S'mores, short for "some mores," is a traditional campfire confection made with graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolate. The origin is unclear, but one recipe, named "marshmallow sandwich," was published in a 1920s Campfire Marshmallows recipe book.
The sweet treats are traditionally assembled and cooked over a campfire and are often associated with boys and girls scouts.
This is a classic s'mores recipe using graham crackers and chocolate bars along with marshmallows. However, the method of cooking is different. The marshmallows aren't toasted over an open fire, they're melted on the chocolate in the oven.

- chocolate bars, milk chocolate or dark chocolate
- marshmallows, standard size
Heat the oven to 350 F (180 C/Gas 4).
Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
Arrange the graham crackers on the prepared baking sheet.
Put 1 square of chocolate on each cracker. Place a standard-sized marshmallow on each piece of chocolate.
Put the pan in the preheated oven for about 4 to 6 minutes, or just long enough to melt the marshmallow and soften the chocolate.
Remove the pan from oven and put another graham cracker on top of each treat to make a sandwich.
You'll get up to 25 s'mores using a half-sheet pan.
