S’mores In the Oven

When you can’t make it around the campfire, this easy and baked s’mores in the oven recipe will take you right back with each bite of gooey marshmallow, melted chocolate, and graham cracker.

Oven Baked S'mores - ooey, gooey perfection!

You may remember sitting by the campfire squishing your Hershey’s chocolate together with the most perfectly roasted marshmallows between those yummy graham crackers. And nobody cared that your smile extended with chocolate at each end of your mouth. Well, we’re traveling back to those times with this recipe for s’mores in the oven.

I promise it’s a breeze to make. All you need is three ingredients: baking chocolate, graham crackers, and mini marshmallows. You layer the chocolate and marshmallows in the casserole dish and place it in the oven instead of baking each individual s’more over the campfire. But the results are still the same and just as quick (5 minutes only). You get perfectly golden brown marshmallows sandwiched between melted chocolate and graham crackers. What’s not to love, right? I’ve also included more serving suggestions below for this decadent s’mores dip.

Plus, with this recipe, you can enjoy s’mores year-round, which I fully support! This super simple recipe for s’mores in the oven is sure to wow the kids or friends anytime. And I hope you keep smiling with a big ole chocolaty grin! I hope you enjoy it!

Recipe Ingredients

  • Semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • Miniature marshmallows
  • Graham crackers

How to Make S’mores in the Oven

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a shallow 2-quart baking dish, place the chocolate in an even layer. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over the chocolate.

Bake until the marshmallows are browned and chocolate is melted, about 4 to 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve your oven baked s’mores with graham crackers, of course.

Storage

This is one of these recipes that you can’t really keep for later, but I’m sure there won’t be any leftovers anyway. If you only want to make one or two s’mores in the oven at a time to avoid wastage, check out my recipe notes below.

Recipe Notes

  • While I’m all for traditional s’mores, don’t be afraid to change things up with your s’mores in the oven.
    • Instead of graham crackers, sandwich the toasted marshmallow and chocolate between Oreos, Nutter Butters, Chip’s Ahoy cookies, or homemade snickerdoodle cookies.
    • As this makes more of a s’mores dip, serve it alongside vanilla wafers, strawberries, or even pretzels.
    • You can choose any chocolate too, like milk chocolate chips, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Ghirardelli Chocolate squares (the caramel would be DIVINE), a Hershey’s chocolate bar (of course), dark chocolate, white chocolate, almond bark, or Rolo’s.
    • Use marshmallow cream instead of marshmallows, but you’ll need to decrease the baking time as this will turn golden brown quickly.
    • You can also normal or jumbo-sized marshmallows cut in half if you like.
  • Instead of making a s’mores dip, place the marshmallows on one cracker and the chocolate on the other on a cookie sheet and broil for 1 to 2 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they burn quickly! Then simply make a sandwich and enjoy! Make one at a time or enough for the entire family.

  1. Christy – now that is something I’m going to have to make really soon. Was thinking, it would be good served with those little graham cracker sticks too. Make it easy to dip it out that way!

  2. Just ordered three copies of the magazine. All your recipes feed my family, but your inspirational thoughts feed my soul. Thank you, Christy!

  3. Just ordered the magazine! Can’t wait for it to arrive ( I just love a good casserole!) Thanks for your blog. You really inspire me and I adore your attitude on life. You are a beautiful person!

    1. Hey Chris! These are exclusive to Taste of the South publications, I think there is one exception that can be found in Come Home To Supper. I have a column in each issue of Taste of the South with a full menu of recipes that can only be found in the magazine 🙂 Thanks for asking!

  5. Christy, I am sure we would all love to have Katy Rose’s autograph next to yours cause we all know that one day she will be just as famous as her Mama!

  6. Wanted to say I am enjoying the Come Home To Supper cookbook. I had hoped to get it and see you when you had a couple of book signings in my area, but my schedule did not work. My daughter got it for me for Mother’s Day and have been trying 2 recipes a week. Thanks for cooking with normal ingredients for normal eating people. LOL *Would you be willing to sign it at the Becoming Conference? So looking forward to that weekend.

    1. Hey Teresa!!! You better believe I’d be willing to sign it! I’d be honored to 🙂 I am even more excited about Becoming now, knowing I’ll get to chat with you! Thank you so much for taking my book to heart and putting it to use!
      Gratefully,
      Christy
      P.S. I often call my recipes “normal people food”, so I got a giggle out of how you said that! lol
