Cooking with Carrie

For a s'more you can eat with a spoon, try this parfait that alternates layers of graham crackers and chocolate ganache with a mixture of peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and marshmallow whip. Plain old pudding is so jealous.

No-Bake Frozen S’mores Bars

 Best S'mores Recipes

Rachael White

Heavy cream and loads of chocolate chips make these bars super rich and decadent. The fact that they're no-bake and frozen makes them easy to make and store. Whip up a batch and stash them behind the broccoli for last-minute entertaining or -- who are we kidding -- a reward at the end of the day.

Jaclyn/Cooking Classy

This s'more snack looks fancy but only takes about five minutes to make. Cut graham crackers into circles with a round cookie cutter, top with marshmallows and pop under the broiler until brown. While still hot, top with a Hershey's kiss or a Rolo. Instant, perfectly melted mouthful of s'more.

Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife

File this one under "Why didn't I think of that?!" Drop mini marshmallows and chocolate chips inside store-bought dough and roll into a crescent shape. The result is an ooey-gooey pocket of yumminess inside a flaky shell. Genius.

S’mores Cups

Pampered Chef

If a s'more and a cupcake had a baby, this would be it. To form the base of these tiny treats, press a mixture of graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter into the cups of a mini muffin pan. Add a rectangle of chocolate bar and a marshmallow to each cup as it bakes. Now that's a little bundle of joy.

Megan Pence

Golden Grahams cereal makes up the majority of this treat, so we won’t hold it against you if you want to eat it for breakfast. It's basically the s'mores version of a Rice Krispie treat, and it might become a standard in its own right.

This s’more-filled banana is totally ap-pealing! (Sorry, we couldn't resist.) Simply cut a banana down the middle and stuff it with marshmallows, chocolate chips, graham crackers and nuts. Wrap in foil and bake in the oven for 10 minutes for a "banana split" that's almost kind of healthy.
