If you love S'mores but do not have access to a campfire, then you have to give Oven Baked S'mores a try in your oven at home.
I have been thinking a lot about s' mores lately! I have never been much of a camping out type of person...fear of spiders will do that to you...but I have always enjoyed the moment when you find yourself sitting around a campfire toasting marshmallows on the end of a stick to be added between two graham cracker squares, and pressed together with milk chocolate. The crispy crunch of the graham cracker with the warm sweet marshmallow melting the rich chocolate...there is nothing like it on earth.
S'mores are not something that I would eat every day...but they are certainly an awesome occasional treat. I have tried making them in the microwave before and have found that my marshmallow usually blows up so big that it not only makes a gooey mess and this also messes up my chocolate to marshmallow ratio, which brings me to the idea of giving it a try in the oven. The best part is that you can make multiple oven-baked s' mores on the baking sheet, which could also be dangerous as well because I will be tempted to eat more than I should.
Anywho...If you have never tried oven baked s' mores before, then please, by all means, stop what you are doing and give this recipe a try.

I got so excited about this recipe that I pinned it and accidentally closed the browser. Oops! I think this is perfect. I struggle with microwaves and even making them by a campfire. This is PERFECT.
Ha! That is so awesome!! I'm glad that you enjoyed the recipe. I struggle too with making s'mores in the microwave and campfire is not always available so this is the next best option AND everyone can enjoy their s'mores at the same time...Winning!!
