what is the best chocolate to use for making S'Mores?

my sister and i tried them last year with dark chocolate, but the chocolate didn't get soft enough.

is the plain Hershey milk chocolate bar really the best one to use?

Wow I haven't had smores since I was a kid but we always used a Hershey bar. It melted perfectly with a hot fire roasted marshmallow.

thanks, goldy, i will poke around the grocery store Friday morning and skip the good dark chocolate!

Hershey's is most definitely the best :)

I like Cadbury Dairy Milk :D

And don't get those new campfire marshmallows. They get too heavy when they start to melt and just fall off the stick :(

good tip, thanks CC!

Yup...dark chocolate doesn't melt right.

Plain old milk chocolate hershey bar. My kids love the big marshmallows...only need one to make a smore but they do have a tendency to fall off if you take too long to cook them.

we didn't even end up making s'mores last weekend!


you know that Bailey's Irish Cream commercial where they put out the flames of burning marshmallows by dunking them in a glass of Bailey's???

guess what we did?


first we dunked them in a glass of Kahlua, then in a glass of Bailey's! yum, yum, yum!

Last time we made s'mores I smeared Biscoff spread on the graham crackers. I'm guessing if you like Nutella that may be good and Jiff has some new mocha something-or-another spreads now that would probably be good.

I've been using President's Choice S'mores Kits and they are PERFECT. I was a camp counselor during the summer so I made them in the microwave (graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow: 30 seconds) for the girls in my cabin on the last night and they turned out absolutely amazing. I may or may not have had 8 s'mores in one night.

Anyways, the chocolate in the kit is milk chocolate (not Hershey's though, a PC brand I suppose) but whatever it is, it is the best s'mores chocolate I've ever tasted. All in all, I'd say go with a thin milk chocolate bar, one that can be melted pretty easily.

Wow, now I really want a s'more (or eight) and it's 12:35AM. Ok time for bed.

thanks for the tip! i saw those kits on sale at the Real Canadian Superstore last week. might be worth it to get a couple since i use my little outdoor fit bowl until the end of October!


(nice to have another Canadian around here!)
