6 Recipes for Creative S'mores
You can probably guess where we are going with this simple but delicious twist on the classic s'more. Simply replace the graham crackers with Oreos, and add the chocolate based on your taste preference. The chocolate cookie and creamy fondant filling are enhanced with a gooey roasted marshmallow.
2. Cookie Butter S'mores
Cookie butter is a delicious spread that is made from ground speculoos cookies. It has a sweet and nutty flavor similar to a gingerbread that is perfect for fall-time s'mores. To make a cookie butter s'more, simply spread cookie butter on one graham cracker and top with a toasted marshmallow and another graham cracker.
3. Sweet and Salty S'mores
Prefer a salty snack over something sweet? Grab a box of salted snack crackers like Ritz for a savory twist on this fireside treat.

You can put the marshmallow roasting sticks away for this one. If you want the flavor of a delectable s'more on the go, look no further.

6. Candied Bacon S'mores
Candied bacon is a sweet and salty treat that is perfect for adding to s'mores. To make candied bacon, simply coat bacon strips with brown sugar and bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy.

Additional Tips for Making Unique S'MoresIf you've got a group gathering, try creating a s'mores bar with a variety of different add-ons for any s'mores. Many delicious add-ons, like peanut butter or pretzels, are already staples in the house. Just grab them with your roasting sticks and marshmallows on your way to the backyard bonfire.
- Experiment with different types of chocolate. Instead of using a traditional milk chocolate bar, try using dark chocolate, white chocolate, or even a flavored or filled chocolate bar. Ghirardelli chocolate squares - filled with sweet caramel or tart raspberry - are the perfect size to add to your graham crackers.
- Add other spreads to your s'mores. Some popular additions include peanut butter, Nutella, pretzels, bacon, and even fresh fruit.
- Get creative with your presentation. Instead of simply sandwiching a marshmallow and chocolate between two graham crackers, try serving your s'mores in a more creative way. For example, you could try dipping s'mores into a melted chocolate fondue, or an open-face smore's with chocolate on top.
