indoor s’mores


How I wish I could have a backyard with my very own fire pit! Think of the possibilities. Toasted marshmallows! Toasted everything!

The reality is that I live in a small apartment in Queens with no yard (unless you count the garbage alley as a “yard”) and so, no fire pit-toasted marshmallows for me. But it doesn’t mean I can’t have my s’mores and eat ’em too.

You know the deal: chocolate, graham crackers and a jumbo marshmallow. I even made a special diagram just for you! As if you needed one.


Toast ’em in the toaster oven for about 5 minutes on high. I like to wait until the top of the marshmallow gets a little golden, but as soon as it starts expanding it’s warm enough to remove.

The toaster oven is a wonderful machine and it must be used! Marshmallows don’t have the same magic in the microwave. Of course, there was a time when I had no choice. But yes, the toaster oven, if you have one!

Press the remaining graham cracker on top and when the chocolate starts oozing out, think maybe I should’ve used only one piece of chocolate. That probably would’ve sufficed.


But upon first bite, think nope, two’s good!
