You thought s’mores were just chocolate and marshmallows sandwiched between two graham crackers? Think again! S’mores have come a LONG way and we are here for it! I mean the classic is great and all, but who could say no to S’mores French Toast, S’mores Stuffed Strawberries, or S’mores Ice Cream Sandwiches? That’s what we thought.
This Lag B’Omer treat your family to a picnic, bonfire, and of course s’mores!
1. Giant S’mores Stuffed Cookie by Sara and Yossi Goldstein
This decadent dessert looks amazing, and tastes so special, but only takes a few minutes to prepare! I’d definitely suggest serving this warm with vanilla ice cream. If you’re feeling extra, sprinkle with Maldon salt for a perfect salty sweet bite.
2. Sheet Pan S’mores by Rachel Kor
Celebrate Lag B’omer (or any summer day… shh, we won’t tell) with these crazy easy 1-minute sheet pan s’mores! No smoke, no bonfire, just delicious s’moresy goodness right in the comfort of your kitchen.
3. Brownie S’mores Pizza by Leah Leora
Everyone will want a slice of this ooey, gooey, chocolatey, delicious dessert pizza combination of brownies and s’mores.
4. Lotus S’mores Cubes by Victoria Dwek
Sometimes it’s a mini-ware that inspires the dessert instead of vice versa. Though you can definitely make this cookie butter version of s’mores in any individual dish, I think they’re really cute (and easy to make ahead and store!) in these little cube dishes. I’ve been preparing this updated version of a s’mores dessert often and it’s been a big hit. Make them dairy for your melavah malka or parve for any other event.
5. Mudslide S’mores Hot Chocolate by Malky and Yossi Levine
All we can say is: “Heaven in a cup!” The sweet chocolate sauce, melted ice cream, and crunchy graham topping dress up our Mudslide S’mores Hot Chocolate for a simply spectacular dessert drink.
This recipe is from the Mehadrin Shavuos Cookbook.

7. S’mores Cookies by Orlie Perl
You don’t need a huge firepit to enjoy these gooey s’mores. This cookie recipe combines the two best things on the planet – chocolate chip cookies, and s’mores!
Don’t be intimidated by how many ingredients this recipe calls for, it’s a lot easier than you think. It’s also really fun to make if you have kids. It’ll keep them busy and the outcome is just amazing, and the best part is you don’t need to chill the dough first!
Growing up, I always thought marshmallows tasted like soap. I still think they do, but even though I don‘t like them by themselves, I absolutely LOVE them in s’mores. There’s just something about the warm chocolate and gooey marshmallow sandwiched in between two graham crackers that just feels like home.
8. S’mores French Toast by Esty Wolbe
S’mores French Toast is everything we want in this summer’s most decadent snack. Spread with Gefen Marshmallow Fluff and Elite Chocolate Spread, then breaded with graham cracker crumbs and fried. Delicious!

11. S’mores Trifle by Victoria Dwek
This past August, I wrote about one of my favorite moments of my summer vacation, up somewhere in a remote mountain lodge (it’s inevitable that dozens of Jewish families happen to find the same remote spot). Every evening after dinner, we’d take the skewers, marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars I had brought along and stand around the campfire, trying to get a good toast on our marshmallows. It wasn’t easy. We usually caught the tail end of the fire, when the logs were all burnt out, and there were just a few sputtering flames. We fought for position to let the weak flames toast our marshmallows. The best part was when the marshmallows caught on fire: real toastiness. When I tasted this dessert, I was back up in the mountains. But this time, I didn’t have to fight for the fire: because my kitchen torch is mine alone.

15. S’more Madness by Rivky Kleiman
A totally scrumptious and addictive treat. Be forewarned that you won’t be able to stop at one.
16. S’mores Parve Ice Cream Sandwiches by Sina Mizrahi
To me, “barbecue dessert” instantly translates to s’mores. There is no more fitting end to a summer cookout than the taste of burnt marshmallow and the crunch of graham crackers, contrasted with velvety melted chocolate. I gave this classic a twist, adding an ice cream element, because as far as I’m concerned, ice cream in the summer is compulsory. Best of all, these store well and can be made ahead of time.
17. Apple Smores Tartlets by Faigy Grossman
Amazing combo! The flavors of the apple filling and s’mores ingredients come together to create a fantastic tasting dessert/miniature to present to your family and friends!
18. S’mores by Esther Deutsch
