Warm summer evenings are ideal for lighting the fire pit (or building a campfire) and cozy up to roasting marshmallows. But that doesn’t mean you can only eat s’mores—you know, those melted marshmallow and chocolate snacks between two graham crackers —if you start a fire. In fact, s’mores in the oven might be even better.
Because to be honest, such a fire is of course quite uncontrolled. Sometimes your marshmallow is already black on the outside, but barely melted on the inside, while other times it takes forever. And then there’s the problem of sand and other dirt outside that your s’mores can come into contact with.
Making s’mores in the oven
You don’t get all that with s’mores in the oven. Your marshmallows will all melt just as quickly there. If you cut them in half and then grill them, even both sides will be equally nice and crispy on the outside. Moreover, you can also melt the chocolate, while that is hardly possible over a fire.
And oh yes, another plus: in the winter you may not make a campfire so quickly, but you can make s’mores in the oven. This way you can satisfy your marshmallow-with-chocolate cravings all year round !
That’s how you do that
Lifehacker even shares the perfect way to do it. Place graham crackers, cinnamon biscuits or other biscuits of your choice in a baking dish. Cut marshmallows in half and place them face up on half of the cookies, then cover the other half with dark chocolate cubes.
Set the oven to grill mode and start grilling! The marshmallows are usually a nice golden brown after a few minutes, and you should also have melted chocolate and slightly crunchier cookies. You have to constantly stand by it, because things can go wrong pretty quickly after that.
Finally, put the chocolate chip cookies and the marshmallow cookies on top of each other, and your s’mores are ready in the oven!
