S’mores on the Grill

LAST UPDATED: Jun 20, 2021 | PUBLISHED: May 29, 2014 | By:

S’mores on the Grill make eating your favorite summertime treat easier than ever. The basic ingredients – graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate – stay the same, but the method of cooking on the grill makes the process so easy. So you can enjoy s’mores any time of the day or any time of the year – without the hassle of a campfire.

S’mores in the summertime have always been a favorite of mine. As a child, my siblings and I would roast marshmallows over a campfire in our backyard – even when it was 100 degrees outside – just to make a great s’more. 

I am happy to say that it doesn’t take a campfire to capture the summertime magic of eating s’mores. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be summertime! S’mores on the Grill eliminate the need for building a fire while satisfying that summer sweet tooth in a matter of minutes!

S’mores on the Grill bring out the best in all the ingredients of s’mores. The graham crackers are lightly toasted. The marshmallows are fluffy, warm, and gooey. And the chocolate is melty, smooth, and creamy – so much better than the hard chocolate you usually get on traditional s’mores. S’mores are supposed to be messy and gooey; that’s part of the fun!


  • Graham Crackers – use your favorite
  • Marshmallows – stacker (or flat) marshmallows work great
  • Chocolate – milk chocolate squares (or favorite type of chocolate)


  • Use peanut butter cups in place of chocolate squares
  • Try any flavor of chocolate – semi-sweet, white, caramel-filled

How to Make S’mores on the Grill

  • Warm a side burner on your grill to medium heat.
  • Place 1/2 of the graham crackers on the grill – away from direct heat.
  • Put marshmallows on top of graham crackers and close lid for 3 minutes.graham crackers with marshmallows and chocolate cooking on a grill
  • Place the other half of the graham crackers on the grill, also away from the heat. Add chocolate squares. Allow to warm for just a minute.
  • Remove from grill. Carefully press marshmallow side and chocolate side of graham crackers together. Enjoy your S’more’s on the Grill!

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve for dessert at a backyard barbecue
  • Make s’mores on the grill for a child’s party
  • Heat up the grill for a date night dessert, or just for yourself when you want to indulge

Tips for S’mores on the Grill

  • Don’t walk away from the grill; these cook very fast.
  • Keep chocolate and marshmallows centered on the graham cracker. They’ll spread out to the edges once the crackers are squished together.
  • Have everyone assemble their own s’mores and then wrap in foil. Heat in the grill for the same amount of time as above. Remove from grill, let foil cool to the touch, and then dig in to your s’mores!

  • Use whatever chocolate you have on hand. Don’t have squares? Place chocolate chips on the graham cracker.
  • Use whatever marshmallows you have. Rip large marshmallows in half and use 4 halves on the cracker. Or us mini marshmallows spread out on the cracker.
  • Assemble a lot of crackers with the marshmallows and chocolate so you’ll be ready to grill them all at once.
Can I make s’mores over a charcoal grill?

You can, you just need to make sure the s’mores aren’t right over the coals. The s’mores need to be warmed over indirect heat.

Can I store s’mores on the grill to eat later?

You certainly can save leftovers in a bag after they cool. They are definitely better served warm.

What to Do with Leftovers

You probably won’t have leftovers because you can make just the amount you need. However, if you do have some, you could freeze them in a bag and break apart to throw in a shake or as a sundae topping.

How to Serve S’mores on the Grill

  • Serve immediately off of the grill for the best s’mores experience
  • For a fancier s’mores, serve in a dish with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
