5 New Ways to Eat S'mores

S'mores PopsCraving some ooey-gooey, fresh-from-the-campfire s'mores? So are we! But you don't need to be a kid (or at camp) to enjoy the flavors of this classic summertime treat. Just whip up one of these easy s'mores-inspired milkshakes, bars, or popsicles. Plus, how to toast marshmallows using the oven, microwave, and toaster oven.

1. Frozen Banana S'moresicle
Cut a peeled banana in half. Insert a popsicle stick (or paper straw) into each banana, then place on baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Freeze for 1 hour. In small bowl, melt 2 oz. semisweet chocolate baking chips in the microwave, stopping to stir every 20 sec. until completely melted. Remove bananas from freezer and use a spoon to coat them with melted chocolate. Roll in crushed graham crackers and mini marshmallows, then return to freezer for 1 hour.

2. Color War S'mores
Break a graham cracker sheet in half. Microwave one half on high for about 20 sec. to soften, then cut out the center of the cracker using a 1" cookie cutter. Place a toasted marshmallow and melted color candy melts on the second cracker half; top with cutout graham cracker.

3. S'mores Bars
These blondies topped with chocolate, graham crackers, and melty marshmallows are bound to be a hit at your next party.

4. S'more Popcorn, Please!
Spread lightly salted popcorn out on parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle with melted chocolate. Allow to dry, then toss chocolate-drizzled popcorn with mini marshmallows, mini semisweet chocolate chips, and mini Teddy Grahams.

5. S'mores Milkshake
In blender, combine 3 c. vanilla ice cream, packed; 2/3 c. chocolate milk (add more if you like your milkshake less thick); and 4 toasted marshmallows until smooth and frothy. Top with more toasted marshmallows.
