Happy National S’Mores Day! If you didn’t know this holiday existed, mark it on your calendar and pull out the marshmallows. It’s time for summer’s best treat!

We’ve featured a few s’mores recipes here at Simply Real Moms (click here, here and here to see them), but the one I’m going to share in celebration of National S’Mores Day is extra special.

My 11-year-old niece, Emma, is a budding culinary genius (in my humble opinion) and came up with this very clever recipe for a No-Melt S’Mores.

She brought them to a family gathering and they were a BIG hit. These little bites served up all the delicious flavor of a s’more with none of the mess!

Chef Emma with my daughter, Isla


  • Large marshmallows
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Melted butter
  • Hershey’s chocolate bar

NOTE: I did not list amounts as you can make as many or few of these as you’d like. A half dozen of them make a great weeknight dessert, or make the whole bag of marshmallows for a picnic or potluck.


  1. With a butter knife, cut a deep slit in the top of each marshmallow.
  2. Press two rectangles of a Hershey’s bar into slit.
  3. Dip marshmallow into melted butter.
  4. Immediately dip into graham cracker crumbs and gently roll to coat.
  5. Sit marshmallows in refrigerator to let the crumbs set up (or, if you can’t wait, eat right away!).
