You know what I love about fall? S’mores. The warm gooey marshmallow melting the rich chocolate held together by two crispy graham crackers & if you are lucky there is some salty peanut butter in between!
Unfortunately, between bad weather, horrible allergies, or no fire pit, getting your hands on a delicious s’more can be near impossible. After several camping trips with my grandparents my grandfather knew my sister and I loved s’mores so he taught us a way to roast them indoors. Over the years I have also learned of some other ways to cook marshmallows indoors so today I thought I would share with you 3 Ways to Make S’mores Indoors!
1. Use your fireplace
Yes. This one is pretty basic, but it had to be included. Just because the fire isn’t outside under an open sky doesn’t mean you can’t use it for roasting marshmallows. Plus it can even be more cozy if you pile up some big comfy pillows and snuggle up with some warm blankets!
2. Use your stove
This is the way my grandfather taught my sister and I. Simply roast your marshmallow over the burner – like it’s a campfire – at low to medium heat! Just be careful! I remember my mother not being too thrilled he taught us this, but my sister & I were very happy!
3. Use your oven
This is the best option for a sleepover or a rained out camping trip or anytime you want to make a large number of s’mores quickly for your sugar hungry guests. Simply line a baking sheet with foil – for easy clean up – place the graham crackers on the sheet, then layer them with the chocolate on one side & then the marshmallows on the other side. Place them in the oven on the middle rack at 400º & watch them like a hawk. They will be golden brown on top in a minute or two & all you have to do is top them with another piece of graham cracker and enjoy!
Note: Anytime you are using a fireplace, stove, or oven you need to be careful – especially if there are children around. S’mores can be fun to make indoors but don’t forget how quickly they can catch on fire! Be careful, be safe, & have fun!
