My son has asked me to make him some s'mores. I've never had them before (really!). I know that they are a campfire tradition using marshmallows/chocolate/graham wafers but has anyone successfully made them at home? Can anyone suggest a particular brand / type of chocolate (would you use chocolate chips?) and graham wafers that are safe for peanut / nut allergies? Thanks!

I have made them with the Teddy Graham crakers and melted Hershey chocolate chips and of course the marshmellows. I call it Teddy Smores. I know it's not the same thing but it still tastes delicious.

Take care,

We have used aero bars/or mars bars with graham crackers with marshmellows.

Christie (the cracker and cookie company) has graham crackers that would work for it. I haven't bought them recently, but they used to be safe for me (peanut & sesame allergy). Christie label's for *may contain*.

Also Baker's Chocolate as big blocks of chocolate. Baker's is made by Kraft (I do trust Kraft labelling). Again, I haven't purchased recently, but they label for *may contain* when there's a risk.

The chocolate chips would work too.

Thanks everyone -- might sound silly for asking but...do you put graham crackers in bottom of pan, marshmallows and chocolate and then more graham crackers on top? Bake in oven? Just enough to melt chocolate and marshmallows I'm guessing?
