Our Favorite Camping Treat: Nutella S’mores!

It’s always frustrated me a bit that when making s’mores while out camping, the chocolate just doesn’t melt.  I know how to roast a perfect marshmallow, melted completely in the middle, wonderfully gooey and creamy, with a nice, light brown shell.  But the chocolate has always been an issue.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  Chocolate in any form is delicious.  I’m not real picky about my chocolate.  But, on a s’more, it really should be melted and oozing out the sides.  I wish I could remember where I first heard about substituting Nutella for chocolate in s’mores, as I’d love to give them credit.  I first tried to make our s’mores this way last summer.  Wow… it’s amazing!

Ingredients:

  • Graham Crackers
  • Nutella (or any hazelnut chocolate spread… Trader Joe’s has a good one)
  • Marshmallows

Preparation:

Spread Nutella on one half a graham cracker (or both, if you’d like!).  Roast a marshmallow over the campfire or coals.  When the marshmallow is soft and melting inside, sandwich it between the two halves of the graham cracker.  That’s it!

Now if you’re a complete novice, and need help with roasting your marshmallow, check out these instructions on wikiHow…. How to Roast Marshmallows.

Enjoy!  We’ll be camping this weekend and can’t wait to have these!

  2. Oh yum! We didn’t make any Smores this time with our camping–at least I didn’t. Some of the group may have. I’m going to be sure to share this with all the family members with young children. Not that Smores are only for children. LOL! Again–YUM!

    1. I have the same problem! And I’ll even make s’mores in the microwave. I typically eat super healthy, so it’s best if I don’t have this stuff in the house. I can’t resist it!
