I am holding on to summer for dear life so today I decided to make what I consider the most summer dessert ever … homemade Marshmallow S’mores! I love to make Marshmallows so today I made Vanilla Marshmallows with a Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Crust and Chocolate Bars. This is by far my favorite marshmallow recipe for s’mores. And why is that?

Because I used two of my favorite recipes to make this amazing dessert. And I have a vegan marshmallow recipe option too!

And just in case you want more s’mores recipes, there are seven more listed at the bottom of this post! Be sure to scroll down to see them all.

I should also mention that it is National S’Mores Day today. Allthe more reason to make some of these, right?

How to Make My Favorite Marshmallow Recipe for S’mores

Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Marshmallow S’mores are the best! Especially when the recipe is created from two of my favorites.

One of the tricks to making marshmallows is to line the pan with saran wrap. Then spray it with cooking spray. Marshmallows are very sticky and you want to make sure to follow this step.

Line the Pan with Saran Wrap

After you make the peanut butter graham cracker crust, press it into the pan.

Cook the marshmallow mixture per the recipe.

Add the marshmallow on top of the crust and place it in the refrigerator to thicken.

  • • 8 oz. (1/2 box) of powdered or confectioners sugar
  • • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • • 4 oz. jar chunky peanut butter
  • • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • Vanilla Marshmallows
  • • 1/2 cups cold water
  • • 3 packets of gelatin (.75 oz.)
  • • 2 cups sugar
  • • 3/4 cups light corn syrup
  • • 1/4 cup water
  • • 1/8 tsp salt
  • • 1 TBL vanilla
  • Optional: Chocolate Bars

Instructions

Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Crust

1.     Prepare a 7" x 7" baking pan by lining the bottom and edges of the pan with saran wrap. Spray with cooking spray.

2. Mix the first four ingredients. Press into the baking pan.

3.     Refrigerate twenty minutes.

Vanilla Marshmallows

1.     Place 1/2 cup water in the bowl of a stand-up mixer and sprinkle gelatin on top. Let sit while cooking the sugar mixture.

2.     In a small saucepan combine sugar, light corn syrup, and 1/4 cup water. stir until mixed well. Heat until sugar starts to boil and continue to boil for one minute. Remove from
stove.

3.     Add sugar mixture to gelatin and add salt. Turn on the mixer and mix for 12 - 13 minutes until sugar is barely warm and thick. Add vanilla and mix thoroughly.

4.     Put on gloves and spray gloves with cooking spray. Transfer marshmallow mixture into the pan with peanut butter crust. Flatten the top with your fingers and place plastic on top (after covering plastic with cooking spray).

5.     Place in refrigerator until set, about 90 minutes - 3 hours.

6. When set, take marshmallow out of the pan by gently lifting plastic wrap. Cut marshmallows with a long skinny knife, dipping into hot water to prevent sticking. Cut into
pieces.

7.     Top with chocolate bars.

8. Optional - Place in a warm oven or under the broiler for two minutes until marshmallow and chocolate begin to melt. Serve immediately.

For a vegan option, substitute the butter with plant butter and instead of using gelatin, try using agar agar. I haven't tried it but I have heard it works well.

To use agar, simply dissolve it in hot liquid like water. Let it sit for about 60 minutes until it firms up. You don’t need to store it in the refrigerator.

Generally, agar agar powder can replace gelatin at a 1:1 ratio. In other words, if you need 2 teaspoons of gelatin, use 2 teaspoons of powdered agar agar. If you’re using agar agar flakes, use 1 tablespoon for every 1 teaspoon of agar agar powder.

  1. Wow! These look phenomenal. I will definitely have to try these! I like the idea of serving them with the little fun-sized chocolate bars. A variety of chocolate bars would be fun to try, too, like Krackle and Mr. Goodbar!

  2. Will these keep in the fridge if not serving right away? Or would you recommend cutting first and then storing in fridge (or at room temp)?? Thanks! These look amazing.

  3. Just a thought. Might it be possible to put your chocolate on top of the graham crackers before you pour in your marshmallow mixture?That way, the chocolate would melt between the marshmallows and graham crackers.

  4. Hi Leslie, I am from London Uk, I would love to make these, but unfortunately we cannot get corn syrup here, also the Graham Cracker crust, would this be the same as our digestive biscuit which we usually use for the base for cheese cakes.

  5. Excited to try this recipe! 😋 This recipe will help to fill our summer s’mores cravings, since we have fire bans in our area preventing us to have campfire s’mores. 😕

  6. Laughing at myself…I thought you were writing about dresses, long morning! We love s’mores here even in hot weather making them inside. Thanks for sharing your recipes with fun different flavors!
