How to make s'mores on the grill

The combination of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate creates one of my favorite desserts EVER. However, the traditional way of making a s’more can be kind of a pain. Between finding the skewers, starting the fire, keeping the kids at a safe distance, toasting the marshmallows, and building the s’mores, it can leave you wondering if it’s worth it. Sure, you could try the microwave but it’s just not the same. So, today I’m sharing with you my new favorite: how to make s’mores on the grill.

I have to give credit where it’s due — my husband is actually the one who developed this plan. We had just finished cooking lunch on the grill and were craving a fun dessert. He whipped out some tin foil, found the supplies, and got to work.

Why this method of making s’mores is awesome:

  • The smores get a wonderful grilled flavor.
  • It slightly bakes the graham crackers to make them crispy.
  • Everything is in a neat little package.
  • The chocolate melts perfectly.
  • The marshmallow doesn’t catch on fire and it doesn’t balloon to 5x its original size like it does in the microwave.

While making these smore’s on a charcoal grill is my favorite way of making them, you can use this same exact method with a gas grill or your oven. If you’re in the market for a charcoal grill, check out this little portable one from Amazon.

Here’s what you’ll need to make these s’mores:

  • Graham crackers (one full sheet per s’more)
  • Milk chocolate bar
  • Marshmallows
  • Aluminum foil

How to make them:

Wrapping s'mores in foil
  1. Prepare square pieces of tin foil large enough the wrap the smores in
  1. Build the first smore in the middle of one of the foil squares and then wrap it up loosely
  1. Repeat until all or your smores have been assembled and wrapped
  1. Carefully place them on a grate over hot coals and close the lid for 60-90 seconds. That’s all it takes! Any longer and the graham cracker could burn.
grilling s'mores
  1. Use tongs to remove them from the grill and place them on a plate to cool
  1. Carefully unwrap them and enjoy! Caution – they’ll be hot!

This toasted, gooey, s’mores are so much easier than reaching for a stick and, in my opinion, they taste better too!
