Gourmet S’Mores

S’mores – the quintessential campfire treat, conjuring up memories of crackling flames, gooey marshmallows, and melty chocolate sandwiched between crispy graham crackers. While the classic combination is undeniably delicious, there’s a whole world of flavor of Gourmet S’mores recipes waiting to be explored!

Gourmet Smores Recipes

Recently, I had the opportunity to join fellow YouTubers Diana DeLaFuente and Hilah Johnson for a Cabineering Cookoff adventure in the heart of Yellowstone National Park. After a day of culinary challenges and outdoor fun, we gathered around a crackling fire outside our Explorer Cabins in West Yellowstone, Montana, for a gourmet s’mores night!

The cabins provide each guest with their own S’mores kit, which includes the graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate.

Gourmet S’mores Ideas to Set Your Taste Buds Ablaze

Although we did make some of the traditional s’mores, we had fun making a few gourmet s’mores recipes too. Have fun experimenting with different cookies and fillings. For example, peanut butter cookies with sliced bananas and Nutella hazelnut spread. Or perhaps chocolate graham crackers with Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of chocolate! Here are a few more flavor combinations that will elevate your gourmet s’mores game:

Fruity Fusion:

  • Berry Delight: Replace the graham crackers with shortbread cookies and layer them with a fresh raspberry, a slice of your favorite melty cheese (brie or goat cheese work wonders!), and a dollop of gourmet raspberry jam before adding the toasted marshmallow.
  • Tropical Twist: Opt for pineapple chunks and toasted coconut flakes alongside the classic marshmallow and chocolate, nestled between buttery macadamia nut cookies.

Spice Up Your Life:

  • S’mores Mexican Fiesta: Spice things up with a Mexican chocolate disc, a slice of jalapeño (for the adventurous!), and a dollop of dulce de leche, all sandwiched between cinnamon sugar dusted graham crackers.
  • Smoky Chipotle Dream: Elevate your s’mores with a chipotle chocolate bar, a sprinkle of chili powder on the marshmallow before toasting, and top it all off with a dollop of mango salsa on a chipotle-infused graham cracker.

Decadent Indulgence:

  • Salted Caramel & Pretzel Perfection: Introduce a touch of sweet and salty with a salted caramel candy bar, a sprinkle of sea salt on the toasted marshmallow, and crushed pretzels in place of graham crackers.
  • Peanut Butter & Pretzel Heaven: Spread a layer of peanut butter on your graham cracker, top it with a toasted marshmallow and a piece of peanut butter chocolate, and finish it off with a sprinkle of chopped peanuts.

Just don’t forget to always add those toasty, gooey roasted marshmallows!

These are just a few ideas to get you started. The possibilities are endless! Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavor profiles, textures, and ingredients to create your own personalized gourmet s’mores masterpiece.
