These are our go-to s’mores when I am too tired to light up our fire pit or it is too hot to turn on the oven.

When I first made these microwave s’mores, we had an electric stovetop. Without an indoor flame (such as the flame from a gas stove) enjoying s’mores always involved lighting up the fire-pit or turning on the oven and waiting.

But, with this easy and quick spin on s’mores, we can enjoy s’mores in less than 5 minutes!

When school let out for summer, I was so looking forward to longer, lazier, schedule-free days!
But, I feel I blinked and June slipped by!

Longer, lazier, and schedule-free has turned into zany and super busy…now don’t get me wrong…I like busy…I thrive on busy, so I really shouldn’t complain…

But… being constantly busy makes me just want to take a break, every now and then…and, have a weeknight dessert of some chocolate – in S’mores form!

But, Atlanta has a ban on burning right now…
Some people say fire-pits are a no-no and some others disagree…
I’d rather err on the side of caution; so…
I chose to make my s’mores indoors – in a microwave

Inside Out Microwaved Smores

What is the best part about making s’mores indoors in a microwave?

  1. They are ready in less than 5 minutes
  2. They are so easy
  3. You can get the kids involved
  4. These indoor s’mores are inside-out!

Instead of chocolate sandwiched with graham crackers, you have crushed graham crackers sandwiched with chocolate!
To a chocoholic like me – THIS is a dream!

Weeknight Dessert

The idea for these popped into my head when my daughter and I saw a special Hershey s’mores display as we were bustling through our neighborhood Walmart.

It had been a while since we had had s’mores so we brought home a 6 pack – of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars! A packet of Honey Maid Graham Cracker Squares (which are the perfect size for s’mores of all sorts; as well as a packet of Kraft’s Jet-Puffed Marshmallows also made their way home with us. But, you can use YOUR FAVORITE chocolate bar, graham crackers, and marshmallows.

This recipe is so super simple – and, if your schedule is super busy like mine has been, it is also super quick! It would be perfect for a Weeknight Dessert or Summer Get-Together.


Lat’s start our watches and make the inside-out microwave s’more today…

#LetsMakeSmores In A Microwave Steps 1 to 2

• I started off by breaking 4 bars of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate into pieces and layered them on the bottom of a microwave-safe dish (60 seconds)

• I microwaved this for 30 seconds, I took a quick look at them and microwaved them for another 20 seconds (50 secs + 60 secs = 110 secs)

• My daughter helped by pounding up 2 sleeves of Honey Maid Graham Squares – using a sandwich bag and her hands (50 secs + 110 secs = 160 secs)

#LetsMakeSmores In A Microwave Steps 3 to 4

• I then topped the chocolate with the graham crackers and sprinkled 3 tablespoons of lactose-free milk on them and microwaved them for 20 seconds (20 secs + 160 secs = 180 secs)

• I added a cup of Kraft’s Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows to the top and microwaved this for another 30 seconds (30 secs + 180 secs = 210 secs)

• I removed this dish from the microwave and added some pieces of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and Hershey’s Cookies And Cream Bars to the top and microwaved it for another 25 seconds (25 secs + 210 secs = 235 secs = 3.91 minutes)

And, dessert…

…was ready!

The only con to this recipe is that my daughter and I couldn’t agree on the best way to eat it!

I suggested a Graham cracker and she suggested a spoon! What would you use?

Delicious Inside-Out Smores #LetsMakeSmores

These Inside-Out S’mores are pretty versatile; you can use more chocolate on the top, covering up all the marshmallows; or, you can even use a different type of Hershey’s Chocolate &/or a different type of Kraft’s Jet-Puffed Marshmallows… but either way, this is a quick and easy dessert solution – with no need to turn on your oven or stoke your fire-pit!

Over a Fire, or in a microwave, or in an oven, or in a fireplace…what’s your favorite way to make S’mores?

  1. […] was that time when I shared our favorite microwave s’mores recipe on here. Then there was that s’mores mug […]

  2. This looks like the perfect dessert for the weekend! Also great photography!

  3. Andrea says:

    When I make this I will use dark chocolate LOL. and my marshmallows will be caramel and vanilla swirled ones.
    I have to use the dark chocolate because I have a friend that would love these and is very allergic to milk

  4. Lucy says:

    Does it have to be lactose free milk?

  5. Tara says:

    OMG this looks amazing! I would definitely need some graham crackers too!

  6. Stephanie says:

    What a great recipe idea! I’m completely on team graham cracker for dipping. It just makes sense! #client

  7. Wait…are you telling me that you don’t eat desserts on weekdays?? Have I been doing it all wrong? I guess that explains my weight….

    Mmmm…love s’mores, and these even more because are made inside with less mess.

  8. I only learned about s’mores after I started a food blog, shasi … but now I know all about them, or certainly enough to know that this is a pretty cool idea! Excellent photos, too! 🙂

  9. cookwithmanali says:

    my mouth is watering just looking at the pictures!!!

