How to Make S’mores in a Jar – Easy Recipe For Indoor S’mores!
I love s’mores; how about you? (I know I’m not alone here because there’s totally a “National S’mores Day.”) In my mind, nothing says “summer” quite like s’mores. This campfire fav has been a tradition for years and years, so it came as a bit of a surprise to me that there are s’mores recipes out there. In fact, there are lots of s’mores recipes out there. There are all kinds of ways to dress this summer snack up from how to make a low fat s’more to recipes for indoor s’mores.
No offense to those “how to make a low fat s’more” recipes, but today I want to focus on s’mores recipes for the great indoors. That way you can enjoys’mores year round. I mean stores have Christmas in July sales so why can’t you celebrate National S’mores Day in August (it’s on August 10th) and then again in the middle of winter? Be a rebel. Go for it. 😉
I’m sure you already know how to make s’mores the traditional way (with a campfire and flaming molten marshmallows), but you probably don’t have a recipe for indoor s’mores. I know I didn’t. So, let’s change that. Oh, and if you couldn’t guess, this s’mores recipes is in a jar. A Mason jar.
Anyway, this recipe for indoor s’mores has all the trappings of your traditional s’mores recipes…just a little different. For one, you don’t have to build a campfire to pull this off. Nope, for your off-season National S’mores Day you can just use your plain old stove top! 🙂

The ingredients listed below for this s’mores recipes will fill 2 jars.
2 chocolate bars
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup marshmallow fluff (divided)
10 graham crackers (rectangles)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 pint sized wide-mouth Mason jars
1. Break the chocolate bars into small pieces.
2. In a saucepan, warm the cream until it begins to bubble.
Tip: Watch the cream closely so that it doesn’t get scalded.
3. Remove the cream from heat and add in the chocolate bar pieces.
4. After a minute or so, the chocolate pieces should begin to melt. Whisk them into the cream until you have a smooth mixture.
5. Set the chocolate cream mixture aside.
6. Place graham crackers in a ziplock bag and crush them. You can crush them with the heal of your had, by running a rolling pin over the bag, or with the flat bottom of a glass.
Tip: If you have a food processor, you could put the graham crackers in it to pulverize them.

8. Add the melted butter and mix.

12. Top with mini marshmallows.
Tip: If you’re feeling brave with this how to make s’mores recipe, you can use a blow torch to toast the tops of the mini marshmallows once they are in the jar.

Hi wonderful recipe. Can you tell me please what is the size of the mason jar?
Great Idea! How far ahead can I make these?
Do they need to be refrigerated if I ca make them the day before?
I’d leave the marshmallows off until serving time and just broil them right before serving
on the 4th of July
I wrapped the jars with red/white & blue ribbon
Hi Babette, I would keep them in the refrigerator if you are making them ahead of time. I’ve never made them earlier than the day of but I’d think as long as they are in the fridge they’d keep for at least a couple of days. Let me know how they turned out. 🙂 Kelli
