Nothing says America more than S’mores, they are crunchy, sweet and chocolatey and this is one sweet treat that is a true classic from the USA. Traditionally roasted over a campfire, S’mores consist of toasted marshmallows and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two Graham crackers.

Why are S’mores called S’mores?

These tasty treats were originally called ‘Some Mores’ but it’s unknown when the name was shortened to S’mores. They can be traced back to a cookbook from the 1920’s but became a household name in the 1950’s with Boy and Girl Scouts making them a summer camp custom which are now loved by children and adults around the world.

S’mores Recipe 

If you’ve never heard of S’mores then here’s a recipe for the gooey delicious campfire snacks. At Candymail, the home of American snacks, we’ve got everything you’ll need to make tasty S’mores for all the family to enjoy. Don’t worry if cooking is not your strong point, there’s only three ingredients. 

S’mores Ingredients

Graham Crackers – A savoury cracker and another classic American snack, with a hint of sweetness, making them perfect for S'mores!

Marshmallows - These Jet Puffed Stacker Marshmallows are perfectly shaped to make the best S'mores!

Chocolate Bar – A Hershey's milk chocolate bar is the perfect fit and of course made by the masters of American Chocolate.


  1. Take one graham cracker and break it in half (one for the top, one for the bottom cracker).
  2. Cover one of the cracker halves with chocolate pieces to fit the graham cracker.
  3. Put a marshmallow (or two) on a skewer and hold it over the fire until roasted and slightly golden brown.
  4. Take the toasted marshmallow (still on the stick) and lay it on the side of the graham cracker with the chocolate.
  5. Take the other half of the graham cracker and cover the hot marshmallow, pressing down firmly enough to pull out the stick.
  6. Eat and enjoy it while warm, like a sandwich.

How to mix up your S’mores

If you’ve not got a campfire to hand, you can also cook your S’mores indoors in the oven or even the microwave. Just lay out Graham Crackers on a baking sheets, add chocolate and a marshmallow to each of them and bake for 2-3 minutes, depending how toasty you like them, then squish together with another cracker for a melty, gooey sandwich.

Another way to pimp up your S’mores is to add a different chocolate. Dark chocolate makes luxurious S’mores or why not try Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for a nutty twist.

Adding a spread to the second cracker before topping off makes a unique S’mores, you can go for a classic Nutella or Lotus Biscoff sauce or even jam and lemon curd!
