While s’mores are a classic summer treat, they can be messy and aren’t able to be made in advance. Which is a shame, because when you think about summer desserts, frozen treats and s’mores usually top the list! This is exactly why I love snacks that capture the flavors of summer and are easy to make. Hence these delicious s’mores bites we’d like to show you today.
With marshmallow, graham cracker, and chocolate, all of the necessary s’mores ingredients are included. And if you’d like to brown the marshmallows you can do that as well by broiling them for a couple of minutes to really get that authentic s’more taste!
This recipe also comes in handy because it includes only five simple ingredients and doesn’t take long to make! Furthermore, all of the ingredients are likely items you already have at home, so no need to purchase anything too crazy. If you’re looking for some sweet treats to bring on those summer vibes, give these a try!
The five ingredients needed to bake these S’mores Bites are:
- Graham Crackers
- Powdered Sugar
- Milk Chocolate (such as Hershey’s candy bars)

The most difficult part of baking these bites is crushing the graham crackers at the beginning. We found it easiest to place the graham crackers on one layer of Saran wrap, and then placed another layer of Saran wrap over the crackers and used a rolling pin to crush them finely. It’s essential that they’re crushed finely, as the graham crackers, powdered sugar, and butter will serve as the “crust” for the bites.
We also utilized mini muffin baking cups with the mini muffin pan to make removing the s’mores bites from the mini-muffin tin easier.
Once the graham cracker base has baked for a few minutes, place a piece of chocolate on the graham cracker base, then place a cut marshmallow sticky side down on top of the chocolate.
Once removed and cooled, we kept them in a sealed container and enjoyed them over the course of a few days!
