Indoor S’mores – A Rainy Day Treat

August 10 is National S’mores Day! In honor of this fun national day, how about making these indoor s’mores in your microwave.

When the weather is raining cats and dogs outside, thoughts of camping are normally not at the front of the mind. But when bad weather hits, the kids can still have a fun camping food favorite.

Plus, when the rain is over, you can go outside and try to find a rainbow together. However, during the storm, it’s the perfect time to make these indoor s’mores!

Even when the weather is good, indoor s’mores are still a tasty treat. This delicious dessert would be a perfect addition to your 4th of July or summer BBQ parties.

These indoor s'mores are the perfect rainy day snack for those days when you can't go camping.

It’s time to make some indoor s’mores

These indoor s’mores are the perfect rainy day treat to make the kids feel as though they are on a camping trip, no matter what the weather is.

The fun part about this project is that the kids can take part in pretty much all of the steps. Nothing is too hot for them to join in easily and letting them take part in the preparation will make these indoor s’mores even more special.

This fun treat needs just a few simple ingredients: Ingredients for Indoor S'mores

  • Graham crackers
  • Regular sized marshmallows
  • Milk chocolate bars
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Zip lock baggiesS'mores station

I started the project by assembling an indoor s’mores station. It made the kids feel as though something really special was about to happen. And guess what? It was!!Crush your graham crackers

To get the project started, place your graham crackers in a zip lock bag and use a wooden rolling pin to crush the crackers. This keeps the crumbs all in one bag and easier to handle (and your kitchen won’t be a mess when you are done!)

Put sticks in marshmallows

Each of the marshmallows gets a cake pop stick inserted into the middle so that are easy to handle – and eat! 🙂 Ready to make s'mores

Now you are ready to get going. Bring everything to one spot to keep the mess to a minimum and you will be enjoying this treat before you know it.Tip the marshmallows in melted chocolate

Put the milk chocolate in a microwave bowl and heat it in the microwave for 20 second intervals. Mine took about a minute in total to get nice and melted and easy to dip the marshmallows in it.  

Take one of the marshmallows on a stick and roll the bottom 3/4 of it in the melted chocolate, leaving just a bit of the marshmallow showing.Rolling marshmallows in crumbs

Place each of the indoor s’mores on a piece of parchment paper, or tissue paper.

For the last step, I put the left over melted chocolate into an icing bag, cut the tip and drizzled the s’mores with the melted chocolate, just for an extra touch (and because I am a mad food blogger lady).Indoor s'mores close up

These indoor s’mores have the great taste of traditional microwave s’mores but are perfect for a party platter, since they stand well and are not quite so messy. I had some the next day and they still tasted great.

Making indoor s'mores is super easy and the kids will love them!

We had a blast making these indoor S’mores. For more fun indoor camping activity, see my tips for an indoor camping party on The Gardening Cook.
