Who doesn’t love s’mores? Sweet, melted chocolate, ooey, gooey, toasted marshmallow, and nutty graham crackers – I mean it’s a match made in heaven! Today I’m sharing with you a twist on the classic with these Mint Dark Chocolate S’mores.
You’re killin’ me smalls.
This is a delicious twist on the classic we all grew up with. Rich dark chocolate combines with smooth mint to create an elevated s’more that will definitely have you saying “s’more please!”
You can make these 2 ways: by toasting the marshmallow with fire, or in a skillet. Most recipes for skillet s’mores use the oven, but we made these right on our stove-top in less than 5 minutes from start to finish, so that’s the indoor method I’ll share with you today!
We had never made skillet s’mores before, so when we wanted to enjoy these mint dark chocolate s’mores one evening we decided to go that route. After looking up multiple recipes for instruction, I just didn’t feel like pouring cream in (I didn’t have any), or preheating the oven to 450 degrees (too hot for the summer!). So I just improvised and came up with the stovetop method. So easy!
Full disclosure: since these mint dark chocolate s’mores use homemade marshmallow (which is ridiculously easy to make, BTW) the marshmallows aren’t quite as stable as store bought (they don’t have all the extra stabilizers). So, if you want to make them with a flame, go slow and gentle, because they have a tendancy to melt if heated too quickly.
Mint Dark Chocolate S’mores
Scale this recipe depending on how many s’mores or what size skillet you’re making. Some of the links below are affiliate links. That means, at no cost to you, I will receive affiliate commission from your qualifying purchase.
- Fresh Mint Marshmallows (skip dipping in chocolate. You can also use store bought.)
- Graham Crackers
- Dark chocolate bars
- Cast iron skillet
- Kitchen torch (I use this one), sterno can, or flame of choice
- For traditional s’mores, break graham crackers in half, and top with a chocolate square. Cut a piece of fresh mint marshmallow and place on the chocolate. Use a kitchen torch to soften and caramelize the marshmallow. Use can attempt to roast them over an open fire on a skewer if you want – however, you’ll want to go slow since these marshmallows don’t have the stableizers store bought marshmallows do. Top with the other half of the graham cracker.
- For skillet s’mores, put a cast iron skillet over low heat – the lowest your stove will go! Place bars of chocolate in the bottom the pan, filling in as much space as possible. The chocolate bars should immediately start softening and melting.
- Cut pieces of marshmallow and place over the chocolate, filling in your skillet as you go. Let the two melt for a minute or two before removing from the heat and taking your kitchen torch and bruleeing the marshmallow. If you don’t have a kitchen torch, place under your broiler for a second until toasted, just make sure you watch it very carefully.
- Serve with graham cracker squares.
I hope you give this one a try! This would be perfect for a Christmas in July celebration, or just because! What’s your favorite twist on a s’more? Do you add peanut butter? Use different cookies? Let me know in the comments below!
