S’mores are addictive. No doubt about it. You can’t eat just a couple s’mores without craving more ooey gooey roasted marshmallow chocolatey goodness.
Inevitably, we run out of graham crackers before we run out of marshmallows and chocolate. But, who wants to leave a campfire mid evening? Plus, you might be several miles away from a store if you’re actually camping out.

Make S’mores Without Graham Crackers: 11 Ways
Bonus, I think all of these alternatives are much more delicious than graham crackers. Graham crackers are great for making a pie crust but the plain versions are low on flavor, in my opinion.
- French bread (my favorite, think of a low budget version of a chocolate croissant with roasted marshmallow. You can toast the bread or not. Butter optional. We made these last weekend. Mr. 46 thought I was nuts until he ate one.)
- Cookies (chocolate chip would be great, I’ve used Nutter Butters quite successfully, homemade gingersnaps, Anna’s Ginger Thins, sugar cookies.)
- Brownies (two slices of brownie melded together with marshmallow and chocolate might be too much of a mouthful. You could just use one brownie as a base)
- Broken ice cream cones (waffle or sugar cones would work best)
- Saltines or Ritz crackers
- Pretzel crisps
- Pretzels (messy)
- Potato chips (think chocolate covered potato chips. Potato chips with ridges would probably be best.)
- Strawberry slices (use a large or jumbo-sized strawberry and slice it vertically. This might be messier than most versions.)
- Pound cake slices (like with brownies, two slices of pound cake glued together with marshmallow and chocolate might be too big of a mouthful but you could always use one slice for a topless s’more.)
- Waffles (homemade or frozen, just toast first. I haven’t tried this yet but it sounds really good).
It seems that the history of s’mores is a bit murky but related to the girl scouts and boy scouts. The first mention anyone has found of s’mores was in a girl scout book called Tramping and Trailing.
Tell me how you like your s’mores. What do you use to make them when you run out of graham crackers? What about those flavored marshmallows? Love em or hate em? Tell me in the comments.
If you love s’mores, I bet you love marshmallows. Have you ever made your own marshmallows? I made a batch last winter and it was much easier than I expected.
