let it bake for fifteen to twenty-five minutes at at around 400℉. Simply stack this on your s’more how you regularly would and there you have it!
Salted Caramel S’mores
Adding salted caramel to any s’more is extremely easy. You can make your own caramel or buy a mixed one. All you need to do is drizzle some onto the grilled s’more; sprinkle some sea salt and there you have it!
The best part? You can still use chocolate too! Then you’re not making a salted caramel s’more but just adding salted caramel to the classic s’more. If that’s too rich for you, try leaving the chocolate out and try it on it’s own.
You can also try using different endings for your s’mores other than graham crackers. Consider stacking your s’mores inside chocolate chip cookies or rice krispie squares. These are a little creative and can completely change the experience. You can also consider changing the chocolate on the inside, supplementing regular milk chocolate with pieces of Kit Kat, Snickers, or Mars bars. These are all great ways to diversify the classic s’more.
You can even use the typical s’more ingredients to make yourself a grilled banana boat!

They require very little preparation or grill time, and they are easy to make anywhere you are. They make a great addition to any campsite or backyard gathering.
