Oven Baked S’mores are an easy way to make s’mores for a crowd. They’re gooey and delicious, and the best part is you don’t even need a campfire!
‘Tis the season for Summertime treats. S’mores in the oven are easy to make at home under your broiler. You can make them for yourself or as a quick treat for last minute guests.
Gooey and delicious Baked Smores
Don’t wait until your next camping trip, these s’mores will have you feeling summer vibes all year long. You don’t need a campfire to enjoy what is typically a summer treat. Make s’mores super fast, anytime, and in bulk!
As a kid, I associated s’mores with Summer campfire treats and camping memories. There is nothing more nostalgic for me than thinking about sitting absolutely exhausted around a toasty campfire waiting for that gooey, sticky, chocolatey, crunchy perfection.
I don’t go camping anymore and am rarely around a fire to make s’mores, but s’mores in the oven are the perfect solution!
Not only is making s’mores in the oven an easy way to make a lot of s’mores at once, but they’re also ready in under 5 minutes. This is not only a great treat for surprise guests, it’s also a quick fix for surprise cravings.
I also love to dress up my s’mores with sprinkles or fun dipping sauces. Caramel sauce is one of my house staples, and the perfect dipping sauce for fresh baked s’mores.
Oven Smores ingredients
- Chocolate bar: I stuck to classics and opted for a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, I love the way they melt onto the crackers. You can also use dark chocolate if you prefer.
- Graham crackers: another classic treat, Honey Maid Graham Cracker squares. They add just the right amount of sweetness to this already sweet treat.
- Marshmallows: for this recipe, I used large marshmallows to create the perfect marshmallow layer.

How to make S’mores in the oven
Wondering how to make s’mores at home? In just 5 minutes you’ll have perfect Oven Baked S’mores!
1. Preheat the oven. You’ll want to broil your s’mores on high.
2. Broil the marshmallows. Place your graham crackers on a sheet pan and place a marshmallow on top.
Place your crackers and marshmallows in the oven and broil for 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are brown and bubbly.
3. Add the chocolate. Remove from the oven top with two pieces of milk chocolate and remaining graham cracker halves.
How to store leftover Baked Smores
You can store your leftover baked s’mores (if you have any!) in an airtight container. You can place a piece of parchment paper in between each s’more to keep them from sticking to each other but unless there is marshmallow coming out the sides, you shouldn’t need to do this.
Keep the container in a cool, dry place. Room temperature is fine, but avoid exposing them to heat or direct sunlight, as this can cause the marshmallows to melt.
Oven Smores Recipe FAQs
Although the exact date isn’t known, the first formal s’mores recipe first appeared in “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts” in 1927. Loretta Scott Crew is credited for the recipe who would make them for her girl scouts by the campfire.
The recipe was called “Some Mores” and called for 16 graham crackers, 16 marshmallows, and eight bars of chocolate broken in two.
There are many different ways to make s’mores without a campfire. Searching online you might even find instructions on how to make s’mores with a candle! However, an oven or stovetop will probably be your best (and safest) option.
Yes! You’ll want to keep your marshmallows about an inch or more from the coil or flame and make sure to only leave your burner on while actively cooking.
The downside to this method is that you will need to watch your s’mores very closely because they can easily start to burn, especially if cooked over an electric stove. If you have a gas stove, this method is a bit better, but you’ll need to watch for dripping marshmallows.
Yes, when exposed to heat, marshmallows will soften and eventually melt, becoming gooey and sticky.
Roasting marshmallows in an electric oven is possible, but won’t give you the same experience or flavor as roasting them over an open flame or campfire.
