For extra flavor, you can coarsely chop the graham crackers or crush them gently in a plastic bag. Place them on the pan and add a drizzle of melted butter. Mix them with your hand and press them into the pan, then follow the rest of the steps.
How about double s’mores bark? After you take the pan out of the oven, you can add another layer of Graham crackers, a layer of fresh marshmallows, and a generous drizzle of chocolate syrup. Enjoy the extra gooey, chewy, and chocolatey layer.
Personalize your s’mores bark with a sprinkle of crushed nuts on top of the marshmallow layer. You can also sprinkle some chocolate chips before placing the pan in the oven. It adds the perfect crunch next to the stretchy marshmallows.
Are you a fan of peanut butter? Warm the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until it’s pourable. Then, drizzle them over the marshmallows before sending the pan to the oven for a delightful, nutty flavor.
Who can say no to caramel? Toss some caramel chips or chopped caramel squares on the mini marshmallows and then bake. It adds a gooey, sweet contrast to the crunch of Graham crackers.

How to Melt Chocolate
Melting chocolate may seem daunting because chocolate easily seizes or becomes scorched. But if handled properly, you will get smooth and silky chocolate. Here are two ways to melt chocolate: using a microwave or a double boiler.
Melting chocolate in a double boiler is a foolproof method, especially if you are planning to melt large quantities of sugar. You will need a heatproof bowl, a saucepan, and water.
First, fill the saucepan with about an inch of water and bring it to a simmer. Then, place the bowl on top of the saucepan and put the chocolate chunks in it. Stir occasionally while keeping an eye on the chocolate. Once it has mostly melted, remove it from the heat.
You can also melt chocolate in the microwave. Here is how to do it:
Time needed: 1 minute
How to melt chocolate in the microwave
- Get a Suitable Bowl
Choose a microwave-safe bowl. Make sure it is clean and dry.
- Chop the Chocolate
If you have chocolate chips, place them in the bowl. If you are using a chocolate bar, chop it into small, uniform pieces so it evenly melts.
- Microwave and Stir
Place the bowl in the microwave and set it on medium power for 30 seconds. Take it out and stir it. If the chocolate does not look smooth and silky, continue microwaving in 10-15 second intervals at medium power, stirring each time till you get the desired consistency.
If mini marshmallows are not available, you can use regular-sized ones. You can keep them as a whole, or you can break them into smaller pieces.
If you prefer a thicker crust, you can add a few more Graham crackers. It’s up to you!
To speed up the process, you can place it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. If you place the pan in the freezer, don’t leave it there for more than an hour. It will be too hard to break.
Remember to be cautious while broiling and handling hot ingredients.
An Indulging Twist on Classic Campfire Treat

After you break them, you can store the chunks in an airtight container on the kitchen counter for one week or in the refrigerator for one month.
