With a fire always crackling in the hearth and an abundance of sugary treats on hand, there’s no better time than the holidays to get creative with your s’mores. These winter-themed creations are sure to satisfy kids and adults alike, and are just as good around the campfire or inside the coziness of your home.
Sugar cookies + peppermint bark + toasted marshmallow
Peanut brittle + marshmallow fluff + Ferrero Rocher
No Ferrero Rocher on hand? Use whatever chocolates you have.
The Dark ‘n Stormy
Gingerbread cookies + rum-soaked marshmallow + chocolate-covered candied ginger
Note: Soak marshmallows for five to ten minutes; long enough that they take on some flavor, but not so long that the sugar dissolves in the alcohol.
The Christmas Morning
Molasses cookies + roasted banana + whipped cream + drizzle of maple syrup
If you’re feeling fancy, make maple whipped cream at home by whisking a cup of heavy cream with two tablespoons of maple syrup. Bake the bananas at 400°F for 15 minutes, or until soft (drizzle them with honey or brown sugar first if you like). Or, roast them over an open flame as you would a marshmallow.
The Stocking Stuffer
Social Tea biscuits + triple sec-soaked marshmallow + dark chocolate + candied orange
For a variation, swap in a dark chocolate-covered graham cracker or biscuit instead of tea biscuits.
Mulled Wine S’more
Spice cookies + poached pear + honey + whipped cream
Use your favorite poached pear recipe, or use raw ripe pear for a fresh take.
An English Christmas
McVities Christmas Pudding Digestives + toasted marshmallow + strawberry jam
The Flying Dutchman
Caramel Stroopwafel + toasted marshmallow + toffee chocolate bar
Cinnamon graham crackers + bourbon-soaked marshmallow + nutmeg
For a more decadent version, smother an open-faced s’more with eggnog custard.
The Vegetarian Cousin
Peanut Butter Cookies + dark chocolate + roasted banana
Shortbread + cranberry Wensleydale + dark chocolate
Cheese on s’mores? Trust us, it’s better than it sounds.
