For the Graham Crackers:
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 5 oz all-purpose flour
  • 5.25 oz whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 5 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 6 oz brown sugar, packed
Topping for Graham Crackers:
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
For the Marshmallows:
  • Homemade marshmallow recipe (available in various online tutorials like SugarHero)
For the Chocolate:
  • High-quality chocolate like Trader Joe’s bittersweet chocolate or your choice


  1. Make the Graham Crackers:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, and honey. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine both flours, salt, and baking soda. Add the cold, cubed butter until the mixture becomes coarse crumbs. Gradually incorporate the brown sugar, followed by the milk mixture, until a smooth dough forms. Wrap and chill the dough overnight.
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut into squares and place on a baking sheet. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the squares. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden and crisp. Let cool completely.
  2. Assemble the S’mores:
    • Switch the oven to broil and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Place graham cracker squares face down, and top each with a piece of chocolate and a homemade marshmallow.
    • Broil for 20-30 seconds, watching closely to ensure the marshmallows toast without burning. They should puff up and turn golden brown.
    • Top each with another graham cracker, pressing gently to form a sandwich.


  • Precision: For best results, use a kitchen scale to measure the ingredients, particularly flours and sugars, to ensure accuracy.
  • Watchfulness: Keep a close eye on the S’mores under the broiler, as the marshmallows can quickly go from toasted to burnt.
  • Storage: Store any unused graham crackers in an airtight container to keep them crisp.

Perfect for a family fun night, a gathering with friends, or simply to satisfy a craving, these S’mores bring a touch of nostalgia and a taste of the great outdoors indoors.
