How to Make a Smore in the Microwave

Many of us have some amazing memories related to a traditional smore. While for some, it is a sweet childhood memory filled with awe when you see a marshmallow melting away from a campfire. Whereas for others, it can be a fun camping trip with friends that include late-night ghost stories, jokes, and s’mores. Either way, s’mores are a sweet part of life and loved by just about everyone.

Now, if you think you can only make smores over a campfire, let me tell you, it is just not true. Thankfully you can relive those amazing memories and enjoy the crisp graham cracker filled with gooey marshmallows and rich chocolate without needing to go camping.

A microwave is an amazing kitchen invention, and it can be used to make indoor smores at home! So, if you are wondering how to make a smore in the microwave, keep reading to find out.

What is a s’more?

If you are a camping lover, you will definitely know of s’mores. In simple words, s’mores are a sandwich. The fluffy, melted marshmallow is often accompanied by melted chocolate. The outside is graham cracker. So, we can say that it is a graham cracker filled with melted chocolate and marshmallow. S’mores are traditionally made by heating the marshmallow over a campfire. The hot marshmallow is then placed in between graham crackers with a piece of chocolate.

Can you make a s’more in a microwave?

If you think s’mores are only for a campfire, think again! You don’t really have to plan an outdoor camping trip every time you crave s’mores. There are a few other super easy ways to make them at home. In fact, the easiest way to make and enjoy s’mores is by making them in the microwave. Yes, that’s right! You can happily make s’mores in a microwave in less than 5 minutes. You don’t need any over-the-top equipment. With a few simple and basic ingredients, you can enjoy deliciously melting s’mores anytime the craving hits.

Why should you make a s’more in the microwave?

Well, there are so many reasons to cook in the microwave. And when it comes to making s’mores, the list even gets longer. If you are wondering why you should try making smores in the microwave, here are a few reasons for you:

  • First and foremost, you don’t have to go outdoor or set up a fire to make s’mores. Most people associate making s’mores with a campfire or outdoor trip. So, if you are craving s’mores, making it in the microwave saves you tons of effort and time.
  • Making smores in the microwave is super easy. It is a 5-minute process without any fuss or additional equipment.
  • You get the perfect texture of s’mores, the marshmallows and chocolate always melt just right.
  • You can make s’mores for your kids in the microwave and make them happy. It is a perfect treat for any time of the day.

Tips for making a microwave smore

When making s’mores in the microwave, keep a few things in mind:

  • You can use any type of chocolate for making s’mores in the microwave. I, however, prefer using milk chocolate. That’s because milk chocolate melts better than any other chocolate.
  • To allow more intense heat and mess-free cooking, use a microwave lid on the plate. It will save you from having to clean a mess caused by an oozy marshmallow. Plus, the steam created can aid in quick and better melting.
  • Although marshmallows work just fine, if you want your marshmallow to spread more on the graham cracker, you can also use marshmallow fluff. It is easy to spread on the graham cracker, and you can enjoy a more marshmallowy flavor.
  • Now when taking the plate off the microwave, you need to be extra careful. That’s because the melted chocolate and the marshmallow will be super hot. Not to mention the plate. So, make sure you don’t touch the s’more before it cools a bit.
  • The melting of the marshmallow and the time depends on two things, i.e., the power of the microwave and the number of marshmallows and graham crackers you are cooking. You can make s’mores in large batches, but then you will need to place them for a longer time in the microwave.

Variation ideas

Well, there are so many different things you can try on s’mores. For instance, you can choose a chocolate bar or use chocolate syrup to drizzle on puffed smores. You can use white chocolate, dark chocolate, or even a chocolate spread.

Similarly, you can also use strawberry syrup or try maple syrup on your smores. Also, decorating smores with sprinkles or mini chocolate chips is a great idea, especially when you are making these for kids. Like peanut butter? Use a peanut butter cup instead of plain chocolate. You can also add some regular or colored miniature marshmallows too.

Can you store microwave s’mores?

Well, as the marshmallow gets cold, it will retain its original shape. So, I don’t see any reason for you to store these. Because they are so simple and quick to make, you would want to make and enjoy fresh s’mores instead of making and storing them. You will have to reheat them eventually.
