The ultimate campfire treat has gotten a major upgrade thanks in large part to bloggers and Instagram foodies. Be your own creative genius and create a new campfire tradition with one of our new s’mores creations. With so many variations, you can make your s’mores recipe truly unique. You may have to try a few of them (or all of them) to decide on your favourite.
This is the classic dessert, upgraded. The original starts with a crisp, salty graham cracker topped with rich, melty milk chocolate. Sandwich in a hot, gooey, sugary sweet toasted marshmallow (ours are usually extra charred). This is the original s’mores. We challenge you to take it to the next level with these variations.

Sugar Cone S'mores
This is an easy campfire upgrade. Pick up a few sugar cones the next time you’re in the baking aisle of the grocery store. Get the kids to stuff the sugar cones full of mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and anything else your heart desires. Cover the whole thing in aluminum foil, and roast for 8-10 minutes over a fire. Carefully peel back the aluminum foil and reveal the gooey marshmallow-chocolate wonder that you have created.
Rice Krispie S'mores
What if there is a fire ban? It happens more often than we like, but don’t worry, you can still enjoy s’mores with this recipe. Added bonus, you can make these ahead of time for your guests.
Follow the instructions on the back of the Rice Krispies box. But this time, change it up by taking out a quarter of the Rice Krispies and add in chunks of chocolate and graham crackers. Once you’ve cooled your Rice Krispie Treats in the fridge, add an extra s’mores flavour by topping the whole thing in chocolate hazelnut spread. Then top with more marshmallows. Pop it back in the oven on broil. Watch them as the marshmallows will toast fast. Cool, cut and enjoy!
S'mores Milkshakes & Cocktails
Drink your dessert, no campfire required. This can be a kid friendly milkshake or an adult alcoholic beverage. Blend ice cream, chocolate milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. For the adult version, add vanilla vodka, rum, or your spirit of choice. Next dress up the glass. Paint the inside of the glass and along the rim with chocolate sauce or chocolate spread. Roll the rim in crushed graham crackers. Then add the milk ice cream mixture. Top with marshmallows or marshmallow fluff. If you have a kitchen-grade blow torch, light up the mashmallows until they are toasted. Enjoy!
S'mores Ice Cream Sundae
Homemade ice cream sundae bars are a favourite cottage activity, and are well deserved after an active day on the water. This recipe is an easy one. Start with your favourite ice cream, then add a ton of ingredients from our handy S’mores chart. For an adult treat, douse the ice cream in Bailey’s before you add your extra ingredients.
S'mores Skillet Dip
A solid campfire staple is the cast iron skillet. Make a simple s’mores dip by coating the bottom and sides of your skillet with chocolate hazelnut spread, or scatter pieces of chocolate. Next add a generous layer from our Extras section (peanut butter is our favourite). Top with marshmallows. Roast over a campfire until you see the chocolate bubbling up the sides and the marshmallows have expanded and toasted on top. Pair this dip with classic graham crackers or a selection of treats from our Base section (listed above). Better yet, get artistic with a S’mores Charcuterie Board.
S'mores Charcuterie Board
Charcuterie boards are a huge trend right now. A s’mores charcuterie board will wow your guests and is very easy to create. Start with a large cutting board or serving platter. Get creative and build up your board with key s’mores ingredients, using variations listed above. The key to a great charcuterie board is to spread out the food, leaving very little spaces in between. Have a variety of food items and play with colours. You can fan out crackers and cookies, pile up pretzels, and scatter mashmallows. Incorporate height variations by adding a cup of chocolate cookie straws. Get fancy with patterns and remember to have fun. This pairs perfectly with S’more Skillet Dip.
