S'mores Hacks That Will Transform the Way You Do Dessert

The s'more is an American classic, but there is more to this treat than just heavenly chocolate, gooey marshmallows, and flaky graham crackers. You can upgrade your favorite s'mores recipe by changing the combination of toppings and fillers while staying true to the traditional format.

With these s'mores hacks, you can combine some of your favorite flavors into this classic dessert.

Swap Graham Crackers for Madeleine Cookies

Madeleine cookies are traditional French cakes that are small and often referred to as sponge cake cookies. Their distinctive shell shape is perfect for holding together ingredients, namely your preferred gourmet chocolate and marshmallow. Madeleines are ideal for striking the perfect balance between soft and toasty.

Use Flavored Chocolate

While milk chocolate is the gold standard for s'mores, you can multiply the flavor of your dessert by infusing the sandwich with a flavored chocolate bar. Some of the best options for gourmet s'mores are:

  • White chocolate
  • Raspberry chocolate
  • Sea salt and caramel chocolate
  • Dark chocolate with orange zest

You can also add a burst of fruit flavor by adding fresh strawberry to the middle of your Madeleine s'mores.

Add Peanut Butter

If you are a fan of peanut butter desserts, you may enjoy adding this flavor to your s'mores. Peanut butter and chocolate make a delightful flavor combination, and the peanut butter will help hold the s’more together. 

Be mindful that peanut butter thins as it is heated, so it's best to add only a small amount as you find the correct peanut butter-to-Madeleine ratio.

Make It To-Go

If you love s'mores but dislike the mess, you can make them in a Mason jar instead. Blend melted marshmallows with your favorite ice cream and top with melted chocolate and a graham cracker crumble. This is the easiest way to make a mess-free dessert that you can enjoy on the go

With these simple hacks, you can take your s'mores to the next level and wow your friends and family. Have fun experimenting with your s’mores and get creative with various snack options from 360 World Snacks. You may discover a new favorite flavor combination that becomes a staple in your home.
