Toasted marshmallows hide a decadent layer of chocolate and peanut butter chips with this easy, one-skillet wonder. Bring plenty of graham crackers for scooping. And be ready to make s’more of this easy s’mores dip.
For non-roughing-it individuals who seek civilized s’moredom, why not bake them in foil pockets in the oven? For this sweet and simple treat, you’ll need 4 sheets of graham crackers, 2 regular-sized chocolate bars, 8 large marshmallows and non-stick aluminum foil. To make, just place 1 graham cracker square in the center of a piece of foil, then layer with a half of a chocolate bar and 2 uncooked marshmallows and top with a second graham cracker square. Wrap the aluminum foil around each s’more to form a pocket and set all 4 foil pockets on a cookie sheet. Bake the foil pockets in a preheated 350°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes. No marshmallow casualties, and easy-peasy cleanup—that’s a s’more win-win!
’Tis but a trifle to make these portable desserts that are perfect for a hungry crowd. Simply layer graham cracker cookies, ready-made chocolate pudding and mini marshmallows into clear plastic punch cups for fast and fun parfaits that little ones will love.

Baggie it up for some mess-free s’mores to enjoy by the handful.
