It's super easy and convenient to make s'mores in the oven! You'll get to enjoy a sweet treat without needing to start a campfire!
Table of contents
It's a short and simple list. But still, let's go through the necessary ingredients:
- Graham crackers: It doesn't really matter what kind of graham cracker you use (e.g., gluten free, honey, etc.), just use whatever you prefer.
- Marshmallows: You want to use the big, fat, jumbo marshmallows here for as much marshmallowy goodness as possible.
- Chocolate: The traditional choice would be Hershey's milk chocolate candy bars, but you can use whatever you like. In the mood for dark chocolate? Use it! Want to get even crazier and use some other kind of candy, like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup? This is also an option!
How do you make s'mores in the oven?
Thankfully for you and for me, it's very easy to make s'mores in the oven! But let's talk through the steps below.
First thing's first: I definitely recommend lining your baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Melted marshmallow can be a real pain to scrape off of a baking sheet. Let's not make our lives any more difficult than they have to be, right?
Position the top oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the broiler!
Next, you'll set the bottom graham crackers onto the prepared baking sheet. Top those graham crackers with one jumbo marshmallow each (two each if you're feeling a little extra).
Place the baking sheet under the broiler, but don't walk away! Seriously. The marshmallows can go from golden brown to charred just like that.
Once the marshmallows have reached the desired degree of toastiness, pull them from the oven and press the chocolate onto the marshmallows and the other graham cracker halves on top of that.

Frequently Asked Questions
Truthfully, whatever kind you like best! Regular, honey, gluten free... follow your heart!
Hershey's bars would be traditional here, but you can use whatever kind floats your boat. You could even get really creative and use another kind of candy bar entirely. Think Reese's cups, a chocolate bar filled with caramel, you get the idea.
In my experience, no more than 2 minutes. In fact, 2 minutes was almost too long. No matter what, just make sure to keep a very close eye on the marshmallows once they're under the broiler. They go from white and fluffy to charred much faster than you'd think.
