Toaster Oven S’mores

Toaster Oven S’mores are ooey-gooey summertime bliss that you can enjoy all year! There’s no campfire needed for these s’mores – bake one, two, or a few in just 5 minutes with the help of your little oven’s broiler or bake settings.

Move over small-batch cookies, cupcakes, and hand pies.  This is the toaster oven dessert to end ALL toaster oven desserts!

Easy indoor S’mores have it all:

  • Rich melted chocolate
  • Toasty marshmallows
  • Crumbly sweet graham crackers

So what do you say, want to make some?

How to Make S’mores in the Toaster Oven

Step 1: Break a graham cracker sheet into two squares and place them on your toaster oven baking pan. You can go traditional or use a flavored graham, cinnamon’s my favorite.

Step 2: Top each graham with a square of chocolate and a marshmallow. We’ve made these s’mores with traditional and vegan marshmallows. Both work though the vegan ones are less puffy and a bit crispy on the outside.

Since s’mores are pretty indulgent and only an occasional treat, you might as well go all-out right? So, if you’ve got leftover candy from a recent holiday like Easter or Halloween, swap out the chocolate square for a peanut butter cup or Almond Joy.

Step 3: Place the pan inside of your toaster oven but before you turn it on take a quick peek to make sure you’ve left plenty of space between the heating elements and the marshmallows.

The marshmallows puff up and if they’re too close to the elements they can catch on fire. Yep, that helpful nugget does come from personal experience 😉

Step 4: Set the toaster oven to Broil and cook until the marshmallows are puffed and golden on top, about 2 to 3 minutes (the time will vary depending on your toaster oven).

Like toasting coconut, not much happens at first but once the marshmallows start to brown they can become burnt quickly so don’t walk away.

Step 4: Remove the pan and top with the remaining graham crackers. I like to press the graham down lightly to really smoosh the marshmallow into the chocolate. Then…DIG IN!

Toaster Oven S’mores Tips

Adjust the Broiler Temperature

If your toaster oven/countertop oven has an adjustable broiler take advantage of that feature and turn the temperature down.

On our large countertop oven, we like to turn the Broiler temperature down to 400°F (or medium option) and use the middle rack placement. The s’mores take about 3 minutes to brown and our graham crackers never get burned.

Try the BAKE setting instead!

While you’re assembling the s’mores, preheat your toaster to 400°F (or 375°F if you’re using a convection toaster oven). Then bake the smores until toasty, about 3 to 4 minutes. 

If you’re feeling super impatient you can add the s’mores to the toaster oven while it preheats. Just remember to set a separate timer for 3 to 4 minutes so you don’t forget about them.

If you haven’t tried this before it’s going to ruin the traditional version for you. Because once you’ve had a s’more topped with crunchy peanut butter and fresh strawberry slices there’s just no going back!

Ingredients

  • 2 Graham Cracker Sheets, divided
  • 2 Chocolate squares
  • 2 Marshmallows, vegan or traditional

Instructions

  1. Break a graham cracker sheet in half and place on your toaster oven baking pan.
  2. Top each graham with a square of chocolate and then a marshmallow.
  3. Set your toaster oven to Broil, insert pan and broil until the marshmallows are golden on top, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove the pan, top with remaining graham crackers, and enjoy your toaster oven s’mores!

Notes

Make sure there are at least a few inches of space between the heating elements and the marshmallows before broiling.

Bake Option: Bake the assembled s’mores in a preheated 400°F toaster oven until the marshmallow is puffed and toasted, about 3 to 4 minutes. If using a convection toaster oven, reduce the temperature to 375°F.

Since all toaster ovens are different, watch the marshmallows closely for browning and adjust the cooking time as needed.

  1. My family loved these s’mores!
    We used mini marshmallows and they turned out great!
    Going to try the peanut butter and strawberries next time.

    1. That’s great to hear, Sally! Thanks for leaving a comment, we’ve never tried using mini marshmallows – it’s good to know that they work too 🙂

    1. Hi, Carol, I’m so glad you enjoyed them! How fun is it watching the marshmallows puff up, makes you feel like a kid 🙂

  2. Hahahahahahaha ~ I’ve been making these for decades! What I do is pre-bake the graham crackers a bit, then flip them over and put the chocolate on one side & the marshmallow on the other, then proceed pretty much as you’ve recommended…

    To jazz it up, I use the seasonal marshmallows from a local baker (ginger, pumpkin, etc.) and employ chocolate like Trader Joe’s cold-brew coffee chocolate or Lindt chili chocolate ~ crazy good!
