I don’t know who had the idea to take a bunch of dirty kids sleeping in a tent and give them marshmallows and chocolate before bedtime, but they were brilliant! S’mores are one of our family’s favorite camping traditions, and even though my kids are usually pretty happy just to have a regular s’more with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows, I occasionally like to blow their minds with something fancier.

Well, actually the truth is that we usually give the kids simple s’mores (or take the shortcut by just using these cookies and marshmallows), and then save the fancy s’mores just for the grownups after the kids are in bed. We consider it our reward for all the energy that’s required to camp with kids AND get them to fall asleep in the tent (no easy feat some nights).

On special occasions, or as a bribe for hiking extra far (they had all just hiked 10 miles in this photo), we bust out the fancy s’mores recipes listed below.

If you really want to take your s’mores up a notch, make sure to invest in some gourmet marshmallows. I didn’t know what all the hype was about until I tried some last year, and now I’m totally SOLD. They are seriously SO GOOD (Our favorite are these mint chocolate chip marshmallows – and yes, I do hide them from my kids so I can eat them ALL).

Before you head out on your camping trip, make sure to get yourself some good roasting sticks – the longer the better. Sure, we all grew up cutting sticks off nearby bushes, but if you’re making a gourmet s’more, the last thing you want is for it to taste like tree bark. These marshmallow roasting sticks are a great deal and they are telescoping so they don’t take up much room in the car either.

The best way to make your s’mores healthier is to substitute one or two of the traditional ingredients. Instead of a caramel apple s’more, instead, just toast the apple slices over the grill with the caramel on top. Instead of a regular s’more, try graham crackers with strawberries and Nutella.
