These are seriously the most embarrassingly easy sheet pan s’mores! And you need them.
I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. Cue all the exclamation points.
And this is soooo not my regular Monday recipe. But we could all use some s’mores!
This was another “recipe” that I shared on instagram when we had my mom’s birthday two weeks ago. I couldn’t believe how many of you asked for the recipe and I hate to say, there really is no recipe! But here is the method for getting the perfect pan of s’mores, sans fire.
Now of course, disclaimer:
Yes yes YES I 100% think most of the fun with s’mores is roasting the marshmallow yourself. And just the simple act of roasting it over the fire. It totally MAKES the experience.
But! Here’s the thing. If you don’t have a fire pit, and it’s late, and you have a few family members over (if you’re doing that, right now we’re doing our immediate fam) and you all want s’mores… you’re sort of out of luck.
Sure, the microwave works. I have been known many a time to make a microwaved s’mores in a moment of desperation. I am not ashamed.
Making sheet pan s’mores is the secret though. Also, a fab idea for a bunch of kids!
The first time I made these I had a complete brain meltdown. See, I’m terrible at math (you know this) and even worse, I don’t really care that I’m terrible at math? Thank you iPhone calculators and everything else in the last ten years. I made a big sheet pan and it didn’t register that I would just be adding tops to the s’mores. I kept thinking I was combining the s’mores that were on the sheet.
So we ended up with 25 s’mores. Yes. 25.
That’s a fun mistake though, let me tell you. I was thinking we’d end up with 12, because I’d smash them together. I know. It makes zero sense. Brain meltdown!
Anyway, that’s why these are so great. You can make a LOT at once and they are all done at the same time. It’s not like you have to wait to share sticks or big skewers for roasting. At the same time, a bunch of people can enjoy their s’mores! That’s a win.
Or you can use store bought ingredients too. I like plain grahams, these big square marshmallows and lindt chocolate (because it’s the best, but also because the square fits so well on a graham!) or a peanut butter cup.
The marshmallows still get toasty and brown. I prefer them charred and on fire, but this is close enough.
The chocolate gets wonderfully melty too. Like PERFECTLY melty. You know how sometimes you might have an unmelted bite of chocolate in your s’more? That doesn’t happen with these.
The grahams get a little toasty too. Like, adding-depth-of-flavor toasty. In the best way. This makes them taste richer and nuttier.
So hi! Hello! When are you making sheet pan s’mores?!
Sheet Pan S’mores
Yield: 12 s’mores
These sheet pan s’mores are embarrassingly easy and oh so good. Perfect for a crowd, kids or when you don’t have access to a bonfire!
- 24 graham crackers
- 12 squares of chocolate lindt is my favorite, or use peanut butter cups
- 12 marshmallows
Place your oven rack on the lowest level of the oven. This is important! We’re using the broiler, and placing it on the lowest rack gives the marshmallows and chocolate a minute or two to toast and melt before burning.
Preheat the broiler in your oven to high. Place 12 graham crackers on a sheet pan. Top each with a piece of chocolate or a peanut butter cup. Top each with a marshmallow.
Place the sheet pan in the oven for 1 to 3 minutes – keeping your eye on it the whole time. This will all depend on your broiler! You want the marshmallows puffed and golden brown on top.
Remove the pan from the oven and top with the remaining graham crackers. Serve immediately.
I mean these are definitely allowed on a Monday.