  10. Emanuele @ guyslovecooking says:

    Wow, never really thought of that. Seems almost too good to be true, only 5 min and have that????
    I have my last 2 episode of Games Of Thrones to watch tonight. I guess that could be it then !

    • Shashi says:

      Ha! Emanuele – this actually took a little bit less than 5 minutes – as long as you have all the ingredients – its wham, bang, done! Though, I am not sure if you can sit still after eating this! 🙂

  11. spicedblog says:

    I’ve never made s’mores dip in a microwave like this, but it looks incredible! And did I read that right? 5 minutes? Sign me up for that one! We usually like smores outside over the fire pit, but we don’t get the fire pit out all that often…it’s a bit of a pain. But I’m all about 5 minutes and indoor! As far as how to eat these, I suggest shoving my face directly into the pan. Is that allowed? 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      Haha – YES, it most definitely is allowed – I wonder why Lil Shashi and I didn’t think of THAT method! So easy – so efficient and no ooey gooey spoons to wash up!
      Oh – and this can be pulled together on a grill too – using a skillet – in fact, we’ve thrown all the ingredients into a skillet, covered it with foil, and voila!

  12. Anne says:

    This is genius!!!! Espesh because it takes less than 5 min and I can whip it up in a flash!!!

  13. Joanne says:

    Summer definitely calls for s’mores! And since I don’t have a fire pit of any kind, I am loving this indoor version.

  14. Angie@Angie's Recipes says:

    This looks decadent! is too short, so why not?

  15. Shashi, I have always felt that this well-known manner of serving S’mores was wrong or at least outdated. I just wasn’t able to figure out the solution. And here we go! That’s just the genius idea! We don’t need making small individual S’mores anymore – it’s time to make them in a large bowl!

    • Shashi says:

      Hahaha – You are spot on Ben! Not only is the whole individualized size option eliminated, but the long wait for the marshmallows to melt (and the frustration of burnt ones) over the fire, is eliminated too! 🙂

  16. harrietemilys says:

    Mmmm, this recipe is amazing!!! S’mores are so delicious but I rarely get to eat them here in England. This recipe is a perfect way for me to enjoy them at home – I love the way you made it an inside out version, so creative! The photos are mouth-watering too!

  17. Such a cute idea! Love this dip, perfect for summer!

  18. What an awesome treat! Love this idea.

  19. What a great quick dessert idea! I love this. And using the microwave is genius. No oven and heating up the house. A win win in my book!

    • Shashi says:

      The microwave worked well in helping keep this under 5 minutes…might have been longer in the oven with all the preheating and all..BTW – Thanks so much Cyndi

  20. Marye says:

    YUM! WHat a great idea! Pinning!

  21. Ashley says:

    Oh s’mores, how I love you!! I feel like I wouldn’t be able to be trusted around this!!! Have a wonderful holiday weekend Shashi!!

    • Shashi says:

      Haha – Ashley – one time, when I made this for myself, I had to quarter the ingredients – or I would not be able to trust myself around it either 😉 Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  22. In a starred restaurant they would call this dish “Deconstructed S’mores with Marshmallow reduction and dollops of semi-sweet chocolate” and they would charge at least 20 bucks for it.
    It’s that awesome!

    • Shashi says:

      Dang – now I wish I had named this A “Deconstructed S’mores with Marshmallow reduction and dollops of semi-sweet chocolate” Recipe!
      Thanks Mike!

  23. Less than 5 minute smores? Sign me up. I actually crave smores frequently but I have some tragic news to share with you. The do NOT sell graham crackers in HK. Yep, you heard me right. I have tried making smores with digestive biscuits from the UK but it is just not the same. 🙁 As there really is no place to make a bonfire in HK you will also see me taking a marshmallow on the end of a skewer to cook over the gas stove. So sad…Wishing you a super holiday weekend and take care!

    • Shashi says:

      Hey Bobbie – UGH – here I was thinking that graham crackers were everywhere! Have you tried making them in a skillet over a stovetop or even in the oven? it turns out more like a dip – but it’s still the same taste – with graham crackers…
      Hope your week is off to a great start!

  24. I love this idea, mostly because I love s’mores but never think to make them unless I’m around a campfire. ….which makes NO sense!

    • Shashi says:

      Haha – I found myself slapping my head when i saw your PLANTAIN SWEET POTATO TACOS WITH GUACAMOLE – I love plantains – never ever had them in tacos though! Makes NO sense! 🙂

  25. Anu-My Ginger Garlic Kitchen says:

    OH my goodness! This is such an incredible delight, Shashi! So quick, easy and full of YUM! Absolutely stunning!

  26. I have never had s’mores! I so want those marshmallows. Maybe something to try the next time we have kids over at our house 🙂

  27. hotlyspiced says:

    It’s Friday afternoon here and every Friday night we like to curl up on the couch and watch a movie. A movie snack like this would be very welcome. Love the combination of ingredients xx

  28. This is so genius… will I ever stop saying that to you about your recipes? xo
